It’s back to school time and while I’m not actually going back to school (this is the first time in 22 years that I haven’t had a “first day of school” either as a student or a teacher…so weird!) I know I have a lot of teachers who read my blog so I thought I’d share how I’d be using oils at school if I were still teaching.
I didn’t start using essential oils until a week before I went into labor so I haven’t gotten to try them out in a school setting. I SO wish I had though! I always (well, until I got pregnant and couldn’t stand most smells) had a Scentsy warmer running in my classroom/library. I loved making it smell nice and I think it felt more homey. I would have loved to use my diffuser so that it would have been beneficial and more than just an enjoyable scent.

If I were going to be diffusing oils in my classroom, these are the ones I would use.
After gym class: Purification to combat that sweaty kid smell. Shew. That is not a pleasant aroma, y’all. I wish I could say that’s limited to middle school but this is not the case.
To keep the air clean: Thieves for sure! I’d use this one regularly, especially during the winter.
During a test: Did you know Peppermint and lemon help to support cognitive function? So cool! I’d for sure be diffusing those a lot, especially during tests, to try to help my students do their best! (can you see why I totally wish I’d had oils earlier?!?). Plus they are both very uplifting oils.
So, who’s ready for a great school year? What oil would you like to use most in your classroom?
