There are varying opinions at what age to use essential oils on children. MrandMrsNurse suggest only using essential oils on children with great care and making sure you are diluting the oils correctly. If you're unsure seek advice and instructions from a licensed medical practitioner

Guidelines and Tips

Dilute for topical use. Always, always, always dilute essential oils with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or almond oil, when topically applying them on a child. Their skin is more sensitive and using oils “neat” can lead to sensitivities and rashes.

Diffuse oils for aromatic use. When diffusing oils, use a diffuser that is made for essential oils.

Don’t put oils in humidifiers or nebulizers as those aren’t made of plastics with a high enough grade to not be ruined by the oils. When diffusing oils for yourself or your children, make sure air can flow – either diffuse in a large open room, or keep doors open in bedrooms or other smaller rooms.

 

Never ever put essential oils directly in the ears, eyes or nose. When applying essential oils topically on children, make sure they can’t touch the oils and then accidentally rub their eyes. If that ever happens, use fractionated coconut oil to ease the burn.

ALWAYS test a small area before using a new single oil or blend.
