I know that they say that every “good” Mother feels inadequate with herself and her mothering abilities from time to time. That feeling like you are screwing up your kids more and more is totally normal. I know it’s normal to feel alone in the giant world that is kids and household chores and husbands and family. I know that. But, feeling like a total failure is not something you should have to deal with. That calming So what do you do when you get that way? How do I calm my child?
As you know, I have been getting into essential oils as a healthy alternative to the toxins in most of our daily used products. I have made glass cleaner, laundry refresher, tick spray, and wallflower refills. Each one has been a wonderful addition to my arsenal of healthy choices. But I am still searching. It may be in vain, but I am searching for something that will help Bug. Help calm my child. She has attention problems and has a bit of an anger problem. I am reaching out to the experts, trying to find the right blend for helping her through these issues with out a Big Pharma Company moving into her body and changing who she is.
I have heard everything from she is just a kid to she needs a good butt spank.
I am not going to get into spanking here or my thoughts on that here and now. What I do know is that I am at my breaking point and things must change, now.

Get To Know Your Child Calming Oils
Lavander is known for its calming properties. So that makes sense that it would be in my magical concoction of oils to help calm my child. Peppermint is known to help focus the brain and center the mind. It secured the spot of number two on my list of ingredients. And Lemongrass. I do not like lemongrass on its own, it’s a little funky to me. But combined with the above and it adds a lovely citrus scent. Lemongrass is known to promote energy cleansing, leaving negative feelings in the dust.
To go with the above calm my child blend of essential oils, I needed something she could keep with her, that she wouldn’t even have to think about. A diffuser is a little much for my kid to bring to school and use, so we have to think smaller. For the time being, we used expanded clay pebbles and a tiny drill bit to make a hole. (If you are going to try this at home, don’t use the drill. Just the bit will do and a slow twist straight thru the center) Then I used some wooden beads I had lying around to create an elastic bracelet. It works for now, but I think I may need to broaden my horizons!
