Don't let meltdowns get you down! Then next time your little one loses control, regain the calm with this Tantrum Tamer with Essential Oils.
Ah, the joys of the preschool days.
I've always said that the three's were harder than the two's, but Skye was such a delightful two-year-old that I allowed myself to think we were in the clear.
Her fits have been epic lately. Suddenly, I'm THAT MOM that everyone is staring at in the store.
I love my little gremlin all the time, but there is no doubt that my strong-willed daughter challenges me and is going to continue to challenge me in the coming years.
Lucky for me, I've got my oils.
When Skye's meltdowns start getting me down, I pull out two of my favorite oils: Calming the Child & Lavender. On her feet and in the diffuser they go!
I'm always amazed at how effective they are at bringing my sweet baby back!
Tantrum Tamer with Essential Oils
- 2 drops Calming the Child
- 2 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- Dilute with 1 tablespoon carrier oil. Apply to the feet. It is also helpful to diffuse the undiluted oils in the air.
The Quality of The Essential Oils You Use Matters!
After looking closely at the quality, purity, and ethics of so many companies, I've fallen in love with both the company and their oils. They have a large line of organic oils and are serious about safety. Every single batch is tested to ensure purity!

How often should you apply the mixture of balance, lavendar & carrier oil to the bottom of your child's feet
It really depends on their age and what is going on, but every 3-4 hours as needed. I wouldn’t use it 7 days a week - make sure you take a break now and then.
Ive never tried EO's and I am desperate to find something that will help my five year old son and his temper tanrums at preschool. Would this work if it were put on like a bracelet or necklace?
It is definitely worth a try! Every child is different, but oils are a game changer with my daughter. I keep a roller bottle on me at all times and have a lot of diffuser necklaces. She is 4 1/2 and very prone to tantrums because she doesn't eat well. (That and she is a late life baby with older brothers and totally used to getting her way. LOL)
When she is about to lose control I get her to take a deep breath and breathe in. I think a combination of the breathing and the oils really helps her calm down.
