Back To School – Keeping the Immune System Up

This second post is about keeping the kiddos & everyone in the family healthy. 

In my home, when the kiddo gets sick, all things come to a stand still. So, when I found a few things that have worked this past year when he has been in school for the first time in his life, we have stuck to it like nobody’s business.

PrintThe first is Thieves EO. No one in our home leaves without either applying Thieves to our foot or taking a drop of Thieves Vitality with honey or NingXia Red everyday. Talking about NingXia Red, did you know that you only need an ounce or two of NingXia Red to stay healthy? We do this diligently.

I personally also need my shot of NingXia Nitro around 3:00 pm to get through the rest of my day still staying focussed. I also encourage my hubby to do the same instead of drinking coffee or tea at that time of the day.

The other things we do unrelated to oils is eat a healthy breakfast everyday – connecting as a family is important every morning before we part ways, get adequate rest, exercise. Ok, the latter two sometimes gets compromised, but since the intention is there, we at least strive for it. A healthy mind and body is needed for being ‘Mighty And Strong’.

Back To School Series – Rise and Shine

I am doing a ‘Back to School’ series in the next up coming weeks.

The first one is about mornings. I don’t know about you, but waking up in the morning and getting a child / children ready for school can be a challenge. I only have one toddler to get out of the house and invariably we are fighting being late for his toddler program. Since he is in school only for a few hours, I need him to leave on time so I can maximize my working day when he is away.

Morning blues can be tough. Can oils really help with that? You probably know what I will say, right? YES….

PrintOils like Joy, Lemon and Peppermint can serve as a wake up in the mornings. I love diffusing Lemon or Peppermint when I am getting breakfast ready or getting the kiddo dressed. Adding Lemon EO to my water can also be refreshing and cleansing.

Combo of Lemon and Joy in the diffuser is uplifting and creates a positive attitude.

Try it….
