Essential Oils can help what??

Oils are so easy to put in a diffuser while your kids sleep! Are you an oil believer yet?

Check out this statement from the article below.

Essential Oils May Improve ADHD Symptoms

Research by the late Dr. Terry S. Friedmann, a physician who believed in treating the body, mind and spirit as one, showed that vetiver oil,  (vetiver is a type of Indian grass) was beneficial for children with ADHD.

When the children inhaled the oil three times a day for 30 days they had improved brain wave patterns and behavior and did better in school. Eighty percent of the children also improved when using cedarwood oil similarly.

Cedarwood essential oil was chosen for the study because it has a high concentration of sesquiterpenes (they make up 50 percent of its constituents), which improve oxygenation of brain cells.

Vetiver is known to calm and balance the nervous system while stimulating the circulatory system, according to Friedmann. He explained:

“When the essential oil is inhaled, the micro droplets are carried to the limbic system of the brain, which is that portion that is the processing center for reason, emotion and smell, and to the hypothalamus, which is the hormone command center.

The essential micro droplets are also carried to the lungs where they enter the circulatory system.”

Recipes

COLDS!!

Colds! 

Do you get colds? What about your kids?! Of course they do. A cold can be anything from runny or stuffy nose, congestion, cough, sore throat or sneezing. So of course, we all get colds!

There are a few items we don’t ever run out of in our house when it is cold season. Breathe stick and Breathe drops! We use these religiously in our home in the winter.

The other thing that I make up is the “Cold Recipe”

I put it in a smaller roller bottle that I get at Aroma Tools and add the following:

5 drops of Lemon

5 drops of Thyme

1tbsp of fractionated coconut oil.

You simply apply a small amount to the throat, forehead,chest and back of the neck 2-3 times a day.

The roller bottle shown is 1/6 ounce.

These oils are safe to use on kids topically.

This came in handy so many times for me this winter!

The thing I love about oils is the fact of your kids not refusing them! Cough syrup they hate…they don’t want to take it. This is a super simple way to apply it, even when they are just laying there. Fighting them to take their medicine is over with oils!
