From junior's first day at kindergarten to your daughter's senior year at college, back to school time brings together mixed emotions for parents and students alike. Many people think about focus issues when it comes to using Essential Oils but there are so many other ways that EOs can help with back to school time. Here are 10 great reasons why EOs should be in your back to school arsenal.

 

Always practice safety when using Essential Oils (EOs), especially with young children. EOs are extremely concentrated and when used incorrectly, can have negative effects on kids. General safety recommendations include diffusing oils, not using on or near the face, and always pairing with a carrier oil when using directly on the skin. Also, when using on the skin, be sure to do a patch test and STOP all use if any kind of discomfort occurs.

 

Please note: Each section will include several options. This is to give you ideas based on your preference of oils, and which oils you currently have and use. The options are NOT meant to be used all at once. At the end of the article, we’ll share resources and discuss diffusers and how to make a roller.

 

Good Night’s Sleep

They key to anyone having a successful day begins with a good night’s sleep. Here are several options:

  • Diffuse Lavender and/or Roman Chamomile in the bedroom.
  • Diffuse Dream Catcher™
  • Roll Lavender and/or Roman Chamomile on the bottom of your child’s feet.
  • Add 5 drops of Lavender or Roman Chamomile to the bath.

 

Rise and Shine

Waking up is one of the most difficult times for a kid, regardless of age!

  • Diffuse Orange and/or Citrus Fresh.
  • Diffuse Peppermint.
  • Add 3 drops of Orange or Citrus Fresh to the floor of the shower before turning it on.

 

Focus and Memory

This one is the mother-load! So many kids these days have focus problems, including ADHD.

  • Diffuse Rosemary or Peppermint or Lemon.
  • Diffuse Brain Power™ – it is a blend of essential oils high in sesquiterpenes to promote a sense of clarity and focus when used aromatically.
  • Diffuse Clarity™ for an aroma that invites a sense of clarity and alertness.
  • For bigger attention issues (ie ADHD) – diffuse Cedarwood + Bergamot + Vetiver. (side note – I use a dropper for the Vetiver since it is so thick)
  • Wear a diffuser necklace or bracelet to school with your favorite oils, or add it to a key chain or backpack if your child doesn’t want to wear it.

 

Stress

Even the most easy-going kids get stress about school. There are tests, sports tryouts and games, concerts, SAT’s, and first days!

  • Diffuse Lavender and/or Roman Chamomile.
  • Diffuse Clary Sage.
  • Diffuse Stress Away™ for a combination relaxing and comforting.
  • Diffuse Peace & Calming® to create a relaxing environment.

 

Decision Making

From childhood to college, good decision making is a skill which our kids will learn, fail, and learn again. Whether it’s sharing toys, driving a car or dating, the stakes become much higher for good decision making as your child ages.

  • Diffuse Common Sense™ to enhance rational decision-making abilities leading to increased wellness, purpose, and abundance.
  • Wear a diffuser necklace or bracelet to school with your favorite oils, or add it to a keychain or backpack if your child doesn’t want to wear it.

 

 

Homework

Homework time is my favorite time of day! Said no mother. EVER.

  • Diffuse Brain Power™ – it is a blend of essential oils high in sesquiterpenes to promote a sense of clarity and focus when used aromatically.
  • Diffuse En-R-Gee blend

 

Immune Support

It seems like kids get sick like it’s their job! Help to protect their immune system with these oils:

  • Diffuse Thieves or use on a roller ball on the feet.
  • Diffuse Purification or use on a roller ball on the feet.
  • During cold and flu season, use the oils in a diffuser necklace, bracelet, or on a key ring.

 

Bullying

Whether its in person or online, bullying is difficult for any child to endure. While there are many other resources to help, these are the most recommended oils:

  • Diffuse Forgiveness™ blend.
  • Diffuse Transformation™ blend to help replace negative beliefs with uplifting thoughts.
  • Diffuse Trauma Life™ blend to help offer support during difficult emotional exploration.
  • Diffuse White Angelica™ to help promote feelings of protection and security.
  • Wear a diffuser necklace or bracelet to school with your favorite oils, or add it to a key chain or backpack if your child doesn’t want to wear it.

 

Confidence

Some kids need a little boost of self-confidence.

  • Diffuse Valor® blend.
  • Wear a diffuser necklace or bracelet to school with your favorite oils, or add it to a key chain or backpack if your child doesn’t want to wear it.

 

Transitions

Your child starts a new school due to a move or change in grade. You are divorced and your child is back and forth between homes. And then there is puberty. And college. The only thing constant in life is change, and transitions are a part of life and learning.

  • Diffuse Into the Future™ is an inspirational blend of essential oils that creates an invigorating aromatic companion as you look toward your life’s goals and dreams.
  • Diffuse Oola®** Grow™ essential oil blend gives you courage to focus on the task at hand and helps you move toward positive advancement and progression.

 

And because kids are kids… whether it’s the stench from their locker, backpack, or soccer cleats.. a little Purification to the rescue!

 

Resources

Essential Oils – Always purchase Essential Oils from a reputable company.

Roller Ball – Take a roller ball, fill it up almost to the top with a carrier oil, and then add 1-2 drops of EO.

Diffusers – There are many different styles of diffusers. All you need to do is fill it to the fill line with water, and add 5-10 drops of your favorite oil/s.

Diffuser necklace/bracelet/etc – I love the work by Bella Terra Studio based out of Modesto, CA. The owner lost her husband to cancer, and I’m inspired by all of the time and effort she puts into her craft.
