Frankincense offers grounding and balancing properties during the busy back-to-school season. Dilute frankincense essential oil with a carrier oil of your choosing (we like fractionated coconut oil due to it's odorless and colorless properties) before applying it to wrists, soles of the feet and chest. Applying frankincense to these points can help your child to feel uplifted, calmed and empowered - great for promoting focus and calming nerves right before a test!

Diffuse sweet orange essential oil in the bedroom and kitchen on those early school mornings to help everyone start the day on a positive and optimistic note. Study sessions can seem extra tedious at the beginning of the school year, but sweet orange oil paired with rosemary or cedarwood can help to cheerfully boost concentration.
Peppermint is another staple in your back-to-school kit because of its' versatility. It offers a very fresh aroma that can prompt clarity, feelings of action, alertness and positivity. Use peppermint essential oil all day every day alone or combined with other oils to maintain a joyous and productive mindset.
