Chem-free Kids

Harmful ingredients in commercial products have been linked to improper eye development in children, as well as to autism, ADD/ADHD, early-onset puberty, skin disorders, cancer and more. Choosing chemical-free personal care and cleaning products like those available through Young Living empowers the health of your whole family, and is kind to our Planet.


Ace Students

Place 10 drops of Lemon oil and 2 drops of Peppermint oil in the diffuser while studying. Drink 60ml of NingXia Red a day (can add a drop of Orange, Tangerine or Lemon oil for added flavour). Put a drop of Brain Power oil at the top of the neck daily.

Camping Survival Kit

Drink 60ml of NingXia Red each day. Apply Deep Relief Roll-on or a few drops of Aroma Siez or Cool Azul oil blend onto tired muscles. Put a drop of Cedarwood or Lavender oil under feet or on the pillow for a restful night’s sleep. Rub a few drops of Purification oil blend onto exposed skin for an annoyance-free outdoor adventure!


Career Decisions

Diffuse 10 to 15 drops of Clarity oil blend, or sniff from the bottle. Another great diffuser combo is 10 drops of Magnify your Purpose oil blend and 5 drops of Orange oil.



Apply a drop of Peppermint oil under each foot, and reapply hourly.


Coping with Change

Let’s face it, change is a part of life. We move homes, we move schools. We lose loved ones, parents separate, new partners come on the scene. When your family is faced with deep-seated change, add 5 to 15 drops of Transformation oil to the diffuser, to assist all family members including pets to adjust to their new environments.

Crying Kids

Of course you have your normal “go-to” oils for soothing emotional upsets. These would be Peace & Calming, Valor, Lavender or Stress Away oil. Apply 1 to 2 drops of any of these oils to your child’s chest, back or feet, or put 5 to 10 drops to your oil diffuser. However, Grounding oil blend is excellent for pulling children and adults out of an emotional release or temper tantrum. Once the emotions have settled, add a drop of Joy or Inner Child oil to the chest to uplift.

Caution: Peace & Calming, Stress-Away, Joy and Inner Child oil are photosensitive. Apply to skin that won’t be exposed to UV light for 24 hours.

Deep Sleep

Apply a drop of Cedarwood or Lavender oil under the nose, or on each side of the pillow. Alternatively, put a drop in the palms, cup lightly over the nose, and inhale. Diffuse Peace & Calming, Lavender or Valor, or apply 1 drop of RutaVaLa oil blend and 3 drops of Roman Chamomile oil to the back of the neck before sleep.

Exam Time

Our mind has a unique filing system, which links smells to memories. You can use this to your child’s advantage during test time. Diffuse oils while your child is studying – a good combination is 10 drops of Lemon oil and 2 drops of Peppermint oil. Lemon is great for concentration, whilst Peppermint oil helps us stay alert. Then have your child smell these oils before (or during) their exam, to help them with their recall.

Testimonial: I add 10 drops of Peppermint oil to my 16 year old son’s diffuser when he studies, and a drop on his wrist before exams. In one exam he had a mental blank. He inhaled the Peppermint oil from his wrist, and immediately remembered the answer. Needless to say, he blitzed his exams! – Clare Townsend (NSW)

Fabulously Healthy

Isn’t that every parent’s dream – to have children who are well balanced and vibrantly healthy? That’s becoming more and more difficult in our toxin-riddled world, which is why NingXia Red should be your “go-to” for health. It’s a delicious, whole food drink that is soooooo good for your entire family (even your furry and feathered children)! 60ml is equivalent in biological activity to 118 heads of broccoli, 200 oranges, or 45,628 almonds, so it’s like a whole fridge/freezer full of fruit and vegie power in a single serve.

Most parents give their children 30 to 60ml daily. Add a drop of Orange or Tangerine oil for a more “orangy” flavour. You can even make your own NingXia Red popsicles!!!

For extra protection during winter, mix 1 drop of Thieves oil with 4 drops of carrier oil such as coconut or Young Living’s V6 oil, and apply this under your child’s feet daily (age 18 months to 5 years) or put a drop or two of Thieves oil neat under each foot (age 6 upwards).

Healthy Teeth

Your kids will love the taste of Young Living’s KidScents Toothpaste – it has no added nasties, is completely safe for your child, and great for their teeth too!


