Protecting Your Children From Germs
Protecting Your Children From Germs: Build and support a healthy immune system
The immune system of your body is the ultimate insurance for good health. Because our immune system function is so important, we use essential oils for our immune system year round for ourselves and our children.
Are you uncertain as to whether you can use your favorite essential oils with your children?
No problem – Young Living has products specifically formulated for kids. We enjoy them with our kids too!
We even have an entire line devoted to children: KidScents
We like to use a diffuser because aromatherapy is an excellent way to enjoy the benefits of essential oil without the worry of skin reactions. Inhaled oils have long been studied for their ability to enhance feelings of relaxation, encouragement, excitement, focus, and well-being. Diffused oils may support a healthier indoor environment. That’s always a bonus when you’ve got a houseful of kids.
Remember that oils are potent, and you only need a very small amount to achieve efficacy, especially when it comes to children. A little bit goes a very long way. Adjust amounts accordingly.
Dilute with a carrier oil: V-6 massage oil is great for diluting the oils. Even though most oils tend to
be non-irritating on the skin (especially on the bottom of the feet, where the skin is thickest), it’s a
great idea to dilute essential oil in a good carrier oil before applying to children. You’ll still get the
same benefits of the essential oil—you’re just adding extra moisture and pampering delicate child skin.
It’s fun to see children enjoying the benefits of oils as well as understanding which oils might be good in various situations and asking for them as needed. They’re learning to be cognizant of their own health while actively looking for natural ways to support well-being.
