Family Matters: Essential Oils
(KUTV) For parents, sleep may seem like a hobby. Kids will have a hard time sleeping for a number of reasons and when your kids don’t sleep, you don’t sleep. For one mom, her son’s night terrors were keeping her up late at night. So when Chanci heard about essential oils, she decided to give them a try. “When they are little they can’t take any over-the-counter medicine and these are safe for all ages. Almost all of them you just rub them topically. So they don’t ingest them or anything and it just helps with all kinds of different things.”

Essential oils have been used for centuries. The popular belief is the oils, which commonly come from plants, can be used to treat different ailments such as: sleep problems, stress, and even indigestion. You can either inhale the aroma from the oils, or rub the oils on your skin. There is much debate today, whether they do indeed work. Chanci says she has seen an improvement with Kyle’s sleep habits. “One of the big things is he has asthma and so he gets a lot of night coughing and we like to rub it on his chest before he goes to bed so he doesn’t so he sleeps better that way too.”

We checked a couple of blogs here locally and noticed some moms out there are also talking about essential oils. There is also a lot of information online for those interested in trying essential oils.
