A Quick {Visual} Guide to Essential Oils for Babies and Kids

Make a chest rub to support the respiratory system. For ages 2+, add two drops of RC and two drops of Lemon to 2 tbsp. of coconut oil and apply to chest, back and neck.



Relax little bodies with SleepyIze or Gentle Baby in the diffuser for a good night’s rest. Rub Seedlings calming baby oil on back, chest or feet. Little bodies need lots of sleep when they are feeling run down!


Cool down with a few drops of Lavender in the bath or on a cool towel to put on forehead or back of neck. Rub down spine with coconut oil and a drop of Frankincense & give lots of extra snuggles.


Make a Thieves roller based on dilution ratios per age (example would be 1 drop of Thieves to 30 drops of v-6 or carrier oil for age two), roll on bottoms of feet all throughout the day. In a regular rollerball, we would typically do 4-6 drops of Thieves and top with a carrier oil for 2-5 year olds, and only 2-3 drops if 6 months to two years.



To help even the littlest of babies relax, apply a drop of Gentle Baby to blankets or bed sheets. Put a drop on your hands & rub on bottoms of babies feet or diffuse!
