Essential Oils for Back to School

Essential Oils for Back to School.

Essential oils are a great way to help your kids get ready and stay healthy for school!

Whether your kids are attending school in person, homeschooling, or distance learning, keeping them healthy and happy is important during the school year.

Airomé’s essential oils are therapeutic-grade and all natural so they are safe to use in a diffuser for aromatherapy around your children.

Restful Sleep

It’s important for your kids to get a good night’s sleep and to be well rested for school so they can be alert and understand what they are learning. Lavender Essential Oil can be dropped on a pillow or stuffed animal to help promote calm feelings. You can also make a linen spray by adding 10 drops of lavender to a water bottle filled with distilled water.

Lavender Essential Oil

Our Dreamland Kids Essential Oil Blend is formulated to help create a calm and happy environment for your little one. Add 4-5 drops for every 100 ml of water to a diffuser and enjoy the sweet fragrance of lavender, orange, tangerine, and geranium.

How Should I Store My Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are all-natural products that need to be stored a certain way so we can get the most out of each bottle. A lot of plant material goes into each bottle so it’s a good idea not to be wasteful.

Airomé’s essential oils are 100% pure, all-natural, and therapeutic grade so storing them correctly is very important to the life-span of the oil.

How should I store my essential oils?

So how do we store essential oils to keep them fresh for a longer period of time? Here are some tips.

  1. Store essential oils in a place that stays room temperature, like your kitchen cupboard or bedroom shelf. Keep them away from any heat source, like a kitchen stove or oven. Essential oils are flammable and do have a flash point.
  2. Don’t expose essential oils to direct sunlight. This is why most essential oils are in dark-colored glass bottles. Keeping your oils in a cupboard or drawer will help the oils last longer.
  3. When not in use, keep lids sealed tightly on your bottles to avoid exposure to the air. Oxidation will evaporate the oil and cause the essential oil to deteriorate.
  4. Keep moisture out of your essential oils. You can see if your essential oil has water in it if it appears cloudy or water is beaded up at the bottom of the bottle.

Aromatherapy and Cravings

Summer is here and we are all trying to fit back into our swimming suits and shorts that are just a bit tighter than last year.

We have three essential oils that can really help get you back into the swing of things during the summer months.

Stress plays a big part when it comes to how much we eat. When we are stressed, we are more likely to have cravings for quick, unhealthy food.

Did you know that aromatherapy can help uplift and boost your mood? Next time you get a hankering for a bag of chips or a bar of chocolate, think about diffusing or simply smelling these essential oils. These three essential oils can help boost your mood and help you feel energized without having to grab that afternoon snack.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

How to best use essential oils:

6 Item Checklist for an Easy Back-to-School Transition

Depending on which part of the country you live in, school either just started for you, or is about to start. It’s not too late to get organized for back-to-school to make the transition from summer to school as easy as possible. Check out this back-to-school checklist to help you get ready for the big day!

  • Move Up Bedtime- It’s a good idea to start getting into the swing of things schedule-wise before the first day of school. Start moving up bedtime at least a week before school starts so the kids get use to going to bed and waking up earlier. If they have a rough time with thechange, diffusing lavender oil at bedtime can help promote feelings of sleepiness.
  • Sort Through Clothes- Before you head out the door to do back-to-school shopping, go through the clothes you already have on hand to see what gaps need to be filled. This will not only save you money, it will make the shopping experience more focused and stress-free. Have the kids put on a little fashion show to model what’s currently in their closet. They’ll have fun and you can check for fit.
  • Add School Supplies to Your List- While you’re out shopping for clothes, you might as well pick up school supplies too. If you don’t already have a supply list, email the teachers for one.
  • Plan Lunches and Grocery Shop- Plan out what you need for main courses for lunches, and look for what’s on sale for snack items like fruit cups or granola bars. Don’t forget to make sure everyone who needs a lunch box has one.
  • Make a System for Storing Papers- All those forms your kids will bring home on the first day of school for you to sign are just the start of what could be a year-long struggle. Make a space in your home where the kids can keep papers that need to be signed, other notifications, and homework they’re working on.
  • Sync Your Calendar- Make a habit of sitting down each month and entering school events and notices into your personal calendar. Things get hectic quick, but staying ahead of the game can really reduce stress and mishaps. Set an alarm for early-out days, and a reminder to check your calendar each day to see what’s coming up for tomorrow.

Going back to school is a lot of work, but if you can stay organized, the payoff will be fewer jitters and more confidence for you and your kids on the big day.

Essential Oils for Traveling

Once you get into the habit of using essential oils, they tend to become, well, essential. The thought of leaving home without them starts to feel counterintuitive, but you probably don’t want to bring your whole collection along with you on a trip. Knowing which oils might end up being the most useful while traveling will help you to decide what to bring, and when to use them.
 

Peppermint Oil– Traveling can make you experience all kinds of unpleasant feelings. Eating out, trying new foods, and riding on planes, boats and cars can all be unsettling for your stomach. Muscle and joint stiffness and fatigue will often take their toll too. Diffusing peppermint can help to ease some of these feelings, and leave you re-energized and ready to have some fun.

Lavender Oil- Nothing wreaks havoc on a schedule like traveling, and getting good rest on a trip can be difficult. If you’re missing your own bed, and feeling some stress, try diffusing lavender at bedtime.

Breathe In- Sharing a hotel room with your family’s loudest snorer, combined with dried out sinuses from airplanes and air conditioning can make clear airways seem unattainable. Diffusing our Breathe In blend can promote feelings of easy breathing for everyone in the room.

Guard Against- Close quarters, recirculated air, hand rails, and public bathrooms can make even the most open person feel a little invaded by unseen threats. Diffuse our Guard Against blend to purify the air and uplift the body.

Traveling with liquids on an airplane can seem intimidating, but as long as you follow TSA’s rules, you don’t have anything to worry about. When packing up your essential oils, keep the following TSA guidelines in mind:

  • All liquids in your carry-on must fit in a quart-sized bag.
  • There is a 3.4 oz (100 ml) per container size limit for individual items.
  • Items that contain more than 3.4 oz of liquid, or that won’t fit in your quart-sized bag, can be taken in your checked baggage.

Combining essential oils with carrier oils in a roller ball container also makes them easy to travel with, and allows you to apply them topically cleanly and quickly. When you follow these easy tips, you can enjoy the full range of aromatherapy benefits, even when you’re on the run.

8 Essential Oils for Cleaning

The lifestyle and wellness uses for essential oils are limitless, and cleaning with them is a great way to access their benefits. Many essential oils have antibacterial properties. They also brighten and refresh a space without the use of harsh chemicals, making them ideal for family use. Citrus oils are some of the most popular essential oils for cleaning, along with a few others. Some of the most common oils used for cleaning from the Airomélineup include:

  • Rosemary
  • Clove
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Tea Tree

Powerful Blends

In addition to our single oils, Airomé Essential Oil Blends are also great for cleaning. Blends combine the strength of several complementary essential oils in one, maximizing the benefits of each. Both our Citrus Boost and Guard Against Blends can be used for cleaning year-round.

How To

Essential oils can be added to a spray bottle of water and applied directly to a surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. Essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air when diffused using an Airomé Ultrasonic Diffuser.
