like this is what this is the oil that I chose just to remind them and they will get the oils that you chose out of those three sent to you mhm cannot see okay let’s see fact or fiction who’s ready to learn a little bit about peppermint me because I love peppermint factor fear I’m going to read this you tell me in the comment section whether you think this is fact or fiction peppermint is great for congestion and young children fact or fiction I love how they have the answer here they have the answer on the screen they are not confident that I do not know answer they’re not letting me visit fact or fiction if you want to go above and beyond and tell us why in your comment feel free yeah that would be great feel free fact or fiction peppermint is good for congestion in young children right is it is it short no is it not you have like five more seconds one are you seeing some answers Katrina three four five okay the correct answer is fiction doctor dog doctor the doctor thought so couldn’t gum why wouldn’t it be good for man I didn’t see anybody put fact I think nobody most people got that yeah so the reason it is fiction is because peppermint is not considered a kid safe oil so although peppermint is great for congestion it is not great for congestion in young children peppermint has been known to cause breathing problems in some young children some things to note is you know if you did not know that and you’ve been using peppermint around your young children and there’s no side effects and they’re completely fine it’s something that you can continue to use but because we are educating the mass and because you don’t know if your child will have a breathing problem unless you try or not we just recommend it not be used around young children for that reason and in fact a few years ago I had someone local who was you know just starting out using essential oils and knew I worked for plant therapy came up to me and started being you know telling me about their their younger son who just can’t use peppermint and I was like oh you know if she’s telling me that he has a really hard time breathing and and I was like well here’s something to note about peppermint and I explained you know what was going on why we don’t recommend peppermint for young children and she says that makes so much sense because he has allergies and his allergies are way worse in the winter because the cold makes it so it’s harder for him to breathe and it was the same thing that peppermint was doing to his body that the cold weather was and so it’s you know that was an experience that she learned and she no longer was using peppermint um but you know something to know it is great for congestion just not for young children it might not be for young children so we don’t recommend it that makes me wonder how well peppermint would work if so I think one of my kids had a whooping cough or something that just closed them up really bad and walking outside and did that cool air really helped him out yeah maybe yeah so I think um I think you have to be especially careful with that because your body does react a little bit different with like the cold effect that peppermint gives versus like outside in the air and although it made his you know asthma worse um it’s not something that I would recommend you try mm-hmm yeah yeah um GP says no one said fact because PT users are well educated thank you because of of us Thank You GP I also wanted to let GP know that this weekend I this last weekend I went and played or did karaoke with some friends from the Philippines I can’t remember where gp’s from she might not be from the Philippines but she’s gonna say it anyways yes sunny bunny is asking at what kids age is peppermint allowed so plant therapies you know we just keep it simple and anything that’s not marked kids say if we say you can start using at the age of 10 but I do believe that there are some other recommendations you know by experts in the industry that say it possibly can be used at certain dilutions at a younger age but plant therapy likes to keep it simple in our education and so we say 10 and older did you see the ones are the questions about spearmint yes I was just gonna say that so we do have questions saying can use spearmint for respiratory issues too Ashley says what is a good sub that is kids safe so actually that’s the next screen I have you guys so it says what should you use instead um we do there are a lot of options that some of the ones that um you know we might recommend would be balm mint bush Rosalina that’s actually like what is really highly recommended in place of a eucalyptus was which also helped with respiratory concern so Rosaleen is fantastic it contains one a finial but it’s in a small enough percentage that it is safe to you um Cyprus we did an Amazon light this morning on Cyprus and talked about how it’s fantastic for a respiratory support fer natal is also most of the pine needle II oils are really good for respiratory support and most of them are kid-safe as well katrina kaif or thyme says my oldest was so excited to turn 10 because he could finally use my not kid safe oils oh my goodness that is adorable I think like we need to send them like a celebration pack just not all non kids they’ve oils or something go crazy you enjoy those non kid-safe oils that’s pretty adorable it was some Boronia I think yeah that’s pretty adorable okay um so there are some options that you can use instead of peppermint for those that to something like rose oil not at all nope Rosalina is going to be more similar to eucalyptus you’re gonna get that one a tinny although it’s not as strong because I believe Rosalina so eucalyptus is like 98% one night Cindy all right it’s like or 90% it’s a high amount I believe it’s around like 30 or 40% in Rosalina so you’re still gonna get that that’s any all aroma that eucalyptus tea aroma it’s just not going to be as strong but it’s definitely Rosalina is definitely closer to like a eucalyptus compared to a it’s not like floral like a rose how does the peppermint do with headaches would you recommend peppermint for headaches I very much would it is fantastic it can be do note though that some headaches are triggered by sense and so some people have to find a scent that doesn’t trigger their headaches because sometimes peppermint will can make headaches worse on so just be aware of that if you’re using something that can be triggered by sense like a headache then we I would recommend the first time you try and oil do it like in an inhaler or something and don’t apply it topically where it’s harder to get away from right like where you would have to wash up or something do it in a way that if it does start to trigger your headache or does start to make it worse that you can get rid of it and then try it different oil I mean one last question what is IA n spell Ian yes there you go you did a shout out to Ian shout out Christina’s son Ian is watching hi do you like my Cruella de Vil outfit Ian really I shouldn’t have asked you guys if I knew there was a kid watching out I’ve asked them the whole time

