2. EDT (Eau De toilette) : Compared to EDP’s these contain relatively lower concentrations of pure essential oils, stay for lesser hours compared to the EDP’s and are relatively easy on the pockets. These are still a better and safer option for kids as compared to the deodorants.

3. Deodorants: Contain the least amount of essential oils and stay for a minimal period of time 2-3 hours. While they are cheap, these are hazardous for children with regards to both its ingredients and the aerosol containers that they come in.
