Holistic Health For Children (with essential oils)


IMG_5890If you are anything like me, you are in love with essential oils. Not because it’s the latest fad but because you have deep respect and trust in Plants and you know that essentials oils are the easiest, most convenient way to access the potent essence of a plant.

One of the things many of us discover when we decide to use alternative therapies for our well being, is that we become fully responsible for our choices and experiences. Our society encourages and sometimes demands, that we give our power away, to doctors, governments, schools and so on, beginning right from birth and it can take a lot of courage to choose something different. Sometimes we can feel forced or bullied into making health decisions that don’t feel right and that are based on fear, or a lack of unbiased and up-to-date information. One of the things that I have learned on my health journey, is that only YOU can really know what you need and what will work for you, it is great to get expert advice from those you trust and respect, however when it comes down to it, you are the one that has to live with your choices, you are the one connected to your intuition, to your inner being and you are the one who always wants the best for you and your children, with no hidden agenda.

The time will come, if it hasn’t already, where you are wanting to use the oils for all sorts of things, especially for your kids well-being. Children respond really well to EO’s and they don’t need as much as most adults do. It’s usually a good idea to dilute your chosen essential oil in a carrier oil though, or diffuse it, if in doubt. I have attached a handy information booklet below, so check it out for more guidelines.

Most of us know that a holistic approach to life is the healthiest way to be. I know you care about your children more than just about anything else in the world and like me; you want to minimize hardship, without undue stress or drama. I have had great success using essential oils in my family and so I have compiled a list of my favourite oils for kids here, for you.

  1. Stress Away – This is our go-to oil. My girl has had a history of feeling overwhelmed and this oil calms her straight away! It’s light and sweet and most kids love it.
  2. Joy – Kids feeling a bit grumpy or low? Joy will shift it! This is my daughters absolute FAVOURITE!
  3. Peace & Calming – This has the same effect as stress away, with a slightly deeper scent it’s a great one for Mums and Kids.
  4. Di-Gize – we use this one all the time, I have also been told that Juva-flex is a favourite alternative for many kids.
  5. Purification – Great for bad smells and clearing the space for optimal well-being.
  6. Thieves Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s most popular products. This is the most used oil in our house!
  7. Brainpower – Kids feeling sluggish, or have an exam or important assignment due, this is the one to use!
