Essential Oils in the Classroom

I am a teacher, and I loved using essential oils in my classroom.  Even though we are remote learning this year, I still plan to use essential oils to help my daughter and myself this year.  Some of my picks to diffuse are:

  • Brain Power – This one smells good and I like to diffuse it during test time.
  • Thieves – This oil blend has a history of keeping away illness.  It smells great, too.
  • Eucalyptus Globulus or Radiata – This one is great for stuffed up noses which invariably come around in the winter.
  • Peppermint – This one really helps a headache, and I love the smell.

Some other products I wouldn’t be without are:

  • Thieve Waterless Hand Sanitizer – I love this hand sanitizer.  It has the great Thieve scent and adds in Peppermint as well making a great combination.

and

  • Thieves Household Cleaner – This will be used to clean up those areas where we work most often to get rid of the germs AND to leave behind a great scent.

Essential Oil Workout Spritz

After you’ve finished your daily workout, try this spritz to give you a pick-me-up and carry a revitalizing scent with you.

In a glass spray bottle, combine the following:

  • 7 drops of Bergamot essential oil
  • 7 drops of Lavender essential oil
  • 7 drops of Lime essential oil
  • 3 drops of Peppermint essential oil
  • 3 ounces of distilled water

Shake well before spraying.  Storing the bottle in the refrigerator will make this a “cool” treat to follow your workout.

Also, if you have some achy muscles after your workout, or anytime throughout the day, us Cool Azul pain relief cream.  I love this cream and have used it quite often for my sore muscles.

The above recipe and more tips to perk up your at-home workout can be found at The Lavender Life.
