Back to School with Essential Oils-My Top 5

It is that time of year again. Back to School! 

5 Must have Oils for Back to School

On Guard-Use this oil daily to ward off the bugs & germs of school! Diffuse in the morning to give your kids a boost before school, then again after school to kill what they bring home :) My friend Elaine puts several drops of On Guard in a spray bottle and uses it as a natural hand sanitizer instead of the alcohol based stuff. Don't forget to use the other On Guard products: OG Cleaner, tooth paste, cough drops, and hand soap, and the new On Guard beadlets! (Perfect to put in your backpack or purse).

Peppermint-Studies show that smelling peppermint while studying and then smelling peppermint while testing increases test scores. By association you remember what you study. In addition, the peppermint helps to oxygenate the brain. A drop of peppermint is also nice to wake you up on sleepy afternoons or to freshen your breath. Hmmmm!

InTune (Focus Blend)- Need some help with focus and concentration? This blend was created to help with ADD/ADHD. It has a wonderful aroma. I like to wear it as a perfume. It keeps ME focused :) Get it for FREE this month with a 200 PV order!!

Balance (Grounding Blend)- Love this oil for stress & anxiousness. Another great blend for focus. I had a mom who got this for her daughter with test nervousness. She loved it. Her daughter put some on her hands and back of her neck and was able to feel calm and focused during her end of year test. In fact, she got her best score!

Serenity (Calming Blend)- My son Jack loves to use this one every night before bed to help him wind down and sleep. Serenity is a great oil to add to your bedtime routine.

Slim & Sassy Skinny Wrap

Slim & Sassy Body Wrap!!

I recently came across this on the doTERRA Diamond Club site. It was too great to not share!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I recently read a suggestion that I thought beneficial... instead of using plastic wrap made of who knows what...use muslin cloth.

I got the recipe from Becky Cox.
5-10 drops S&S
1 tsp FCO.
Combine the two ingredients and rub on "problem area" ( Make sure it is completely absorbed ) then wrap area with regular old plastic wrap! :) Leave on for 20 minutes to as long as the person would like! It detoxes! Its running like wildfire on my team! I have a gal who l lost 4 inches from her first wrap! I teach the regular class intro, and while I am teaching I have a few IPC's wrapping new guests! That way they are feeling it tingle and working as I teach about essential oils. Then I focus on the individual ingredients found in Slim and Sassy and the benefits that they are receiving on top of inch loss! * just remi…

Roller Bottle Remedies

Lately, I have really enjoyed using different roller bottle recipes on myself & my kids. They make oil use quick & easy and less messy. You know the experience, where you are so excited that your kids are taking care of their own health, yet they are dripping and dropping oil clumsily all over the place :) 
Here are some great roller bottle solutions:

Bloody Nose Remedy with Essential Oils

Yesterday my daughter Elsie got a really bad bloody nose.  In fact, it kinda freaked me out.  Usually, when one of my kids gets a nose bleed it doesn't last long-a tissue later and it is all cleared up.  With Elsie, she was literally dripping for about 5 minutes from both nose holes. Yuck!  After 5 minutes with no stopping in site, my mom energy kicked in and sent my to my wonderful "Modern Essentials" book! 

For nose bleeds: Combine 2 drops cypress, 1 drop helichrysum, and 2 dropslemon in 8 oz. (1 cup) ice water.  Soak a cloth in the water, and apply the cloth to nose and back of neck. I am here to report that it worked! From the time it took me to take my son to scouts and back it had completely stopped without another occurance! Wahoo!

Also, since her clothes were covered with the red stuff, I quickly put them into a bucket of cold water and a tbsp. of the new On Guard Cleaner Concentrate. After a wash...stain free clothes.
