Back to School Essential Oils Toolkit

The beginning of every school year tends to be busy with all the new changes happening. As a previous middle school teacher, I remember all the chaos of getting things ready. Here is the back to school essential oil toolkit that I recommend to my clients each new school year!

Back to School Essential Oils Toolkit

In this toolkit I am going to recommend the top 5 essential oils you should have on hand this school year, the materials needed to create blends for your kids to use, and 6 school recipes that are great to keep close by.

Before I get into the top 5 essential oils to use, I want to take a moment to discuss the importance of the quality of essential oils used. You want to make sure to use pure, unadulturated essential oils that are indigenous to where they grow, are organic, or have higher than organic standards.

It’s also important to get your essential oils through a company that tests their oils from a third party to ensure these high standards using GC/MS testing. These will be the safest and purest essential oils to use on your kids. It is so important to use a brand you trust!

I have tried many essential oils company throughout my years using them and have finally found a company I trust that have shown great results for myself and my family!

Before using any essential oils on kids it’s important to remember to speak with your doctor. Every body is different and these are generally recognized as safe, but always start slow and patch test. Essential oils are great natural solutions, but they do have to be used safely.
