One look at our KidSafe line and you can probably guess that it’s safe for kids. And it is! But there’s a whole lot more that went into creating our KidSafe products. Let’s take a closer look at our process so you can know exactly what you’re getting every time you order one of our KidSafe blends or singles.
Where It All Began
It’s hard to believe we launched our KidSafe line seven years ago! At the time, there were no essential oil products on the market with kids in mind. So our Plant Therapy team realized we could make a huge difference by creating essential oils that are safe and effective for your children. Plus these essential oil blends would specifically address the needs of kids, whether it’s a runny nose, trouble sleeping or issues focusing in school. With that in mind, we went to industry-leading expert Robert Tisserand for help.
What Makes the Cut
First things first. If there was any extra caution with an oil, it simply did not make our KidSafe list. For example, oils high in menthol or 1,8-cineole, like Peppermint or Rosemary, were excluded because they can cause breathing concerns with young children. Ylang Ylang also didn’t make the cut because it’s a potential skin allergen. What you’re left with is a list of essential oils that are completely safe to use on children when properly diluted.
Now for the Blends
Armed with a selection of KidSafe single oils, Robert Tisserand and our Plant Therapy team set out to create a line of effective and safe synergies. For any Plant Therapy blend, we have a list of criteria that it must meet. The blends must work, be safe, smell appealing and be affordable. Any KidSafe blend has the added criteria of needing to be absolutely safe for use with children.
Other Fun Facts
- These are not just diluted versions of “adult” synergies. They are specially formulated to contain essential oils that are gentle, yet effective for children. That way, we’ve taken the risk out of choosing.
- Every KidSafe product is 100% pure, free of any additives, adulterants or dilutions.
- Since they are gentle and don’t come with risks or cautions associated with other essential oils, they’re a great choice for the elderly or anyone looking for a gentler option.
- They’re not just for kids! Adults can absolutely use and enjoy these blends. Not only are they great for beginners, but can be enjoyed by everyone.
