Essential Oils for Children and Animals Diploma

When it comes to using essential oils for children and animals, it is important to exercise caution and do your research beforehand. Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind:

For Children:

  • Essential oils should not be used on babies under 6 months of age.
  • Dilution is key: for children over 6 months, essential oils should be heavily diluted with a carrier oil before being applied to the skin or used in a diffuser. The recommended dilution ratio is typically 1-2 drops of essential oil per tablespoon of carrier oil.
  • Some essential oils are not recommended for use with children at all, such as wintergreen and eucalyptus.
  • Always patch test a small area of skin before using a new essential oil, even if it has been heavily diluted.
  • Be aware that certain essential oils may cause respiratory issues or other adverse reactions in some children, so it is important to monitor them closely when introducing a new oil.

For Animals:

  • Essential oils should not be used on or around cats, as they are unable to properly metabolize certain compounds found in many oils.
  • Dogs and horses can generally tolerate certain essential oils when used in small amounts and properly diluted, but it is important to research each oil before use as some may be toxic to certain species.
  • Animals should never be forced to inhale essential oils, and caution should be used when diffusing oils around them to ensure they can leave the area if desired.
  • Essential oils should never be ingested by animals unless under the guidance of a qualified veterinarian.

Overall, it is important to remember that essential oils should be used with care when it comes to children and animals. Always do your research, dilute oils properly, and monitor for any adverse reactions.
