Dilution is Key
Kids are small. Their bodies do not need as many drops of oils as adults do. Dilution should be 1/2 - 1/3 less than an adults formula.
A good place to start is on the bottoms of their feet.
If there is any reaction, wipe off with vegetable oil or your carrier oil, NOT water.
Example for kids:
3 drops for 0.5 oz. of carrier oil // (0.5 oz = 3 tsp)
6 drops for 1.0 oz of carrier oil // (1.0 oz = 6 tsp)
