Here are three must-have back-to-school essential oil recipes you can make in just a few minutes to send your kids off to school healthy and strong!

Back to school essential oil roller and spray recipes

I’ve been using essential oils since 2011, the same year I started this blog! I started off using them to make my own natural cleaning recipes (which you can see here) and then eventually started to try to use them for me and my kids.

Operative word – tried. Yeah, I didn’t know much about what I was doing, and I bought the cheapest essential oils I could find on Amazon and in stores and tried many of them, but they didn’t work, so I went back to using them for cleaning and kinda gave up. That is until a friend of mine told me about Young Living Essential Oils and how much more powerful they are than other oils. So I bit the bullet and got one of their Premium Starter Kits, and the oils worked that very night right out of the box on my kids and their colds. I was hooked!

So now I use them daily, partly because I just enjoy good-smelling things so much, but mostly because they work. 

Back to School Essential Oil Recipes

So here are some recipes I’ve made to use on my kids to keep them well! When other kids at school are dropping like flies, don’t be surprised when yours are still standing strong!

Essential Oil Safety

Essential oils are highly concentrated oils from plants, so they are powerful, which is good! But when you are first starting with oils, it’s very important to dilute the oils you apply to your skin. So you’ll notice that these rollers are diluted with carrier oil to make them safe to use.

A carrier oil is not the same thing as an essential oil. Essential oils are the therapeutic, healing part of the plant. Carrier oils are fatty oils from plants, nuts, and seeds that are moisturizing. Essential oils can be drying to the skin.

My Favorite Roller Bottles

To keep your immunity strong – roll on the spine morning and night.

When you need extra strong immunity support, roll on the sinuses, throat, spine, and bottoms of feet 2-4 times daily.

For older kids, teach them how to roll it on the bottoms of their feet morning and night.

About Thieves Essential Oil

Thieves is a powerhouse oil for immunity because it contains strong oils like Eucalyptus, Lemon, Cinnamon, Clove, and Rosemary. It continues to be one of Young Living’s most popular blends because it works so well to support healthy and strong immune and respiratory systems! Thieves come in the Premium Starter Kit.

About Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon is known for its purifying and cleansing properties. It’s also really good for digestion, energy, concentration, and focus. Use it in your home cleaning supplies, skin products, and for immunity. Lemon comes in the Premium Starter Kit.

About Oregano Essential Oil

Oregano is a powerful oil that can really fight unwanted microorganisms in our bodies. It is highly recommended for any roller you make for staying healthy and well! It is a hot oil, which means it needs to be diluted well, or it could cause skin irritation. If your child has very sensitive skin, do only 1 drop or replace it with a different, more gentle oil.