about done with this life we just have our last giveaway but before we do that I just want to give everyone a quick minute to ask any question no besides Katrina just kidding yes Katrina so anybody is asking if you have a kids safe loyal recommendation for a three-year-old with autism so I mean it would depend on specifically what you’re looking for like what concerns you want to address or you know what your needs are but I definitely think that we could find something we have a full line of so we have over 20 kids safe blends plus you know way more kids safe singles than that so I’m sure we could find something that that could help and and it was a three year old daughters that would have said are just three year old this three year old yeah so I’m sure we could but but we would need to know more specifically like if there was a concern you wanted to address or you know what specifically you were using the oil for and we could come up with something so email CS at plant therapy comm and they will be more than happy to help you oh no hold on before Katrina goes let’s see Carol nice is our dog still loud in the PT store well I don’t know I may or may not manage the stores shall I bring him in I don’t know people do okay your turn say smell like a wet dog and daddys allowed on the store then the dogs are wonderfully was is asking is there anything kids safe or breastfeeding safe that smells like cloves she’s having some clove withdraw oh I don’t blame you Oh something spicy is one of our oils of the month are you thinking about pink berries the older one yeah maybe pink berries yeah that is that no kids I don’t know and that’s more like a black pepper so you could try black pepper because it does have that a little bit of that spicy aroma it’s obviously it’s not like a clove substitute but at least as a spice most oils that have a spicy aroma are hot oils which makes them not kid-safe black pepper has a little bit of a spicy aroma but it’s not hot oil and it is kids safe um so I would maybe just try that one what can we we probably it’s on those it’s on the blonde there already um there was a question ginger lily and I have no idea some fruit one eyes or one yeah I like the ginger lily not too fond of it actually man imagine one flower Co – yeah – one flower actually reminds me of a weed that used to grow around our house so that

What is Chamomile?
Chamomile is an herb that has been used for thousands of years for many ailments including gas, diarrhea, stomach upset, sleeplessness, and anxiety. It can also be used topically for certain skin lesions. The Chamomile plant has flowering tops and these are what are used for making tea and other herbal remedies that include Chamomile.
When Chamomile tops are stewed and then drained the liquid is a deep yellow color and can be lightly sweetened if preferred. It has a very unique taste to it and many women used to make sure they always had a few baby bottles tucked safely away in the refrigerator in case their baby got gas. It was used before the days of over the counter gas relief drops and although there is no scientific validity to it, it always seemed to make the baby stop wailing and fall fast asleep.
What Is Chamomile Tea Good For?
It was also given to women for menstrual cramps in the days before Midol and Pamprin. Chamomile also has some calming properties to it so it can be very beneficial to sip on during the day if you are feeling anxious or if the muscles in your body are tense from anxiety and stress it is said that Chamomile can help to relieve that.
Chamomile produces an oil that when isolated turns a very unique bluish color and this has very distinct anti-inflammatory properties to it so it has been known to work very well on skin infections, eczema, and inflamed skin. This would be Chamomile in its topical form rather than the flowers or the tea from the flowers. Again, remember that Chamomile was around for a long time before many over the counter and prescription medications were so readily available.
For years all many people had to rely on was herbal remedies that were likely passed down from generations and possibly continued to be passed down even after the newer medications did come to the forefront.
Chamomile Essential Oil
Often when small children had bug bites, diaper rashes, or eczema, the mother would fill a stocking with Chamomile and oatmeal and let it soak in the tub with her children. It was very effective in stopping the itch and improving the diaper rash.
Chamomile was also used in combination with other herbs for a lot of other purposes such as if one felt nauseous, a combination of Chamomile, shredded licorice root, fennel seeds, and peppermint would cure that pretty quickly. Because Chamomile is part of the Ragweed family you should not ingest it if you have an allergy to Ragweed.
Some people love to sip a hot cup of Chamomile tea with no ailments at all, just because they enjoy it. Pregnant and nursing mothers are advised to stay away from all herbs but Chamomile is the exception to this rule.
It is completely safe for anyone to drink at any time. It has even been known to help teething babies too. On a final note Chamomile has been known to be an excellent hair conditioner and to sooth scalps. When mixed with a bit of lemon and sunshine it has also been known to give subtle natural highlights to hair.
