3 Clean Swaps for Kid's Wellness


Today, we're going to cover the topic of kids and wellness. I'm going to share with you some amazing products for immunity support, supplements, skin care, and daily routine products for kids and teens!


Keep in mind that when we use personal care products, whether in lotions, moisturizers, shampoos... these all come into direct contact with our kiddos' skin. Our skin and our sense of smell, through our limbic system absorbs soooo many ingredients, and a lot of those are toxic- even when they are allowed in our products.


Did you know... when something is applied topically

  • Within 22 seconds it reaches your brain?

  • Within 2 minutes they can be found in your bloodstream?

  • Within 20 minutes they are in every cell of your body?

Since becoming a mom, of a teenage boy, I realized just how much wellness REALLY matters what products I allow as the gatekeeper of my home. I’m so grateful for all the things, here are a few we use for all the things.


Immunity + Supplements

Little Kids

  • KidScents® MightyPro™ is a unique, synergistic blend of prebiotics and probiotics in a supplement specially formulated for children. Packaged in easy, one-dose packets that can be taken almost anywhere you go, this supplement features over 8 billion active, live cultures to support digestive and immune health.* Featuring a great-tasting formula that can be added to cold food and drinks for easy consumption, MightyPro supports gastrointestinal and immune health and maintains gut health in children, keeping them up and active.

  • KidScents® MightyVites™ include a full range of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that deliver whole-food multinutrient support to your child’s general health and well-being. MightyVites benefit from Orgen-Kid®, a nutrient-dense, food-based superfruit, plant, and vegetable complex. Free of preservatives and artificial colors and flavors, these delicious, berry-flavored chewables give your children full nutritional support.

  • KidScents® MightyZyme™ contains enzymes that naturally occur in the body that support and assist the digestive needs of growing bodies and the normal digestion of foods.


Teens


  • Life 9® is a proprietary, high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from nine beneficial bacteria strains.

  • Inner Defense™ is what we use any time we feel something weakening our body. It is also great to use for overall skin support and ridding our bodies of toxins as a daily supplement. It reinforces systemic defenses, creates unfriendly terrain for yeast and fungus, promotes healthy respiratory function, and contains potent essential oils such as Oregano, Thyme, and Thieves®, which are rich in thymol, carvacrol, and eugenol for immune support.

  • Thieves® Roll-On is an essential oil blend to support and boost your immune system. We roll this on our feet and spine 2-3x a day for best results. And it smells amazing!!!

  • NingXia Red: The benefits include support for energy levels, normal cellular function, and whole-body and normal eye health. A daily shot of 2–4 ounces helps support overall wellness with powerful antioxidants.



Skin Care


Taking care of your kiddo's largest organ, their skin, is crucial. Whether you're working to improve the appearance of their skin or taking care of some of troubled areas, something in your mama heart just wants them to be and feel their best, no matter their age. Here are some things we recommend for skin care!


Rose Ointment can stand alone and here is why...

Neosporin who!? We’ve only used this for years! Non-cystic acne, aging skin, babies/children, minor cuts, chapped or cracked skin, dry skin, stretch marks, seals and protects and age related wrinkles, cuticles & more!!! My favorite application is for chapped lips.


It protects and nourishes the skin by helping to maintain the natural pH balance of the skin! It also soothes very dry and chapped skin! Tip: Simply take a butter knife and mash it up until desired consistency to soften the rose ointment. I honestly didn't mind it before but this was super easy and definitely softens it up a ton!


Little Kids

  • Soothe delicate skin with Young Living’s mild and gentle baby balm.
