Ugh… Temper tantrums. If you have a child, and especially if you have a toddler, the tantrums can be almost daily! Or hourly…. am I (unfortunately) right? You need a temper tantrums tam. As a mom, I discovered a safe and natural way to help our kids calm down. And of course, I wanted to share our essential oil success with you!
Oils That Help With Temper Tantrums
Help Calm Tantrums With An Essential Oil Blend
When my kids were small, we have the best luck with this blend of Balance and Serenity for calming tantrums. My daughter was especially emotional and the Balance and Serenity worked without fail.
- 30 drops Balance
- 30 drops Serenity
Mix together in a 10 ml roller bottle. Top with Fractionated coconut oil. When child is feeling out of control, gently roll the roller bottle along the back of the neck or spine.
Practical Ideas To Help Prevent Children’s Tantrums
In addition to essential oils, there are some practical ideas to help prevent children from having tantrums in the first place. Children don’t regulate their emotions as easily as adults. Some common tantrum triggers are if the child is tired, hungry, overwhelmed, or even facing a new or different situation.
It also helps if you can stay calm yourself. The calmer you are able to be, the more your child will feel your calmness and it gives them a sense of security. Try not to think of the tantrums as being your child’s fault. Understand that they are little, and need your help in dealing with a situation that they either don’t understand, or aren’t able to take care of themselves. A tantrum is a bit of a cry for help, and along with the practical ideas, you can use oils to help calm the tantrum.
I always ended up using the Tantrum tamer roller bottle on myself, too. That helped me stay calm.
You’re doing a great job, Momma!
