AWP 050: Nighttime Fears in Children and How Aromatherapy Can Help

AWP 050: Nighttime Fears in Children and How Aromatherapy Can Help

 ❤️  If you enjoy this podcast, feel free to support the production and get even more aromatic wisdom here: ❤️


It’s normal for children to feel some fear at night, whether they are alone in their room or sharing with a sibling. Nighttime can make anyone feel vulnerable, especially when you’re 7 years old and have an active imagination. The child's fear may arise from being in the dark feeling anxiety about being away from mom and dad for a few hours or simply from feeling alone after being with people all day.

In this episode, I share both aromatherapy and non-aromatherapy tools and recommendations that can help reduce your child’s fear at night so that they - and their caregivers – can get a good night’s rest.

I love sharing my 31+ years of aromatic experience and knowledge with you through my podcast. You'll find personal stories, tutorials humor, and inspiration in a warm and friendly manner.  It's my hope that you will feel inspired to explore essential oils deeper after listening and explore what is possible for health and well-being when you include aromatherapy into your life.
