Kid (and Mom!) Approved Oils + Supplements
A lot of questions come up when it comes to the safe use of essential oils on and around kids. doTERRA launched their kid collection and I dove in to the products to see what they were all about. I love the kits and think they are a great way to introduce your kids to essential oils. You can tell that they are formulated with kids in mind and the colourful packaging and roll-on tops make them easy and fun! Don't be surprised if you find yourself using them as well!
(Note: These are to be used with adult supervision and are not recommended for children under the age of 3.)
The Kid's Oil Collection comes with seven kid-friendly blends that help them learn how to safely apply their oils to their tummies, hands, head, and heart. Plus, the roller balls are easy to bring with you on-the-go - just throw them in your bag!
I like pairing the oil application with affirmations. It's so important for our children to be able to identify and talk about their feelings, and this is a step in the right direction for a healthy mind, body, and heart.

Steady™ Grounding Blend helps balance mood and soothe upset feelings when emotions seem close to the surface. As a parent, you notice when your child seems to be extra sensitive.

This blend combines essential oils of Amyris Wood, Balsam Fir, Coriander, and Magnolia with Fractionated Coconut Oil.
