With school starting this week, it has come with a whirlwind of emotions; excitement, unease, anxiety, joy for kids and their mama’s. Maybe your child is starting school for the first time and you are so nervous for this next step and realizing they aren’t your baby anymore.
Does your child struggles with transitions and going back to school is bringing out some uneasy emotions and behaviours? Is your child in a new school or taking a new bus?
As a parent are you struggling with new routines, making lunches everyday and having battles at bedtime?
I see all you mama’s excited for your kids to go back at school. Let the routines happen again but also having the mom guilt for being happy that they are back so you can have a bit of relief and also sad that summer has come to an end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I’m having an overwhelm of emotions and working through my own transitions in life I use essential oils as one of my tools to help me through it. ⠀
Aromatherapy helps with all the emotions. When using essential oils aromatically (inhaling) you typically feel the impact within a few minutes. If you apply topically (to your body) it takes about 20-70 minutes to enter your bloodstream and for you to start to feel the impact.
One of my favourite blends I created is a mixture of tangerine, clary sage, cypress and frankincense. The blend has different dilution rates for children compared to adults so keep this in mind if you are creating this yourself.
Clary sage represents clarity and vision. It encourages to remain open to new ideas and experiences. Using this oil aids everyone in getting focused for the day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Cypress represents motion, flow and transition.Cypress works in the heart and the mind. It allows us to have emotional growth, flexibility and be trusting of the process. September is always a month of transition and this is the perfect oil to help with the transition back to school. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Frankincense represents truth. It shields the body from negative influences. It provides us with enlightening, love, and wisdom. It protects us from worry and overwhelm. A lot of times we are concerned about how things are going to happen and worry for the sake of worrying. Frankincense helps us to release those worries. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tangerine represents cheer, creativity and happiness. It helps us to access the creative energy inside. It teaches us to enjoy life and the process. It is full of optimism. WE all could use more cheer, creativity and energy in our life! This will help your child get their creative juices flowing for the classroom! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will use this blend in a rollerball and apply it to my neck, temples and wrists. I also use it in a diffuser blend and it is a great way to fresh the house while helping the rest of the family work through their emotions 😉

Stay strong! You’ve got this!
