Autumn is in the air, Halloween is around the corner, and soon enough holiday shopping will be in full swing! As a mom to three daughters – two in elementary school and one in junior high – my holiday gift list includes quite a few teachers. This year, I am going to stock up on doTerra items that are A+ in the classroom and teachers can use to stay happy and healthy over holiday break.

Need some ideas for your gift list?
Here are 3 Essential Gift Ideas for Teachers (or anyone on your gift list!):

Healthy Holiday Gift Basket
Spread holiday cheer, not germs! Put together an OnGuard Gift Basket for the teacher’s classroom. A few products that are great in any gift basket:
OnGuard Foaming Hand Wash/2 dispensers
OnGuard Hand Sanitizer
OnGuard Protecting Throat Drops
OnGuard Beadlets

Shop OnGuard

Appreciation is in the Air
Aromatic use of essential oils in the classroom is a great benefit to both teacher and students. Teachers can shift the mood and energy of the room with a couple drops of oil! The Petal Essential Collection makes a fabulous homeroom teacher gift, as it includes the Petal Diffuser, 5ml Wild Orange, and 5ml Lavender.

Does your child’s teacher already have a diffuser? Boost up their aromatic school supplies with doTerra’s Introductory Kit, which includes 5ml bottles of classroom favorites: lavender, lemon, and peppermint.

Shop the Holiday Gift Guide
Save the date: November 1st!! This is the day when doTerra’s Holiday items are available for purchase. A few gift suggestions that I love from the guide:

Floral Storage Case – The beautiful case will look perfect on any teacher’s desk. For extra credit, you could surprise the teacher and put a favorite essential oil inside the case.

Serenity Linen Mist – Wish the teacher sweet dreams after a long school day! Serenity is a blend that promotes calm and restfulness, so it is also a great choice to spritz around the classroom during rowdy afternoons.

Holiday Truffle Collection – If your child’s teacher has a sweet tooth, look no further than these delicious 70% dark cacao truffles. Two flavors: Turmeric, Ginger, Orange and Cinnamon and Cardamom.

3 OILS FOR BACK TO SCHOOL SUCCESS Wed, 28 Aug 2019 19:36:26 +0000 By: Heidi Sherwin, Yoga Teacher and Mother of 3

Backpack – check!
Lunch box – check!
Classroom Supplies – check!
Earlier bedtime – hooray! I mean, check!
Essential Oils – hmm, not sure!

Starting a new school year is filled with excitement and anticipation. From gathering school supplies and packable lunch items to making sure kids get to and from school safely, knowing which essential oils kids can use effectively may feel overwhelming.

Simplicity gets an A+ when I am juggling new routines and helping my three daughters prepare for a successful school year. Therefore, my family relies on a few tried and true Honor Roll essential oils to support us during the Back-to-School transition.

Here are 3 favorite oils that my family uses regularly:

Wake-up to the bright aroma and energize the mind! Wild orange promotes a positive mood, supports the immune system, soothes anxious feelings, stimulates digestion, and tastes delicious (good-bye sugary O.J.).

Usage Tips:
• Dilute 1 – 2 drops in lotion or carrier oil and massage on feet, belly, and/or spine to support immune and nervous systems.
• Add 4 drops to a diffuser during breakfast to increase physical and mental energy.
• Add 1 drop to water to boost child’s digestion (great before and after school).

Beat after-school sluggishness and pep up the brain for homework! Peppermint has a cool and refreshing aroma, which stimulates focus and concentration, relaxes tense muscles, opens airways to boost brain power, eases tummy discomfort (especially if there’s a lot of “holding” during school), and blends wonderfully with Wild Orange.

Usage Tips:
• Add 4 drops each of Peppermint and Wild Orange to a diffuser during after-school snacks and homework time.
• Dilute 1 drop in lotion or carrier oil and massage on tense muscles or tummy for digestive support.
• Create a 10ml roller bottle with 5 drops of peppermint, topped off with carrier oil. Roll carefully on child’s temples and back of neck to stimulate senses, soothe head discomforts, and improve focus.

Serenity, aka Restful Blend, combines Lavender, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Vanilla Bean. The aroma simply smells like relaxation and helps children fall asleep with more ease… Need I say more?

Usage Tips:
• Add 2 – 3 drops to kid’s bath to reduce restlessness and induce calm.
• Add 4 drops to a diffuser and use in the bedroom during nighttime routine.
• While tucking kids into bed, dilute 1 – 2 drops in lotion or carrier oil and massage on feet and spine to encourage peaceful Zzzzz’s.

Wild Orange, Peppermint, and Serenity will serve you and your kids in many ways. For extra credit, you may also like to try doTERRA’s Kids Collection or the OnGuard Collection for even more fabulous ways to rock the school year.

The Kids Collection includes 6 roller bottles of unique blends that ace the test when it comes to a well-rounded, safe for kids essential oils kit. Each blend was intelligently crafted to help support developing minds, bodies, and emotions. Bonus: the blends are great for 40+ year old kids, too! I love the effectiveness and use them personally on a daily basis.

doTERRA’s OnGuard family has been full of stellar students since the company started in 2008. Inherent to OnGuard’s success is the blend’s impact on the immune system, so you can have a natural, healthy alternative to maintain and support your child’s health. The warm and spicy aroma is great in a diffuser. The OnGuard family is vast – some of my favorites include the 10ml OnGuard Touch, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, beadlets, laundry detergent, and… who am I kidding?! The whole OnGuard family rocks!

Stocking up on these essential school supplies is easy peasy! A kindergartener could do it these days, based on how I see my kids scrolling and clicking around the iPad. Ha!
