Recently, I have been getting many requests from mamas inquiring about oils that can help school age children with focus and calming. So, I thought of writing something about it. Essential Oils are a source of viable support to the human body, mind and spirit. It does this by restoring natural function without adverse side effects. It corrects and restores proper cellular memory and can be emotionally balancing.
Of course, this in combination with clean food and environment will be the ideal set up for restoring natural balance in the system. So, definitely look at gut health and diet while also using the oils to support the child.
Here are a few essential oils recipes for Focus and Calming
Focus Blend: Cedarwood, Lavender, Vetiver and Frankincense
Cedarwood EO – 15 drops
Lavender EO – 15 drops
Vetiver- 15 drops
Frankincense – 15 drops
Carrier Oil – 60 drops ( V-6, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil)
Roller Bottle – 1
Mix all in the roller bottle and apply on the temples, brain stem or big toe once a day or as needed. You can also diffuse this blend – just reduce the quantity to 2 drops each.
Other Diffuser Options:
Rosemary EO – 3 DropsLemongrass – 3 Drops
You can apply these oils to your temples, wrists, behind the ears or the big toe. These oils are mild enough to apply directly with or without dilution.
So, in summary, here are some ways of using all the oils that I have listed above…
- Cedarwood, Vetiver and Lavender on the back of the neck, Brain Power on the temples and Peace & Calming at night
- Valor on the big toe, on the temples especially during test days.
- Focus Roller on the temples and back of the neck during the day. Lavender of Peace & Calming diffused at night.
- Diffusing Lemon and Peppermint for focus.
- Lavender, Vetiver and Cedarwood on the big toe.
As always, just a reminder that these are only my opinions and the only Essential Oils company that I trust enough to use on me and my precious family is Young Living.
As my quest to form a community and connect people of similar interests towards health and wellbeing continues, I have been teaching at least one or two classes a month. This week, I taught a class on Monday night for an organization that I belong to called Holistic Moms Network.
One common theme I heard from most of the participants in my classes is how they often don’t feel like they have choices when dealing with supporting the wellbeing of their families. Having EO’s and oil infused products gives people that very option.
Sitting with the small group of moms made me think about how isolated we are, especially as parents. It made me long for a sisterhood of moms and a place where we can share our joys, frustration, concerns and most importantly, lean on each other for support and wisdom.
Teaching these classes has given me a great venue for doing just that. I love bringing people together where we can share our wisdom, support each other through difficulties and celebrate our successes specifically in the realm of healing and feeling empowered. Gathering a tribe of like minded people who can support each other is fun.
It reminds me of this wonderful blend that YL makes called “Gathering”. It is a blend of Galbanum, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Cinnamon Bark, Rose Otto, Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Spruce. It is very soothing for the chaos and stress that we deal with everyday. It helps gather our emotional and spiritual forces so that we can achieve a greater unity of purpose. It creates harmony in the body, mind and soul by releasing negative patterns and bringing in new ones.
I apply Gathering on my wrists every day setting an intention of gathering my emotional and spiritual selves to be in alignment to focus it towards my higher purpose.
I love sharing my love of oils with people to support them on this path to optimal wellness. I feel very grateful for the women who attended and shared in my class on Monday night. Blessings to you all in your journey to wellness and joy.
