The effect and odors of essential oils are good for children and adults alike. They are especially beneficial during the winter when there are frequent respiratory problems.
Whether it is a viral or bacterial infection, many of the problems caused by low temperatures and prolonged periods of stay indoors, such as a stuffy nose, can be alleviated by essential oils.
Mild oils for children
It is generally known to parents today that early childhood is a very important developmental period, and that everything that happens during that period certainly has an impact on the later life of the child.
A wide selection of essential oils (make sure you pay attention to quality when making a purchase) allows for good disinfection of the baby’s room – the recommendation is to do it occasionally. A simple spray is sufficient, with doses of 3-5 drops of lemon, grapefruit, tea tree, chamomile, lavender, tangerine or orange essential oil. Of course, you do not have to use all of these oils, but the ones whose scent is most appealing to you and your children, while touch develops mutual trust and love. As the touch of mom’s and dad’s hands feels and recognizes, an infant is susceptible to smells from an early age, so essential oils have a much stronger effect on children than adults. However, aromatherapy oils can only be used in small doses in children and with a specific purpose. In accordance with children’s nature, the scents must be gentle and refreshing – to contribute to a sense of warmth and security.
