Essential Oil Recipes for Children

Essential Oil Recipes for Children

Essential oils and aromatherapy can be beneficial for children too. Think less is more especially when using essential oils with children under 5 years of age. Below are some essential oil recipes for children to help you get started.

Immune Boost for Children Over 5

Add essential oil drops to aloe gel. Cap and shake well. Use as a nightly chest rub to support overall health and a good night’s sleep.

For children ages 2-5, reduce the thyme and orange essential oil drops to 1 each.

For children under 2, diffuse 1 drop lavender, 1 drop orange and 1 drop thyme essential oil in their room. I don’t recommend using essential oils topically with children under 2.

Natural Lice Treatment

Tea Tree Plant

Pour the aloe gel into the container with a funnel. Add essential oil drops. Pour coconut oil into the container with a funnel. Cap and shake vigorously. Apply treatment to lice infested hair once daily leaving the treatment on for 30 minutes before washing. If you are using this recipe for children under 5, reduce the essential oil drops to 5 of each.

Smelly Shoes Remedy

Smelly Shoes Remedy

Add baking soda to container. Add essential oil drops. Stir well with a spoon. Close container and shake well to thoroughly mix the essential oil into the baking soda. Add 1 teaspoon to stinky shoes and let it sit overnight. Dump the smelly shoes remedy out the following day.
