Use for calming baths for kids. The hype of the holidays can have a negative impact on kids.

Lavender Essential Oil and Peace and Calming Essential Oil are both excellent for this! You can create your own soothing bath salts with Epsom salt and 5-10 drops of each oil. Alternately, you can diffuse these oils in their bedroom at bedtime to help them chill out. 😉
Add a little flavor to treats. Young Living Peppermint essential oil is a great choice to add a drop to create those classic chocolate covered mint treats, cookies, or even teas as you make your collection of homemade holiday treats.
