Is there anyone else in your life that would benefit from something like this? If you have children at home, they are prime candidates. Often, children and teens do not have the coping skills to stop extreme reactions to overwhelming emotions. Sadness, anxious feelings, fear, and anger can lead to meltdowns or lashing out.
In my experience, when kids are in the midst of these reactions, a suggestion to try some deep breathing or to analyze what they are feeling isn't always well received. But hand them their toolkit that contains a cuddly stuffed animal with an application of Lavender Essential Oil or other calming oil and perhaps a sketch pad with gel pens, and you may be able to stop that extreme reaction in its tracks. Really a great support for parents.
These toolkits definitely are not an emotional cure all. They are not a substitute for professional emotional and mental health treatment if needed. But they can be useful to help break a downward spiral of negative emotions or just to brighten up a rough day.
