Back to School--Ideas, Recipes & Supplies

"Whoa, whoa, I gotta go....back to school" (Grease 2 anyone?!? LOL) So, it's that time. In Phoenix my kids are in their 4th week already, so we've been thru the back to school shopping, haircuts, and the boo-hooing that I do. Right before I do the flying leaps across the living room... HAHAA!! I wept and I leapt, and here's a little collection of some essential oil essentials for back to school with links to buy goodies on Amazon.

My new favorite thing is making these rollerball recipes! I've been an oiler for a few years and I've been guilty of over oiling. My friend Terrie Martin is one of THE most knowledgeable people I know in this field and I learned from her, that we can actually set ourselves up to become sensitive to oils by using too much. And it's easy to do, Neat is fine for LOTS of oils LOTS of the time, but to decrease the risk of reaction dilution is a great idea. Not to mention that our oils go MUCH further when we dilute. Here are some goodies:

I thank Tracey Campbell of TLC One Drop At A Time for the many recipes and graphics she shares, including this Focus blend. I am truly blessed to be on her team! I love this recipe SO much and like to go heavy with extra citrus. Someone asked me about exact number of drops and I say, add what you like until it smells so good your eyes roll back in your head!

Another thing I want to share is that ANY roller recipe can be adjusted to a diffuser recipe and any diffuser recipe can be made into a roller. Remember that!! Check these out...they look AWESOME!

I love roller bottles even more because of this duct tape idea. I get to beautify, personalize and protect!! Hmm, I mentioned shatterproofing, but I'm also protecting my EO from light, too. #Winning! (Duct tape = insurance! LOL)

One thing I am already missing...is THE SLEEP!! I do like myself better when I get up early and get things accomplished, though. A bedtime routine helps immensely. I'm taking away my own naughty night time habits one by one. LOL

Isn't THIS a great idea? Big thanks to Bottle of Thyme! Be sure to visit & like her page. She's AWESOME!

"Such a great idea from a teacher.

She used the small/short, plastic spice containers that have the holes in the lid. They are a great size and it doesn't matter if they get dropped. She put drops of YL essential oils on a cotton ball and placed one in each container. She created a variety of them.

She had students who loved certain scents, but despised others. She would let them choose favorites to have at their desks. Some kids didn't want to have them ever. Others loved having the personalized oil at their desk as much as possible. So it was nice to have options for them. The favorites were lemon, peppermint, Joy and Thieves. The possibilities are endless."

If the plastic jars are hard for you to come by, they're available on Amazon, here:
