Our Favorite Emotional Oils for Kids

I am 33 years old and still figuring out and working on my own emotions… Imagine how difficult it can be for our kiddos! The first day of school, losing a favorite “lovey,” first night away from home, graduating from high school – no emotion is too small (or from too small a person) to acknowledge. We all feel, and I love how we can support our babies as they grow through every walk and stage of life.

With all that said – it is time to listen up mommas, nannies, grandparents, dads, foster parents, sisters, babysitters and brothers. My boys have been oily babies since day one of their lives and it has helped us ALL so much! Here are some favorites in our house!

Stress Away

The name says it all. I bet this is one of the first emotional oils you used because it is in the starter kit. This is a goody! Our sweet kids are way too prone to the stresses of this world. They are also watching our every move and see/feel our stress as well. It is smart for all of us to sit back and stress less with this amazing oil. It is great on the wrists, temples and neck. I even wear it as a perfume many days, the vanilla lime scent is addicting!

Orange & Lemon

Orange and Lemon are happy oils and help bring peace. They very uplifting when we are feeling down and need that extra pick me up. They are GREAT diffused, applied and mix well with Joy or White Angelica.

White Angelica

This oil is AMAZING! Probably the MOST used in our house. It is a blend made up of 10 oils that helps protect us from the negativity that can creep up during the day. White Angelica is very uplifting and calming to the emotions. It can also help open our hearts. Wear it daily and just watch as your whole attitude about life changes. Truly amazing!

Peace & Calming

This is the first and last oil of the day that my youngest gets. He responds very well to it. Its effects are all in the name. Apply to the chest, back of the neck and bottoms of the feet for a great day!


Did you know that this blend used to be called Love? Yep, it sure did and that is very fitting because it helps to encourage memories of being loved and held. It can also help open up the ability to receive love. Our babies need to be loved on and know they are secure – I love this oil for this! Apply it in a clockwise motion over the heart and smell it deeply!


I have a stubborn one -- strong willed, independent, and very determined! This oil helps calm down those moments when his personality can turn into a tantrum. Sometimes we all just need to take a breath and calm down.

As we asked up top, do you have any family favorites to share? Let us know! And stay tuned for another self-care post next week!

Self-Care Series Part 1: The Feelings Collection Protocol

Temperatures dropping means a lot things when it comes to self-care.

  • Apply Thieves daily. Immune support is key at this time of year. (Now in a roll-on, WHAT??!!)

  • Care for your skin with soothing favorites like Frankincense, Lavender and Helichrysum.

  • Treat yourself to an at home spa experience with shower fizzles or bath bombs.

These are all great. Do them. (And repeat!) But for the first three weeks of our new self-care series, we’re going to focus on emotional support. With the busyness of holidays and gloomy weather approaching, focusing on feelings is key.

Imagine focusing on positive mantras, peaceful feelings and powerful oils for the month leading into the holidays and winter ahead. Intrigued? Here’s a 30 day protocol that goes along with the Feelings Kit. Jaynelle recently shared this encouraging call to intentionally use these emotional oils daily.

The Feelings Kit Protocol

The Feelings Kit Protocol can take as little as 5 minutes a day!

The Feelings Kit Protocol can take as little as 5 minutes a day!

According to Gary Young, “99% of life’s decisions are made from feelings.”

If this is true for you, then you want your feelings in check so you can lead a life guided by good decisions and good emotions. Being aware of your current emotions and learning how to release emotions of the past will lead you to a life of health, fulfillment and joy!

Essential oils are the perfect vehicles to help you in this task because their molecules pass directly to the emotional brain. Our brain is a record of the past and when we can RESOLVE and IDENTIFY issues from our past, watch out! You have just cleared away your emotional baggage and made a way for your highest potential.

Enter the Feelings Collection Protocol. This is a special one and when you do this for 30 days straight, morning and night, you will see a difference, you will feel enthusiastic about life and everything it has to offer.

The How-To

Before each step, smell the oil.

Step 1: Apply Valor on the bottoms of your feet to balance your feelings.

Optional affirmation: I am ready to transform my life

Step 2: Apply Harmony on the energy points of the body to release unpleasant energies.

Optional affirmation: I am open to give and receive love

Step 3: Apply Forgiveness clockwise on the navel to let go of negative emotion.

Optional affirmation: I forgive myself and others for past mistakes

Step 4: Apply Present Time to the wrists and behind your ears.

Optional affirmation: I let go of my past

Step 5: Apply Release over the front and back liver in the circular motion.

Optional affirmation: I release all negativity from my body

Step 6: Apply Inner Child under your nose.

Optional affirmation: My authentic self is enough

Step 7: Apply Valor once again to complete the Feelings Kit experience.

Optional affirmation: I am ready to transform my life

Bonus Step: Apply White Angelica over your shoulders and brush your hands over your arms.

The Why

You can do this whole protocol in 1-2 minutes or you can make it a time of reflection, peace and prayer while you do it. The choice is yours. The most important thing is just USE your oils!! You might have past emotions come up or you might not. The best advice I can give you, though, is if you DO then work through them. Do not stuff the emotions, you will feel so much better on the other side, I promise!

These oils are packaged together in a convenient kit as well: The Feelings Collection $181 (Wholesale). This is definitely the cheapest way to snag these oils.
