As a mother, I work so hard to protect my family and help my children be the best they can be. One of the most frustrating things I face is the feeling of helplessness to ease their pain or suffering or help make life easier for them. As a mom of 2 children with special needs, I used to struggle with this helpless feeling day in and day out sometimes being overwhelmed by the emotional pain of watching my children suffer and not being able to take their discomfort from them.
This past summer, my oldest was struggling with fears and anxious feelings about starting 6th grade. Of course, it came to a head at bedtime one night making it hard for him to settle down and let his fears go. I experimented with a diffuser blend I formulated based on information I found on essential oils that help support a person with fears and feelings of anxiety. The diffuser blend worked well allowing my son to settle, fall asleep, and have a great night's sleep waking
