Why essential oils are so effective at helping our kids with healthy emotional responses
Children’s emotions can totally impact how they feel physically – same with us adults of course, and probably nothing new to most of you. But discover why and how essential oils can be super helpful in controlling the length and severity of a child’s response to their emotions to in turn support their general wellness.
Emotions effect a child’s (as well as an adult’s) physiology and what happens inside their bodies. Because their emotions are automatic, the chemical responses to them cannot be controlled, but we CAN help control the length of the response and the cognitive reaction to them.
This is because essential oils interact with our olfactory cortex in the brain, and this triggers our sympathetic nervous system. Meaning that, when a child inhales a truly pure and therapeutic grade essential oil (which can be achieved in a number of safe, non-obtrusive ways depending on your and their preference) it stimulates their brain. This causes other chemical reactions to occur that can influence their emotional response. So as parents, we can use essential oils very effectively to help our children experience healthy emotional responses, which are in turn an important component of a healthy body.
We might choose to use essential oils to support a whole range of moods and emotions, such as calming, soothing, uplifting, energising, etc. For our kids, yes, but also for ourselves too. I don’t know about you, but personally I find this totally empowering!
My mission here is to educate on the huge benefits that truly therapeutic grade essential oils can provide to ourselves and our loved ones, both emotionally and physically.
