In brief: Depends on the child

If a child has asthma, strong scents can trigger symptoms.
Also, some children have allergies to certain chemicals.

In brief: Look On Can

I'm sure that there are risks if a large amount is inhaled all at once or if a small amount is inhaled every single day, and some asthmatics can have an asthma attack triggered by strong smells, but specific toxicity to normal use is rare.
