The Kids Oil Collection is cute with colorful labels adorned with instructional graphics for children to understand the various usages. It is not something an adult would see and think would be intended for them.
With all that said, I love the Kids Collection for myself. Grown-ups are missing out in bypassing these products for their daily mind and body support. So, why would an adult want to use something designed for children?
For those who are unfamiliar with these blends, the Kids Oil Collection is simply the top oil blends from doTERRA such as Deep Blue, Balance, Serenity, In Tune, etc. reformulated to not contain any hot (think dilution required) oils to avoid skin sensitivity issues. Best practices with essential oils require dilution with certain oils for children or those with sensitive skin.
The Kids Oil Collection has done that for you- no hot oils and pre-diluted. They come in 10mL roller bottles, so they are literally ready to roll on and convenient for purse, suitcase, briefcase, backpack, etc. When using essential oils to support the physical and emotional health of children, worrying about dilution ratios and making separate roller bottles can become a cumbersome affair. Not anymore!
When this collection was released, I bought a few for Henry and was pleased with the results. I was under the impression they were weaker than the other oil blends which made them perfect for children, but not suitable for adults. Not so!
Let me introduce you to the line-up.
Thinker is the focus blend, which is the counterpart to the In Tune focus blend. In Tune has a rich and spicy aroma while Thinker provides the same support in a lighter, minty form with Vetiver, Peppermint, Clementine, and Rosemary. Some people prefer Thinker over In Tune simple because of smell preferences.
For digestive support, use Tamer. Instead of DigestZen with its Fennel aroma, go with Tamer which has a powerful combination of Spearmint, Peppermint, and Ginger which provide quick and soothing relief for all things digestive.
Instead of Balance, there is Steady. These two are the grounding blends for times of stress and anxious thoughts. Balance is a universal crowd-pleaser. Steady has a similar aroma with tree oils, Coriander, and Magnolia, and is just as effective.
For support with calming the mind for sleep, Calmer delivers. Serenity is a dreamy blend, but Calmer is a milder version still containing the soothing superstars Lavender and Roman Chamomile, among others. Apply 3o minutes before lights out and enjoy!
Instead of Deep Blue for aches and pains, there is Rescuer. Deep Blue is a powerhouse blend that is highly aromatic. Rescuer tones it down with Copaiba, Lavender, and Spearmint which is a lighter aroma with just as strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Instead of On Guard, go with Stronger. For some folks, the Clove in On Guard is too strong of a smell. Stronger provides the same immune support with the more subtle aroma of Cedarwood, Litsea, Frankincense, and Rose. I use Stronger as my daily perfume.
Brave, the courage blend, is a gem- a stand alone oil blend for emotional support. The combination of citrus, florals, and just a hint of cinnamon provide a pleasant, uplifting aroma that promotes positivity and calm. Many people use Brave as a perfume.
Another thought to consider is that some of doTERRA’s most popular blends, such as Balance and Serenity, do not come in pre-diluted roller bottles. The Kids Collection fills that need for convenience and portability, all the while, covering the bases for both mind and body support for children and adults alike.
