How Peace and Calming kept me out of jail
Carsen T. writes: On one of my return flights from a seminar overseas, a couple sitting directly in front of me was desperately trying to calm their screaming little 3 to 4 year old daughter. The screaming went on and on and on, stressing other travellers as well. The mother was nursing a baby, and the father could not care less!!! He was wearing earphones listening to something. After about 15 minutes or so I tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.
Asking permission, I held a tissue in front of the screaming child with a few drops of Peace and Calming on it, and voila – the miracle happened!
After about 4 to 5 minutes, the screaming stopped, the child had fallen asleep (or had passed out), and I had given up the intent to wring the fathers neck, thus saving myself from landing in jail for assault.
How Lavender saved my sanity
Susan writes: I love having my oils on me as you never know when they may come in handy. Recently I was on a flight to Perth and was sitting beside a couple and their (almost) 2 year old boy. I happened to get my small oils case out and the little boy was fascinated by these coloured bottles and took great delight in smelling them all, and indicating which was his favourite.
Further into the flight he became grizzly as it was well past his naptime. The mother indicated that he was only used to sleeping in his own bed, not anywhere else such as a plane! As the minutes wore on, the crying started and he was quite unsettled. The crying then turned into screaming at the top of his lungs.
I asked the flight attendant for a serviette and put a few drops of Lavender on it and handed the serviette to the mother. She held it close to his nose and shortly after he dropped off to sleep.
When I asked her later how she had found the Lavender, she thanked me profusely and said that she could feel his body just completely relax as soon as he had taken a few smells of the serviette.
Hysterical children be-gone!
Kate S. writes: My friend’s 4 year old boy dropped a full stainless steel drink bottle on his big toe and was screaming hysterically.
We placed 2 drops of Peace & Calming on his shirt, and wafted our hands in front of his nose while getting cuddles from mum, and his screaming immediately subsided to a gentle sob. Amazing!!!
Harmony oil – stopped crying in seconds
Nadia writes: I had a lady attending one of my yoga classes very soon after giving birth. She was afraid that her child would cry and disturb the lesson….and of course that was exactly what happened. There was no way to stop this child. So between exercises, I ran into my home to get some Harmony oil.
I took the lid off the bottle, and simply held the lid near the boy’s nose so that he could breathe it in. He stopped crying in seconds….everyone was so surprised.
Then I gave the mother a drop to inhale, so that she could be centered as well.
Roman Chamomile to the rescue
Amanda writes: I had one terrible night where Gracie (my 6 week old daughter) wouldn’t settle to sleep. She was awake from 8pm to 10.30pm feeding, drifting off, then crying as soon as I put her down to sleep.
After two hours of this, I grabbed my Roman Chamomile oil, and held the open bottle near her face. She instantly stopped crying and I could see her turn towards the smell of the oil.
That particular night I rubbed one drop (diluted in about a teaspoon of carrier oil) onto her tummy and she fell asleep until 5am. Other times I just diffuse or hold the bottle near her and she always stops crying. Magic stuff!!!
The Simplest solution to get rid of monsters
Artemis writes: I had a most amazing experience with Dream Catcher oil blend about 5 or 6 years ago. At that time I met a lovely lady, a friend of my brothers. She had been waiting to drop the kids off to school when her car was hit from behind by another car. Although it was a relatively minor accident, her 4 year old daughter was in the backseat, and it gave her a huge fright.
Over the following week, her daughter began having nightmares, and became very clingy, not wanting to leave her mum’s side.
I was visiting my brother when his friend was there, and I was asked if here were any oils that could help. So I pulled out a selection of oils that I thought might assist – oils like Joy, Inner Child, Dream Catcher, Release, Sacred Mountain and Awaken. I turned all of the oils upside down, and grasped them in my fist. I offered this fist-full of bottles to the daughter, and invited her to choose one.
Well, she picked “Dream Catcher”. So that night, her mum put a drop of Dream Catcher under each of her feet. The result was profound! Her daughter didn’t have a nightmare that night, and the next day she was back to her normal Self (no clinginess). How amazing is that!
That makes so much sense to me, based on the intention of the oil. Gary Young created this oil blend to be like a Native American dream catcher, which keeps the bad dreams at bay, and allows only the positive and good dreams through.
Things that go bump in the night
Barb H. writes: My grandson used to have really bad nightmares when he was 2 to 3 years old. He woke up crying and sometimes screaming in the middle of the night, and was very hard to settle again. He said he didn’t want to go back to sleep because he was scared. He would also wake up crying in the morning and the grey circles under his eyes were so sad to see.
We decided to apply Dream Catcher each night to his feet, 1 drop on each foot after diffusing the room with Dream Catcher in the afternoon before he went to sleep.
He woke up the next morning very excited that he had slept all night in his own bed, and was beaming as he came down the hallway with a huge smile on his face. We were very grateful. He continues to use it every night and is sleeping well.
