- Broad spectrum soother
Super Soother is a calming, multi-use formula designed for everything from restlessness and excitability, to tummy troubles, all the way to sleep concerns and airplane woes. This liquid blend promotes a relaxed state of being during the day and also supports calming at night..
This formula is one of our favorites as it is a broad spectrum soother that supports the nervous system and digestive system. It can be used during the day to help calm excitability and support focus (combines well with Focus Friend). It can also be used in the evening to support winding down before bed (10-30 minutes before sleep). May be given during story time to aid relaxation and tension.
Super Soother can also be used for support during stressful situations such as airplane travel, long car trips, performance nerves in older kids, tummy troubles, gas, stomach discomfort and more. The gentle herbs provide a baseline of soothing support that can be applied to a wide range of situations.
(NOTE: Although this can be used for winding down at bedtime, typically, it will not make a child drowsy when used in the daytime. It is a balancing formula that calms and supports the nervous system).

- Lobelia – grounding and supports “parasympathetic” rest and digest state.
1. What is the ideal age range for this product?
This product is technically safe for children 1 year of age and older, however due to the intended goal of the formula it is best for school-aged children 5+.
2. Can this formula be used on adults?
Yes. Adults can follow the dosage by weight chart and take 1+ full dropper.
3. Is this gluten/dairy/corn/soy/nut free?
4. In terms of supporting attention and focus, what’s the difference between Focus Friend and Mellow Plus?
Focus Friend is for improving alertness via ginkgo (cerebral circulation), gotu kola (nourishes circulation and thyroid), licorice (supports cortisol balance) and Rhodila (adaptogen and supports oxygen uptake). We also add a small amount of Lobelia to support entering the “parasympathetic” branch of the nervous system which allows us to focus, rest, digest, etc. While the Lobelia here helps with hyperactivity, Super Soother also contains this herb *and* offers other pathways to “chill mode.”
If hyperactivity dominates the pattern, go with Super Soother to start, always at the lowest dose of about 5 drops to begin.
If the pattern is more about being tired, moody and unable to focus as the primary concern, start with Focus Friend.
5. Does this need to be taken daily to see results? Or only occasionally when the child needs calming?
It can absolutely be used occasionally as a calming tool (similar to something like chamomile tea or a calming kids tea and can even be put into warm water to make one). However it is also suitable for longer term use if that’s more in line with your child’s needs.
6. Would this be good for adults?
Yes, and it can be nice for stomach aches/anxiety in stomach due to the soothing chamomile.
7. Can you mix this with Attention Plus? Should you only take one at a time?
It’s always best to layer them in one by one with several weeks in between to see what is helping most so that one can track progress and which formulas are making a difference! There are no contraindications in using several together (i.e. Focus Friend in AM/afternoon, Super Soother in PM) but ideally you want to go slowly, one at a time, to notice changes and progress.
8. Can this be combined with Peace Juice for adults?
9. What makes this different from an adult formula?
This formula is designed for kids in the sense it is a bit more mellow than an adult formula. In our adult formula Peace Juice, we use kava which is a stronger, more overtly relaxing herb that acts on tension. This blend is gentler, more sensitive to kids’ taste buds in terms of the herb choices, and kids generally need less which is why it’s dosed by weight so you can find the lowest possible dosage.
10. Will this help with falling asleep or is it just calming?
Both; for some it may simply help them to wind down at bedtime, but for others who are more receptive to gentle herbs like chamomile it can absolutely help with sleep support. It’s the same thing with one adult who feels supremely relaxed after a cup of chamomile, and another adult who needs something stronger and thinks chamomile is a walk in the park.
11. How long would it typically take for it to have/take effect?
With herbs like the chamomile and valerian in this formula, generally effects would be seen same day.
12. Can this be combined with ______?
Always ask your child’s doctor before beginning any herb or supplement. This goes whether they are currently on medications or not — it’s best to have everyone on board.
