It’s that time of year that parents everywhere either look forward to (points to self) or dread like the plague…. back to school. Either way, you should consider preparing yourselves and your kids for the transition.
This means back to structure, crazy schedules, stressful days, compromised immune systems, spending money on new clothes and supplies, etc etc. By the way, there’s an oil for that! Let’s talk essential oils for back to school.
Parents… Load up on STRESS AWAY essential oil…. Worth every flippin penny (and that’s all I have to say about that *in my Forrest Gump voice*). Mornings may be hectic, afternoons may be crazy and there may be days where it feels like there’s just not enough hours to get everything done… But no matter what, you can be empowered to make the best decisions regarding your health and the health of your family.
Load up on Essential Oils for supporting the immune system. These oils include but are not limited to: Thieves essential oil, Oregano, Thyme, Frankincense (just to name a few). Load up on Ningxia Red because of its unprecedented amount of antioxidants to support the immune system. Eat healthy meals and get adequate sleep. Try to meal prep and plan ahead as much as possible to avoid added stress.
Diffuse the heck out of Peppermint essential oil in the mornings to help everyone wake up and get going.
Diffuse the heck out of Brain Power essential oil, Clarity essential oil or Rosemary essential oil during homework time.
Diffuse the heck out of Lavender, Vetiver or Cedarwood at night to promote a good night’s sleep.
One of the greatest tools I have for myself and the kids is the ability to make essential oil roll ons or use diffuser necklaces to access the benefits of our essential oils all throughout the day no matter where we are.
If your child is very active and struggles with concentration consider a natural alternative such as a Lavender, Cedarwood, Vetiver combination in a roll on that he/she can use throughout the day. You can make an immune boosting blend with a wide variety of oils since they are so effective against the “nasties” and the “coodies”. The beauty of Essential oils is the unlimited recipes you can use and the limitless choices YOU have to take control of your health and your family’s health. It’s truly a beautiful thing. Be empowered. Be healthy. Be oily. Be ready to take this school year on! With essential oils, this can be your best year yet!! Xoxo! Love you all!
