Essential Oils for Homeschool & Giveaway

Thursday, April 16, 2015

As many of you already know, I'm a natural kind of girl. Many of the homeschoolers I have come across approach health in a very unique way. We as a bunch are learners, DIYers and researchers. We want the best for our families not only educationally, but physically as well. Essential oils are a huge puzzle piece in our picture of health for our family. We use them not only as a health preventative but daily in our homeschool as well. Recently I taught a Back to School Facebook class, but I wanted to share this information with you as well. Oils have made a great addition to our homeschool!

 Essential Oils can keep our families well during Back to School season. Oils can also help our students perform at their best. These are some of my favorite recipes, a few favorite Back to School friendly products and how we use them here at Monarch Room.

 Let’s face it, there are plenty of days during the school year when we would much prefer to stay planted in bed than jump up and face the world! We all know that a good night’s rest on a regular basis is the best way to wake up refreshed. However, on the days when sleep is short and the to-do list is long, give your day a little kick-start with this Rise and Shine Spray. Inhale deeply and revel in the gift of a new day!

As a homeschool mom and there are many days when I wake up and get going but I am not filled with energy right out of the gate. I feel my feet dragging and my eyelids drooping. A quick roll of this spicy combo will help support a healthy boost to your day.

Ever have a day when your mind seems to wander endlessly and the things you wanted to accomplish seem to be a distant and unrealistic aspiration? I know I have! I have most certainly experienced days when their schoolwork takes twice as long as it should because the things around them seem far more interesting than the book in front of them. For those days when your mind is exhausted and your thoughts are scattered, this oily combo that will help support a healthy mental focus and give you and your kids focus on the work at hand. This is a must have!

 When you need a quick and easy focus booster and don’t have a roller bottle made up, try one of these oils or oil combos to awaken your focus. Simply apply to the neck, temples and bottoms of feet or open the bottle and inhale deeply.

Long days, sports practices, daily responsibilities, and piles of homework can often times lead to tired brains! When your kiddo sits down to complete his/her homework with a mind that is overwhelmed and unequipped to take in any new information, diffuse one of these oils to support healthy brain functioning.

 My oldest son is not a fan of math and daily work can oftentimes be self-defeating because of his lack of confidence. Diffusing oils in the school room or the area where your kids complete their work can create a more confidence inspiring atmosphere.

Whether it be from anxiety over a test, not enough rest the night before or school-time drama, sometimes tummies can use a little calming effect.

 Growing up can be emotionally taxing…changes, uncontrollable circumstances, learning new things, experiencing new responsibilities. I wouldn’t want to do it again! Sometimes kids just need a little dose of happy!

Kids running, yelling, rough housing, asking questions, reaching for snacks – all of these add up to a mom who wants to lose it! Diffuse 1-2 of these oils for a calming effect throughout the house. 

 Alternately, combine the following oils for a peaceful home.  

A deep and peaceful night of sleep generally equals a much better start and progression of the following day. To support peaceful rest, try one of the following recipes and end your day well.

 Alternately, try this oily rub.

  1. I would definitely use the Tummy Calm for myself as well as my children. Anxiety runs in my family, and its a constant battle for me. I also have stomach issues, so this would be super helpful. Next, we would use the Confidence Booster. My daughter lacks the confidence to read aloud in front of her siblings, to answer questions, and to narrate what she's read. And, lastly, I would use the Happy Spirits! With five kids, we for sure need happy spirits to deal with distractions, frustrations, and interruptions! And a few of my children that shall remain unnamed, need a little boost in the happy spirits area!!

    Great giveaway. I've been wanting to try these for awhile now!

  2. I have been wanting to try oils for the longest time and can't afford it! I would use the Calming blend for us to have better, sweeter days! Boy, do we need that! We could definitely use something to help us chill out! Second, I would choose thieves for immune support. Everyone has allergies and we get sick every winter, plus we have a baby now! Third, I think confidence booster. For the children, to feel like they CAN DO IT when it comes to their school work; for me, so I can get through the day! Thanks so much for this giveaway! The info was so helpful!

  3. My son has multiple medical issues that I would love to start using oils for, stress & anxiety for me, and to stay healthy!

  4. Megan,

    I can definitely relate! The oils have amazed me time and time again. Sometimes I wonder what they can't do more than what they can. Often times it's me who needs the attitude adjustment, but they have helped my kids in that area too.


    Thanks so much for taking the time to respond! I totally understand. It totally took me a while to commit too. Silas (my youngest) was actually the one who begged me to go ahead and get them. Check back here when it's the right time for you. I often have some kind of promotion going on, and would love to see you get your hands on the oils. You would LOVE them!
