Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to support the body in healing itself. Oils have become quite popular over the last several years, and for good reason. They are powerhouses for supporting total well-being – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

We use oils every day in our house. I love that my children feel empowered to use the oils for themselves. The following recipe is one that I use most often in our house. My kids roll a dab of this on their wrists every morning before school.

Essential Oil Recipe for Emotional Balance and Immune Support

Essential Oil Recipe for Emotional Balance & Immune Support  {Kid Safe}

*Note: Essential oils are powerful. They need to be diluted, applied sparingly, and kept out of the reach of small children. There are several oils that are not safe for children under 10. This blend only includes oils that are safe for younger children.

7 drops lemon essential oil

3 drops frankincense essential oil

2 drops spruce essential oil

5 drops melaleuca ( tea tree) essential oil

Combine oils in a 10ml roller bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle with a carrier oil. I like to use fractionated coconut oil for this, but use whatever oil suits your family best.

(**Editor’s Note- If you are using this blend on your children, you may want to premix the oils in a separate bottle and then only add 1 to 2 drops per 10 ml of carrier oil to protect their sensitive skin and to not overload their little systems.)

Label your roller bottle. We like to call this blend, “I Am Healthy”. Use as needed. I like to put this on my children’s wrists before school or an outing.

Emotional Benefits

One of the things I love most about essential oils is that they are good for so many things. We aren’t just supporting our physical bodies, but we are supporting our emotional well-being too! Listed below are some of the emotional benefits to each of the oils.

Lemon – The aroma of lemon supports the body in releasing confusion, mental fatigue, lack of focus, lack of joy and energy, guilt. The aroma of lemon inspires joy and assists with learning.

Frankincense – The aroma of frankincense supports the body in releasing abandonment, vulnerability, and disconnection.

Spruce – The aroma of spruce supports the body in releasing instability, mood extremes, exhaustion, depletion, and feeling ungrounded. Spruce is very stabilizing and grounding.

Melaleuca – Also known as “tee tree” oil. The aroma of melaleuca supports the body in releasing codependent relationships, toxicity, and poor boundaries. Melaleuca is empowering and helps a person stand up for themselves and drop feelings of responsibility for other’s problems.
