Whether making a big geographical move – like we have recently – your kids are moving between separated parents, or they’re staying at a relative or friends house and are nervous, there’s a simple way we can support them using the power of our aromatic memory to create an anchor to calm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simply by diffusing the same aroma at home in a calm, safe environment, and then using that same process in their new space, you can dramatically support their feelings of calm, ease, safety and familiarity.
Our sense of smell is estimated to be 10,000 times more acute than other senses. Once aromas are registered, scent travels faster to the brain than both sight or sound. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Aromas can trigger emotional and even physical responses and allow vivid memory recall of people and places. The sense of smell is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is why adding an aromatic anchor to a move is so powerful. Creating a calm and safe environment using aroma and then being able to move that with us is a powerful tool to support our children. Just as they may have a special teddy or blanky, the aromatic experience they anchor to can instantly soothe our little. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We choose Lavender Peace (Serenity) and Easy Air for this anchor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lavender Peace/Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, and support a restful sleep when used aromatically.
Easy Air maintains feelings of clear and calm breathing & promotes a restful nights sleep. As it opens the airways it is thought to relieve feelings of grief, loss or sadness also as in CTM it is thought these heavy emotions are stored in the ribcage. ⠀⠀
We use three drops of each oil, pop it in the diffuser and turn on in the bedroom around 20mins before bedtime.
Try this for yourself and see how beautiful a ritual it can be for all.
