It is also a great Feng Shui idea to have an essential oils aromatherapy diffuser, to be used as needed. For example, if your children feel cranky and restless, a couple of drops of chamomile and lavender can calm them. Or, if they feel tired and unwell, go for peppermint, lemon grass or eucalyptus and see their energy levels revived.
