Start the school year off the right way with dōTERRA Essential Oils
It’s just about that time again. Summer goes by so dang fast, doesn’t it?
Did you ever stop and think about how you can start to prepare your child’s body for school? Going from a safe home environment to a new class, new friends, new teachers, and new school is HARD on children. It’s a lot of NEW and lots of children do not do good with a lot of new. Think twice when you are filling up your shopping cart with back to school supplies this season, and keep doTERRA essential oils on your mind!
In case you draw a blank, I wanted to provide a list of essential oils that you can use to assist your child in settling into their new school environment! This doesn’t just go for the young school goers, everyone including teachers, college students, and administration! We all need a little help adjusting once we return to school!
Top 5 dōTERRA Essential Oils for Back to School:
Peppermint & Wild Orange Essential Oil
This is a great blend to help your kids wake-up. They now have an alarm clock to wake up to, or you disturbing their slumber by turning on the light and singing, “school days, school days…good ole fashion rule days.” Put an essential oil diffuser in your kitchen and diffuse this “wake-up blend” while they are eating breakfast. Or you can put this blend in a roll-on bottle and roll it on their wrists and back of neck while you are “nicely” waking them up.
Rosemary Essential Oil
Did you know rosemary can make you smarter? Rosemary is known to improve brain performance and mood. I recommend adding a drop or two to your children’s shampoo and using it to wash their hair, or rubbing a drop through their hair while they are eating breakfast before heading to school. You can, also, diffuse this oil before the kids leave for school or when they come home and work on homework.
In Tune “Focus” Blend by dōTERRA
The focus blend contains oils that have been studied and used traditionally for their abilities to promote calmness, focus and a balanced state of mind. Many of these oils contain high levels of sesquiterpenes, which have been proven to pass the blood-brain barrier to reach the cells of the brain. It’s primarily used for helping symptoms of ADD/ADHD, anxiety and poor concentration. I like to apply this blend to the back of my children’s neck as they are eating breakfast. You can talk with your school about letting your children apply it during school hours.
Lemon is known as “The Oil of Focus“. It’s citrusy aroma nourishes the mind and aids in concentration. Lemon is a wonderful aid for children who are struggling with school. It is especially helpful in cases of learning disabilities. It pairs well with Rosemary, so you can make a roller bottle with Rosemary and Lemon and apply to the back of the neck or diffuse this powerful duo before school.
Children who are hyperactive or have difficulty concentrating could really benefit from this blend. It contains essential oils that are often used to calm and soothe feelings of stress, excitement, and anxiety. It’s great to help wound up kids calm down and settle in for a restful sleep. I like to give my kids a detox bath at night using this blend or diffuse it in their room for an hour before bed. You can, also, apply it to the backs of their necks or feet before school (if they are very hyperactive) or at bedtime.
