***Most research found online about babies and essential oils are assuming that you will be using an oil that has synthetic additives and ingredients. In these cases, do heed these warnings if using an essential oil brand that does not offer 100% Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG)* Essential Oils. If using CPTG essential oils, you can be sure to treat your family with confidence knowing that these oils are never tampered with and offered to you in their purest form with the best quality.

Some things to keep in mind:
