It’s back to school Monday! The weekend has passed and the kids are all back in class. In this post you will find some essential oils for teachers.
Teachers become teachers because they want to make a difference in our upcoming generations. (At least, that’s my perception of the job) Lets face it! Being a teacher can come with a lot more then dealing with lesson plans, activities and grades. Every teacher faces their day to day frustrations, irritations, and challenges. I have put together a collection of oils and products that I feel are must-haves in your big teacher desk! In addition to my Back To School Essentials post, I’ve elaborated and added a few more! Enjoy!
Joy – Diffuse in class (if your permitted) or before class to enjoy a drama free classroom. You can also wear this as a perfume to help you stay positive throughout your day.
Purification – I know you’ve got one – A stinky kid! If you don’t, then I know you’ve got some stinky gym shoes, a stinky locker, or if your really lucky, a stinky surprise food item left for months in a desk! Put a few drops on a cotton ball to help freshen the air. You can place the cotton ball wherever its needed.
Stress Away – Teaching can be stressful! Use Stress Away to reduce any teaching related stress.
Peppermint – Need to keep your mind sharp? Use this fresh scent to open your eyes and get your brain working. You can add a drop to a glass of water and drink throughout the day. This will also help support digestion, as well.
Thieves – We all know kids are walking cesspools! Keep an extra bottle of this on hand just in case. Okay, maybe that’s a bit too excessive but one drop in your morning tea will help support your healthy immune system. Also, Thieves is available as wipes, spray and hand purifier! Get some!
Aroma Life – If you get nervous before presenting information to your colleagues or at a board meeting, apply some of this oil over your heart. Doing this will energize your life force helping you to “Come out of your shell”
Lavender – Everyone loves sleep. Teachers need restful sleep so they can teach our children. If you love your teacher, buy her a bottle of lavender. If your the teacher, you will want this oil in your collection! one drop on a cotton ball placed between your pillow and case is all you need. You can make a room spray or a linen spray. You may even diffuse for a restful night.
Lemon – If you need some extra eye opening in the A.M. Try a drop of lemon in your glass of water. Remember, use glass; not plastic!
Frankincense – If you find yourself in a bad mood use a drop of frankincense. It is considered a holy oil and was given to Jesus as a gift. This oil will help bring you closer to go and in turn enhance your mood. If you need some spirit in your life, this is a must have!
Valor – This oil is especially useful to high school teachers. You have to have confidence in yourself otherwise your students will walk all over you. You don’t want to be the “Cool” teacher because you are a total pushover. If you need some extra confidence anywhere in your life this is your oil! I enjoy placing one drop in my cupped hand and directly inhaling. This oil smells amazing and I truly believe it helps restore confidence.
That concludes the oils found in my previous post. Don’t leave just yet! Here are a few other great products you may want to try!
Tranquil – This oil comes in a roll-on and it is regarded for its calming and relaxing properties. It is a perfect addition to any post work day routine.
USB Diffuser – This handy dandy little accessory is a must have for anyone who works at a computer desk. This little baby puts out just the right amount of scent to comfort your work space with whatever needs you have that day.
Ningxia Red – this is a powerful antioxidant drink that will give you everything you need from head to toe. This is a blend of blueberry, aronia cherry, pomegranate, and plum juices, natural steiva extract, grape seed extract, pure vanilla extract, and orange, yuzu, lemon, and tangerine essential oils. Give your body what it deserves – to be nutrient infused!
