Good to know!
I love the Thieves Hand Santitizer!
I just put Thieves and RC in my ER order for August to prepare for school.
half the amount adults would take would be best for him, Eddie…. so 1 oz each morning before school. As far as Thieves, dilute it with V6 oil or coconut oil and apply on the bottom of his feet. You could also take a 10 oz bottle and mix 30 drops of Thieves with V6 oil – just count out 30 drops, then fill the rest of the bottle with V6 oil. Hope that helps!
Hear, hear! I agree with Mirdza, whole-heartedly!
NingXia Red should be a must! Along with OmegaGize.
Good one and thanks a lot for sharing!
Hi there question about Ningxia how
much my 5 and a half baby boy should consume everyday before school ? also how to use thieves in him for immune support ?
Hi Eddie, Ningxia Red® is generally safe for everyone; however, we recommend you speak to your health care provider for specific recommendations for your child. Essential oils should be diluted for use on children. We suggest using a patch test procedure prior to ensure the oil is properly diluted for the child. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of EO to a patch of skin such as the forearm. Thanks for stopping by with your question!
Do yo have any suggestions for taking Inner Defense? I have a person who has difficulty swallowing large capsules. I was wondering if anyone has tried to put it in warm tea and if it would dissolve?
Hi Darla, Removing the Inner Defense™ from the capsule may result in unpleasant aftertaste or effects. If you do remove it from the capsule, you will want to dilute it further by either drinking it with milk or mixing it with vegetable oil. We are unsure what effect putting the oils on food may have and while you may want to eat something while taking these supplements to prevent additional aftertaste, we think putting the oils on food may not be the most effective method of use for these products.
I have a question about vetiver and cedarwood for focus in children. My 11 yr old seems to respond to them when it is time to do homework. I am looking for advise on how much of each to use and if they should be rubbed on and/or diffused. Do they need a carrier oil?
Hi Stephanie, Please refer to the individual label directions for usage instructions. Cedarwood can create a relaxing, calming, and comforting atmosphere and is labeled for aromatic or topical use. Vetiver essential oil has an earthy and grounding aroma and can be diffused for its calming and relaxing fragrance. If using topically, Essential oils should be diluted for use on children. We suggest using a patch test procedure to ensure the oil is properly diluted for the child. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of EO with 10 ml of Young Living V-6 vegetable oil to a patch of skin such as the forearm. If irritation occurs, apply V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex or any pure vegetable oil to dilute. When diffusing, we suggest diffusing a small amount of essential oil for short periods of time until you have determined if your child has any sensitivity to diffusing. Thanks for stopping by!
Hi. Is Super C Chewable safe for kids? My kids was 6 yrs and 8 years and I’d like to know the appropriate dosage. Thank you.
Hi Santi, Since Super C Chewables was formulated for adults, we would suggest speaking with a health care provider to determine what is right for your children.
Many years ago, while attending college, I used Clarity, to get my day started. Worked like its suppose to – I was ready to learn.
Hey there! Are oils ok to use on my 5-year-old if diluted? I’m hoping that everything that’s in it is ok and safe?! I’ve had mixed reviews from different people. Please ease my mind. Thank you!
Hi Jessica, Although we do recommend extreme caution when using essential oils for children, through our research and 20+ years of experience, we have found that essential oils can be safe and beneficial for people of all ages. Essential oils should be diluted for use on children. We suggest using a patch test procedure prior to ensure the oil is properly diluted for the child. To perform a patch test, apply 1-2 drops of EO to a patch of skin such as the forearm. If you have further concerns, we suggest consulting a health care provider who is familiar with essential oils.
I would like to use oils at my small Day Care center
To help children stay healthy as well as help them focus and stay alert .Sometimes to calm them down and help relax any recommendation?
Dominika, I also thought this would be a good idea at my daughter’s Kids Yoga Class BUT you need to get parent permission before using on their children. You may not be aware of all medical or personal belief systems of the parents. Just a friendly reminder to please be cautious so you do not open yourself to litigation. 🙂
Hello, newbie here: I’m of the same mindset though, I work in a public school…. what about diffusing? I don’t need permission to diffuse, do I? I feel like that’s like saying I cant have a plug in or wax warmer in the class room 🙂 I do understand that I can’t apply topically without parental consent. Thank you.
I have diffused oils in my classroom for the last couple of years. I would never apply oils to a student, but I agree that the diffuser is like having a plug in or a wax warmer. I do monitor that no student is being bothered by them. I have had students ask questions, but haven’t had any real complaints.
at what age can kids start taking inner defense capsules?
Hi Kristina! Inner Defense was formulated for adults. Due to the extreme sensitivity of children, we would recommend consulting a health care provider prior to use.
Your product are incredible. My kids are very happy when they drink the Ningxia and more tasty are Ningxia Zyng.
Which oil is a good one to diffuse in a child’s bedroom for study time
Hi Sherrie! GeneYus is a great blend for young minds that are focusing on projects. Hope this helps!
There is nothing better for our family than a shot of NingXia Red with our Chocolate Protein shake spiced up with a little peppermint!
Should we use a carrier oil for,genyus
Hi Kathleen! Glad you stopped by! Geneyus™ is pre-diluted for direct application. As sensitivities are highly individual, for the first application, we would suggest conducting a patch test on a small area of skin such as the forearm. Hope this helps!
NingXia Red is a favorite school essential for us! We love drinking it every morning and taking a Super C chewable too!
I believe this is from the Kids Scents collection that are already diluted.
Valor should definitely be on here! Valor and joy will go on my babies every morning.
Hi Janice, where are you applying the Joy?
We love to rub Thieves Essential Oil on the bottom of feet before bed time to support a healthy immune system. For focus and concentration my teenager has found peppermint or Citrus Freah diffused while studying and applied to wrists and/or back of neck before testing promotes his best effort.
I love Ningxia Nitro and Ningxia Zyng! Love the way our family feels after drinking it.
Take a look at these products! They can help you meet your goals! Remember, DREAM BIG!
WE LOVE to use ImmuPro and MightyZymes to ramp up our immune system and have a healthy lifestyle year round!
I like to move it! Move it! When life gets busy, love to use Valour II, Peppermint and Cedarwood. Really excited to taste our new Ningxia Zyng! Thank you Young Living!!
