Dilute Essential Oils for Children

It’s always best to dilute Essential Oils when using them for Children and Infants with a Carrier Oil such as fractionated Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Apricot Kernel Oil.  I always choose an Organic carrier oil to keep the solution as pure as possible.

Newborns and Infants                  1-2 drops Essential Oil with 2 Tablespoons Carrier Oil

Older Children                              1-2 drops Essential Oil with 1/2 to 1 Teaspoons Carrier Oil

If using the oils in a bath, ALWAYS use a bath gel base as a dispersing agent for the essential oils. Just add a few drops of essential oil to the bath gel and mix before adding to the bath water.
