- This blend is safe to use topically as long as it is diluted first.
- My family and I use this regularly, including my now 8 year old daughter, Journey, who has been using this blend since she was 4 years old. She has very sensitive skin and has never had a negative reaction to this blend. Having said this, I would still do a skin patch test on your child to be sure there is no irritation or harm.
