Essential Oils for Children
Using essential oils has been an integral part of my family’s happiness and well-being in times of stress or inability to self-regulate as well as in our day to day routine. My daughter has learned which oils can change how she feels, and my son knows which oils will improve clarity in his thinking. At Tranquil Little One, I bring my experience and research to help your family explore if essential oils can help you.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are a natural aromatic compound found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. While many are used for their pleasing and soothing aromas alone, most essential oils (when diluted properly if needed) can be applied topically on the skin to provide lasting benefits to the body.
Are they safe?
Yes, essential oils are natural and are considered safe when used properly. But it’s important to use quality grade essential oils. Not all essential oils sold in stores are 100% pure and they may even contain synthetic additives and fillers. This is why I recommend doTerra essential oils. To learn more about why Tranquil Little One utilizes doTERRA essential oils, click here for more information on the Certified Pure Tested Grade quality of their product.
How can we use them?
Tranquil Little One has developed a list of oils and special blends to help children feel their best, depending on their mood and the situation - whether it’s getting focused, calming down, or simply improving the mood. Essential oils can be used in room sprays, nasal inhalers, diffusers, and rollers (for skin application). We’ll create a safe and easy daily plan so that your family can start to enjoy the benefits of using essential oils.
Settle the mind and improve focus with these

Whether it’s getting out of bed in the morning, focusing on schoolwork, or settling down for the day, sometimes our children need a little help. Essential oils can be an excellent and easy tool to use with your family as part of their self-regulation and coping strategies.
All it takes is a little education to understand how and why essential oils help influence the limbic system, the part of the brain involved in behavioral and emotional responses. The right blends can either improve focus, boost energy, uplift mood or soothe and calm the mind. Once you’ve got the know-how, with a few simple recipes, you’ll have a quick 5-minute trick to use anytime you need to change the energy and settle the mood.
