kid's blend: 'calm the f down' | essential oils

sometimes i just want to yell calm the f down! but most of the time i restrain myself.. okay more like 50% of the time... if you have calm, angelic, quiet children - congratulations. i, however, do not. not even a little bit. they're straight up insane which makes me insane - it's just a crazy-person-carosel going on at our house pretty much all. the. time. want to come over? haha

moments like this make me love essential oils more than i already do. these are the perfect moments to break out our favorite kid friendly roller bottle blend to calm down. i apply it to the back of their neck and mine too sometimes! 

we keep a rollerball bottle of this blend on hand. it's basically sanity in a bottle. we've found this recipe to be the best for our family, but remember all people are unique. you may find adding a few more drops of cedarwood and less lavender works for you or maybe y'all need a tad more vetiver and less lemon. it takes a little time to get the right mix, but it's always worth it - promise! 

if you're interested in learning more about essential oils just ask! we've been using young living eo's for over 2 years and haven't looked back - i did a bunch of research back then before choosing which oils we would use and always came back to young living. it really boils down to having 100% pure essential oils - don't be fooled by the cheap/fake stuff!

i'm not a doctor - just a mom trying to do the best for her family and for us, a big part of that is incorporating essential oils into our daily lives.
