I cannot believe summer is winding down…to tell you the truth, I'm a little bit in denial about the whole summer's end/back to school thing. But, back to school season is upon us, like it or not, and I'm in the throes of getting my kids ready for school and bracing myself for the different family routine that will come with that. In the midst of all the crazy, I got my Simply Earth subscription box and I was super excited to see the oils and blends were back to school themed. essential oil blends for back to school

Four Essential Oil Blends for back to school

In case you missed last month's post, I shared a recipe for DIY Hand Sanitzer and talked about some ways I use oils in my home. I am loving the Simply Earth subscription box service. Each box contains four oils as well as recipes and supplies to make some fun and practical things you can use in your home.

I'm sharing four essential oil blends for back to school today and the timing couldn't be more perfect. Back to school means early mornings and getting used to the homework routine. Here are four ways to use oils in your home for back to school:

Back to school always throws me off because I'm getting back into that weekday and back to school routine after the lazy days of summer. Here are four ways I use essential oils in our house for back to school. I hope you like these four essential oil blends for back to school|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals

Rise and Shine Diffuser Blend

  • 6 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 3 drops of Coffee Essential Oil

Drop essential oils into the diffuser and start the day off right! If you keep a diffuser in our near your children's rooms, this is a good one to mix up in the mornings as everyone is waking up and getting their bearings. I always wake up at least 30 minutes before my kids have to get up. That allows me to drink a cup of coffee and get a jump on getting myself ready for the day before I have to deal with my kids' wants and needs…see also one of them is a serious grouch in the morning. I'm hoping the rise and shine blend will work for him.

Do Your Homework Diffuser Blend

  • 5 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 3 drops of Focus Essential Oil
  • 2 drops of Coffee Essential Oil

Drop essential oils into the diffuser when you need a pick-me-up. Our schedule is different every day because of sports and youth activities but normally, my goal is to knock homework out ASAP. Place your diffuser near where your kids do their homework. My kids are going in to second grade and I really don't like the fact that kids in early elementary school bring home homework. I've read online that a lot of schools are doing away with or lessening homework, especially for younger kids. I hope my kids' teachers believe that.

Get Focused Roll-On

  • 5 drops of Focus Essential Oil
  • 10 ml Almond Oil

Drop the essential oil into a 10 ml roll-on bottle. The 10 ml roll-on bottle came with the Simply Earth subscription box but you can also find them here. Fill the bottle with Almond Oil and secure roller ball and cap. Roll gently between your hands to mix. Roll onto the nape of your neck or behind your ears when you feel the need to focus. Focus is a blend of Frankincense, Sweet Orange, Cardamom, & Eucalyptus Essential Oils.

Immune Boosting Diffuser Blend

Elementary school is one giant petri dish, y'all. That's why I love this immume boosting diffuser blend. I put this in the diffuser in my kids' room while they sleep.

  • 7 drops of Copaiba Essential Oil
  • 5 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 3 drops of Coffee Essential Oil

I absolutely loved this month's Simply Earth subscription box. There was so much included…everything to make all of the above projects, plus a few more goodies.

  1. Does coffee have the ability to over stimulate? I’m curious. I’ve never thought of using it before. I love using Focus for mental clarity and the citrus EO’s really help me to wake up and cheer up. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. I am really not that adventurous while trying out new products. But the oils included in this subscription box seem quite appealing. Will most definately try thks subscription box

  3. I always wanted to try out the latest things in my life. Oil included here seems to be interesting and I am very excited to try this.

  4. Well I can’t wait to try coffee EO in some of my blends now! I wonder if coffee would smell nice in a cleaner.
