The very best way to use essential oils for your kids is to make sure you’re using oils (and synergies) developed just for them. You don’t have to guess, because it’s all 100% safe! If you want to get started right away, we’ve already done the hard work for you with our KidSafe® oils selection.

Use Nighty Night or Sweet Slumber to aid with bedtime restlessness.

essential oils just for kidsTo help prevent restlessness, diffuse Nighty Night in your child’s room about 15 minutes before they head to bed. Or, add a couple drops of Sweet Slumber to their KidSafe® Aroma Plush. (True story, I tried this on my son who has the worst time settling down for bed, and it works like a charm!)

Diffuse Calming the Child to help with focus.

Calming the Child can be added to an aromatherapy inhaler or diffuser when your child needs to find some calm, and A+ Attention helps your child stay on-task during homework time.

Help heal owies with Better Than Kisses

  1. Better than Kisses and Calming the Child are two of my favorites! My son always asks for Better than Kisses when he gets an owie (bruise usually) and Calming really gets him to (haha) calm down quickly. I’ll have to try the others too!

    1. That is so sweet Heidi! Those are two of my favorites KidSafe synergies too. I know you will love the rest of the line as well.

  2. So many great tips. I am pretty sure that I use all of these for my kids. They love applies the better than kisses to there boo boos. I love nighty night for before bed. Best kids safe line.

  3. Lots of great tips! I love the kids safe products, they give me peace of mind knowing already that they are safe for my kids. We haven’t tried Better than Kisses or Sweet Slumber. I love nighty night in the diffuser or applied topically for bedtime. This helps my 9 year old fall asleep and stay asleep all night. Calming the Child works great for meltdowns and just in general bad moods that kids get.

  4. At the moment im using relax for my kids cannot wait for my order with sweet slumber and nighty night to arrive.
    We love calm the child and a+ attention

  5. We love using the immune boom and calming the child. Is it safe to put the immune boom on before school and the calming the child at night time? I wasn’t sure about using 2 blends in one day.

  6. I have started diffusing 3 drops of nighty night and 2 drops of calming the child in my daughter’s room, ages 6 and 4. They used to be terrible about getting up several times after I put them to bed but since I started using these in the diffuser they have gotten so so much better! It’s amazing!!!

  7. I am so grateful for sweet slumber. My little one one was having issues with nightmares and struggling to sleep through the night. Well this essential oil has changed the story and the whole experience. Thank you thank you. 🙂

  8. We love to use A+ Attention roll on before we send our child to school. It very helps my child stay on-task during school time.

    At home, we always diffuse A+ Attention for focusing during my child doing their homework.

    it is so great!!
