For Back to School season, I wanted to share the photos of Sally Mann. The emotional depth and soulfulness she’s captured in these poignant moments in childhood just blows me away. Her deep respect for children as beings in their own right is so clear and was a big inspiration to me while I was creating my children’s formulas.
Hello My Friends,
Can you believe we are now in the third seasonal change since all of this new life has started. Now as things are opening up in areas, there are new fears, uncertainty and confusion as to how to navigate the next phase. For those of you with kids, there must be an added stress of how to best protect them without making them feel your worry.
Flower remedies are so great for kids because they will never cause harm. They are safe, gentle and natural, made from the wildflowers of the English countryside. They work by helping kids to adapt to stress by strengthening them internally, rather than imposing something that forces a change on them from the outside. My young clients also love to have something that is just for them and always ask for their special bottle of sweet flower drops.
Back to school is very different for many of us this fall. Whether your kids are returning to a big school with other kids, staying at home for zoom class or doing home school with a few other families, flower remedies will be a great support to help them adjust to the change.
Here are my favorites for Back to School, however that looks for your family.
These times have made us all a bit fragile. My number one formula for going through rapid changes unscathed is First Aid Kit. This is the universal remedy for neutralizing shock, trauma and grief. It is a great comfort in times of distress and helps your little one to stay grounded.
This will help lighten up any heaviness related to the ongoing inability to socialize freely, hug people or even from picking up on stress we may be feeling. If you only get one, get this one. The whole family can use the First Aid For Kids. It’s the same formula as the regular, just alcohol free.
This is the best formula if your kids have expressed anxiety or fear about anything, have nightmares, or separation anxiety. Even with zoom school, there might be some self consciousness or stage fright and shyness. This formula will give them a boost of courage and keep them calm.
Magic Shield will help them feel excited about things they may have been avoiding out of fear. It’s also good for kids who may just be extra sensitive or overwhelmed. It won’t take that lovely quality away, but will just give them a little buffer.
