These KidSafe oils and synergies provide tremendous benefits, not only for children, but for the entire family, and are also a great choice for essential oil beginners.

Some of Plant Therapy’s KidSafe synergies include A+ Attention, Calming The Child, Germ Destroyer, Immune Boom, Tension Tamer, and many more. Additional products include pre-diluted roll-ons, unique aroma plushes, and dozens of 100% pure undiluted single essential oils.
