Ever had a crying infant that you just can’t soothe? Or a toddler in the midst of a temper tantrum? We have probably all been there. One of my favorite remedies for these times is an aromatherapy spray. Not only for the upset child, but for the parent too! This blend of essential oils and flower essences can help bring peace to any situation.
It is great for crying, fussing, overtired or overstimulated babies & toddlers. It is helpful for traumatic events. It is also really nice to incorporate into bedtime & nap time routines to help a child calm down and transition to sleepy time. And again, it can be great for the mom or dad who is trying to find their inner calm & peace in the face of a screaming child…which is not always easy, right?
