essential oils children

While proper medical care is always advised when needed, there are many situations in the home and family when natural solutions (such as essential oils) can be used as first-line defense.

Plants produce essential oils as a protection against environmental threats. When we use pure essential oils, we receive similar health benefits. Essential oils can penetrate through the cellular membrane to support immune function.

Be careful when researching solutions online, because most information contains ideas used with therapeutic grade oils that have been altered, not certified, or contain synthetic ingredients. Only certified 100% pure oils can be used on children with confidence.
