How should essential oils best be used for children?
For myself, newborns to 3 months, diffusing is the safest to go. After 3 months, I usually do with a swipe under their feet or it can be diluted with a carrier oil like coconut oil or olive oil. There are different types of carrier oil that functions differently. Try reading up =)
I wouldn't use them directly on children. If you do, please make sure the oils are diluted. I like to use them in a diffuser. A few drops in a room diffuser and the room will be smelling gorgeous in a few minutes.
