I’m really excited to share these notes with you! You are a passionate caregiver and the middle-of-the-night snuggler to your children -- whether it’s your actual littles or those that you get to care for in your life. Being “Dr. Mom” is a responsibility none of us take lightly, and that title isn’t exclusive to just moms. It includes fathers, grandparents, foster parents, and anyone who makes those tough decisions on what’s best for your family’s wellness! 🌱 I’ve rounded up some of our favorite must-haves and kid-safe essential oils to help care for kids throughout the school year.

Friend, this is SO important! Essential oils are most effective when we are intentional and consistent. 

Young Living’s essential oils do the following:
-reach every cell in your body within 20 minutes when applied topically to the body
-support our bodies in flushing toxins
-have the capability of passing the “blood-brain” barrier
-work on emotions via the limbic system of your brain when inhaled
-release emotional trauma, relax and clear the mind
-act as powerful antioxidants
-increase atmospheric oxygen
- promote clean air and allow us to ditch the toxins

We talk about Thieves so much because this blend is a powerhouse of oils that are fighting for you every time we use it! 
Also available in a convenient roll-on! Keep it in your kitchen and set a reminder:

〰️ Roll Thieves daily down the spine and over little feet at breakfast
〰️ Diffuse this oil to clean the air and refresh your space
〰️ My favorite do-it-yourself roller combo for wellness support is 10 drops each of Frankincense, Thieves, and Lemon in a 10ml Roller bottle, fill the rest with a carrier oil

Add these three supplements to your morning routine! Kids love the taste and often ask for them, even when the adults forget.

〰️ MightyVites: Complete multivitamin (chewable tablets)

🌱 Whole-food multi-nutrient support for happy kids! Fortified with Orgen-Kids (100% certified organic and all-natural vitamins and minerals) and free of synthetic nutrition.

〰️ MightyPro: Prebiotic & Probiotic (single-dose packet of powder)

🌱 Formulated to promote digestive health and a happy gut! Doesn’t have to be refrigerated and kids LOVE the taste. Easy to add to yogurt or smoothies.

〰️ MightyZymes: support and assist the digestive needs of growing bodies and the normal digestion of foods

🌱 Why are enzymes important?? All cells require enzymes to survive and function. They help your cells communicate well with each other. Help keep cell growth, life, and death under control (this is SO important!) Are needed for more than 4,000 biochemical reactions in the body. 

Schooltime transitions and coming back from holidays can be hard on kids. Keep Stress Away and Peace & Calming handy! These are two of my faves!

〰️ Show your kids how to apply Stress Away to help with butterflies

〰️ Add a drop of Stress Away behind the ears before heading off for the day

〰️ Spray Peace & Calming on a favorite stuffed animal or lovie in the car before they hop in

〰️ Diffuse Peace & Calming after school to help wind down before homework

〰️ Scent Training is a powerful tool. Basically, you diffuse a scent or have them smell a bottle when they are calm and happy. After a while, that scent will bring those calm happy feelings anytime they smell it. WINNING!

No matter what, we have to clean those hands! Leave the ick at school. Traditional Soaps, Cleaners, and Sanitizers are full of endocrine-disrupting chemicals and more. Send these two products to your kid's classroom. Their bodies will thank you!

〰️ Thieves Hand Sanitizer -- clean and purify their hands as soon as they get in the car! Keep one in their backpack for on the go.

〰️ Thieves Foaming Hand Soap -- we keep one at every sink! Once they are in the door, shoes off & wash up!

This household staple is a huge part of our daily routines! When kids help out with chores, I want to know that they are safe when using our cleaning products. 

〰️ Give the kitchen table a quick wipedown before homework

〰️ Add a dash of household cleaner to the wash to refresh a favorite stuffed animal

〰️ Soak plastic toys in the bathtub once a week with a cap of cleaner
Ningxia Red is a favorite! Think of it as a berry puree, they love the taste! 🍒 Easy to mix with water to make “red juice” or they can drink it straight from a pouch. 2oz a day is all they need!

〰️ Skip the sugary drinks at snack time and offer them this nutrient-dense drink
〰️ Made from the Chinese Wolfberry, support their overall wellness with this superfood
There are several outside factors that may lower our immune response and, therefore lower our ability to fight off disease and infections. A few are - sleep deprivation, sugar, processed foods, improper diet and lack of fatty acids, stress, lack of exercise, as well as not drinking enough water.
