Hi! We are so overwhelmed and grateful for the amazing response we have had from our customers from our Bee Well Kids Collection! This week on Instagram and our blog, we'll be giving you some recommendations for use, but first a few necessary disclaimers:
These recipes are not intended to treat, diagnose, or cure any illness. Always consult your health care provider before use beginning a new health support routine and remember to always dilute. We will provide suggestions and some guidelines for dilution, but the ultimate decision of what you use and how much you use with your family is up to you! Check with your up-line and resource books for additional recommendations and information.
There is a wide level of published safety guidelines for using essential oils. Some experts recommend extremely conservative dilution rations of no more than a .25% - 2% dilution even for adults (4 drops of EO in a 10 ml Roller bottle of carrier oil). However, you have probably also seen more liberal recommendations. If you are uncertain how much you should use, always start with less and watch for any sensitivity, you can always add more EO to your blend! (Most experts do not recommend using any essential oils on babies under 6 months.)
For your reference here is a dilution guide. Please refer back to this when making your blends!
For a 1% dilution in a 10 mL roller bottle add 2 drops* of essential oils.
For a 2% dilution in a 10 mL roller bottle, add 4 drops* of essential oils, fill with carrier oil.
For a 3% dilution in a 10 mL roller bottle, add 6 drops* of essential oils, fill with carrier oil.
For a 5% dilution in 10 mL roller bottle, add 10 drops of essential oils, fill with carrier oil.
For a 10% dilution in a 10 mL roller bottle, add 20 drops of essential oils, fill with carrier oil
For a 25% dilution in a 10 mL roller bottle, add 50 drops essential oils (not a recommended amount for children)
*Consider blending all the oils you wish to add first in an empty essential oil or dropper bottle, then add the desired number of drops to your roller bottle and dilute*
