A loving nurturing touch of massage on the feet, arms, hands, back, abdomen and legs using the best Young Living essential oils for kids is therapeutic for both the child and parent. A gentle hug, smile or a kiss are forms of connection, bonding between the parent and the child. Aromatherapy is a new approach to emotional well being and healing through the use of essential oils. Oils in aromatherapy have soothing effect on the body, mind and soul.
Babies at six weeks of age can recognize their mother’s scent, hence making them extremely sensitive to any kind of fragrance, pleasant or unpleasant. Soothing and calming essential oils used during the upbringing of your child supports your little one’s health, happiness and well being.
Listed below are my most favorite and for me just some of the best Young Living essential oils for kids and babies that are effective and safe to use:
Lavender oil is an excellent home remedy for headaches, earaches and even insect bites. Lavender oil massage can help to relax a fussy baby and encourage sleep.

Teething can be a difficult experience for parents and little ones. While there are many natural options to ease the pain and bring comfort to your little one, here is one known remedy for teething using German Chamomile and Lavender.
Only 1 drop of Lavender
Only 1 drop of German Chamomile
1 oz of V-6 or coconut carrier oil
Blend these three ingredients together in a clean, empty glass bottle. Put one drop of the blend on your finger and apply on the cheek along the jawline (upper and lower) as well as behind the ears, as many times teething triggers earaches and ear discomfort.
Peace and Calming can be used on situations when children get easily angry or upset. This oil is a favorite of children who do not clearly know how to verbalize anger and resort to tantrums instead. When words cannot pacify your kid, use this oil by rubbing it on the stomach. Emotions evaporate faster with the smell of Peace and Calming. Peace and Calming encourages deep relaxation, promotes a good night’s sleep, calms tension, and uplifts the spirit.
Gentle Baby is a soothing blend of pure essential oils with an aroma that invites a sense of calming for both the mother and baby. It calms and relaxes babies, heals babies’ chapped skin and diaper rash. For moms, this essential oil reduces stress during pregnancy, reduces the appearance of stretch marks, removes wrinkles and regenerates the skin.
A word to parents: Since essential oils are highly concentrated, make sure that they are properly diluted with carrier oils. Improper dilution can result in skin irritation for your little ones. Don’t let your children be alone while using essential oils. For a guide to diluting essential oils for kids and babies, click here.
