Have you ever taken a look at a KidSafe blend and wondered whether it would be okay to use it for yourself? Well, you’re in great company, because it’s one of the most common questions we get asked here at Plant Therapy. Navigating the world of aromatherapy can be confusing, but at Plant Therapy, it doesn’t have to be! Despite the primary colors, cutesy names, and kid-friendly fonts, our KidSafe blends might be a great option for you, no matter how old you are.
What’s the Purpose of KidSafe?
Our KidSafe essential oil blends were created by our team of aromatherapists to target common issues parents face with their kids aged 2 years old and up. We used only 100% pure, undiluted essential oils that have been determined by aromatherapy professionals to be gentle and safe enough for children. If you are interested in learning more about nitty-gritty that goes into creating a KidSafe blend, check out this post.
Is KidSafe Good for Adults?
The real question is… what makes any essential oil or blend good for adults? Just because our KidSafe blends were created for common issues parents face with their children doesn’t mean adults don’t face some of those same issues. It also doesn’t mean that essential oils magically work better for 2-year-olds than they would a 40-year-old. Here’s the thing… essential oils don’t discriminate! The oils that make up our KidSafe blends are the same oils that you use every day for other issues. They just don’t have essential oils that are known to have additional cautions or risks. Because the oils we do use are full-strength undiluted essential oils, they carry the same awesome properties no matter who they’re used with. That’s why KidSafe blends will work just as well for you as they do our little ones.
Why Choose KidSafe?
Aromatherapy as a whole is a personal journey that should be tailored to your individual needs and preferences. Everyone has different preferences when it comes to smell, just as everyone has different conditions that need to be addressed. Whether it be skin conditions, allergies, or more serious health conditions, they’re all unique to the individual. It’s these differences that may make a KidSafe blend more appealing or beneficial. For those who need some respiratory support but don’t like the green scent of Eucalyptus might prefer the clean, crisp smell of Sniffle Stopper instead of Respir Aid. For those who are elderly and have skin that tends to be more sensitive and gentle, Sore No More may be a better option than Rapid Relief. It’s all a matter of personal preference and personal need.
The most important thing to remember is that essential oils are non-discriminatory and fluid. They don’t change depending on how old you are. They don’t care whether you’re male or female. While one thing might work for one person, it may not work for another, and that’s okay. That’s what makes essential oils great. If you are an adult who prefers the oils in a KidSafe blend, then use that blend. It’ll still provide the same great benefits as the non-KidSafe alternative, and you’ll be happier using it.
PT’s Favorite KidSafe Blends for Adults
My favorite KidSafe blend is Hello Sunshine! I like to diffuse it on days I need extra motivation to get things done and it’s an added bonus because citrus smells are my go-to!

One of my personal favorite Kidsafe blends is Shield Me. I use this when I go camping and when I go hiking outdoors. It smells much better than a lot of bug sprays! I love that it’s natural and made with clean ingredients.
