Essential oils not only have an enticing aroma but are also packed full of antioxidants, which potentially makes them beneficial for you and your skin. So it’s not hard to understand why so many want to pass on that potential goodness to their children.
However, despite being natural and chemical free, that’s not to say that essential oils do not come with their fair share of risks. Most importantly, people who aren’t properly educated in essential oils should NOT be messing around with essential oils and children. When seeking advice on essential oils, it is important to get your information from someone that knows and studies them, NOT from those who sell multi-level-marketing essential oils, and especially not from Doctor Google.
If you are going to have essential oils around the house, it is important that you keep them out of reach for children to keep them swallowing it, or getting it into contact with their delicate skin and eyes. Even the smallest amounts of essential oils can cause serious poisoning and skin irritation for a small child. If these worst-case scenarios do happen, ring poison control and seek urgent medical care immediately.
Another risk of essential oils is that they are highly concentrated and therefore can be harmful to you and your child if not used properly. Well made products that have their essential oils carefully combined to ensure there are no spikes in their components to ensure that they have the recommended amount means that organic children’s products can be used with great confidence and stunning results.
