Autism can be described as a disorder of the senses – the brain relies on information from the senses such as touch, taste or smell in order to help make sense of our environment.
Associating certain smells with positive experience helps provide reassurance, well being and provides sensory enrichment. Aromatherapy is an easy and effective way to help with this.
Children often seek familiar smells to calm themselves, and the routine use of Pepex™, combined with a gentle massage, can help relax your child and engage their senses of smell and touch simultaneously. Done at home where they are comfortable, this procedure helps them connect the senses and focus on social and motor skills.
Away from home? Pepex™ is both an inhaler and roll-on aromatherapy in a pocket sized package – so positive, calming reinforcement can be had at hand.
Pepex™ is all natural, using eucalyptus, menthol and borneol oils. It is among the many natural products offered by NutraLinks, LLC, – a company established by two pharmacists who are mothers as well. Concerned with what they saw as the overuse and abuse of over-the-counter and prescription meds, they started looking for safe, natural products for their families to help relieve common symptoms of everyday ailments.
Pepex™ is registered with FDA.
