Could a spray be the answer to you calming your child down? The Doctors test out Chill Child - Kid Calming Mist, which was being sold on Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop website. We used the spray on the spirited kids of two show staffers.
Producer Chelsea tested the spray on son Olen, who she says is a ball of energy. Senior Field Director Jenn says daughter Alexa Valentine is usually the sweetest, but lately has been having tantrums before going to bed.
The aromatherapy mist contains rosewater, oils of lavender, jasmine, chamomile, and geranium along with sonically tuned gem elixirs (amethyst, jade, selenite, and rose quartz) and Reiki-charged crystals.
So how did the spray do with our staffer's kids? Jenn says the spray distracted her daughter and Chelsea's son seemed to enjoy the spray's scent. The Doctors note that distraction can be a helpful tool for a child acting out, but ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says that he would rather have a kid blow bubbles instead of spending close to $30 dollars on the spray.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho also suggests having minimized distractions for your little ones and to get them outside as much as possible during the day in order to let out their more wild moments.
