A TOOL FOR MOOD MANAGEMENT & MINDFULNESS
Empower your child with a tool that will teach them to:
*Harness strong emotions and control temper
*Be responsible for their actions
*Be mindful of themselves and others
WHY ESSENTIAL OILS?
High quality essential oils are undeniably beneficial for our overall wellness. Essential oils have a natural ability to enhance our mood and stabilize our emotions. Our sense of smell is 10,000 times more powerful than any other sense. The recognition of smell is immediate – this is a primary reason our mood and scent are so strongly connected. Essential oils can have a powerful influence over how you think, feel and behave.
HOW TO USE THIS BRACELET
*Have your child put on the bracelet. Spend a couple minutes discussing things that they are grateful for.
*Infuse the bracelet by massaging two tiny drops of essential oil into the black lava stones. Be sure to only use a few drops; you don’t want the oil to absorb through and soak onto the stretch cord.
*Have your child take a few deep breaths – slowly breathing in the essential oil. Remind them that anytime they feel scared, frustrated or shy throughout the day, they can smell their bracelet and be reminded that they are CALM, BRAVE, SMART and LOVED.
Doing this practice each morning will create a sense of empowerment. It will help ensure that they remember to use their bracelet throughout the day to help strengthen their gratefulness and assist in understanding and managing their emotional state.
Behind every courageous child battling a disease, there is a brave and resilient family. We want nothing more than for them to focus their attention solely on what is most important - the health and well-being of their family. We understand the challenges that families are faced with when hardship occurs and strive to ease the financial burdens of everyday life. We at Drops of Gratitude will donate a profit of sales from the DG Kids collection directly to a family in need and will also match all proceeds collected.

This is Jemma (Jemma Sparkle). She is 4 years old. Don't be fooled by her age, Jemma has proven to be an incredible fighter! She is brave and her heart is strong. In early 2019 Jemma was diagnosed with FIRES (Febrile Infection Related Epilepsy Syndrome) - a rare form of epilepsy. FIRES strikes children without warning and unfortunately there is no known cure. The seizures are extremely hard to treat. Due to the intensity of Jemma's care, her parents, Trisha and Derek, have now had to take on the full time commitment to care for her from home. If you would like to help support the Graham family further, you may do so by donating to their GoFundMe account.
Update as of February 2021:
"Jemma has been home and recovering since being discharged in July 2019. There has been a few admissions to the Children's Hospital since. The most recent set back was earlier this year for her newly diagnosed Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
Jemma has had some amazing progress over the last year. She can now sit up on her own and even began to stand with assistance. She is desperate to walk again, and that seems to be the only thing she wants to practice with her physical therapist. Before being sick, she loved to run and play at the park. We can tell that she is eager to do those things again. She continues to have difficulty swallowing and must have all her liquids, feeds and medications delivered by a tube attached directly into her stomach. She also has not yet been able to speak due to the trauma that the seizures caused in her brain. We are praying that this area of her brain will heal one day and we will get to hear our sweet girl laugh and sing once again".
The Graham family is working towards saving to send Jemma to an intensive rehab center this summer that works with kids (and adults) who have experienced neurological damage. They would like to help Jemma build the strength to walk again as she enrolls into Grade 1 without having to depend on a wheelchair.
