Our little ones need the benefits of essential oils just as much, if not more, than we do!
The most important thing to note when using oils with kids is to ensure oils are diluted properly for safe application.
Young Living makes it easy because they have perfectly diluted blends ready to go through their KidScents line.
These aren’t the only blends you need to use with your kids, but it’s a great starting point.
So whether your kids are in school and they pick up whatever is going around or it’s just that time of year when we all start to get sick, these are some amazing and simple blends to help keep your kids healthy and well.
