Back to School Shopping with Essential Oils – Part 1[social_warfare]
Back to School Season is Here!
Yeah, you read that right. It’s that time of year, again! Back to School season can be exciting for so many reasons. As parents, it gives us the ability to get into a routine, make new habits, and focus on doing things a little better than we did last year. For the kids; the challenges of a new grade (or new school), making friends, and setting lofty goals are enough to excite or scare them. One way to encourage the excitement or ease the fear is to be prepared for this season.
Undoubtedly, most parents have a checklist of some sorts for their Back to School shopping; Required school supplies, new clothes and shoes, essential oils…..wait, whaaaat!?!? ESSENTIAL OILS? Yes….that’s right….Essential Oils. These tiny bottles of goodness have the ability to support your child’s body systems, cognitive thinking, and overall well-being. For those reasons alone, I would argue that these oils should be at the top of your Back to School shopping list.
During the month of August, we will have a 3 part series focusing on some of our favorite, “MUST HAVE” essential oils that no parent (or child) should be without. Feel free to comment below with YOUR favorite essential oils for Back to School shopping.
Thieves Essential Oil and Hand Purifier
By far, Thieves products are the #1 choice when selecting oil-infused items to support you and your loved ones while school is in session! Young Living has an entire line of Thieves products to add to your daily routine, but in this post, I would like to focus on the Thieves essential oil blend and Thieves hand purifier.
Thieves Essential Oil Blend (and Thieves Vitality Essential Oil Blend)
We all know how a child’s immune system can get tested when they’re constantly coming into contact with others that are fighting off something nasty. Enter Thieves essential oil. A powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils, Thieves essential oil is one of Young Living’s most popular products and perfect for providing support to the immune system. There are many different ways to use these oils but here are a few to get started:
- Dilute Thieves essential oil with a carrier oil and rub it on your child’s feet before and after school.
- Add a drop or two of Thieves Vitality essential oil to their morning juice or warm milk to give an added boost. (We only recommend ingesting Young Living’s Vitality essential oils)
- Diffuse Thieves essential oil throughout the house to provide additional support and/or purify the air. There are many different oils, like StressAway, Lavender, and Lemon, that you can add to Thieves to help create a warm and inviting environment for when they arrive home.
Thieves Hand Purifier
Let’s be honest, students (especially little ones) touch a lot of stuff throughout a normal day at school. That thought can get worse when you realize that many of the other children have coughed or sneezed into/onto something that your child has touched or picked up. That’s why Thieves hand purifier is a great item for students to have on hand at all times. The small container fits perfectly in purses or backpack. They can use as often as necessary to purify their hands and since it only takes a small amount each time, the one-ounce container will last longer than you would think.
Additional Thieves Products
The products I’ve listed above are just two of the many products that Young Living offers in the Thieves product line. With more time, I could give you many reasons why you should incorporate each of the products in your daily routine. If you are interested in more information on the Thieves product line, shoot me an email and I’ll promptly reply to any of your questions. If you are not a member of Young Living and would like to know more about the opportunity, feel free to check out the benefits of becoming a member or email me and I’ll get back to you right away.
