8 Ways For Your Children to Use Emu Balm

You might have bought our Emu Balm and be thinking that it can only be used for adults but – it can be used for children too! It is a great alternative to giving them various painkillers to treat their aches and pains.

1) Headaches
Containing Lavender and clary sage which soothes headaches and migraines, massage a small amount onto the temples and forehead.

2) Toothache
Many of us may be old enough to remember applying clove oil onto a painful tooth, it didn’t taste too good but the anti-inflammatory, pain relieving properties in Clove oil still work. The Emu Balm cannot be placed inside the mouth or ingested however massaging a small amount on the outside of the jaw is a very good way to relieve tooth pain. (Do NOT eat or put into the mouth!).

3) Coughs
The balm can be massaged into the chest and back, it’s also very effective if you massage some into your child’s feet, especially between the toes and front of the sole, behind the toes. These correspond to reflexology points which cover the throat, sinuses and lungs. This can also aid towards a good night sleep.

4) Stomach Pains
(Do NOT eat or put into the mouth!) With many natural Anti-inflammatories and pain relieving properties, our emu balm can be massaged onto the stomach and abdominal area to relieve pains.

5) Growing Pains
Growing pains are most common in children under 12, and can be very painful and distressing for children. These are pains in muscles or bones and they tend to occur when children experience rapid growth. Children who have growing pains typically have pain in their legs either late in the day or in the middle of the night and so the Emu Balm is brilliant for applying to soothe these areas.

6) Bruising
The Emu Balm contains Arnica which is so successful against bruising because of its relaxing effect on the bodies blood vessels. It can reduce swelling by stimulating the blood vessels in the bruise and providing much-needed pain relief, this makes the effects of the bruise look and feel less dramatic and prompts it to clear up quicker. Apply the balm thinly to a bruise.

7) Sinus problems
The reflexology points for sinuses are situated at the back of all ten toes, opposite the nails and at the very tip of all the fingers, excluding the thumbs. They are very easy to locate and all represent the sinus tissue, when stimulated, can be very effective in relieving sinus related issues, applying the balm to these areas can help to reduce sinus pain.

8) Sports injuries
We all know the importance of encouraging children to exercise as the percentage of children and adolescents who are obese has more than doubled to what they were 30 years ago, However, with exercising comes a variety of aches and pains that can cause a nuisance for children, and the adults who don’t know how to fix it! The emu balm can be applied anywhere on the skin and so it is great for muscle strains and pulls caused by sport.
