All parents wants the absolute best for their children. With how much information is out there though, knowing what’s the best isn’t necessarily easy. One certainty is how important to be able to feel confident helping your children when they’re sick. Being able to create your own natural and nontoxic remedies with essential oils is one way of achieving that.
Aromatherapy for the Healthy Child: More Than 300 Natural, Nontoxic, and Fragrant Essential Oil Blends by Valerie Ann Worwood is one book I recommend to every concerned parent.
No matter how old your children are, this book covers all ages, from newborns to teenagers. Valerie offers multiple different aromatherapy remedies for typical problems, from bug bites to colds to asthma. With helpful reference charts and safety data, everything is easily explained and defined.
Since children’s bodies are going through rapid growth, the essential oils you give them are absorbed quickly and start working just as fast. They help give your children’s bodies a little boost so their immune system can learn to combat illnesses.
I used this book constantly when my sons were young. Since they were born prematurely, I’m still always worried about their immune systems. One of my sons recently had an ear infection and using the knowledge this book has taught me, I was able to make an essential oil blend that broke his fever overnight.
Aromatherapy for the Healthy Child is a perfect gift for all parents. From new parents to ones with three children, this book will help with so many everyday issues. It has become an important staple in my household and I’m sure it will for you as well.
