We all know that children love to play and have fun. They are also good at exchanging germs. With summer coming to a close and school just around the corner, there will be greater opportunity for them to pick up germs. They get them on the playground, in the classroom, and from other children. So what can parents and grandparents do to strengthen their children? I suggest giving them the wonderful benefits of Young Living’s Raindrop Technique® kit to support their immune system as they start school.
If you have any concerns about using essential oils on children, try the oils on their feet first. Be sure to follow individual label instructions and dilute oils with V‑6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex when using topically. Follow-up the initial application to the feet with a light application to the back as indicated below. Keep an eye out for reddening of the skin and let the child know to tell you if he or she feels any burning or discomfort. If this happens, you can easily add V‑6™ Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex to cool down the skin.
To perform the Raindrop, have the child lay quietly on a bed or massage table on his or her back.
1. Start with Valor®. Put a drop in each hand. Cross your arms and apply Valor to the child’s feet. Hold the feet and wait for an energy change in the body.
2. Have the child roll on to his or her tummy to put the oils on the back. Rub your finger over the bottle to get a small amount of oil on your finger, then rub the oil up the back starting at the lower back. Watch for any redness or discomfort.
3. One at a time apply oregano, thyme, basil, cypress, wintergreen, marjoram, and peppermint to the back. Children can be more sensitive to the oils, so be sure to check after each oil to make sure there is no redness or discomfort and apply V‑6 oil if necessary.
The Raindrop Technique is a great way to prepare kids for school and winter. It’s also a great way to get them used to using Young Living’s essential oils at an early age.
Peace be with you,
