Children can get diarrhea for many reasons, such as physical problems like bacteria, viruses, flu and ear infections. Maybe the child has an allergic reaction to a medication or even a food. Stress from nervous tension can also cause diarrhea in children, maybe from a bully at school or from hearing parental arguments that he or she doesn’t understand.

Whatever the cause of the diarrhea, it is very important that you do not let the child become dehydrated. Replace the lost fluids with lots of liquids and if the diarrhea continues for more than 24 hours, consult your physician. Give your child diluted soups and drinks with honey in them. Do not force them to eat solid food and don’t give them any dairy products because that will only make things worse.

Use any of the oils below  in a massage oil to rub gently on the abdomen:

You can also use this massage oil formula:
