High altitudes are preferred in lavender essential oil and this one is a perfect example of why. The sweet floral scent is fresh and lively and the oil’s key constituents are at very good values. This happens when the distillation is done at high altitude, where it can be done with lower temperatures and pressure.
Baby Friendly Diluted Lavender Essential Oil is best-known for it’s ability to relieve tension and promote a calm, relaxed atmosphere. It’s this benefit that makes me wear it to “high power” meetings, where tension is normally high. The same benefit often has diluted lavender essential oil in my nighttime routine. It’s a great way to let the day’s stress melt away before I settle in for a good night’s sleep.
Aside from the emotional stress-relief, Baby Friendly Diluted Lavender Essential Oil can help stressed skin. We highly suggest a jojoba carrier for a carrier when applying to stressed skin. The combination of the two is awesome for relief.
Do to the versatility of lavender essential oil, it’s a glorious addition to any first-aid kit! Mixed in a spray bottle with Tea Tree, you can have a great spray for those owies that don’t want to be touched.
This Baby Friendly Diluted Lavender Essential Oil is a 0.25% dilution. Do not apply more than 5mL in a single day in order to stay within safe guidelines. An explanation of dilution formulas is found below. Carrier choices are fractionated coconut oil (FCO) or jojoba. FCO, which has no scent, is lighter but is not a “natural oil” due to the process it goes through — however, it’s best for damaged skin because that process also destroys any bacteria. Jojoba is more moisturizing and a natural oil that my skin loves. Jojoba also contains a natural antioxidant (you will notice in many of our safety statements that antioxidants are recommended for certain oils), so it will help the shelf life of oils that should have an antioxidant added to preparations. Jojoba does have a scent, so oils diluted in it will have a slightly different aroma than those diluted in FCO.
Our diluted oils are blended when ordered, assuring that you have no chance of getting old, oxidized oils in your blend.
Baby Friendly Diluted Lavender Essential Oil Safety Info
According to Tisserand and Young, there are no known hazards or contraindications. Lavender essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source: Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (December 2, 2013). AZW3 file Reading the full profile for Baby Friendly Diluted Lavender Essential Oil is highly recommended by your Terrae Oleum staff.
***Note that, for oils that are not sensitizers, Tisserand and Young’s max dilution can be figured as 30/Carrier mL*Max dilution. This is because it’s a max dilution for a single application. Our dilutions are figured at these rates and assuming that you will be using just a few swipes at a time, not an entire container. They’re figured so that you could apply 5mL in a single day and be in the safe range for dermal limits. Even though the dilution strength says something a little higher than what you see in his recommendations, you are using a safe dilution in our pre-diluted oils.***
This dilution strength is for babies from 3 months – 2 years old.
While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use topically, it does have pure essential oil in it and normal safety should be followed:
- Never use them in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). Even diluted, the strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
- Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
- Oils diluted for children should be applied by adults.
- If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
- Do not use diluted oils in a diffuser. You will ruin your diffuser!

Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
