Who has the back-to-school blues? Summer is almost over, which means it’s time to stock up on all the essentials to survive school. This post is your survival guide for everything you need to stay healthy, focused, and well-rested this school year! It includes recipes, diffuser recipes, tips, and tricks for using your Young Living essential oils.
Rise ‘n Shine
Getting children up in the morning can sometimes be a real challenge. Try some of these favorite oils in the diffuser or on the brain stem to be alert and ready to start the day.
Rise ‘n Shine Smoothie
This smoothie recipe packs quite a punch. Your kids will be happy thinking they got dessert for breakfast. But you can feel assured that they got a healthy breakfast on their way out the door.
Mighty and Strong
Thieves and NingXia Red… these are two of my favorite Young Living products that help support a healthy immune system.
First Day Jitters
I am sure we are all familiar with first day jitters. Even parents get them. Diffuser jewelry is a great way to benefit from oils throughout the day. If you don’t have diffuser jewelry, don’t worry. You can apply these oil blends to your child before they leave the house. Or, ask your child’s teachers if they would allow your child to carry a roller bottle to apply as needed throughout the day.
Homework Study Aids
If homework time drives everyone crazy, try diffusing essential oils to activate the limbic system and help your kids focus on getting homework completed. The limbic systems is the brain’s center of emotion, but it also helps with learning and memory. All essential parts of learning!
Kids need a good night sleep. Bedtime routines are amazing for kids and work well. Find an oil that works for you and your kids, like Peace and Calming or Lavender, and make a DIY linen spray or after bath moisturizer.
Sweet Dreams Cream
If you like making your own DIY lotions and body butter, whip up this simple recipe to slather on the kids before bedtime and after a bath. Give them a relaxing massage to help them let go of the stress and get to sleep fast.
Detangler Hair Spray
If you have trouble with your hair after washing it, this spray will not leave you disappointed.
Stinky Kid Spray
While you’re in the DIY mood, mix up a quick spray bottle of Stinky Kid Spray to help eliminate bad odors after practice. Purification is an instant odor eater. Spray this mixture on clothing or inside stinky shoes to knock out the smells. You might also want to keep a bottle in your car if you are hauling more than one stinky kid around town after practice.
Tip: This spray also works well on stinky dogs.
Germy Kid Hand Soap
Did you know you can make your own hand soap for just pennies? Check out this easy recipe.
If your child is allowed to take essential oils to school, mix them up a rollerball of their favorite scents to use throughout the day. He/she can apply it before a big test or for a quick pick-me-up during the afternoon slump. Here are a few really awesome rollerball recipes for kids.
Who doesn’t love diffusing? Not only do you get the health benefits from it, but it makes your house smell wonderful. Here are a few diffuser recipes that you are sure to love.
