One of my children recently went through an “I’m scared of the dark” phase. She’s also scared of sounds she hears and bugs that could be in her room. My heart aches seeing her tense and on alert over dangerous that don’t exist. I kept thinking that it’s probably how the Lord feels when He sees us stressed or fearful, when He’s knows that all is well and we are safe.
One of my FAVORITE blends is doTERRA’s Terrashield. Terrashield is designed to be a bug repellant but it smells amazing and I’ve used it many times for calming or just as a “perfume”. So I told my daughter about this blend and how not only can it help to keep the bugs away from her room but also can make people FEEL protected and safe emotionally. She smelled it and fell in love and so I made her a spray bottle. The first night she sprayed the WHOLE 4oz bottle all over her bed. It was soaking wet. So we had a little talk about appropriate amounts of oils to use!
Now she’s doing much better, and is rarely afraid. She has learned to set up her diffuser every night with Terrashield. It was adorable–she wrote herself a note and drew pictures as directions until she got the hang of it. I smile every night that I walk by and see her fast asleep with her diffuser running.
