Some Tips for Fever in Children
- Lemon & Lavender Essential Oil or Frankincense Essential Oil: Mix 1 drop each of Lavender & Lemon with 1 pump of V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex Massage Oil on your palm and gently apply onto the spine in downwards motion.
- Scraping: If you happen to have a guasha scraping board/ceramic soup spoon, you can gently scrap your child’s back (on both sides of the spine) in downward and outward motion, keeping the strokes short and light. There will be slight redness and even some red spots observed on the skin and that’s ok. Just remember to keep your strokes light and not exert too much pressure on the skin to prevent injuring your child. Do cover your child up and prevent them from getting exposed to the wind/aircon afterwards and feed them with some warm water.
