This blend has been such a comfort to the little growing people inside this house. I love being able to have something healthy and soothing (without any side effects!) to offer to my son when he complains of growing pains. Note that the more you massage the more refreshing and cooling the sensation becomes. I suggest plenty of dilution the first time you use this on your child, in case they don't particularly enjoy that cool sensation.
