** ALSO EXCELLENT to apply a bit of moist heat on the back for a few minutes after application if you can. For toddlers even a warm moist towel, warm hot water bottle , or heating pad, and for my infant I use a happi tummi and put it on him backwards. (you can find them on amazon) very handy!
Let me share with you what Dr. Hill shared in Living magazine about why we apply essential oils on the spine : ” Along the spine we have a higher concentration of neurological and arterial activity. This concentrated activity creates greater blood flow and absorption capabilities, which allow for greater distribution and heightened function of the Essential Oils. Gently massaging or using heat when applying Essential Oils on the spine is a great way to take advantage of the sensitivity of the neurological structures and cellular functions of the body and can enhance the absorption of Essential Oils topically.”
