Children have so much energy that it's hard to fathom sometimes. You could spend all day at a theme park, and yet, they will still trade in bedtime for more play time As a parent, you are happy to see them so enthusiastic and happy, but there comes a time when you want everyone to start winding down for the night and relax. But how do you do this without causing an uproar every night? Essential oils may just be the answer.

While many people think essential oils can only be used for a pleasant-smelling home, this information is false. There are so many uses for essential oils and can help with pretty much anything you can think of. The essential oil molecules are so small that they actually pass through the blood-brain barrier, allowing them to heal from the inside out.

Oils are scientifically proven to stimulate your olfactory system which triggers a response in other parts of your body. That is why certain oils are known to have a calming and soothing effect when diffused or applied topically to the skin. These can be a life-saver for parents who can't seem to get their children out of the playroom at the end of the day.

It is important to note that not all essential oils are created equal! Many store-bought oils have additives and chemicals in them making them not safe for children. But by purchasing high-quality, pure oils you can use them in a way that will benefit you and your family. With just a few drops diffused in your child's room, you can turn chaos into a calm.

Some of the best oils for calming include Lavender, Vetiver, and Cedarwood.

Lavender: promotes sleep, relaxation, and anxiety relief

Vetiver: promotes a calm and relaxed environment

Cedarwood: boosts serotonin and promotes stress-relief

These oils are just a few of the ways to naturally calm your children and promote a more relaxed household. For more information on essential oils click here!
