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

So, school has either already started or is starting this coming week. Things get busy for everyone involved. There are a few things that I like to keep handy for our our family since my son is also starting a program this coming week. Yikes, when did he get big enough to go to toddler program….

Immune Booster Roll On:

Thieves : 10 Drops
Frankincense : 10 Drops
Lemon: 10 Drops
Lavender : 10 Drops
Oregano: 5 drops (optional)
Coconut Oil / Olive Oil / YL’s V-6 blend – 20 drops
Roller Bottle

Mix all the eo’s in a roller bottle, fill it up with a carrier oil and use it before your child goes to school, day care or to the play ground.  In the winter months, coconut oil with solidify, so it might not flow through the roller bottle. So, you can use the V-6 blend that YL has already made or Olive oil which will not solidify.

Thieves Hand Spray

Thieves EO – 10 Drops
A few pinches of salt
Distilled Water
Spray Bottle

Take a spray bottle, add a couple of pinches of salt, add 10 drops of Thieves, and some distilled water. Here is your own little bottle of sanitizing spray. I often use either this, the Thieves Spray or the Waterless Purifier  that YL has on my hand, my son’s hand after we are done with the play ground and he wants a snack. I use it on our hands when we use public transportation. It is a wonderful replacement to the chemical purifiers available in the market.

OK, now for some calming oils that I like to use…. I don’t know about you but having to leave the house at a given time with a toddler in tow can be stressful. So, I have this blend that I like to take with me. It is also safe for kids…

You can just use Stress Away which is a great blend on its own. I never leave the house without StressAway.
