Burning incense can help create a stable and peaceful field. Infants are very sensitive to energy, but they cannot express themselves well. As a result, they show their emotions by crying when feeling uncomfortable, hungry, wet in the diaper, or disturbed by negative energy field.
It is believed that children are vulnerable to negative energy before their fontanels are closed. Consequently, if adults bring them to crowded places, such as supermarkets, hospitals, airports, and so on, the kids may become exceptionally restless and fretful in the evening or at night. It is likely that they cannot sleep well and that they are easy to wake up in scare. Physically, they may throw up milk, look absent-minded or blue in the face, cry all the time, or suffer from diarrhea. In such a case, many seniors may assume that the kids are interfered by negative energy and should seek some solutions to calm down the kids as soon as possible.
Under such circumstances, it is advised that the adults should burn some natural incense to purify the space while hugging and consoling the kids. As soon as the kids smell the fragrance of the incense, they can quickly calm down, simply because they rely on their sense of smell to connect to their moms before their vision is good enough. Their sense of smell gives them a sense of security. In fact, our sense of smell has a lot to do with our emotions and sense of security.
On the other hand, natural incense is comprised of many kinds of precious herbs, some of which have the properties to calm down or ease our mind. This is exactly why we can resort to medicinal incense to help calm down the body and mind of a restless baby. As soon as the baby feels warm, stable, and safe again, he or she will sleep safe and sound.
Relatively, the airway of infants is narrower than that of adults, and infants tend to suffer from allergy. Thus, when burning incense, we have to pay attention to ventilation and keep the incense about two meters away from the infants. Some parents even trust the origin and quality of the incense, and would smoke their babies in clockwise circles three times and likewise in the counterclockwise direction. Finally, they would even smoke the last sacrum of the infants for two or three seconds. It is advised that we should smoke the infants on their backs for fear that the infants may choke on smoke. This is done to chase away the infants’ negative energy and thus the infants can gradually relax and calm down.
According to the feedbacks from some parents, burning incense really helps calm down fretful and uneasy kids. Therefore, those parents also burn incense to soothe the restless kids in the midnight in case they do not sleep well.
