How do we find the right balance of strategies, medicines, experiences and therapies to help others live the best quality of life possible in the face of challenging disabilities?

Many children and adults have grown up with severe physical and mental issues that require intensive treatments. Medications are common, yet the side effects are significant. What is the efficacy of some of these medications? Are there safer alternatives? Essential oils have been used for over the centuries as treatments for many problems and in many parts of the world. Information about their benefits and how to use them is increasing now in this country as integrative and holistic approaches to health and well-being are becoming more accepted. Recently, I have been researching and using some of these time tested oils to better understand their healing properties in the human body. It makes sense to me to use more natural health enhancing remedies if they are able to do the job and reserve powerful medications for when they are needed. This is a new concept of care which is beginning to influence those who value health and quality of care. I want to introduce a handful of essential oils that are effective in calming mind and body and in my research on children with disabilities, are shown to work well. Click on the below links for more information about the oils I primarily use:

1. Lavender Fine This oil has been know to be the “perfect oil” because of it’s wonderful healing properties. It nurtures all the systems in the body, cleansing, antimicrobial (good for sinuses and respiratory airways) and soothes muscles, relieves headache and stimulates immune systems. Can be applied over the heart, back of neck and shoulders or on bites/burns on skin as needed. A drop of lavender on a child’s feet before bed or a drop on a pillow has been known to help with sleep.

2. Lavender Vera This oil is similar to Lavender Fine but is designed for emotional calming.

3. Calm – This blend of tangerine, grapefruit pink, ylang ylang, tannecetum annum, and Rose is often diffused to help children settle down and decreases agitation. This oil is best inhaled from a tissue or diffused. It can also be used directly on pulse points or on the feet. Using 1-2 drops is enough.

4. Still This blend of oils is especially good for depression, insomnia or nervous tension and soothes agitation. Using this as misting spray, adding 10-12 drops in 4 ounces of distilled water in a cobalt blue spray bottle and this can help calm the environment. It can also be used on pulse points (1-2 drops) or a drop over the heart or across the back of the neck.

5. Focus This oil blend is effective to increase mental alertness and concentration. It supports memory, helps stimulate the left brain logical thinking processes and prevents mental fatigue. This is not suggested for use in a diffuse but rather as a misting spray or inhalation. (2-3 drops on the palms of your hands, rub together, cup hands over mouth and nose and inhale deeply for increased mental acuity) It can be used topically on pulse points and back of neck as well.

6. Peppermint There are so many ways to use this oil. It helps with concentration, balancing (car sickness), and is good easing muscle and headache strain, sinus and chest congestion and boosts the digestive system. When used with a carrier oil, this is helpful to ease stomach, gall or kidney stones. (2-4 drops mixed in a teaspoon of carrier oil) To aid in digestion, put a drop in a glass of water, shake well and sip throughout the day.

7. Lemon This oil is one of most common and versatile oils. You can put a drop in water to help cleanse and purify your body and is the # 1 oil to kill bacteria. You can diffuse this throughout the day to create an uplifting and stimulating work environment, can be used topically for many skin conditions.

In a world of ever increasing science and technology every person deserves acceptance and understanding. Using essential oils is one such way to help build bridges of communication. Choosing which oils that may be best for an individual is in itself a connection. Sometimes the person chooses their own essential oil. This has a reciprocal effect on the care-giver as they also benefit from this process. Often the individual will communicate to you what they respond to best. The ones that I have listed are carefully chosen to be are safe and non-toxic. They focus on the treatment of emotional and behavioral problems. There are many essential oils that focus on the treatment of the physical body but this requires some interest in learning more about how to use them. The ones I mentioned are more general and you can use them frequently.

An important consideration in choosing essential oils is the quality of their origin. In order to get the positive results that are connected with each oil, this knowledge is crucial. Alexandria Brighton is the founder of the Greenorganics line of oils. She is an excellent educator and has been in the field for many years. This line is USDA certified organic or wildcrafted.

I hope I have provided enough information to give a nice overview of how essential oils can help in the treatments of children and adults with disabilities. I am imagining how it would have been to have been experiencing the use of aromatherapy as a candy striper at the Anne Carlson School in Jamestown during the 70’s. Maybe they would be blowing bubbles made from essential oil soap. Now that would be an idea….a few drops in the bubbles.
