Now let’s take a look at several common childhood afflictions.
If your child is experiencing chills, use Lavender, diluted at the proper ratio for her age (See Step 9 above), and rub behind the ears, temples, and down the spine. Also, place one drop of properly diluted PEPPERMINT on the bottom of your child's foot. Allow her to wrap up in a blanket as the oils begin to work to cool the body from the inside, which will in turn reduce the sensation of having chills.
Nothing soothes a sore, achy child like a warm bath! Try this Epsom salt bath recipe next time your little one has this complaint.
ACHY BREAKY BATH RECIPE
1/2 cup Epsom Salts
3 drops Frankincense
3 drops Lemon
3 drops Lavender
3 drops Melaleuca
Add all ingredients to a glass or stainless steel bowl and mix well. Draw a warm bath and allow your child to soak for 15 minutes.
Potty training and a child's ability to "hold it" through the night all depend on a lot of different factors. In general, though, most children are fully potty trained, without the need for a pull up at nighttime, by about five years of age. If your child is older than that, and nighttime accidents are still happening, give this ROLLER BOTTLE RECIPE a try!
NIGHT-TIME, DRY-TIME RECIPE
20 drops Cypress
10 drops Cilantro
Place oils in a 10 ml roller bottle and top off with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Place on the bottoms of the child's feet before bed.
NOTE: This recipe is diluted at the proper ratio for children ages two to six years old. It is not recommended for use on younger children. For an older child, increase the recipe to 30 drops of Cypress and 20 drops of Cilantro, and then top off with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
