Kids bouncing off the walls when they get overtired?
Children are naturally active and meant to be engaged physically and mentally in stimulating activity.
We must realize, however, that children are prone to stress just as adults and not all children can just "go with the flow".
Too many expectations, places to go, and not enough down time can result in behaviors ranging from a teary meltdown to headaches and bellyaches.
A wonderful routine for any child to look forward to in the evening would be a warm bath, a cup of chamomile tea, a good book and a bonding massage.
Gentle, circular motions are all that's needed to give your child an effective massage, nothing fancy. Kid's can be very ticklish so it's doubtful your technique will remain on a serious note anyway! But muscles tension will be relieved and you'll no doubt be rewarded soon enough with a sleepy child.
Children's immature systems are very sensitive so you want to be sure the products you are using are free of toxins, chemical scents and petroleum by-products.
The chosen base oil used for our Settle'n Down Massage Oil is apricot seed oil.This non-greasy oil is often used for babies and children because of its gentle nature. Being it is not a nut oil you needn't worry about a possible nut allergy.
Chamomile, lavender and marjoram essential oils are combined in a relaxing blend used for its emotionally calming results and pleasant fragrance. The dilution ratio of essential oils to carrier oil is greater than would be for an adult massage oil.
Essential oils are absorbed rapidly through the soles of the feet in comparison to less permeable areas such as the back. Muscle relaxation is wonderful but if time is of the essence a foot massage can achieve quick results.
Start with 1/2 tsp. and be you own judge how much you need.
When you squeeze the rubber dropper top it will fill about half way. Doing this twice will give you about 1/2 tsp. Four times will give you 1 tsp.
If your child sucks on his/her fingers try to avoid using the oil on their hands.
Keep massage oil out of reach of children and out of direct sunlight or heat source.
Settle'n Down Children's Massage Oil comes in a 4 oz. amber glass dropper bottle. If you prefer a 4 oz. white plastic pump type bottle let me know.
