We have been receiving more and more requests lately from parents for remedies addressing many common issues arising in their children and also a desperate plea from mums wanting something to give them a boost and some emotional TLC.

So, in response to this here it is - our new Parenting and Childcare range of Remedy Essences. These six new remedies are only available online and are all 30ml, similar to our other remedies. Though we have also given them a slightly more playful and childlike label. These new remedies are:
Bossy Boots
Dream Time
Mumma Mojo
Sibling Harmony
Toddler Tamer

Below is a brief description of their qualities as well as the Essences used in each formulation.

Bossy Boots Remedy Essence

This is a fantastic remedy for helping children to be less bossy. I was able to fine-tune this remedy over a number of years when my daughter Grace was quite young. I can vouch for its effectiveness! I have chosen Essences for this remedy to; help a child to be open to new experiences and new ways of doing things; address any obsession; assist the perfectionist who is totally unhappy unless things are the way they feel that they should be, and everyone has to do it this way. Gymea Lily is probably the key Essence in this blend as it is for a child who has a very big, dominating personality, who always likes to be in charge and telling others what to do. Essences have been included for stubbornness and to help a child to be less focussed on themselves and more open to the needs of those around them. Finally, we have the Rough Bluebell, in case there is any hint of manipulation or maliciousness in their bossiness.

Dream Time Remedy Essence

Getting children ready to slow down and go to bed can be a very common challenge for parents. This remedy helps to achieve this, working at many different levels. Black-eyed Susan is probably the key Essence in this blend as it helps a child, especially those who are always ‘on the go’, to wind down and become peaceful, calm and relaxed. This is the Essence for a child who is always interested and curious about everything and doesn’t want to go to bed in case they miss something. I’ve also added Angelsword and Fringed Violet to help protect these sensitive beings from picking up any negativity from their environments. All the millennial children, with all the twos in their birth dates, are far more sensitive than any previous generation. Bottlebrush brings about serenity, by allowing them to let go and surrender to the “land of nod.”

Fuss Pot Remedy Essence

A wonderful Essence Remedy to help transform a child who is nit-picking, inflexible, controlling and pedantic into being; open to change and different ways of doing things; flexible and generally more relaxed about how things are and open to other people’s point of view and ideas. This Essence helps limit the number of knee-jerk reactions that occur if things aren’t perfect for them. It’s also for a child who makes up their mind that they don't like something before they have even experienced it. Isopogon has been added for that stubborn controlling personality where it’s either, “my way or the highway”. Enhanced feelings of inner peace are a common outcome of this remedy.

Mumma Mojo Remedy Essence

This remedy was created to help make mothering more easy and joyful! A great Essence to give mum a little bit more oomph, resilience, calm and renewal. It strengthens the connection between a mother and her child or children; enhances her intuition and eases any burden of responsibility and overwhelm. Quite importantly it also helps a mother to pay attention to and look after her own needs, not just her family’s.

Sibling Harmony Remedy Essence

This remedy is not just creating brotherly love, but both brotherly and sisterly love! Not only will it enhance qualities of forgiveness, compassion and being aware of the needs of others, it will also help to release insecurity, resentment, spitefulness and most importantly jealousy. I would recommend using this Essence both before and after the birth of a new sibling, especially if it’s for a first-born child.

Toddler Tamer Remedy Essence

A lovely remedy to soothe and calm an upset child, especially if they are in meltdown or ‘losing it’. It’s not a bad idea for the parent to also take a dose after helping their child through an episode like this. You can also think of this remedy if you notice any of the early warning signs of a tantrum brewing and about to unfold. There are Essences in this remedy to not only bring about calm and balance, but to also address rebelliousness, frustration, stubbornness and any accompanying level of manipulation. Fortunately, this remedy can work very quickly!

When I first launched the Australian Bush Flower Essences, it was my goal for every household to have them so that all family members could enjoy a better quality of life. Most importantly, I wanted children to be brought up with the Bush Essences so that they would keep their hearts open and have the courage, strength and enthusiasm to deal with their challenges and to follow and pursue their goals and dreams. This new range is a further important step to fulfil that vision.

The Bush Essences work extremely quickly on children, as children don’t have as many emotional blocks and barriers as adults do. What’s more, the Essences are very deep acting but yet gentle, making them a perfect remedy for children and babies.

I hope you will be able to use this range to improve the quality and happiness of the children in your life.
