One evening my three-year-old daughter had a terrible attitude - crying, whining, and sulking. Bad attitudes at the age of three are pretty common, but I could tell something was wrong this time.

I put her in the bath tub, which usually improves most of her bad moods. She continued to cry and whine about anything and everything. She never could explain to me what hurt or what was wrong. I asked her if she would like a Raindrop Technique after her bath and she nodded eagerly. I measured her height before beginning and adapted the Raindrop Technique for her as follows:

1. Place all the drops of RDT oils in a glass roll-on bottle EXCEPT Valor.

4 drops of Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Aroma Siez, and Peppermint
8 drops of Marjoram and Cypress

Observe where the oils stop in the bottle and add a little less than an equal amount of Ortho Ease massage oil. (approximately 30 drops) Swirl around to combine oils.

2. Begin by balancing shoulders with 3 drops of Valor. Balance feet with 6 drops of Valor.

3. Roll-on RDT oils over spine Vita Flex point on one foot once. Vita Flex towards the big toe. Repeat on opposite foot.

4. Rub a small amount of V-6 oil on the child's spine, bottom to skull.

5. Roll-on RDT oils generously on both side of spine, from bottom to the skull. Feather in 3-6-9.

6. Finger circles gently 3 times, Vita Flex beside spine 3 times, Saw-move and gentle skull pull 3 times each, Stretch and Quiver.

7. Indian Rub with Ortho Ease and gentle massage.

8. End with 5 drops of Valor feathered over spine.

My daughter absolutely LOVED receiving this treatment. It only took about 20 minutes to perform. The time was shortened a lot by placing the oils all together in the roll-on bottle. This worked great for a three-year-old who usually has a serious case of the wiggles!

After the RDT her attitude had improved greatly, but I decided to place 1 drop of Joy over her heart and rubbed it in circles. She loved the smell of the "flower-oil". I measured her again and was amazed to see her spine had realigned enough for her to grow half an inch!

After the RDT and Joy oil, she was smiling, happy, and was very snuggly and kissy with her mommy. She told me she felt "much better". COMPLETE attitude change in my daughter! Her especially loving and obedient attitude continued at least three days later.
