It’s time to say goodbye to summer vacation and hello to a brand-new school year. With a new grade, new classes, and new learning experiences, now is the perfect time for you and your kids to establish new routines. Why not make it fun and fragrant with a little added support from some your favourite essential oils?
In this post, discover how you can include essential oils in your family’s back to school routine, whether it’s before, during, or after school.
After waking up refreshed and ready to go, breakfast should be an essential part of your morning. Using ingredients like IQ Mega®, Lemon essential oil, and Wild Orange essential oil can make the most important meal of the day more exciting and delicious as the whole gang gears up for a great day.
Omega Enhancement – From syrup to smoothies, try adding a serving of IQ Mega at breakfast for a fortifying, citrusy flavour your kids will love. Best of all, IQ Mega is also a great source of omega-3’s, so your whole family can start the day off strong.
Lemon Blueberry Muffins – For a fresh, lemony flavour in a classic breakfast favourite, try these Blueberry Lemon Muffins starring the bright, citrusy taste of Lemon essential oil.
Wild Orange French Toast – Delight in the soft, buttery taste of French toast even more with this recipe for Wild Orange French Toast and Buttermilk Syrup. With just the right amount of sweetness, Wild Orange changes the name of the breakfast game.
With their bellies full and knapsacks all prepped to go, have your little ones pack their favourite supportive aromas from the doTERRA Kid’s Collection or encourage your older kids to use Adaptiv Capsules prior to the school day. Here are our recommendation to help set them up for a success:
Brave® Courage Blend – Before heading out to the school bus , encourage your kids to rub the bright, citrusy scent of Brave Courage Blend on their wrists as a reminder to be brave during a big day at school.
Stronger® Protective Blend – With everything they may face in a school day, kids need all the support they can get. Have them apply Stronger Protective Blend for an uplifting aroma that gives them an extra boost before they head out the door.
Adaptiv Capsules – On days when your teens have a packed schedule, have them take one Adaptiv Capsule before school to help temporarily promote relaxation and support cognitive function.
Along with their completed homework projects, make sure your kids come to school with supportive doTERRA aromas and tools. Remind your younger ones to use grounding and soothing blends throughout the day and have the big kids keep InTune® close by for an energizing aroma between classes. Here’s a few products we recommend they have on hand:
The essential oil fun doesn’t stop once the school day is over. Bring a fragrant flare to the homework table with some of our most supportive and revitalizing blends, like Thinker® for the youngsters and doTERRA Motivate® for the older ones.
doTERRA Motivate – Whether they diffuse the blend or apply doTERRA Motivate® Touch during study time, your teens will enjoy a warm, fresh aroma that creates a motivating atmosphere throughout their creative space.
Getting ready for bed on a school night can sometimes be easier said than done—or is it? Using restful essential oil aromas can invite a much-needed relaxing atmosphere into your space as everyone prepares for bed.
doTERRA Serenity® – Having the sweet, soft floral aroma of doTERRA Serenity wafting throughout your older kids’ rooms can help set the stage for the restful night sleep they need to have another great day at school.
Along with good study habits, you can help lay the foundation for a successful school year with the supportive aromas of your favourite essential oils. By incorporating these aromatic tips into your daily schedule, you can make every school day great with these back-to-school essentials.
