Glycerite of the Month: Children's Wind Down

Amanda Furbee

Winding down from a day full of play.

A day of play and excitement can create an endless supply of energy for kids. Our Children’s Wind Down Glycerite is formulated with kid-friendly herbs to help bring calm to that excess supply of fiery energy. Catnip, although activating for cats, is grounding and calming to humans. Lemon balm and Passionflower create a sense of stillness from within; alongside Chamomile and Lavender for added aromatherapy benefits. With our Children’s Wind Down Glycerite, help your kiddos come back to a soothing state of relaxation. Directions: When the adult dose is 2 droppersful (60 drops), the following is recommended for children: Age -- Dosage Younger than 3 months -- 2 drops 3 to 6 months -- 3 drops 6 to 9 months -- 4 drops 9 to 12 months -- 5 drops 12 to 18 months -- 7 drops 18 to 24 months -- 8 drops 2 to 3 years -- 10 drops 3 to 4 years -- 12 drops 4 to 6 years -- 15 drops 6 to 9 years -- 24 drops 9 to 12 years -- 30 drops Other ways to determine dosage: Young's Rule - Add 12 to the child's age. Divide the child's age by this total. Example: dosage for a 4 year old: 4 divided by 16 (4+12) = .25, or 1/4 of the adult dosage. Cowling's Rule - Divide the number of the child's next birthday by 24. Example: dosage for a child who is 3, turning 4 would be: 4 divided by 24 = .16, or 1/6 of the adult dosage.
