Starting Made Easy

Why these oils?

Like with most things in aromatherapy, this isn't an absolute rule either. This list was designed to provide options that are generally safe for most children - even babies when it comes to diffusion. Following recommended general guidelines for use, this list is as gentle and safe as possible while providing parents with a selection of oils that enables them to effectively cover a wide range of therapeutic needs without breaking the bank.

Pre-made Starter Kits

I haven't yet seen a starter kit for children that I love, and that is what prompted building a list of my own recommendations on the matter. Most starter kits out there contain oils or blends that really are not the best to be using with kids, so there is potentially a lot of money wasted using these to start your therapeutic collection. And this way, buy from your company of choice! Keep to your comfort level while getting a set that you can acutally use with your children. You can also easily replace any oil listed in the event that your child's personal health requires it.
