Aromatherapy for Babies & Children

At the workshop we explore the exciting realm of aromatherapy for Children. We look at aromatherapy as a viable complementary "medication" for preventive health care for your child.

We will show how you could use soothing blends of essential plant oils to ward off many of these simple ailments, from colds and coughs, tummy aches and pains, sleeplessness, cuts and scrapes or ear aches. For instance Eucalyptus essential oil works well as a remedy for respiratory illnesses, while Lavender and Chamomile are effective for a range of skin problems including eczema. When essential oils such as these are dabbed on a child's pillow, inhaled or used in a gentle massage, the effect is both therapeutic and relaxing.
