Back to School with Intention-based Aromatherapy

setting intentions for a new school year with Aromatherapy

It’s that time of year again; back to school! Our family and friends are headed back into classrooms as students and as teachers. Although the value and significance of education is always at the forefront of our collective conscious this time of year, the anticipation of learning and teaching can be daunting and stressful for many people. Intention-based aromatherapy can help in many ways. Using essential oils can ease stress and cultivate a calm atmosphere, as well as to inspire focus, concentration, and motivation inside and out of the classroom.

Applying focus in School

Students of all ages are troubled with the same concentration and focus issues that pupils have had since the beginning of time. With today’s instant gratification of technology at our fingertips, staying focused on school work, papers, and books can be tough.

Banditos oil blend is a staple in my classroom! Not only does it smell divine ( my students tell me it smells like Christmas), but it purifies the air and adds a lovely touch to the room. Highly recommend!
