Aromatherapy and Bach Flowers elixirs can help calm a child who is anxious or under stress, reduce nausea, discomfort and pain, and promote healthy sleep. Aromatherapy is nature turned in aromas.
The essential oils can do wonders while working with kids. It has even been proven that it’s a great “back to school” ally for your little humans who are feeling little butterflies in their stomach as the new challenges of a new class environment comes.
The oils used in aromatherapy are called “essential” in the sense that they are the extracted essence of a plant’s fragrance. That processing results in highly concentrated oils which can be toxic if swallowed and harmful if applied in pure form to the skin. As oils, they are also flammable.
In one study, six- to fourteen-year-old children who were previously diagnosed as having ADHD, and who were not under medication, were treated by one of three essential oils (cedarwood oil, vetiver, and lavender). The researchers found that the oil that had the greatest impact on the kids’ behavior was Vetiver, then Cedarwood, then Lavender.
Do not replace medical treatment with essential oils. If your child is under medication and you would like to try out the impact of essential oils on their behavior, speak with their physician first and then with someone speciliazed in Aromatherapy. Whenever you are in doubt, do not hesitate to get professional advice from qualified Aromatherapist.
Not all essential oils are safe for use with kids. It is also important not to go overboard when using essential oils with an anxious child. For example, you could try one essential oil at a time, especially if you are just starting out on these oils with your child.
The Bach Flower Remedies are a natural stress and emotional relief, safe for children. Children deal with every day fears, daydreaming, self-esteem, worries, sadness, self-acceptance, school issues etc.
Children respond quickly to the Bach Flower approach because they have not had years of unresolved emotional imbalances.
