dōTERRA Essential Oils in the Classroom
Whether at a public school or homeschool, essential oils can have numerous benefits for kids as well as teachers. Jessa Johnson is a doTERRA Wellness Advocate and a mother of two. Both of her boys have been attending the Castle Rock Christian Academy in Colorado since 2012. In 2014, shortly after joining doTERRA, Jessa donated “clean hands spray” and diffusers with a bottle of doTERRA On Guard® to every classroom and teacher. After noticing positive results, a majority of the classrooms at Castle Rock are now diffusing essential oils daily. One of the main differences they’ve noticed is the reduced number of absences for students and teachers. Out of 19 teachers, less than 14 leave days were used during the 2015/2016 school year—less than half the days used in prior years.
The school also took a non-toxic cleaning route with products that are safe for both kids and faculty members. They use doTERRA On Guard® Foaming Hand Wash in preschool bathrooms and doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate to clean tables and desks. Principal Torrence Jackson says, "Principals all over America know that safety is a number one concern in our schools. Thanks to the help of doTERRA, our students can successfully learn in an environment that is pro-active about health and wellness."
Most of the faculty members personally use doTERRA essential oils at home. “I’ve seen such an incredible change in my own family's immunity, focus, and overall health,” says Jess Johnson. And Principal Jackson adds, “It is not an easy feat keeping up with the next generation of leaders! I am thankful to have a restful night’s sleep with doTERRA Lavender oil."
Jenni Smith, the Preschool Director, was introduced to doTERRA over two years ago. After using doTERRA On Guard in her home, Jenni became a believer. She has been instrumental in introducing oils to the school. Because of her trust in the products at home, it was easy to implement them at school. She says, “One parent said after touring the school that it sealed the deal for her when she saw the doTERRA diffuser!”
Shelly Martinez, preschool teacher and parent, uses doTERRA On Guard and Wild Orange in her classroom every day to cleanse the air of "unpredictable" smells. She feels it also helps the kids stay focused.
Stacie Groves, third grade teacher and mom, diffuses Lime and doTERRA On Guard daily in her classroom. “I let the kids take turns picking out oils and putting them in the diffuser themselves. They love it and ask for it daily.”
