Is it safe to use doterra on guard oil whole breastfeeding? My baby is one month old if that makes a difference.

How do you use this oil, topically or ingested?

It depends on what is in the blend. Are you using it to kill germs, or taking it internally?

What are the EOs that it blends?
Some EOs are GREAT while nursing. Some are a no-no. Be sure to properly dilute any oils you do apply.

Eucalyptus shouldn't be used on children under 2 either. I would diffuse or avoid it, also. In fact, I wouldn't even diffuse eucalyptus around a baby that young, may cause breathing problems. It's too strong. 

Quoting AromaDrops33:


It has wild orange, clove bud, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus, rosemary. I posted that she should diffuse it because cinnamon bark needs to be heavily diluted to use on children, and it's dangerous for breast feeding or pregnant woman

Your instructor says Eucalyptus oil is ok for children under 2?! Woah, nelly! No concerns of the toxicity? Holy moly! All the books I've read says that 4-5ml even in a diffuser is dangerous. 0.o 

Quoting AromaDrops33:

Sorry, my fault.....I read the post wrong. She can start diffusing this when her baby is 3 months or older using half a dose (1-2 drops). Just confirmed it with my aromatherapy teacher :)

Diffusing a small amount for no more than an hour is not harmful, but yes if your using a diffuser with 5 drops in it, then that's not the smartest of ideas.
