confused over which type of aromatherapy to use for child

by Karen

My 7 yr old grandchild is very high-strung, to put it nicely. I noticed on a recent weekend outing that I gave her a lavender scented towelette that I had purchased a while back. She literally calmed down right in front of me and just kept smelling the towelette until it was no longer any good.

My question is: What type of product would you recommend for making her,some type of body mist or pillow for her room? I want to try starting out with the Lavender and see if there still is a marked difference in her behavior. Can a small amount of essential oil be purchased and put into a small spray bottle? I would only want to make small batches at a time because she will go through it fast im sure.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Lavender for children
by: Anonymous

Hi Karen,

Lavender essential oil is very safe for children, but they should not be exposed to more than 5 drops daily. The best oil to buy is high altitude French lavender and a diffuser. You can put 1-2 drops in the diffuser for your daughter's bedroom whenever she needs to calm down. You can also make pillows with lavender flowers, most herbal stores carry them. You can also purchase an amulet for her to wear around her neck with some lavender inside. She can sniff it when ever she needs to. These items can be purchased online: I like Nature's Gift and Aromathyme.
