Have you ever tried to keep a 2.5 year old male calm? For a week? I tell you, for me, it is not easy!
My sweet boy had a medical procedure that requires him to not straddle or climb or jump and there is only so much TV one can watch before you get bored.
In my research about keeping little ones calm I found that the In Tune blend was a great option but I did not have it on hand. I did however have the oils to make it.
The Focus blend may help with hyperactivity, ADD/ADHD, calmness, focus, and stress.
The blend contains: Amyris Bark, Patchouli Leaf, Frankincense Resin, Lime Peel, Ylang Ylang Flower, Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood, Roman Chamomile Flower essential oils
According to this article the oil ylang ylang has shown to decrease heart rate and improve calmness.
I did not have Amyris, but I was able to mix the other oils in a roller with FCO and applied it to the bottom of little guys feet and to his heart and spine. I rubbed it in with a gentle loving massage and started up the TV. We both have been reasonably calm after each application. We have to re apply every couple hours but it has helped us a lot.
One small note is I added 1 drop of vetiver as it is also known for calming and it is one of my favorites!!
Stay calm my friends and have a great evening!!
