Teacher appreciation day is coming up in our area in May. Let’s face it every day really should be a show of appreciation for teachers. I know what our son is like and if she has 20+ other children just like him on a daily basis by herself in a classroom…. well she is a hero in my book.
When I can catch him in the mornings, I try to get a dab of doTERRA Balance and Peppermint on his neck to help with attention, calming and centering so he’s ready to learn. His daily schedule is busy in First Grade and it’s tough for a 6 year old to sit as long as they do, with only 1 recess in the day and then come home with homework on top of it. His brain and body are like a little caged beast some days with all the energy he has crammed in that little body. Again, I can only imagine a room of 20+ more students just like him!
Some schools are incorporating natural products in the classroom as a way to help children and teachers through their day. I find this absolutely inspiring as I know how I feel when I use oils during my work day so I can only imagine how wonderful it would be in a classroom setting. I’d love to see it in our local schools!
This year for Teacher Appreciation Day I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands for approaching his school on this topic. I am gifting each of his teachers with the doTERRA Introduction Kit and a copy of an e-book listing out 101 ways to use these 3 oils. The majority of ways to use these oils would work very well in schools as well as in homes.
The e-book is available here for free:
The power of these 3 oils alone are incredible and worth having in every single home and environment. They are not expensive either ($20 wholesale) so it’s an easy and inexpensive way to try oils and see for yourself how beneficial they are in your daily routine.
Diffusing oils in the classroom and at home when doing homework can also support attention and focus. Children can become easily frustrated with homework making it more difficult to complete these tasks. Understandably so since so many schools have reduced or completed eliminated play time and recess to increase schoolwork that our children would have bottled up energy that comes out in the form of frustration.
Here are some recommended diffuser blends to help:
When it comes down to it, if you only had these 3 oils available you could be a true MacGyver of many situations, including probably fending off the “walkers” (Walking Dead reference). For those of you who don’t get the MacGyver reference below is some background:
