Roman Chamomile is THE must-have oil for babies and children.
Chamomile eases colic, soothes restlessness and temper tantrums and promotes a good nights sleep. Do remember that the number of drops when treating babies and children is less. If you are treating a baby under the age of 1 just 1 drop in the bath and 1 drop to 15mls(3 teaspoons) of carrier oil. For children aged 1-5 use 1- 2 drops per 10 mls (2 teaspoons ) of carrier oil and 2 drops in the bath. For children from 5-12 use 2-3 drops per 10 mls carrier oil and 3-4 drops in the bath.
Use Roman Chamomile for skin irritations and problems such as eczema. You can use the oil blended into an oil or blend with my pure organic skin cream. It can be used also together with High Altitude Lavender.
Use Roman Chamomile and lavender together to combat nappy rash in my creams and to reduce the pain of teething add 1 drop of Roman Chamomile into an egg cup of carrier oil. You can keep this blend in the fridge and simply massage the gums with your finger to bring relief.
If your baby is suffering with colic then Roman Chamomile is the ideal choice. Either make a massage blend or make up a compress by simply adding 1 drop of Roman Chamomile to a small bowl of water and soaking up the mixture with a flannel . This method has saved many parents’ sanity!!
For childhood constipation use a blend of Roman Chamomile and Mandarin.
