How many times have you put your child down for sleep and retired to your room for some well-deserved rest - just to be disturbed five minutes later with an anxious, crying child? Probably millions...
It's unenjoyable, to say the least, but anxiety could actually be disturbing your child's much-needed rest of their own. Aromatherapy can be a great way to help calm your child's anxiety naturally!
In a study done on children visiting the hospital (for unrelated reasons), it was found that children who were subject to citrus aromatherapy showed fewer symptoms of anxiety when they had to leave their mothers.*

It's said that peeling an orange can significantly reduce anxiety - and while our little ones may not be able to peel an orange, essential oils are an amazing solution.
