A blend for August:
When it comes to little ones with bunged up noses, a good night’s sleep can be hard to come by. So here is a blend to put in the diffuser to help the night go a little easier…
3 Drops Eucalyptus Peppermint (Eucalyptus Dives)
3 Drops Lavender
2 Drops Frankincense
The clearing, decongestant properties of Eucalyptus Peppermint teamed up with the calming, soothing properties of Lavender and Frankincense’s mucus reducing ability make them a wonderful trio.
Eucalyptus Peppermint is preferable to regular Eucalyptus (globulus) for a children’s blend because it is more gentle and has no known contraindications. Eucalyptus not only can be stimulating and therefore not sleep inducing, but it is also rich in cineole which, according to Tisserand’s Essential Oil Safety, can cause central nervous system and breathing problems in young children. So this our little people friendly, gentle bedtime blend to sooth away those sniffles.
