Back to School | Natural DIYS for Back to School Success! | Essential Oils for Kids

Hey there! It's that time of year again! The kiddos are back in school and most days can seem really hectic and crazy! Today I wanted to share a few easy and all natural DIY's to make life a little easier, your kids a little healthier, and help set them up for their best year yet! Let's get into it! 

DIY All Natural Hand Sanitizer

Up first we've got an all natural yet powerful germ killing hand sanitizer recipe! This recipe uses thieves essential oil which has been shown to kill germs and help prevent the spread of the cold & flu ( Check out my blog post all about what essential oils are and essential oil uses if you're new to essential oils)! You can either leave this in your kiddo's backpack ( if you know they will remember to use it ;) ) or you can have them use it upon drop off and pick up!

What you'll need:
Travel size squeeze bottle (I got a three pack from Dollar Tree)
3 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel
1 tbsp water
1/8 tsp Vitamin E Oil
5 drops Thieves Essential Oil ( Young Living essential oils starter kit & membership )
Mixing bowl
Funnel (optional)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and add to your squeeze bottle, if you have a funnel I would use it to make this a little easier.
There you go! Super simple and all natural! Just shake before each use and apply as normal.

 I also created a free printable label you can use! It may be a little large for the bottle. So if  that is the case, I recommend you save the image and then make it fit to size on a word document. Free Printable- Hand Sanitizer Label

DIY Lavender Night Spray 

If you've got a kiddo that has trouble sleeping the night before school, maybe due to excitement or even nervousness, either way this sleep night is perfect! Lavender has been proven to be very relaxing and great to help you fall asleep. 

What you'll need:
1 tbsp baking soda
6 drops Lavender Essential Oil 
Mixing bowl 
Funnel (optional) 

Mix the lavender essential oil and baking soda in a separate bowl then take the funnel and pour the mixture into a spray bottle and fill the remainder with water. Shake before each use and spray one or two spritz on your child's bed right before bedtime! 

DIY Homework Helper Roller Ball 

This roller ball recipe is perfect to help your kids focus and is a perfect aid for homework time! Honestly this recipe is great for mama's too when we need to focus! 

What you'll need: 
Roller Ball 
3 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
4 drops Orange Essential Oil
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil 
Carrier Oil to dilute ( Coconut Oil or Olive Oil is perfect) 

Add the essential oils to the roller bottle and fill the rest with the carrier oil of your choice. Apply lightly to your child's forehead right before homework time!  

DIY Lice Prevention Spray 

Now this recipe is probably one of the most important! With back to school comes a whole lot of people your child is now exposed to on a daily basis and lice is a scary thing that spreads like wildfire. So use this preventive spray as an extra line of defensive!

Directions: Add essential oils in the spray bottle and fill the rest with water. Spray your child's hair with 2-3 sprays every day before school!
