The doTERRA kids’ collection – gentle, kid-friendly blends!

dōTERRA’s outdone themselves with this adorable kids’ kit!

Prediluted, simple rollerball blends that have names kids will easily remember and enjoy using.

This collection is a complete and ready-made “whole body” essential oil toolbox to empower parents and children alike.

Their silicone caps with carabiners let kids take them anywhere, and the flashcard set and easy names help kids to choose what they need in the moment.

Six oil blends to empower kids to take charge of their body, mind, and heart!

The set comes with a zip-up carrying case and six oil blends – two for the mind, two for the body, and two for the heart/emotions.

They’re named Thinker, Calmer, Stronger, Rescuer, Steady, and Brave.

  • Body Blends: Stronger contains Frankincense and Rose, and acts like a milder version of OnGuardwhile Rescuer acts like a gentle version of Deep Blue – two of dōTERRA’s best-selling products.
  • Heart Blends:  Brave smells like orange Skittles, and is wonderful for big emotions and even traumatic events. Steady is a great oil for calming nervous and anxious feelings, and is very soothing for overactive minds.
  • Mind Blends: Thinker is a great blend for focus and attention span, while Calmer is the “go to sleep” oil blend (in our house, at least)!

My kids LOVE that they finally have their own set of dōTERRA oils for all their needs!

You can purchase the entire set NOW, or each of the single oils will be available December 3rd:
