Umbilical Cord Stump

Posted on Nov 19, 2012 by in Essential Oils, singles, Home Making, parenting, Health | 0 comments


There are many ways to care for your newborns umbilical cord stump.  Here is a new tip I recently learned to care for your new baby using therapeutic grade essential oils.

Apply a couple of drops of frankincense oil on site two times a day until stump is healed, to support the inregumentary (skin) system.   For best results, apply frankincense to stump immediately after cord is cut.

I also only recommend the use of the highest quality oils, specifically Young Living essential oils.  The most therapeutic frankincense is Boswellia Carteri or Boswellia Sacra.  If you are wanting therapeutic results make sure your frankincense is one of these varieties.

If you would like to delve a little deeper into frankincense research you can read more details here.
