The emotional state of children plays a significant role in their development. That state is highly dependent on the stability of a child’s environment and on whether they feel secure. Children experience stress when their parents quarrel, when they feel the lack of love and attention. Stress may also be caused by compelling changes.

 

Constant stress may cause hormonal changes and the body secretes more stress hormones, e.g. adrenaline, noradrenaline, cortisol and other biologically active substances. Prolonged stress has negative effects on all organs and it affects immunity. A weakened immune system, a decreased resistance to infections are a couple of possible consequences of stress. Stress may also cause emotional disorders such as insomnia, involuntary urination at night, inability to concentrate.

YOU & OIL KI offers a solution for the little ones – a preventive therapy that can help avoid bigger problems likely to happen in the future.

KI ANXIETY. If the child is just starting kindergarten and feels reluctant to stay there, if he feels anxiety from just the thought of having to go there, it’s recommended to gently massage 3-4 drops of KI ANXIETY to the child’s feet and/or the solar plexus in the morning. Essential oils of marjoram and camphor trees have a soothing effect, essential wild myrrh oil boosts mood and energy. Ylang-ylang essential oil relaxes, reduces stress, anxiety, anger or fear.

KI DISTURBED SLEEP. Due to the anxiety and stress a child experiences, the quality of sleep suffers as well. Sleep for children is an especially important stage for development as the formation of memories and other crucial processes take place. Therefore, the quality of a child’s sleep equals a stable nervous system and development. A well-rested child will be in a better mood; he will have a much stronger immune system. KI DISTURBED SLEEP is an organic essential oil mixture that is recommended when suffering from insomnia, having any type of difficulty falling asleep due to pressure, anxiety or irritability. Biologically active substances of essential oil have the power of soothing, relaxing. They increase the amount of melatonin in the brain, which is a direct neurotransmitter responsible for the initial stages of sleep and the quality of it. It is recommended to gently massage 3-4 drops of the mixture to the feet and/or at the solar plexus before the child goes to sleep. It’s suitable for children under three.

KI CONCENTRATION. Due to stress and anxiety children lose their vigilance and have difficulty concentrating. To overcome the lack of concentration we recommend a mixture of organic essential oils called KI CONCENTRATION. It’s suitable when one is troubled by absent-mindedness, when it is difficult to concentrate and maintain focus. Biologically active substances of the essential oils in the mixture have a soothing and relaxing effect, they also activate the brain and help concentrate. Gently massage 2-3 drops of the mixture at the solar plexus and the inner sides of the wrists. It’s suitable for children over six years.
