Safely Diffusing Essential Oils Around Your Baby

As a parent, you want to create a soothing and calming environment for your baby. At Delune, we often get questions from our clients about using essential oils around their little ones. One such question is: 'Is it ok to diffuse essential oils around my baby?' We're here to provide you with some guidance on how to safely enjoy the benefits of essential oils while keeping your baby's well-being in mind.

Top Tips for Safely Diffusing Essential Oils Around Your Baby

Diffusing essential oils can pose a risk to babies and young children, but with some care, you can still enjoy the aroma and benefits of essential oil diffusion. Here are our top tips:

1. Ensure the space is well ventilated

Make sure the room has proper air circulation to prevent the concentration of essential oils from becoming too strong for your baby's delicate respiratory system.

2. Place the diffuser well away from the baby

Keep the diffuser on the opposite side of the room, ensuring your baby isn't directly exposed to the essential oil vapors.

3. Use lower quantities of essential oil

Use at least half the recommended amount of essential oil for your diffuser to create a milder scent that's suitable for your baby.

4. Choose gentle essential oils

Opt for low irritant, gentle essential oils such as mandarin, sweet orange, and lavender when diffusing around your baby.

5. Don't diffuse continuously

Allow your diffuser to run for 30-60 minutes, then switch it off for the same amount of time. Many modern diffusers have built-in timers for this purpose.

Consider Alternatives for Personal Aromatherapy

If you're using essential oils primarily for your own well-being, consider using a personal aroma-inhaler or roll-on instead. This way, you can still enjoy the benefits of your favorite Delune Pure Essential Oils without exposing your baby to potential risks.

By following these guidelines, you can create a safe and comforting space for both you and your baby, while still enjoying the wonderful world of aromatherapy.
