Health Tips for Parents

Essential Oil Safety

Peppermint for headaches and nausea, lavender and chamomile to help with sleep issues, eucalyptus for cough and cold symptoms—essential oils have become increasingly popular in recent years as many people look for more natural or holistic remedies to either complement traditional medicine or to use as an alternative. Essential oils are so popular that the industry earned just under $6 billion dollars in 2016.

Our daily lives are now so entwined with digital media that for many people communication via computer or cell phone has become more commonplace than face-to-face conversation. And it’s not limited to adults. According to a 2016 article by the American Academy of Pediatrics, 75 percent of teenagers have a smartphone and 25 percent of teens describe themselves as "constantly connected" to the internet.
