The Routine. The first few days we started with Lavender. We begin each day by Diffusing, then it is time for foot massages with Wild Orange and before we head out the door a drop of Lavender on the back of the neck. The kids carry a small bottle of Both Wild Orange and Lavender in there back packs just in case they have stomach issues or need calming or hurt themselves while at school. Now they are good for the day.
When I return home, I difusse Wild Orange as it is uplifting to the body. When I pick the kids up I have a spray bottle with water, peppermint and Lavender that I spray on there hands as they get into the car before we leave so nothing from school come home with us. When we get home, for a little pick me up, we diffuse peppermint and wild orange and at homework time it is Peppermint and Rosemary, which helps reduce nervous tension and fatigue. When it is time to calm down for the evening we diffuse Lavender with Lemon (kids favorite). Then another foot massage with Wild Orange which protects against seasonal and environmental threat.
For Extra Defense during the school year, fill a roll on bottle with Fractionated Coconut oil or any vegetable oil of choice and put 6-8 drops of Wild Orange, Rosemary, peppermint Essential oil. Rub on children's feet at bedtime and in the morning before they head off to school. It is a very special bonding moment for parent and Child. My children love the foot massage and being touched and having that time with me.
For Hand Sanitizer fill a 4oz. Aluminum Spray bottle then put 10 drops of Lavender and 10 drops of Peppermint. Spray on hands for hand sanitizer. Also works great for head tension, sunburns and air freshener.
