Aromatherapy & Big Emotions

Whether it be toddler life, teen life, or child melt downs the therapeutic properties of specific essential oils can help our children to develop coping strategies against those big emotions. For example, the feeling of happiness, excitement, anger, frustration, anxiety, or loss.

Below is a survival kit for all parents for their children and or for the parents as well. Essential oils need to be placed in a base oil or lotion before use.  And only in a very small proportion before using with children and teenagers.  Please speak to a trained aromatherapist before using essential oils!

Peppermint – To help refocus their minds to bring them back to the moment when they may feel lost or confused about a situation.  For example, an adult saying “no” to a question and they do not understand why its that answer. If they are having trouble focussing on homework tasks you could diffuse a couple of drops of this oil, or they can have some on a tissue to smell when needed.

Chamomile – This essential oil is often used as a calmative for anxious nerves, anxiety, to soothe stomach upset and to reduce skin irritation!

With children you might like to put into a blend with lavender to help soothe them when they are anxious or if they can’t sleep for any reason.  Calmative on the mind and the body.

Lavender – helps to calm down and can have a soothing effect on their mind, body, and soul. A useful oil to have on a piece of cotton wool pad inside your child’s pillowcase at night.  Or they could carry some on a handkerchief to school to help relax them before a big test or exam.

Vetiver – is known as the oil of tranquility and, when combined with lavender, promotes enduring emotional balance. This could be a helpful oil to use in small amounts with children after a melt-down to help rebalance them again.

Over the past few days I have been looking back over the past year. Empathy Holistics has certainly evolved from having human interaction into a virtual business.

I have been lucky that as a trained aroma therapist I have still been able to create my handmade creams, oils and shampoo’s. And have shipped them all over the UK in a safe manner. Heavenly Handmade Products

I have also designed new gift kits to help treat and look after people in their own home or place of work. With more gift kit ideas coming in 2021.

New collaborations to come in 2021 with other small businesses which will compliment Empathy Holistics and help me to grow ever stronger and to diversify further Buddies Links🌈

Lots of new services to come not to mention a private virtual retreat group on Facebook. Which you can access for a small amount each month. You will be able to access relaxation sessions, mindful craft ideas and much more to you help you and your family or business to relax better in 2021!

A new year and a new start for all….

Thank you for all your support and encouragement in 2020 I couldn’t of done it without all my amazing customers
