This school year is so different for most of us, and many of us parents are finding ourselves as the TEACHERS! Check out some of these great essential oil recipes to get you (whether you’re a parent or a teacher… or both!) and your kids through the school day.
First up, so many schools are requiring masks. 🙁 If this is a necessity for your kids, you can roll some oils on that promote focus and clarity AND that contain sesquiterpenes, which increase oxygen in the brain. 🙌🏻 Because if you’re wearing a mask, fresh oxygen is in short supply! Here’s a mask roll-on recipe for all you mamas doing all you can to help your kids through this trying time.
Did you know that sesquiterpenes can increase levels of oxygen in the brain? Sesquiterpenes are found in high amounts in Frankincense, Cedarwood, Vetiver, Sandalwood, and Patchouli. Get that oxygen to the brain!
Parents and teachers… sometimes you need an energy pick-me-up. Make yourself a NingXia Bomb… energy that won’t leave you with the jitters!
In the classroom or at home, Thieves cleaner is a must for effectively cleaning without harsh chemicals. Just one bottle of concentrate makes about 29 bottles of cleaner, making this the safest, most economical, effective cleaner I know of!
Need to wipe some things down? Make some DIY wipes with your Thieves Cleaner and your oils! Check out this recipe:
Next, check out these diffuser and roll-on recipes perfect for the classroom, whether that’s in a school or at your kitchen table.
Are you or the kids lacking creativity? Try this in your diffuser or in a roll on.
Too much math or thinking? Use this essential oil blend to relax your mind, help you focus, and reduce tension in your head and neck.
Diffuser bombs are up next… these are AWESOME! How often do you make your favorite diffuser combos?! Why not combine them in a bottle so you can just drop them in, already combined?! Genius! Here is a great recipe to freshen the air.
