School can be a stressful or anxious time for students of all ages.
Aromatherapy is a powerful tool that students can use at school and when they study.
Whatever your child’s school situation, be prepared with essential oils!
We are blessed to homeschool, and I can use oils in our home all day long! I diffuse essential oils and massage diluted topical oils as needed to myself and my children throughout our day. We manage our mood and health with essential oils. And we like citrus blends to diffuse away kitchen or science experiment smells!
When I attended an oil convention, one of the presenters mentioned that some school nurses allow and can dispense essential oils just like prescription meds. If children go to the office to take OTC or prescription meds during the day, then your child should be able go to the office periodically for aromatherapy purposes. Get notes from your natural health provider or physician. Talk to your school administrators!
Oiling kids up before bed is a great wind-down routine. We include it with prayers and storytime.
On a side note, have your family members tested for vitamin B and D deficiency to ensure brain health. Often deficiencies in these important vitamins mimic depression and anxiety symptoms. Read articles about vitamin D deficiency. And read this article: The ADHD Scam and the Mass Drugging of Schoolchildren (Transcript)
Diffusers and aromatherapy jewelry make great teacher gifts!
There are multiple ways to use Essential Oils in a school environment.
Here are some of our oily methods we use with our children.
Whether it’s test time or just a busy, crowded schedule, kids often experience more anxiety and stress than we did while attending school. Be prepared to help your children with a healthy natural diet, prayer, boundaries, gentle guidance, plenty of sleep, and essential oils. Lavender is great to promote restful sleep, calmess, and even healthy skin.
Many of my friends whose children attend school worry so much those first few weeks when they’re exposed to all sorts of illnesses.
Boost those immune systems and shorten the lifespan of those viruses and bacteria!
We like oregano, lemongrass, and Thieves blend.
Maintaining Energy and Attention
We all get run-down and worn out. Some of us are affected more easily than others. Help your kids be at their best with a healthy whole foods diet, nutritional supplements, clean water, and essential oils!
Many essential oils can help with focus, attention, and brain balance.
Citrus oils can help relax and smell so refreshing. Orange is my son’s favorite! We have lots of favorite blends we diffuse or anoint.
Some studies suggest essential oils can help fidgety children combined with an improved natural diet. When we changed our diet, we noticed significant positive changes in behavior and attention. We also take cod liver oil daily.
There are lots of aromatherapy accessories and jewelry like bracelets and necklaces that can help kids while being stylish and unique.
