This week, we welcomed my new grandson, Cole, into the world!
I can not tell you how excited and grateful that I was able to spend lots of time with my daughter and our new little boy. What a gift!
Obviously, my daughter has her own collection of Ruccello Olive Oil stocked at her house, so I was able to guide her not only in the magic of motherhood, but also in the healing magic of Olive Oil :).
Here are 4 ways for new moms to use Olive Oil to heal, protect and make those first few days a tiny bit easier:
- Leading up to her labor, my daughter began to complain about red and chapped patchy areas on her face.I asked her if she was using Olive Oil like I do and she admitted that she had not (kids never listen!). So, I told her to add 4 drops to her hand and pat the oil onto her face. Within 3 days there was a noticeable difference! (You can use this method daily and I also recommend creating an Olive Oil scrub with sea salt for use weekly.)
- My daughter has chosen to breastfeed her baby and being a “prepared mommy”, she bought a highly recommended product to protect her nipples. Unfortunately, baby Cole was having none of it. She swapped the store-bought product for Olive Oil and both mommy and baby are satisfied.
- Can you guess the third use we found for Olive Oil? For my grandson’s booty! Olive Oil is great at helping to prevent diaper rash and as a bonus it’s completely natural and toxic free!
- The fourth use is a staple for everyone in my family: lots of healthy food! As my daughter heals and bonds with her new baby, I am kept busy in the kitchen cooking lots of healthy food using some of my favorite Extra Virgin Olive Oils in every meal! I rest easier knowing that our Ruccello Olive Oils are packed with vitamins and nutrients that will keep our family healthy for generations.
The many healing benefits of Olive Oil is nothing short of magic. However, what makes that “magic” happen is very real. High quality Olive Oil is packed with polyphenols and oleocanthal — micronutrients that have anti-inflammatory and other health benefits.
To get the most out of your Olive Oil Home Remedies, remember to use very high quality oils like our line of Ruccello Olive Oils.
Cheers to a healthy life!
