You can hear that dreaded cough coming from the kids' bedroom, and know that you're not going to be getting any sleep (again) tonight. As much as you love your kids, you need sleep to hold onto your sanity, but what can you use that's safe for kids and will help you all get some rest?
Try adding Marjoram Sweet to your winter arsenal for fighting respiratory issues and comforting your kids at the same time. While Marjoram has long been used as a flavour enhancer in cooking, it is also extremely useful as an essential oil. Not only does it help to relax arteries and small blood vessels to make breathing easier and help to loosen mucus, it is also a great relaxant for the mind. Add it to your diffuser at bedtime to help with breathing as well as with the symptoms of anxiety, stress and insomnia.
Use it in a massage blend to soothe sore and aching muscles, ease the symptoms of arthritis and relieve menstrual pain. Historically, Marjoram has also been used to help us overcome the symptoms of grief!

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.

I use this oil most days. I use it in the bath if I'm achy, it works so well to soothe aches and pains. It feels cleansing and is very relaxing, a great way to unwind and prepare for sleep. It has an almost intoxicating scent, great for anxiety and supporting respiratory system.
We use Marjoram as a calming essential oil in our household. We also blend it with frankincense/copaiba, said to aid the nervous system. This blend is often diffused prior to bedtime or naptime helping support a calm nervous system. Whilst I find some of the Plant Therapy products light on aroma, this may be best with young ones. I’m a fan of the Plant Therapy organic and kid friendly range.
