The following is an attempt to collect a list of essential oils and carrier oils which are safe for children over the age of 6 years old. There is a lot of conflicting information about oils for children from the ages of 6 months to 6 years old. As a result, I have chosen not to cover children in that age range. (sorry..)   For children who are 6 years or older, the following oils seem to be considered appropiate by most sources. It must be said that any essential oil always needs to be diluted before using it on children!. Most sources that I have seen suggest using ¼ to ½ the amount of essential oil that an adult would use diluted in a carrier oil.
