Back to School Essential Oils!

It’s hard to believe it is that time of year already.  Are you a teacher heading back to the classroom?  Perhaps you are a mom or dad sending your kiddos back to school.  College students can benefit from the following oils too!  I spent 12 years as a classroom teacher…I wish I had essential oils then!  Here are the top dōTERRA

 oils I recommend.  New year, new germs haha!

Peppermint

Stay alert and focused.  Apply to wrists and back of neck.  Add 3-4 drops in the diffuser along with Wild Orange in the morning to wake up or use during study time.

OnGuard

A blend of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.  Supports a healthy immune system and respiratory function.  Drink 1 drop in 4 oz. of water or add 3-4 drops  in the diffuser.  The On Guard hand sanitizing mist is perfect for killing germs on hands and surfaces.

Frankincense

All things brain!…focus, attention, concentration.  The “king of oils” also boosts the immune system; a drop under the tongue, drink 1 drop in 4 oz. water, or apply to bottoms of the feet.

Rosemary 

Improve brain function.  Diffuse along with Eucalyptus in the morning while getting ready for school.  Rosemary also balances emotions, helps reduce nervous tension and combats occasional fatigue.  Apply topically, use internally, or enjoy aromatically.   The kids collection has a roller blend Thinker; Vetiver, Peppermint, Clementine, and Rosemary in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil.  

Balance

Place on the bottom of your feet to promote feelings of calmness and tranquility throughout the day.  Roll on wrists when feeling stressed or anxious.  Diffuse this blend of Spruce Leaf, Ho Wood Leaf, Frankincense Resin, Blue Tansy Flower, Blue Chamomile Flower, and Osmanthus Flower essential oils to promote calmness.

Melalueca

Use to cleanse and purify the skin and nails and to support a healthy complexion. Taken internally, Melaleuca promotes healthy immune function.  Make a spray to clean surfaces throughout the home or classroom to protect against germs.  Use a glass spray bottle with distilled water, 3 drops Clove and 3 drops Melaleuca to repel (gasp!) lice on the scalp.

Serenity

A blend of Lavender Flower, Cedarwood, Ho Wood Leaf, Ylang Ylang Flower, Marjoram Leaf, Roman Chamomile Flower, Vetiver Root, Vanilla Bean Absolute, Hawaiian Sandalwood Wood diffuses to de-stress and unwind after a long day.  Apply 2–3 drops to the back of the neck or on the heart for feelings of calmness and peace.

Lavender

Apply topically to ease stress and anxiety.  Take in a capsule or under the tongue along with Peppermint and Lemon to decrease allergy symptoms.  Diffuse on nightstand for restful sleep.
