Homeschool Helpers - 4 Oils My Kids and I Use Everyday



I'm a new Homeschool Mom. First year. Kindergarten and Pre-K. I taught middle school science for five years, so it's kinda the same, yet so different. For us, we chose what we felt was best for our kids and our family this Fall, and that was homeschooling. I'm so glad we did.


Many parents are new Homeschooling Moms (or Dads!) too this school year. Some by choice, some by default. Either way, it can be a lot. For the kids. For the parents.

Whether you are homeschooling, supervising virtual school, or even doing in person school, these are must haves for a healthy school year!




Thieves: I know I say this a lot, but this could be one of my favorite oils ever! Thieves is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils that fill any space with a rich, spicy aroma. I love the smell any day of the year, but especially during the Fall and Winter months. We use Thieves daily on our feet (or spines) to keep our immune systems healthy and our bodies happy. It's our one stop shop for immunity support! We also use the line of Thieves cleaner, hand soap, dish soap, and laundry detergent too. It’s on us and around us everyday!




GeneYus: This oil does what it's name implies! GeneYus is an essential oil blend created with kids in mind. It's already pre-diluted (ages 2-12) and formulated to increase creativity that promotes feelings of inspiration and productivity. To help concentrate or stay on task, I'll use on temples, wrists, or back of neck for my kiddos to focus or I'll diffuse in the afternoon to give us a boost to finish the day strong.




Dream Catcher: A few drops of this oil goes a long way! Dream Catcher smells incredible with a fresh, citrus and floral blend. It's a part of our nightly routine to fill their diffusers to promote and enhance deep sleep. It's also known to help against bad dreams. A great way to unwind and prepare for another day ahead.




KidScents MightyVites: My kids' morning routines always includes two MightyVites! These berry-flavored chewables are specifically designs for kids using nutrient-dense food-based superfruits, plants, and vegetables to support general health and well-being. I love that they don't contain any preservatives or synthetic flavors or colors. And it's formulated with wolfberry powder (just like our NingXia) - yes please!
