How do you get straight A’s?
(Use a ruler!)
Thought I’d start this one off with a little back to school humor.
It’s that time, folks. Time to think about purchasing school supplies, getting new sneakers, and rocking fresh haircuts. My shopping list this year also includes essential oils. School supply shopping should definitely include them, in my opinion. They may not guarantee straight A’s, but they sure can help make life a little easier.
Here are my favorite essential oils for school year success:
Thieves essential oil blend is an absolute must because it supports healthy immune function. Theives includes Eucalyptus radiata essential oil, which may help to promote a healthy respiratory system. My older son loves Thieves, and asks for it when he feels like he could use a boost. When taken as a dietary supplement, Thieves is a great complement to a daily wellness regimen.
Also great for teachers, students and parents alike is Thieves Spray, Ideal for use on door handles, toilet seats, and any surface that needs cleansing to protect from dust, mold, and undesirable microorganisms. This small bottle is perfect for keeping in a purse, drawer or backpack.

Another oil we go through quite a bit of in our house is Peppermint. It is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for supporting normal digestion. It has also been said to help improve concentration and alertness, keep energy up and potentially curb the desire to snack. When the kids come home from school and would much rather hit the pantry and the television remote rather than the books, I know it’s time to get out the Peppermint.
En-R-Gee essential oil blend revitalizes with a blend of stimulating oils that have been used traditionally to help restore mental alertness. Uplifting and strengthening as the name suggests, it may be helpful for that late afternoon energy boost.
GeneYus essential oil blend is excellent to diffuse for young minds while focusing and concentrating on school projects.
Big test coming up? Stress Away Roll-On is a handy, unique blend of vanilla, lime, copaiba, and other pure essential oils that relieves daily stress, encourages relaxation, and reduces nervous tension.
Peace and calm is a must for every household, especially those with school-aged children. So why not diffuse Peace & Calming essential oil blend? A gentle, fragrant blend of Tangerine, Orange, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy essential oils, Peace & Calming has an aroma that’s comforting and freshens the air.
Parents know that whether there are two kids around or twenty, there may be some, shall we say, unique odors that come with them. Purification essential oil blend helps freshen the air and eliminate odors with its unique combination of Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Tea Tree, and Myrtle essential oils. It’s a favorite around our house to use on smelly gym and sports equipment bags!

If your little one loves a back rub before bed, consider Aroma Siez, a relaxing blend that is excellent for massaging away life’s little discomforts. Well suited for use after exercise or at the end of a trying day, it also provides soothing comfort for the head, neck, and tired feet.
Sleeplyze has been a wonderful addition to our family. Designed specifically for kids, my restless son uses at bedtime for a peaceful aromatic environment.
If you prefer to apply directly at bedtime rather than diffuse, Tranquil roll-on has been formulated to calm and relax the body and mind. It’s a proprietary blend of lavender, cedarwood and roman chamomile essential oils.
