As many of our kids are slowly returning back to school in one way or another, I thought it would be a good time to talk about some Back to School Essentials for Kids!
Here are some of my favorite doTERRA products to help prepare and support your kiddos during school year:
This is a must have for each backpack! I also keep one on each side of my car doors so we keep the germs at bay! Did you know it meets all the FDA requirements for hand sanitizer without all the harmful and harsh chemicals others have?? It purifies your hands by eliminating 99.9% of bacteria and other germs on the skin through an extremely fine, quick-drying mist. This makes it perfect for sanitizing your child’s hands throughout the day!
The doTERRA Kids Collection is such an awesome kit! It's like a kids mini oil toolbox to help cope with day-to-day issues that come up from growing pains, tummy issues, not feeling well, to helping your littles feel more relaxed, grounded, brave, and confident!
It includes the following oil rollerballs:
- Thinker® Focus Blend - helps create a supportive and positive environment for work and study-time
- Calmer® Restful Blend - helps create a soothing environment for winding down
- Stronger® Protective Blend - promotes feelings of wellness and vitality and helps keep the ickies at bay
- Tamer® Digestive Blend - eases the effects of motion sickness, stomach upset, and all things digestive
- Rescuer® Soothing Blend - eases muscle discomfort and reduces feelings of tension for growing, tired legs
- Steady® Grounding Blend - for daily centering, use when you feel nervous, anxious, or overwhelmed
- Brave® Courage Blend - helps boost confidence and belief and helps you reset when you feel doubt and stress
Research shows that Essential Fatty Acids are nutrients required for many key functions in the human body, including cell growth, brain development, muscle activity, immune function, joint health, and many others.* Give your kid’s growing bodies support in these areas with doTERRA IQ Mega! IQ Mega contains the essential nutrients DHA and EPA. Plus, it takes the fishy taste out of fish oil with the fresh flavor of CPTG® Wild Orange essential oil.
Ok, my kids LOVE these! They call them emoji vitamins because there is a cute smiley face on them, plus they are a watermelon flavor!! They will go and grab them and remind me they haven't had their vitamins yet! How cool is that?!
We know it is also vital to make sure our kids are getting much needed vitamins. It is hard to get all the nutrition we need from the Standard American Diet (SAD) and let's be honest, the quality of food today just isn't the same. Always strive to eat whole live foods and have your kids do the same. I know for some, this is a constant struggle for our finicky eaters! doTERRA's a2z Chewables are a combination of botanical extracts and B, A, C, and E vitamins, and can support healthy cell development and longevity when taken daily.*
Okay these seriously taste like pixie sticks! And my kids make will even pick up toys for one! It's my secret weapon! They are sweetened with Xylitol (keep away from dogs) and have an awesome strawberry/melon flavor! PB Assist Jr is a powdered probiotic supplement designed for children or adults who have trouble swallowing pills. It includes 5 billion live cells of a unique blend of six different probiotic strains, specifically selected for their benefits among children.
When it comes to kids and their health, never underestimate the power of sleep! Supporting your kids bedtime routine is vital. Essential oils like Serenity, Balance, Lavender, Cedarwood, and Juniper Berry are just a few that can help promote a restful sleep. During the day I also like to diffuse On Guard and Breathe to help minimize any airborne threats during that icky time of year or when my family isn't feeling their best. I also like to diffuse oils for focus and concentration like frankincense, lemon, peppermint, rosemary, and even basil! What are some of your favorites??