*NOTE: When starting, you may begin with the lowest dosage of 5-10 drops and work your way up to the full suggested dose for your child’s weight class. Some will respond to lower dosages where others require the full dosage by weight. We ideally want to find the lowest effective dosage that yields an improvement as this saves you money and helps the formula last longer.
Our kid’s line is designed for children over 1 year of age, but is useful for children, teens, and adults alike. See “dosage by weight” chart below. As always, we ask that you check with your child’s practitioner before beginning any herbal or dietary supplement.
This product was exactly what I was looking for! It’s been great for my 7 year old. Helps him sleep well and overall loving it after only 2 weeks. So thankful for a line focused to kids with great, real ingredients.
My 5 year old (picky with tastes and smell) loves the taste of Super Soother! I even carry a spare bottle in my bag with me to give to her on our journey home from work/ school on days when she’s feeling super emotional or over excited after a long/ busy day. It a great way to calm her down and prepare her for a much needed stress free bedtime for both her and this exchusted mama! We love all of our organic Olivia tinctures and now we can’t be without it. ?
I’m a mom of five and one of the kids has always been super sensitive. She feels emotions 100x everyone else and has a hard time calming herself if she’s upset. On days when she’s struggling I’ve started giving her super soother. She calms down within 10 minutes and can regulate herself better. I’m so thankful for this product.
My 3 year old daughter is super active throughout the day and never ever wants to even nap, I always have a hard time putting her to bed, and once she goes to sleep she’s never able to a sleep a full night, she wakes up and runs to our room after sleeping just a few hours… I have been using Super Soother for just a few days now and omg ? it has made our bedtime routine much better and way faster, she’s sleeping more hours in her room before she comes to ours, We both have been able to get more rest at night, I can’t believe the difference it has made in just a few days, ONE HAPPY AND MORE RESTED MOMMMA LOL….
We use this product with our oldest on a regular basis. He deals with hyperactivity and sensory emotional issues. This product has been an amazing tool for him. I can tell he becomes more relaxed, which allows him to focus and be the best version of himself. We have also used this on our youngest when he wants to party all night instead of sleep 😉 it helps to calm him down enough to rest.
We’ve been giving this to our 2 yr old daughter as needed for a few weeks now and it’s been our saving grace on days when big toddler emotions have overtaken! It helps her settle and restart a rough day and helps us have sweeter and quieter bedtimes on those days when she has too much energy to settle herself. I’ve recommended this to everyone we know with a toddler and we’ll always keep it in the “medicine” cabinet!
Super Soother! The product I was most excited about in the kids line and it did not disappoint! With 2 toddlers (1 & 2 y.o.) I’ve used it for bedtime soothing after a busy day, belly aches, and easing stress before/during travel. My kids are used to taking herbs (doctor in the natural medicine field here) and Olivia’s formulations are very palatable. Over the holidays my family was surprised I was using a product line I pay full price for (doctors buy supplements/herbs at wholesale) and I said it’s absolutely worth it! I have the entire kid’s line and we also use HerbalTussin (MUST HAVE), Natal Nourish, Brain Juice (hubby), & Liver Juice (hubby until I’m done BF’ing). Again, paying full price for all of it! It’s also worth noting, my boys are very big but I still started with 5 drops and saw positive effects.
My 4 year old struggles with social anxiety so I was so excited when Olivia released this product. I like to give it to him 30 minutes before we go out and it has really helped him remain calm when he has to interact with new people. I’ve given it to all 3 of my children before bed and always notice they seem to drift off so quickly. We love Super Soother! I’ll definitely be buying another bottle once ours is empty.
As a nurse practitioner and a mom of 2, I can say Super Soother does exactly what it says it does. I gave has given every night for 1 week(since we got it) and our 5 year old daughter, has been sleeping through the night and bedtimes are SOOOO much easier. She settles faster and is asleep within 15 mins where before it was 30 mins to a hour EVERY night.
