ESSENTIAL OIL DILUTION RATES FOR CHILDREN
Essential oils are very powerful. That's one reason why we love them so much. However, because they are so powerful, we need to remember that a little bit goes a long way, especially with children. When you use essential oils topically on a child, you must dilute them even more than you do for an adult. Here is a handy, easy-to-read chart that will show you how much to dilute essential oils for children under 12.
When you are diluting an oil that is already blended in a base of FCO, you adjust the ratio by tripling the number of drops. So if a neat (unblended) oil needs to be diluted, put 1-2 drops in 1 ounce of carrier oil. You can dilute a blended oil 3-6 drops in 1 ounce carrier oil.
For application on a child, a general rule is to use:
|Dilute in 1 ounce (30 ml) of carrier oil|
|2-6 months||0-1 drop|
|6-12 months||1-2 drops|
|1-4 years||1-5 drops|
|5-7 years||3-6 drops|
|8-12 years||5-10 drops|
Always test on a nickel sized portion of skin first. Make sure your skin can handle the oil/blend before using.
