I am not a fan of using medicine on my children especially when they are so new to the world. dōTERRA’s essential oils are SAFE for children and babies, even as young as newborns.
This is a picture of an ear infection my son, Carter, had when he was about a month and a half. The yellow goop is not coming out of his ear. I tried washing it with a wet, warm wash cloth but it didn't help. His outer ear had the infection. Yes, you can get an ear infection on the outside of the ear! Who knew?
On Sunday afternoon, I decided to put dōTERRA’s Melaleuca essential oil on his ear every hour the rest of the day. By the end of the day, I had applied it to his ear at least 5 times. I was so excited when I woke up Monday MORNING; the skin on his ear was flaking off revealing healthy skin underneath. I was able to wash it off and he was as good as new. I was so surprised that the essential oil had worked so fast!
At his 2 month appointment I showed his doctor the pictures of his ear to find out what it was. She confirmed that it was an ear infection but she couldn't figure out why it went away without antibiotics. I told her that I put Melaleuca Essential Oil on it. She didn't know what to say.
What a VICTORY!
