If you’re a mom, you’ve been here before. It’s 20 minutes since you’ve put your child to bed and all of a sudden they wander out of their room with an itch. They can’t stop scratching and it’s driving them, and you, crazy. You’ve got your essential oils handy right? Well it’s time to break out your Lavender.
One drop of Lavender Essential Oil in 1 tsp of a carrier oil rubbed on the itchy skin will have your baby back to bed in no time.
In addition to the fact that Lavender essential oil soothes occasional skin irritations, it is also widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities. This means using it at bedtime may be just what you need to help your little one to fall asleep.
Of course Lavender isn’t just to be used on children at bedtime. There are many different ways to use this beneficial oil. Find out my favourite ways to use Lavender, Lemon & Peppermint oils here.