Spritz with a mix of 10 drops each of Lavender, Lemon and Orange oil in 50ml of filtered water, or diffuse 10 to 15 drops of Harmony, Inner Child or Joy oil blend.


Night Time Ritual

This is such a beautiful way to create daily connection and quality time with your child, regardless of their age. It’s even a great ritual to do with your partner! And because it’s so calming, it can also be done before any stressful event, such as a performance or exam. Perform a “Valor Balance” – put 1 to 3 drops of Valor oil under each foot, and hold for 5 to 10 minutes with your right hand under your child’s right foot, and your left hand under their left foot.

Nightmares or Night Fears

Apply a drop of Dream Catcher oil blend under each big toe before sleep – amazing!!!! You can also diffuse White Angelica oil blend, or apply to the mattress.

Night Light

Young Living’s KidScents diffusers provide a great night-light for the bedroom as well as being a wonderful diffuser for your essential oils. Choose between a Coral Reef or Dinosaur design.

Radiant, Healthy Skin

Cleanse with Young Living’s ART Gentle Cleanser or Orange Blossom Facial Wash. Take one Longevity Softgel per day, and drink 60ml of NingXia Red daily. Reduce sugar intake, and exercise regularly.

Road Trips

Into 5ml of carrier oil (eg. coconut or V6 oil), mix 5 drops of AromaEase oil blend & 5 drops of Copaiba oil. Rub a few drops onto your child’s chest before long car rides, or put a drop of each oil onto your glitterbug diffuser (see below), and attach to the car’s air vents. For arguments and conflict during road trips, apply a drop of Harmony oil to yourself, and watch it work its magic! Caution: Harmony oil is photosensitive – apply to skin which will be protected from UV light for 24 hours.

Secret Women’s Business

Apply 4 drops of Progessence (Phyto) Plus oil blend to the throat, wrists or feet daily, or apply a few drops of Dragon Time oil blend to the belly during menstruation.


Wear 1 drop of Believe oil blend on the wrists, and 1 drop of Sensation or Gratitude oil blend on the heart.

 Separation Upset & Conflict

Put a drop or two of Harmony oil blend under your child’s feet or on their chest, or diffuse 5 to 15 drops. This is great for first day at a new school, or for any conflict or upset in the home. Parents have shared that there are a lot fewer arguments in the house when they diffuse Harmony oil!

Shower Time

Young Living’s KidScents Shampoo and Bath & Shower Gel are soooo divine. Both are free of all nasties, and the Bath Gel has Cedarwood and Geranium oil in it – superb for the skin of both children and adults!  Tip: To keep your child’s scalp super healthy and their hair shining, add a couple of drops of Lavender oil into the shampoo before use.


Drink 60ml of NingXia Red a day. Apply Cool Azul Sports Gel, Deep Relief Roll-on or Aroma Siez oil blend onto tired muscles after exercise. Put a drop of Peppermint oil in juice or on the tongue for an energy boost. Enhance fitness with Young Living’s Sulfurzyme and BLM (or AgilEase).

Supersonic Kids

You know, the kids who have so much energy they never want to sit still? Add 3 to 6 drops each of Vetiver, Cedarwood and Lavender oil to your diffuser. Alternatively, place a drop of Cedarwood oil on the back of the head and thumbs, a couple of drops of Valor oil up the spine, and a drop of Vetiver oil onto each big toe. Vetiver is a very thick oil. You may need to remove the stopper from the bottle and carefully pour.

The Winning Edge

Add a drop or two of Peppermint oil to 60ml of NingXia Red, and use oils such as Highest Potential, Envision and Believe.

Chem-Free Fun

Make your own Glitterbug Car Diffuser

Stick glitter and other fun things like goobly eyes onto a wooden peg. Add 2 drops of your favourite essential oil. Clip onto your car’s air vents for a simple, easy-to-use car diffuser.

Make your own Healthy Play Dough

Place 2 cups of cornflour into a large bowl. Add 1 cup of Young Living’s KidScents body lotion and a few drops of Lavender oil, and mix with clean hands until it is smooth and holds together. Adjust the consistency by adding more lotion or corn starch. Roll it out, cut into shapes with a cookie cutter, or create shapes. Store in an airtight container.
