Unless you are under close doctor supervision and following his instructions exactly, please do not use essential oils on children this young.
As society evolved, we learned more to doctors and the prescriptions they provided. This had to have a role in the problems we have today with super-viruses that will not respond to medication and the dependence on drugs that is affecting the entire world.
