Nurturing Aromatherapy for Back to School

attention parents + teachers

It has been and sadly continues to be an alarmingly challenging time with your kids and students in and out of school and at home. We feel for you and want to help provide you with some tools to help you get through this difficult time.

Daily rituals that include intention-based aromatherapy can help YOU and your children cope with this constantly changing world. The state of the world has created an unstable foundation in which we truly don’t know what the next week may look like. 

As a parent or teacher, taking care of yourself first and foremost, is very important. Children can sense when an adult is stressed, anxious or upset. By caring for yourself in small but impactful ways, you set an example to the young ones around you. Lead by example and then teach others how they might also care for themselves. Sometimes this can be as simple as taking a minute to center and ground yourself with an Anointing Oil before you speak or intentionally spraying an Aura Mist around the space to cultivate a safe and encouraging environment. So whether you’re getting ready to send your child off to school, preparing to home-school or anticipating the arrival of your students, utilizing aromatherapy inside and outside of the classroom can be highly beneficial for yourself and the youngsters around you.

Ease Anxiety and Fear

We all know someone who doesn’t like school. Maybe you were that kid as a child? Disliking school and disengagement in school can come from a myriad of reasons. School is difficult for many students and learning and testing can be a trigger that causes stress and anxiety. This fearfulness can come from being around a lot of people, learning disabilities, and social anxiety. Students of all ages, back in classrooms, can also face challenges with their peers, as well as pressure from their teachers and parents. This in itself is a huge weight, especially for those who may be about to graduate or finish a program. It can be a serious issue when it comes to cultivating a positive, encouraging, and successful learning environment. Before learning can take place, the focus should be on the well-being of the student, cultivating trust and assurance that comprehension will follow. Instilling a sense of peace, protection, and serenity is the best way to combat feelings of stress and inadequacies.
