How can Enjoy herbal drops help highly sensitive children? 
The Enjoy herbal drops balance out the water element. When a child has an abundance of the water element, they are extremely caring and sensitive, and manage to absorb everything like a 'sponge'. In this way, they tend to lose balance. The Enjoy herbal drops will guard your child against stress, and support them to feel powerful and less removed from their surroundings.
