6 Essential Oil diffuser blends for kids that moms love
Kid Friendly Diffuser Recipes
Kids love Essential Oils. I don’t know why, but they are just drawn to them. My girls, even though they are small, love to smell and talk about the different essential oils I have for our family’s use. Recently, I decided to create a list of diffuser recipes that my girls ask for over and over. Some of the essential oil diffuser blends for kids that I list might even remind you of some of your childhood favorite smells!
In this post, I’m going to share our top 6 essential oil diffuser blends for kids, my top suggestion for a kids essential oil diffuser and a few popular essential oils safe for kid use.
Why create essential oil diffuser blends for kids?
Not all essential oils are safe for kids. Especially babies and small kids. For a list of oils to avoid using around small children check out my post- “Are you using essential oils safely?” I even include a free PDF download of my safety cheat sheet.
With safety and fun in mind, I created the below essential oil diffuser blends for kids list. Now we have a go to list of fun, simple essential oil blends. I even feel safe enough to diffuse these blends in my kids essential oil diffusers in their bedrooms.
Speaking of Diffuser for kids room
I get asked a good bit about kids essential oil diffusers. Which ones do I suggest being used?
I’m a huge fan of the Young Living brand of diffusers. For my girls’ rooms I like the Home Diffuser or the Dewdrop Diffuser. Both are made with Medical grade plastic and in our house they have been dropped a number of times and still keep on working. I’m telling you they take a hard lick and keep on diffusing. What is also nice about the Young Living diffusers is they have a 1 year guarantee.
I personally really like the Dewdrop diffuser for diffusing essential oils for baby cough and congestion. The Dewdrop is labeled as a humidifier. I like having a diffuser that can act as a humidifier and as a source of diffusing essential oils that are safe to use around babies with a cold. I’m always mindful to leave their bedroom doors open while diffusing so they are always getting fresh air.
I hope in the future to get my girls one of the Young Living diffusers created for Kids. My girls have surprised me how much they like the Young Living Dino land Diffuser and the Dolphin Reef Diffuser. Maybe one day soon I can get them one!

Once your family is use to diffusing essential oils, have fun and experiment with oils. Come up with your own family favorites.
