When I first started using essential oils, I didn’t use them on or around my kids at all. I was a little terrified the oils might somehow hurt or damage my kids.
Turns out my intuition to be careful around my kids was good, but a little over the top. As I’ve learned more about essential oils and safety, I’ve found it is important to be careful with essential oils around kids. You can’t just treat kids like mini-adults.
It’s important to always dilute your oils when using them on kids. There are indeed some oils that should not be used on kids.
That said, there are plenty of oils you can use on and around your kids. In fact, these oils are much safer (and even therapeutic) for your kids—much more so than the many toxins we often use around our kids.
Do you want to get started using essential oils with your kids, but you’re just not sure how? Or maybe you’re afraid you’ll use them incorrectly and damage your kids forever! That’s not likely, but I do understand the fear :).
