- Extra Basic Care Kit - Children - Essential Oils
Aside from the twelve listed above, there are other essential oils that are also very useful to have in your children's basic care kit. I've listed them in order of preference. By this I mean if I had to choose the most useful, the one at the top of the list would come first. The second oil on the list, reading downwards, would be the second most useful, and so on.
