The Best Essential Oils For Back to School
Believe it or not, summer just flew by, which means school is back in session. It’s an exciting time, full of learning and new experiences. But it can also be a potentially stressful time, both for parent and student. You’ve stocked up on three-ring binders, pens and highlighters, sure, but some supportive essential oils can be every bit as helpful when making the transition from summer break to straight A’s.
With that in mind, we hit the books hard for some studying of our own, researching which EOs are best for that special back-to-school time of the year. No need to take notes, though — we’ve created a cheat-sheet for you.
Start the Day Off Right
Kicking off the day — the first day of school, no less — is important. A positive outlook and a strong mental attitude can mean the difference between getting on the right foot or waking up on the wrong side of the bed. For this reason, wake your child up with the aroma of Bee Happy or Up & At ‘Em. These OK For Kids synergy blends put a bright, soothing aroma into the air, helping to fortify your student’s senses and positive disposition.
Soothe Anxious Thoughts
School can send your student home with more than homework. Anxious thoughts and worry are as visible as a teacher’s note pinned to a backpack. Luckily, there’s Calm ‘Em Down and Ylang Ylang to, well, calm ‘em down. When your kids crack the books with a scowl on their face, diffuse either of these to lighten and brighten their mood.
Get On-Track For Straight A’s
The school year is not a sprint but a marathon. Pace is the trick. That being said, put your child on the right track to do their best work with either Focus, Focus, Focus or Study Buddy (though, alternating them is even better!). These synergy blends are formulated specifically for kids, giving them a leg up when it comes to studying, creating and tracking down the elusive answer to that tough-as-nails equation.
Did we mention the school year is a marathon? Well, marathons usually go over better for healthy runners. The same is true for scholastic marathoners. Keep mind and body in tip-top shape with synergy blends like Healthy Hero, Germ Ease and Sniffles & Sneezes. These three blends work to shield your student(s) from daily illnesses and germs.
When Studying Gets To Be Too Much
Sometimes all that studying can do a number on a student’s eyes and mind. When you see your child squinting or complaining of a headache, hand them a personal diffuser full of Head-A-Sore-Us. It might not make all headaches extinct, but it certainly puts the one you’re dealing with on notice.
The Inevitable Scrapes and Scuffs
As you well know, the school year isn’t confined to the classroom and history books. Children love to play, and who could blame them. But when the inevitable scrape-up occurs, what should you turn to? We say ease the ouch with Ouch Ease. This synergy blend helps bring relief and comfort when the unforeseen mishaps of the playground befall your little one.
The Key To A Great Day Is Good Sleep
What’s the old saying, the key to a great day is a good night’s sleep? We’re here to agree with that adage and do it one better by offering not one but two sleep-promoting synergy blends. The aptly named Sound Asleep and Sleepy Head blends offer your hard-studying student a first-class ticket to Slumberland.
