Trying to get your child to take it? There are a lot of children struggling with anxiety based disorders. I have treated a lot of kids using calming herbs and these are my top ways to get them to take them: Hot chocolate (as it also gives them an essential fatty acid boost – just add after you have made it), homemade fruit juice (not packaged if you can help it), water kefir (any flavour). I have found most kids don’t even notice if it is done at this dosing.
Contraindications: please do not use this product if you are taking benzodiazapines.
