For many of our Young Living members, their favourite essential oil or oil-infused products relate to their beauty routines, cleaning practices or the ways in which they choose to relax and unwind, whether that be with our invigorating massage oils or by blending their favourite aromas to concoct their own signature scents.
For our youngest oilers, however, we know the importance of dilution to protect their sensitive skin, of simple storage and practicability when it comes to easy access on the go for parents, and of the child-friendly ingredients necessary to ensure that everything from homework time to bedtime goes ahead without a hitch.
With this in mind, we created our exceptional KidScents® range and in this blog, we’ll be explaining how best to use essential oils on your children’s skin before taking you through some of the fantastic products in our KidScents® collection – so what are you waiting for?
Can I use essential oils on my child?
Essential oils can be fantastic for children and babies but it’s always important to exercise caution to ensure they are introduced safely given their sensitive systems. There are no set rules when it comes to dilution but using our specially-designed KidScents® collection alongside a moisturising carrier oil such as our Young Living V-6® Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex offers the best way to minimise the possibility of irritation.
