AROMATHERAPY FOR CHILDREN
WHICH ESSENTIAL OILS CAN BE USED ON CHILDREN AND HOW?
This question gets asked often. My recommendation depends on the age of the child.
Topically in bath or on skin for INFANTS & YOUNG CHILDREN - USE .05% OR 1/2% DILUTION RATE:
0 to 6 months, use only diluted Lavender and Roman Chamomille
After 6 months, add diluted Tea Tree & some citrus oils like Mandarin, Lemon, Sweet Orange or Neroli, & Sandalwood (however, use an ethically harvested Sandalwood like Australian Sandalwood )
