Extra Notes —-
doTERRA essential oils are safe and gentle enough to use on newborns and babies, but some things to keep in mind:
– Always dilute the essential oil in a carrier oil (such as fractionated coconut oil or olive oil) before using it on your baby. Babies and for children under 3 years old, add 1-2 drops of essential oil to 1-2 tablespoons of carrier oil.
Take care not to get the oil on your baby’s hands because they may rub their eyes.
– If an essential oil accidentally gets into a baby’s eye, dilute with a vegetable oil, such as olive oil or fractionated coconut oil, NOT with water as it drives the oil deeper.
– Use only diluted essential oils in the bath. Babies have very sensitive skin.
– Only use Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils on your baby’s sensitive skin.
All DŌTERRA Essential oils have been harvested and filtered to be 100% Certified Pure Therapedic Grade Essential Oils …. For your Peace of Mind with your children.
