1. Using All-Natural Cleaning Products:

Instead of using Lysol or other chemical disinfectants, try making your own natural antimicrobial mist with essential oils.

3. Opening Windows:

Airing out your home will help clear the dust and bring better air circulation into those musty spaces.

 

4. Take Your Shoes Off at the Door:

Shoes track in tons of dirt. Making it a habit to take them off at the door will help keep your home cleaner and healthier.

 

5. Clean your Air Ducts/Filters:

Dirty air ducts and filters can fester and spread germs throughout your home. Keeping them clean will help prevent everything from illness to allergies and help you breath easier. Try sprinkling a few drops of Orange essential oil on your filters the next time you change them. This will help purify the air while circulated a nice, citrus scent throughout the house.

Essential Oils for Back-to-School

August 20th, 2014

It’s time to say goodbye to the relaxing days of summer and go back to school! While we tend to dread the onslaught of “full on” days, there are essential oils that you can incorporate into your family’s daily routine to help make each stage of the day a tad bit easier! Below is a list of different essential oils you can diffuse during different times of the day.

Essential oils for the morning:

When my children were smaller, they did not have to be told 1oo times to get out of bed. Instead, they were woken up by the stimulating scents of peppermint and rosemary wafting under their noses. These essential oils will help to perk the whole family up and start the day with alertness and energy.

 

Essential oils for the afternoon:

Waiting in the pick-up line can be a drag, but by spraying calming and uplifting oils into the car (such as grapefruit, sweet orange and jasmine), both you and your children will be in a great mood on the way home from school. This allows for a well-deserved decompression before plowing into the rest of your afternoon schedules.

If your children participate in after-school sports, try some revitalizing oils, such as juniper, cedarwood and cardamom.

To help them focus on homework, diffuse stimulating blends, such as peppermint or rosemary.

 

Essential oils for bedtime:

Long school days, dinner and the homework blitz can leave kids wired at the end of the day. Incorporating relaxing oils, such as vetiver, sandalwood, palmarosa and lavender, into their evening regime will help them unwind and have a restful sleep.

 

Essential oils to build up immunity during the night:

With “back-to-school” comes a breeding of new germs that can assault the healthiest of children. At the slightest sign of a sniffle, or even just as a precaution, I suggest loading up your children with immune-building essential oils, such as eucalyptus, rosewood, ravintsara and tea tree. These will help keep your children from missing important time in the classroom– helping them to be their best self!
