It might seem like kids don’t have a care in the world but that doesn’t mean they don’t get stressed out from time to time. Whether it’s problems with friends, too much sugar, homework, or it’s just one of those days… kids get anxious and stressed too. The next time you noticed your kids filled with tension try this blend out and see if it helps to relax them.
This blend also does really well in DIY soaps.
P.S. Parent’s you might just try this one out on yourself as well if you know what I mean 😉
