Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

As a mother, I am always happy when I find natural ways to help children cope with their new and unfamiliar emotions. The three oils that I find indispensable in emotional childcare are Grounding, Joy, and Humility.

Grounding is highly effective for panicky or hysterical tantrums, such as when there has been an injury.

Joy, I have found, is good for despairing times, such as when the child has received unfavorable news. This is also a good oil to use for nightmares.

Humility is the oil I choose when the child is having an angry fit - because generally, it is their pride that has been most wounded.

Sometimes I apply a drop topically over the heart, but I primarily use direct inhalation. For young children, you can hand them the cap of the bottle to smell. Older children can hold the bottle and inhale for themselves, or can be taught to apply a drop to their neck and inhale from the cupped palms as would an adult.

I have found these oils to be beneficial, and my children will request oils by name when they are feeling less than their best.
