It’s that time of year. Weather is changing from day to day, hour to hour even… and the effects of that are seen most in our children’s noses! (and if you’re like me, your face is pretty congested too :/). So a daytime runny nose is gross and annoying. We can deal with that! But a night time runny nose?? The baby can’t lay flat, the toddler is sniffling non-stop, lack of oxygen wakes them up SO DARN FREQUENTLY, baby can’t use their pacifier, our World. Simply. Sucks. I’ve made some congestion mixes before and even used a congestion bath (that bath worked great, but who can sleep in the bath?). But this little combo here has been miraculous. Not just a one time miracle… the baby has not made a peep until at LEAST 3am, sometimes even 6AM, for the LAST FOUR NIGHTS! Holy mother of God, what have I stumbled upon. I believe that the answer to that is R.C. This is the newest addition to my collection and I wonder why it’s taken so long to come to me lol it’s only like 10 bucks. Anyways, I put two drops each of Young Living Thieves, Lavender, and R.C. into the diffuser at bedtime and let that puppy run. When it runs out a few hours later, I’ve been filling it with more plain water. The thought process here is that maybe the water will pick up some of the residual oils as well as provide some humidification… and background noise too 🙂 Here’s a great visual on my newest beloved R.C.:
