Essential Oils Gentle Enough for Children and Youth When Diluted Properly
We get asked a lot if essential oils are safe for children. The answer is yes and no. When correctly diluted essential oils can be a safe all-natural approach to helping your child live their best life. Although not all essential oils are safe even if they are diluted properly. We have put together some of our favorite Children Safe oils for children 2-10 years of age when diluted effectively. We recommend anyone dilute or use a carrier oil when applying oils topically, but you must always dilute when using 100% pure essential oils on children because the oils are so concentrated, and their bodies need much less than an adult.
