Guide To Diluting Essential Oils For Your Kids And Babies

Due to essential oils’ potency, they might be a little harsh for your kid’s or baby’s skin. That’s why it is recommended to dilute it first before application. Dilution is combining the essential oil with a carrier oil (e.g. virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil) which will lessen the probability of skin reactions. It does not deteriorate the effectiveness of the essential oils. And unlike essential oils, they don’t evaporate when placed in a clear bottle and exposed to light (Pure essential oils are recommended to be kept in an amber glass bottle and not exposed to the sunlight). Just keep in mind that when you blend them, it will then follows the expiration date of the carrier oil.

Stay on the safe side! And follow the Young Living’s dilution chart for proper ratio. Essential oils are concentrated so a little goes a long a way!

Guide To Diluting Essential Oils For Your Child



  1. Consult a health professional before administering oils, especially if your baby or child is sick.
  2. To avoid sensitive little noses, dilute a small amount of oil in an ultrasonic diffuser next to cribs and play areas.
  3. Babies love to splash during bath time; avoid adding oils in their tub, so they don’t ingest or get any of it in their eyes.
  4. Wear essential oils on your skin to help your kids acclimate to the fragrance.
  5. Heavily dilute a new essential oil following the guide above and perform a spot test on your child’s arm or leg. If no reaction occurs after several minutes, the oil is probably okay to use.
