Using botanicals with infants requires more caution. The tincture doses are much less due to their body weight. Please see your free cheat sheet.
To administer a tincture to an infant, you can add tinctures to a bottle or place in 1/3 cup of water. Use a syringe or straw to make sure your child gets the full amount.
I wouldn’t use essential oils with children until they are 3 months of age. If you choose to, please use caution. Make sure you only use 1 drop per 1 tbs. of oil. They should be very diluted and avoid the eyes, ears, and any openings in the body. Never ingest essential oils with infants. (Unless advised by a professional as they are very estrogenic.)
Home remedies for a cough with toddlers
Toddlers are a little easier, as they love anything new and fun. I would add tinctures to their Sippy cup, use a syringe, or sip out of a fun cup with a straw.
When using botanicals and homeopathy with children it is very important you’re choosing the right herb (or homeopathic treatment) and correct dosing for their symptoms. With a combined effort of diet, teas, and rest your child will be able to become resilient through the years.
