What Will You Learn?

Gain the knowledge required to assist children and animals with a wide range of common health conditions using essential oils and your own handcrafted, gentle holistic products.

Following an introduction – in which you’ll explore essential oils and their chemistry – we’ll learn how to use essential oils on babies, toddlers, and even mothers during pregnancy and labour.

The course explores the specific uses of essential oils in assisting ailments of the digestive, respiratory, and nervous systems of children, along with solutions to a range of common first aid scenarios, such as sprains, strains and sunburn.

Next, we’ll look at the use of essential oils in animals, starting with the respiratory, digestive, immunity and emotional health of dogs, followed by the management of behaviour issues and common ailments of cats. We’ll also venture into the scope of essential oil healing for smaller animals and even horses – covering issues such as stress, hoof care and common skin complaints.

The Essential Oils for Children and Animals Diploma Course also guides you in making a range of grooming products for animals, from soap bars and shampoos to ointments and sprays.

Similarly, throughout the course, you’ll learn how to make products for children – starting with simple chest rubs and progressing to more complex formulations like lotions and bath bombs.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of essential oils and their uses
  • Know how to assist with child ailments of the digestive, respiratory, and nervous systems and first aid scenarios
  • Receive guidance on how to use essential oils for dogs, cats, small animals, and horses
  • Learn how to create gentle essential oil products, suitable for children or animals
