I’m in a blissful deep sleep, dreaming of something lovely. The evil voice comes from far away...”Mom!” It’s an urgent whisper and my mom senses bring me back immediately. “Drewzie’s sick,” whispers his twin.
I roust myself quickly and go to my boy’s aid. I smooth back his hair and feel his hot skin. I get the “bucket” just in case, and it’s needed within minutes (I know the drill...)
He feels better, but he can’t rest. I get up and get the DigestZen. I rub some on his belly and ask him to touch some to his tongue (veteran mom moment: if this wasn’t my own child that I knew was familiar with oils, I would have put a drop in water...but I am too tired to get up again and I know he can tolerate the strength.)
To my relief he whispers, “That helped,” and drifts off to sleep. I put a drop in my hand and breathe in the soothing vapors. It settles me too, and we sleep until the next wave.
This is why I believe everyone needs these tools in their home: to be able to soothe and help your child in the middle of the night is priceless.
As the sun rises, I put On Guard “the protective blend" in the diffuser to keep the rest of us healthy. The antioxidant powerhouses of cinnamon and clove will give us all immune support we need to stay healthy.
I make my boy his own roller of Digestzen by diluting 20 drops in some fractionated coconut oil and place it by his side. Now he can roll some on when he feels the nausea setting in again.
Now I’m gonna try to nap!
