Essential Oils (3)

This is a great question I get asked and the answer depends upon the age of your child. As with anything though, always seek the advice of a qualified naturopath, clinical aromatherapist or your GP as the health of your child will also have to be taken into consideration.

Essential Oils shouldn’t be used on or around children under 6 months of age as their immune systems are immature and their skins highly sensitive.

You can start to introduce essential oils via a diffuser from the age of 6 months and only with Essential oils that are child safe. It also best to use the diffuser intermittently as young children are sensitive to aromas. It is very important to only use Essential oils and not fragrance oils as fragrance oils are full of chemicals and toxic ingredients. When selecting an Essential Oil it is also best to try and find a Certified Organic brand. This way you will know the oil is botanically pure and hasn’t been rectified or adapted in anyway.

To use Essential Oils topically (in very low dilutions and always with a carrier oil) should only be applied to children aged 2 and over and again, only with child safe Essential Oils. This should also only be done sparingly as a child’s immune system is still developing and allergies can appear. If at anytime you are not sure, always seek the advice of a professional that knows your child’s health and history.

Each oil listed in the shop has the appropriate age listed as well as dilutions and warnings. If you have any questions, please contact me.

The quick answer is no. No pure Essential oil is water soluble. To create a water soluble oil the oil must be rectified and have a solublising agent added (making it no longer pure). Most fragrant oils are water soluble, however, if you come across an Essential oil that claims to be ‘water soluble’ you can be guaranteed it isn’t pure.

These essential oils are certified organic and 100% pure. Essential oils can be used in many different therapeutic ways, however, we do not recommend ingesting essential oils without consulting a professional who has suitable training in either pharmacology, physiology, aromatherapy chemistry, medical herbalism or a GP. This is due to the fact that without proper training or knowledge, ingesting essential oils can cause serious health issues. We understand that there are some companies advertising the fact that their oils can be ingested, however, we feel this is irresponsible. Without knowing someone’s health, both present and historically, no company can accurately advise a client on what oils to ingest and in what quantities. True essential oils are extremely potent and as with anything ingested, certain amounts and certain oils can be hazardous. Please seek the advice of a professional as listed above.
