A fellow essential oil wellness advocate, Deborah Dushku Gardner, has spent a lot of time researching a natural way to help her support son some behavioral concerns. She had the mindset that she would be able to find a way to create balance and harmony for her son. What she came up with is The Peaceful Child Blend. I would encourage you to read her blog that chronicles her experience and that shares details of how she came up with this blend.
Several people who use essential oils, have tried the blend and have had amazing results. Some report their child having a calm and peaceful demeanor with regular use of the oils.
The Peaceful Child blend is formulated with perfect amounts of Certified Pure (CP) essential oils. These essential oils offer the complete spectrum of all possible supportive properties and are extremely concentrated. The essential oils used in the blend are: French lavender, marjoram, clary sage, vetiver, Boswellian frankincense, ylang ylang, and fractionated coconut oil.
The oils in this blend are known to support:
emotional stability in kids. It is stabilizing, nourishing and protecting to the central nervous system. It creates a deep calm and frees the nerves from tension. Restores feelings of hope and mental strength and promotes a positive outlook on life. Eases anger and quiets mind chatter.
Everyone smells oil blends different; Deborah describes the scent as warm, deep, rich, soothing, stabilizing, comforting, languid
Directions: 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).
Many thanks to Deborah for creating the blend and sharing it. Please let me know if you would like the actual recipe and the essential oils it calls for.
