A new school year is both exciting and challenging. For many children it is also scary. One of my little boys clung to the car door, begging to be rescued from his first few days of kindergarten.
Sometimes a new school experience can magnify problems that might otherwise be managed easily. Children might demonstrate emotional outbursts that seem out of character. They might feel sick or anxious or tearful.
Parents can be prepared with an arsenal of oils!
Diffusing WILD ORANGE in the morning and SERENITY in the evening can help begin and end the school days successfully.
The other oils on this list are in roller bottles which are easy to carry along in Mom’s purse or the student’s backpack.
Hopefully, these oils will not all be needed every day, but by building the oil supply parents can be ready to deal with the needs of each day.
Here are my top 10 picks for a successful new school year:
DIGESTZEN TOUCH — for all kinds of tummy problems. Nervous little tummies get queasy. Rigid schedules can be a cause of constipation. Just a swipe of Digestzen Touch on the navel can help.
OREGANO TOUCH — for scrapes and scratches. Boo-boos happen. So does infection. Oregano can help chase infection away before it begins. Every Mom and every school nurse should have this oil handy.
SERENITY — for a good night’s sleep. This is a great nite-nite oil for diffusing. School days can’t go well if sleep doesn’t go well.
WILD ORANGE — for a happy morning. Get the diffuser going before waking the children. The happy orange scent will help the day begin with joyful energy.
