Aromatherapy for Children
Introducing Rachael Barrett – our affiliated therapist
Hi, my name is Rachael and I am a Mum of two spirited daughters.
I discovered a love of aromatherapy after my youngest was born, she has never been an amazing sleeper and has suffered cold after cold.
I began researching aromatherapy and soon started using various oils which helped alleviate her cold symptoms and improved her sleep.
It was then I realised the amazing benefits aromatherapy products could offer, and then realised how expensive the pure and natural aromatherapy products that are available on the high street are.
This is where RB Aromatherapy was born, I decided to qualify as an aromatherapist so that I could make aromatherapy products affordable for all.
I’ve had a real interest in natural alternatives for many years, mainly for myself.
Having been diagnosed with psoriasis at a young age, and then psoriatic arthritis and joint hypermobility in later years. Conventional medication didn’t suit me so I started researching more natural and holistic therapies for myself.
We’re all familiar with the pleasure that comes from an enjoyable smell, whether it’s the fragrance of a flower or food, or a scent we associate with good memories. There are various theories as to how exactly aromatherapy works, but some believe that by activating specific smell receptors in the nose, aromatherapy causes the brain to send messages to areas of the nervous system that affect mood and other symptoms.
So, how can aromatherapy help your child? Aromatherapy can help calm a child who is anxious or under stress, reduce nausea, discomfort and pain, and promote healthy sleep.
I’ve tailored a set of blends, especially for children and they include:
A little bottle of Courage
A little bottle of Calm
A little bottle of Happiness
A little bottle of Emotional Balance
A little bottle of Sleep
All blends are handmade using oils (including the carrier oils) that have been certified Organic by the Soil Association. They are also cruelty-free and Vegan friendly. They are 100% pure and 100% natural.
Jojoba Oil is the carrier oil of choice at RB Aromatherapy simply because of its versatility. It is lightweight and fast absorbing. It is suitable for all skin types, including mature and oily types.
These blends have been carefully crafted to be as safe for people of all ages as possible, reducing the risk of contraindications. Having said this, it is advisable for all clients to seek a Medical Professional opinion before using any blends if they have any concerns about contraindications especially if they are on any prescribed medications or have medical conditions.
*Please note that whilst I do everything possible to reduce the risk of cross-contamination, I cannot guarantee that products are free from traces of nuts or other allergens.
