      Oh, you must be soooo tired! Poor little guy. Yes, frankincense is safe for babies. I have used frankincense in a diffuser with my little one. The combo that works best for my son is 5 drops lavender & 5 drops of Peace & Calming (a citrus & patchouli mix) in a diffuser. I turn it on about 10-15 minutes before bed time then turn it off when he goes to sleep (but you can let it keep running if desired). You can also mix it with a carrier oil and put it on his feet.
