Children can often challenge us in many ways. Keeping their health in check, their emotions in balance and basically just keeping an eye on them can be an all-consuming task that can test our sanity! Some years ago B.C (before children), my partner and I were invited to stay with some friends for a social get together. While our friends were playing happy families with their one year old, we were discussing how important it is that children not be programmed with fear. In other words when a child trips over and hurts themselves or gets bitten by an ant in the garden, how important it is to stay calm and be proactive in their care and not reactive.
So during the family barbeque with everyone engrossed in conversation the little baby girl suddenly fell from sitting at chair height smack onto the patio pavers landing on her forehead. It made a sickening sound as she screamed and we all gasped not saying a word. The mother bundled up the infant into her arms and I told her to stay calm and place her hand over the baby’s forehead while I raced upstairs and grabbed my Roman Chamomile from my overnight bag. I placed a drop directly onto the baby’s forehead gently massaging it in and held my hand over her forehead for a few minutes staying relaxed and calm. The baby made a remarkable recovery without any bruising or swelling proving that children really do bounce…just kidding.
So if you are a mother in particular, Chamomile is essential for those little emergencies for its soothing, calming, anti-inflammatory effect and is gentle enough for sensitive skin and other problems such as colic and nappy rash. On a subtle level chamomile helps us to accept the help of others.
