Babies’ skin is often sensitive and that’s why you have to be careful with what you apply to them. And since you are going to make use of essential oils, you need not worry much because these oils come from natural sources which mean that they are safe to use.However, since you are dealing with babies here, it would still be important to keep in mind some tips, such as: -Do not use essential oils for babies younger than 3 months old. During this stage, babies are extremely sensitive and it would still be best to check with your doctor first before applying anything on them. Lavender and Chamomile are the first two oils that you can use for babies. Don’t use eucalyptus oil unless babies are over 2 years of age as this may be too extreme for them. -Dilute the oils with water well before using so that the oils will not be too strong for the babies.-Do not give them essential oils orally! -You don’t have to be an expert when it comes to massaging babies or children-you only have to be very gentle and make sure that with each touch come love and affection. It’s very important for a child to feel loved and wanted and that’s what he/she should feel when you massage him/her with essential oils.-1% dilution or 5 drops essential oil to 2 Tbsp carrier oil is good for babies up to 2 years of age. After which, you can use 2% dilution or 10 drops essential oil per 2 Tbsp carrier oil already.-And, you also have to make sure that you use only pure, essential oils. Synthetic oils and overly fragrant oils have no healing properties and won’t make your babies/children feel better.
