Ever had one of those days as a homeschool mom where the kids are balking at their schoolwork, with one wanting to jump on top of the table and the other fall asleep doing her math, and you just want to run back to bed and take a nap? Yeah. Me, too.
I'd find it hard to make it through a full homeschool day without using essential oils on both my kids and myself.
The first thing I do is start the diffuser. I love to use oils that are grounding. I don't need kids so calm they are asleep, but I don't want them bouncing off the walls either. I need them balanced. I need myself balanced, too, so I don't turn into that crazy homeschool mom. Something uplifting, but not too energizing, grounding, but not sleep-inducing...that's what I want in the diffuser. Some great examples are Balance, Citrus Bliss, Motivate, Cheer, Lavender/Peppermint/Wild Orange, Frankincense.
The second thing I do is rub some InTune (the Focus blend) on the back of my kids' necks. There's a spot at the base of the neck right where there's a little indention that's the perfect place to apply essential oils that support the brain. A great focus blend helps the kids settle down and get to work. Sometimes (many times!) I need to use some focus blend to help myself stay focused on the home and not on Facebook. Anyone get that? :-)
The third thing I do is take my vitamins. Lifelong Vitality and Mito2Max keep me from feeling the need to run back to bed for a mid-afternoon nap. Getting all the nutrients my body needs is helpful. My 14 year old takes a full dose of vitamins, too. I'd have younger kids on the children's vitamin. I wish I could say that we grew our own food and ate every single thing organic, but I can't. We live real around here.
