I discovered this amazing essential oil blend in mid 2014. It is a great blend to reach for when the kids are getting hyper and need to relax and chill out a little bit. It helps instill calm back into the household. I love adding it to Epsom Salt baths especially after swimming in a chlorine pool the kids go in little horrors and come out little angels I kid you not.
Why Peaceful Child Essential Oil Blend?
Peaceful Child was created by a mum whose son had Tourettes Syndrome. His behaviors and disorders were starting to overwhelm her and she had to find a natural solution. Children with this syndrome typically have a variety of behavioral disorders, such as impulsivity, oppositional defiance disorder, ADHD, child depression, OCDs, and anger management issues. They may also suffer from insomnia. Autistic and Asperger children also typically deal with many of these problems. This formula is also very helpful to adults who suffer with anxiety or emotional trauma.
Peaceful Child will not cure disorders, but it is very nourishing to the brain and aids in balancing the entire central nervous system. When used regularly, it seems to diminish the intensity of the above-mentioned disorders and behavioral problems.
Here is the recipe for making you own Peaceful Child blend
Get a 10ml glass roller bottle like this one.
14 drops Vetiver
5 drops Ylang Ylang
3 drops Frankincense
2 drops Clary Sage
1 drops Marjoram
5 drops Lavender
Fill the remainder for the roller bottle with Fractionated Coconut Oil
Here are the directions for applying this oil
Shake before each use, then apply 1 drop to the bottom of each foot and over the heart before bedtime and first thing in the morning. If the child is having a really difficult time, also apply to the back of the neck on either side of the spine. Repeat mid-day, if necessary. For a sedative effect,Peaceful Child must also be applied to the insides of the wrist or under the nose so that the vapors can be inhaled while resting (place hands up by the face).
There are a couple of other oils from that can help mood management. I diffuse the grounding Blend in the car on the way to school and also apply to the kids wrists diluted with Fractionated Coconut oil. I also like to apply it if I find myself in a stressful situation. Another of my favourites is the calming Blend which assists me and the kids in getting to sleep easily.
