Before you use or ingest any essential oil MAKE CERTAIN of it’s therapeutic-grade quality!
98% of the essential oils sold today are NOT suitable for inhalation, topical application or ingesting. NEVER attempt to use another brand of essential oil like you would use a Young Living oil, I don’t care how cheap it is – you will harm yourself and your kids!
NOTE REGARDING INFANTS AND CHILDREN
I do not recommend Valerian for infants and small children.
Always use essential oils responsibly and keep out of reach of children.
Remember, kids are much smaller than us and some have special needs. Always dilute an essential oil with a carrier oil (Young Living’s V-6 massage oil, or olive or almond oil) for use on children ages 4+ – mix one drop essential oil to one tablespoon carrier oil.
Infants: NEVER apply any essential oil directly to an infants skin, they are way to potent. Instead, put a drop in your palm, rub your palms together and put the essential oil on yourself or gently brush over babies clothing.
6 years and upward: always use a carrier oil (Young Living’s V-6 massage oil, or olive or almond oil) and massage onto soles of feet.
These recipes are for adults, they can be adapted for kids by making them much more diluted.
