7 Safe Options for Essential Oils for Babies

Baby essential oils should be used with caution due to their fragile skin and developing respiratory systems. These seven baby essential oils are safe:

1. Lavender Oil

Lavender oil, which is known for relaxing, can help babies' skin feel better and help them relax.

2. Chamomile Oil

You can dilute gentle chamomile oil and use it to calm fussy babies, ease the pain of chewing, and help them sleep.

3. Diluted Coconut Oil

It is safe to rub babies with coconut oil, and it can help keep their skin moist, but it's important to dilute it the right way.

4. Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca)

Tea tree oil that has been highly dampened should not be used on babies' skin directly because it could make their skin more sensitive.

5. Mandarin Oil

Dilutions of mandarin oil have a mild citrus smell and can be used in a diffuser to make babies feel calm.

6. Frankincense Oil

When diluted correctly, frankincense oil can help make a space more relaxing and help kids relax.

7. Ylang Ylang Oil

A very small amount of diluted ylang-ylang oil can give off a soft floral smell and help you relax.
