There are few things more rewarding than seeing your children grow up and value their health in a way you’ve tried to teach them. Teaching your family members the benefits of natural essential oils is a great way to start them off right and put them in control of their overall wellness.
Because essential oils are all-natural, they are safe for any age, and even when pregnant or nursing.
The topical application of essential oils is one of the most popular uses and has many benefits. However, because essential oils are highly concentrated and potent, it’s important to understand how to dilute when necessary. A good rule of thumb is to use less rather than more.
Here is a guide for topical use for your teenagers and young adult children:
Neat: No dilution is needed
Sensitive: 5-10 drops carrier to 1 drop essential oil
Recommended: Do not apply more than 3-5 times throughout the day. Up to 4-10 drops per application.
