Get Well Soon Bear
Merry Meet, My heart goes out when a little one gets sick. Especially my little ones. This is something that may help your little one feel a bit better. You will need to be a bit crafty for this one. :))
What You Will Need
- Teddy bear or other lovey that you can restuff. (pick either an old stuffy, or grab an inexpensive one from somewhere, a smaller one)
- Flax Seeds
- lavender essential oil
- Eucalpytus essential oil
- peppermint essential oil
- dried lavender herbs
- dried chamomile
Carefully make a hole in the seam of the stuffy and remove all the stuffing.
Prepare a mix of flax seed and several drops of each of the oils in a bowl.
Restuff the stuffed animal with the flax seed mixture. It will give it a soothing scent for your child.
Sew the animal back up.
Charge the stuffed animal with your intent to help heal your child.
"With this animal I send my love,
filled with comforting scents,
and help from up above,
soothe my little where they lay
make them feel better soon so that they can play
I charge this bear with my intent
heal my child and make them content."
Depending on the stuffed animal you have chosen some can be safely put in the microwave to warm them. Start with very small intervals and shake the stuffy in between. Please use caution not to overheat the stuffy. Make sure there is nothing metal on the animal. You can check when you choose a stuffed animal to work with. You can also place the stuffy in the freezer to use as a cold pack.
*Some of you might be interested, I came across this site when I was looking for the safety on microwaving plushies. Apparently they make stuffies like this to sell. :)) For those of you who don't want to make one, you could get one from here and then charge it with your intent. http://www.warmbuddy.com/warmbuddy_plush.html
