What are
essential oils?

Beginning with the ancient Egyptians, essential oils are one of the oldest forms of natural medicine. Across many cultures they have used essential oils to create remedies from pregnancy, birth and beyond to support physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

What is so exciting now is that we have the science to better understand how essential oils work in the body and a growing evidence base to prove their therapeutic benefits.

Essential oils offer safe, natural and empowering tools to help us and our children connect to nature, ease everyday challenges and ailments and connect us back to our bodies.

How to do they work?

Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your brain called the limbic system. 

The Limbic system plays a major role in how we process our emotions, behaviours and long-term memory. This explains why familiar smells can trigger memories and the associated feelings, for example the smell of fresh cut grass may evoke feelings of freedom and the excitement of summer. 

Essential oils can not only affect how we feel but also, when applied topically on our skin, can enter our bloodstream within 30 seconds! They have been proven by science to work on a cellular level which means they can support deep healing in a variety of ways.

Our Senses

I have always been fascinated by all things sensory from my background as a specialist OT in the NHS. How we experience the world through our senses is completely unique to us, just like our finger-print. What kinds of sensory experiences we are drawn to or avoid can help us to understand how we tick and what we need to feel calm, regulated and alert to meet the challenges we face in day to day life.



Rigorous testing from both dōTERRA and third parties ensure that the oils are their most tested, trusted and of the highest-grade on the market.

dōTERRA have set their own standards to ensure this; 

CPTG certified pure tested grade which allows them to guarantee that their essential oils are 100% pure, no fillers, synthetics or harmful contaminants! This is so important when using essential oils with our little ones and is why it is the only essential oils I recommend

A few simple ways to use essential oils every day:

As a therapist, using essential oils are such simple, playful and empowering tools that support children to learn about how they feel and what they need. Developing body awareness, self-care and self-regulation are fundamental building blocks to emotional health and self-esteem.

Dilution Guide

(in 2 tsp of carrier oil or 10ml roller bottle use the following drops)

Babies (over 6 months)

Young children (3+)

Older children



Roots & Blooms tips:

Remember this is only a guide and particularly for children, pregnant or older people, extra care with dilution is important. Using small amounts several times a day is better than using a large amount once a day. Fractionated coconut oil is a gentle carrier for young skin. Wipe off with carrier oil if sensitivity occurs.  Keep essential oils out of reach of children so they cannot use them unsupervised. Always speak to your healthcare provider if you or your child are on medication to check for any contraindications. 

Roots & Blooms only recommends DōTERRA for safety, purity and effectiveness.

Here is a super helpful guide on using essential oils in pregnancy, with babies and children.

Ways to use essential oils with children


  • A cold mist diffuser can be a safe and gentle way to use essential oils with little ones.
  • You can use them in the house, bedroom, nursery/school or car
  • You could also put a few drops on a pillow, tissue or make your own spray bottles


  • It’s important to dilute essential oils in a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil which is gentle on young skin and supports absorption.
  • Applying on the soles of feet and along the spine is great place to apply oils topically
  • You can make your own roller bottles based on need/smell preference or use pre-made diluted roller bottles such as the dōTERRA Kids Collection or touch collection

Safety tips

  • Keep out of ears, eyes, nose and broken skin
  • Be aware of photosensitivity when using citrus oils – avoid UV light for 12 hours when using citrus oils on the skin
  • We all have different sensitivities so always observe how your child responds to the oil, take it slow and dilute further if needed.
  • Allow your intuition to guide you and always speak to your healthcare provider if you or your child are on medication to check for any contraindications.
  • Children with sensory sensitivities may need extra dilution and a less is more approach – try using a toothpick to take out a little bit of the oil from the bottle to explore together what they are drawn to

Pre-diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil, these essential oil blends are gentle enough for children of all ages. Each of these kid-friendly blends is formulated with children in mind—their fragrance preferences, emotional needs, and most common challenges in their day to day. The colour-coded labels and roll-on tops make application easy and fun. 

With adult support, your child can learn to safely apply these essential oil blends to their tummy, hands, head, and heart. We love this Kids collection as they teach children important life skills, how to listen to their bodies, identify what they need and get comfort and soothing through the oils.
