Back to school brings along its own set of challenges, more so because it comes right after the carefree days of summer.
Some kids rebel against the rigid schedules and the thought of sitting in the classroom all day. Others hate the thought of all the writing work and homework that is associated with school.
Even those who are excited about going back to school and meeting up with friends can find themselves dealing with other challenges, from catching a dreaded cold to tummy troubles.
And then there are others like my son who loves going to school but just cannot wake up in the morning.
Of course, all of this means stressful times for parents too. At times like these, back to school essential oils and blends can be a real blessing.
The best back to school essential oil blends for you would depend on exactly what you or your child is struggling with.
Back to school essential blends include those that help calm frazzled nerves, boost energy levels, strengthen immunity, and improve memory and focus. Of course, the best essential oils and blends to use for this purpose are those that are specially formulated for children.
Best Kid-Friendly Essential Oils & Blends
It is extremely important to exercise caution before using essential oils on children. Start by using only oils that are formulated for children. Plant Therapy’s KidSafe® line of essential oils are the safest to use on children.
Here’s why KidSafe essential oils are the number one recommendation for children.
The KidSafe line of essential oils and blends comprises only of oils that are proven safe for children. Any oil that came with any sort of caution with regards to kids was ruled out right away. No compromises were made in that regard. The result is a line of oils and synergies that are absolutely safe for use on children.
In addition to individual oils, you will find a variety of synergy blends in the KidSafe line. Each of the synergy blends is formulated to help kids overcome a specific issue.

Should You Use Back to School Essential Oils Or Blends?
This really is a personal preference. Both are good as long as you are using oils and blends formulated for children.
I find that essential oil blends are more effective. Blends contain a combination of components from different plant oils. These components work together to offer stronger therapeutic benefits.
I’ve listed the best choices for both, oils and blends, so you can choose whichever one you prefer.
