In a perfect world, our kids would win every game. But the truth is, sometimes tough losses can teach far more than the most triumphant wins. As parents, we’re aware that teamwork, sportsmanship, and character are more important than the score, but losing still stings, especially when it means missing out on the playoffs or winning the title they’ve worked hard for all season - so does riding the bench instead of getting put into the game or not making the cut for the elite travel team.
While you’re waiting for time to heal your child’s emotional wounds (or maybe even yours), Essential Oils can help. There are several Oils that uplift mood, promote a positive environment, and help ward off feelings of sadness.
Here are a couple of power houses you might want to have in your purse or backpack, ready to bust out when things don’t go your team’s way.
The UPLIFTING BLEND promotes a positive, uplifting environment. If your carpool home is suffering from a major case of the blues, pop a few drops in your car diffuser. This blend of Citrus and Spice Oils promotes feelings of optimism, cheerfulness, happiness, and hope.
Heavy hearts and low emotions are no match for the sunny, cheerful, invigorating aroma of Wild Orange, Clove, Star Anise, Lemon Myrtle, Zdravetz, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Ginger, and Cinnamon Bark Essential Oils.
And for those really heartbreaking losses, try the COMFORTING BLEND. This mixture of Frankincense, Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Labdanum, Amyris, Sandalwood, Rose, and Osmanthus Essential Oils smells sweet, musky, and floral. It will be sure to help ground and comfort those who are feeling overwhelming sadness and heavy emotions.
It can be hard to leave disappointments on the court. The soothing, calming, relaxing properties of these Floral and Tree Oils will help defuse tension between teammates and calm tense minds, hearts, and bodies. The COMFORTING BLEND can also help evoke feelings of hope and get your favorite player or team in the right mindset for the next game or come back.
Both of these oils come in 5 mL bottles perfect for adding drops to your diffuser as well as 10 mL roller bottles diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil and ready to swipe on topically. Perfect for uplifting the emotions of those feeling down of all ages.
