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.
First, I pray over my children every morning and every evening. Out loud. So they hear me. I think it's important that they know I do this.
When I apply oils on my children, I most often apply it to earlobes or temples or neck. It's easy and accessible and rubbing ears is calming and loving.
I keep Harmony on my desk and when something occurs that needs to be dealt with, I dab a bit on my suprasternal notch - ya know, that little "hole" at the base of your throat? I just love the Harmony blend - Lavender, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, Orange, Angelica, Geranium, Hyssop, Spruce, Sage Lavender, Rosewood, Lemon, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Bergamot, Palmarosa, and Rose. A veritable potpourri of many of my favorite delicious smells to calm me down and bring my soul back in harmony with God and my family.
If a child has an issue - a tantrum, fight, or something of the sort, I dab a bit of Harmony on her throat and then we get out The Child-Training Bible and discuss the situation. And we pray and all is usually well. Sometimes, I have to dab a drop of Lavender on blonde temples to calm an upset child after the whole ordeal. Myrrh helps with anger when forgiveness is an issue. Ask me how we know about that!
Now Kate will come to me and ask for an oil for a specific problem she's having. If she can't breathe well through her nose (RC) or feels anger (Frankincense or Myrrh) or has a booboo (Lavender), she knows an oil will help her. And that girl will bring me the Child Training Bible herself and turn to the issue she needs to pray about! She's the easy one..."Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!" John 1:47.
Valor is necessary for us to get through our days. I seriously can't function as well if I forget my Valor. It's like armor against stress. It gives me inner strength. It's been called "chiropractor in a bottle" and it really does adjust attitudes, LOL. I use it like perfume every morning on my wrists. I masSage it on Liz's feet in the evenings. I dab it on Tori, especially if she has something social since she is painfully shy and a terrible perfectionist!
Frankincense is my miracle oil. It is good for everything. It certainly does help with emotional balance. Tori and I rub it on our faces for moisture and to help ward off moodiness. I love the way it smells. We imagine we're like Esther, getting all prettified in and out for our day. It certainly improves our focus during our Bible time!
I diffuse Citrus Fresh or Peace & Calming or Brain Power during homeschool time to help us stay focused and not get too hyper during fun school moments. And they really smell great, so that's a bonus! See more at:
