Did you know that approximately 25% of kids ages 5 to 12 are quite prone to nightmares? But of course, you know that already as you recall those nights waking up to your kid's distraught and tear-streaked face!
While we can't prevent nightmares, we can help set the stage for a good night's sleep and hopefully, encourage sweet dreams. Give them a soothing, warm bath, turn off electronics, read 'em a pleasant story, make sure their favourite stuffed toy is on hand, ban scary movies, the works.
Know another fool-proof move? Diffuser, or dilute and apply this Sweet Dreams essential oil to your kid's upper chest area approximately half an hour before bedtime. Containing Orange Sweet, Juniper, Coriander, Blue Tansy, and Rose Absolute, it has a gentle floral and fruity aroma that can help calm the mind and promote rest and relaxation. Fair warning though, it has a rather dark blue colour so be careful when applying topically if you don't want the tots looking like the Smurfs!
This blend is not just for kids! If you are plagued by nightmares every now and then, this "dreamcatcher" in a bottle might help keep the night terrors at bay!

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.
