Their First Place & Your Empty Nest

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

When our children reach that age of moving out to college or to their first home away from home it can be a difficult time for parents. It’s exciting to see them ready to take on the outside world but as parents we know that not all those adventures are fun and it’s simply just hard to see our little children be grown adults. We hope we have taught them all that we know to help guide them but know they will make their own mistakes.

While we will always be there for our children or now young adults as it is, we can start then off soundly with necessities to help them setup their new home. Sure it is fun to help them pick out fun accessories but we can also help them start out with good natural support to protect them.

Stocking Up Their Home

If you have a child going off to college this year or moving into their first apartment or home here is a great little gift idea that is practical and loving.

In a new laundry basket fill it with natural household and personal care items that will set them up with all they need. In addition to basics like paper towel, toilet paper and sponges, I recommend including these doTERRA items:

  1. OnGuard Concentrate Cleaner

  2. OnGuard Detergent

  3. Petal Diffuser

  4. Balance Deodorant

  5. Serenity Bath Bar

  6. OnGuard Toothpaste

  7. OnGuard Mouthwash

  8. OnGuard Essential Oil

  9. Lemon-Lavender-Peppermint Trio

These items not only give them essentials needed to setup their new home but start them off with pure natural products that will protect and serve them. Many times even though they are excited to be moving out they are also homesick and in a new place that can end up meaning they get sick. The OnGuard oil provides the critical immunity support to protect them in their new environment and helps it smell a little bit like home.

There are over 100 ways to use just Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint essential oils so including these 3 oils in their basket gives them a strong cornerstone that is economical and useful for cleaning, personal care and health needs.

Supporting You

Watching them move out and helping them setup their new place is a bittersweet moment as a parent. We are proud of them and sharing in their excitement but also sad our little child is now grown. There will still be days of watching them grow but it won’t be the same.

As parents we also need support during this time for the emotions and sadness that we experience at these changes. I highly recommend regular use of doTERRA Balance for its grounding support but also from the emotion aromatherapy oils Console. Together these oils provide that stabilization that we can support this change and enjoy it while also recognizing our heart hurts a little at the same time.

Preparing our children to be on their own is a difficult phase. We can support them and ourselves however with natural products that will protect them and support us through this transition.
