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  
Age Essential Oil
Newborn 0-1 drop
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.
