The Secret to School Success

Are you preparing to send children back to school? Does the school year sometimes feel overwhelming for both you and your child? Follow these simple tips on creating routines in your home that will lead to a happy, healthy, successful school year!

  1. Make sure you and your children get optimal sleep by establishing bedtime routines. When you're well rested, your mind is more alert and active, making it easier to concentrate in school. A simple routine like diffusing Lavender Essential Oil in the family room before bedtime helps everyone unwind and prepare for sleep.
  2. Don't over schedule yourself or your children. Leave enough downtime in the calendar to enjoy playing outdoors, reading a book, or just hanging out!
  3. During study time, consider diffusing Vetiver Essential Oil for its calming, soothing properties. For children who have a difficult time focusing, apply a few drops to the bottom of the feet and massage.
  4. Promote healthy habits by diffusing and applying On Guard Essential Oil. Be sure to remind children often to wash their hands frequently. Keep On Guard Foaming Hand Wash near every sink in the home!
