Coping with Change


It’s that time of year again…back to school. Such a bitter sweet time. Many of us long for the days of summer, but also crave the structure that the school year brings. As we transition into this season of routine, it can often lead to a bit of stress. Stress that comes from a schedule full of school and activities and then of course all the sickness that seems to come along with it. 


In my family we no longer fear this transition because we are armed with CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils that allow us to manage our stress levels effectively and keep everyone in the house healthy. Here are some simple ideas to get you through the season:

  • Getting kids to sleep on time can be a challenge. To aid in this process, rub 1-2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil on their feet prior to bed. They will be relaxed and sleeping before you know it. Not only will your children love it, but their room will smell great too!


  • Several children get nervous about going back to school. To help calm these fears, a drop of dōTERRA Peace®blend on the pulse points will do the trick.  If necessary, you can also rub a drop of DigestZen® on the belly to calm any upset tummies. 


  • Students having trouble focusing?  Roll dōTERRA InTune® on the brain stem and forehead to enhance focus and boost memory.


  • Mom and Dad, Exhausted from driving all around town? Take one drop of Peppermint Essential Oil and one drop of Wild Orange Essential Oil in the palm of your hands. Rub hands together, cup hands over your nose/mouth, and take several deep breathes. You will find yourself invigorated by the aroma and ready to tackle the rest of your day.


  • Is stress leading to head or neck tension? Rub 1-2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil on your temples and the back of your neck. Enjoy the soothing tingle as you feel the tension melt away.


  • Feeling frazzled?  Try 1-2 drops of dōTERRA Balance® blend on your pulse points and/or feet. The grounding aroma will help you get your ‘balance’ back in no time! 


  • Nothing causes more stress than when sickness enters the house and infects everyone in it.  My number one recommendation this school year in an effort to be proactive and avoid sickness is dōTERRA On Guard®.  Rub 1-2 drops on your children’s feet every morning before going to school. The kids will love it and you will find yourself spending much less time and money visiting your family doctor J

When it comes to essential oils, quality is key in trying to achieve a therapeutic benefit. dōTERRA essential oils are stringently third party tested to guarantee that they are pure, safe and free of all fillers, pesticides and foreign contaminants.  Unfortunately, the majority of essential oils on the market do not meet this standard. Want to learn more about using essential oils safely?
