Yep… that’s right, I am a hippy oily mama! Well actually, no, not a hippy at all, but I am sure many people think that I am because for the past 2 years, my family and I have increasingly turned to essential oils for a whole bunch of things, including managing minor ailments at home, green cleaning, helping with separation anxiety and other emotions, and, well, for pretty much everything!
Why essential oils?
When Addie was 2, she started nursery. It was bad timing. I had just had Bear, and she developed severe separation anxiety that just wouldn’t quit. Having worked in a nursery environment, I thought I knew only too well how to handle it… drop her at the door, having said our goodbyes in the car, and turn around and leave the staff to take her in. In theory it is supposed to work, and it worked with all the many children I have seen cheer up immediately and then proceed to start crying again just as their parent came to collect them!
