While most essential oils are safe to use around children, McClure always recommends avoiding spraying any blends directly at kids. She also adds that it’s a good idea to use this blend in a room with good ventilation, especially if you have young children and/or pets.
As far as storage, keep your blend in a cool, dry place, ideally in an amber-colored glass bottle, to help keep your oils fresh for longer. (Check out our full guide for essential oil storage for more helpful tips!)
McClure adds that if you’re in a pinch and feeling congested, peppermint essential oil on its own can be a wonderful decongestant. Simply take a whiff of the oil for quick relief.
