We all want the very best for our precious children and creating a healthy and happy environment is an important part of wellbeing. Aromatherapy helps to enhance the mood of the whole family and creates comfort and relaxation towards the end of a busy day.
How can we use aromatherapy safely for babies and children?
Essential oils are considered too strong for use on baby’s skin and a little overwhelming on their developing systems. We can still use aromatherapy in the form of tea and in a diffuser.
Children love aromatherapy and will make it abundantly clear which oils they like the best. Use a low dilution of 1% when applying to your child’s skin. Stick to the gentler essential oils such as Lavender, Rose, Mandarin, Sandalwood, Chamomile, Spearmint, Lemon, Orange, Lemon Myrtle and Neroli.
We love using aromatherapy to create a safe, healthy and happy environment for our loved ones. From a happy morning to a restful evening essential oils can support us all throughout the day.

Most mainstream cleaning products contain chemical ingredients that can be detrimental to health & the environment. The accumulation of toxins from commercial cleaning products can act as additional environmental stressors in our lives. Because of their antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties, essential oils make the perfect natural ingredient for household products.
Making your own natural, toxic-free cleaning products is simple, cost-effective and better for the environment.
