If you still have children at school, you are either counting down the days until they go back to school or feeling sad that the holidays are almost over. There’s no need to confess as to which category you fall into. Or perhaps you are getting to the end of your own Christmas break and gearing up to go back to work?

With the rush of Christmas and New Year behind us, it is so easy to put wellness on the back seat and put it in the “I’ll get to it later” category. No!!! Wellness and self-care should be a natural part of your daily habits and I want to share with you some great easy ways that you can get your children and yourself ready for the busy times ahead.

Now you won’t find these things on any school book list but I promise you that they do make such a difference. If you concentrate on wellness and focus on creating the right state of mind and harmony, then it will pay off in calmer children and parents! Heck, I no longer have young children to get prepped for school but I have these essentials in my reservoir of tricks and I know they work.

I’ve previously written about the wonders of Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils and why they should be part of your health care. Let’s talk about how you can incorporate some of these into your homes to make things better for both your children and yourself.

Need to create a positive aromatic environment in your home this back-to-school season? Joy is a fresh blend of Bergamot, Lemon, Palmarosa, and other essential oils that lifts the spirit when used aromatically. It brings such a feeling of happiness into the heart! Simply diffuse as needed for an uplifting scent. This is a great oil to place in a diffuser in the area that your child does their homework.

We all feel stressed at times. Going back to work or school isn’t always smooth sailing. There’s the extra pressures that are created around expectations, homework, deadlines, etc and still trying to have some normal life. A natural solution to combat stress is to use the incredible Stress Away. This wonderful essential oil contains the unique combination in the right balance of lime and vanilla and it brings an incredible feeling of peace and tranquility to both children and adults and helps to relieve nervous tensions. It also helps to improve mental clarity, mental response as well as restores equilibrium and promotes relaxation. You can use Stress Away for the following reasons:

  • Use to combat daily stresses
  • Use to relax and unwind
  • Use to bring feelings of peace and tranquility
  • Wear as a perfume on your pulse points (or child’s pulse points)
  • Use it when life won’t let you slow down
  • Use when experiencing emotional stress, anger, restlessness or fear.
  • And as an added bonus, use when feeling hungry to aid in curbing food and sugar cravings

This incredible blend of essential oils is a sensational oil for you to have in a diffuser at work or place it on your child’s homework desk. This wonderful oil has been a life line for me during times of meeting deadlines and it can:

  • Increase concentration
  • Remove brain fog
  • Boost energy
  • Increase focus ability
  • Support mental clarity
  • Dissolve petrochemicals from the brain

You can also place a drop of this under the soles of your child’s feet as well as place a drop at the back of the neck. It can also be placed under the tongue for quick absorption.

This essential oil is in high rotation at My Kitchen Heals. I keep it in my kitchen as it features in many of my recipes as well as cleaning products (do you know how fabulous this essential oil is for dissolving grease, cleaning cutting boards and kitchen tops?)

This beautiful essential oil consists of 68% d-limonene and it is cold pressed from approximately 75 lemons so it is very potent. It has a strong, clean purifying scent that can be calming when inhaled. I suggest you place a diffuser in the area that your child does his/her homework as it promotes mental clarity and calm.

Did you know that Young Living Lemon essential oil is an ingredient in NingXia Red Juice and Inner Defence Capsules?


I havetheives a special love for the whole Thieves® range as it was my first introduction to Young Living Oils.

For now, teach children about cleanliness before eating snacks or lunch with convenient and portable hand purifier.

Over the next few months, I will share more exciting ways in which you can use essential oils, including some super yummy recipes plus some great skincare and homecare products that you can make with the ingredients in your kitchen.
