Two Effective and SAFE Essential Oils for Children’s Stomach Pain!
If you’re a parent or take care of children, you’re probably familiar with the words, “My belly hurts!”
When kids have stomach pain, it’s not always easy for us to know what’s going on—whether they’ve eaten something that doesn’t agree with them, or they feel nervous about something, or they’ve gotten a little stomach bug . . . or if they’re only talking about belly pain because they can’t easily articulate what’s really going on for them.
Whatever’s making them say, “My belly hurts!” we can use essential oils for children’s stomach pain and help them feel better.
In Aromahead Institute’s popular class, Aromatherapy for Natural Living, I’ve created an entire lesson about using essential oils safely and effectively for children—including how to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes.

The three essential oils for cuts and scrapes in this blend are good at calming pain and inflammation, supporting healing, and cleaning out germs. (In fact, they’re so good at getting rid of germs, I often use these oils in natural cleaning blends. Yet they’re gentle enough for injured skin.) I like this blend because it allows you to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes safely—even for kids. […]

We don’t want to surround our children with harsh chemicals that can stress their little immune systems. […]
