Back to school is just around the corner (if your kiddos have not already started). If you are anything like me, you probably are scrambling to make sure you checked off every item on the supply list in preparation for the first day. Pencils, notebooks, binders, and calculators are just some of the things you cram into their backpacks in anticipation of their first day back. There is more to a successful start to the new school year than having the right supplies and some fancy new duds to wear. Essential oils play a role in a successful first day – and every day – at school for the new school year. Here are just some of the ways you can include essential oils in your back-to-school planning.
Some kids get excited about returning to school. Other kids mourn the end of summer and fight you tooth and nail to get on that bus. No matter how your children react to the news that a new school year is upon them, one thing is certain: the night before the first day back can set the tone for the entire school year. Make sure your kids have everything they need to relax and get into the right frame of mind on the eve of back to school. Here are some oily tips for making that happen.
A healthy breakfast is the most important thing you can do to get your kids ready for their first day. In addition to a well-rounded breakfast that includes plenty of choices from the four food groups, consider offering them a serving of NingXia Red®. Packed with powerful antioxidants, it supports normal cellular function and promotes healthy energy levels.
MityVites are another way for your kids to get ahead of the learning curve. Packed with nutrient-dense minerals and vitamins, it can help give your mini-me the support needed to get through the day.
School can be a great source of anxiety for our kids. Essential oils can help. If your child turns into a ball of stress at the mere mention of school, consider using an essential oil roll-on designed to soothe and calm. Rub a few strokes into their wrists before sending them off for the bus. If permitted by your school district, you can send the roll-on with your child for reapplication throughout the day. Just check with your school to make sure it is allowed. Some schools have rules about children carrying anything with them besides the usual school supplies.
Every year, kids miss an average of 11 days of school due to illness. Why? Because as cute as they are, they are little germ factories. It is just part of their charm. Knowing our kids are more prone to illness does not make it easier to juggle missed days of work to stay home with them. Boost your chances – and your kid’s immune system – with these oily lifestyle hacks.
