New Essential Oils Accessories

16-Core-Vitality

The Core Vitality Case is a pill organizer, Vitality™ essential oil holder, and accessory case all in one!

Its eight-section clear plastic pill box holds seven daily doses of Core Supplements™ vitamins and any other supplements in your daily regimen, while the eighth section holds extra Clear Vegetable Capsules, so you have them whenever you need them. The case also features a convenient pill stand to hold vegetable capsules steady while filling them with your favorite Vitality oils.

The case holds three 5-ml dietary essential oil bottles, each with their own sturdy elastic band to hold the oil in place. We also included an interior pocket to hold additional supplements and accessories such as pipettes and an exterior zippered pocket for your business cards, cash, keys, and more. Its fabric and faux leather construction is durable enough to keep up with your busy life.


17-Organizer

This one-of-a-kind essential oil display system allows you to arrange your oils for easy identification and storage. Designed with convenience in mind, it is customizable to your needs—whether that’s to fit it in a drawer or cabinet or to create a beautiful display for all to see. Its two trays can hold 22 oils and can be configured to lie flat or converted into a multi-tiered standing display rack. The trays are also easy to position side by side or front to back. If you need to save space in a drawer, simply overlap the trays to reduce the width. Whatever your storage needs are, the Essential Oil Bottle Organizer is a great fit for every home.

See the product information guide here.

Focus Help During Homeschool or Homework Time!

Focus Help with Essential Oils

 

Focusing on schoolwork can be difficult for many kids. Thankfully there are some options you can use to help with this! Below you can read about some of the things we do to help with focus, both for my kids and for me!

  • We have used Clarity since my very first Essential Rewards order!  I diffuse this in the schoolroom sometimes, and I also have a roll on bottle I use on myself when I am doing my own work and having trouble focusing.
  • Peppermint is diffused often in our schoolroom, and we love to just smell it straight from the bottle.
  • A new favorite during school time is a blend of Orange, Lemon, and Northern Lights Black Spruce.

Homeschool Diffuser Combo -5990

  • Our favorite roll-on recipe for calming and focus help is a blend of Lavender, Vetiver and Cedarwood.  Even I use this daily!

  • Other options are Brain Power, which we have not personally used yet, and GeneYus which we have but my kids can’t get over the intense smell.

Back to School ~ Bedtime Routine

Print

 

Ahhhh, bedtime.

I admit, I love bedtime.

For myself and for my kids.

I even wrote an entire post about our favorite oily helps for bedtime here.

More Practical Ideas…

  • Put a diffuser in your child’s room and begin running it before you settle in for bedtime to get the room nice and cozy with a calming aroma.
  • Share bedtime oil options with your child and ask which one s/he prefers. My daughter does not like some that I love. Her favorite bedtime oil is actually Stress Away with Peace & Calming coming in a close second. My boys both like Peace & Calming. I like Tranquil, Rutavala, Lavender, Cedarwood, and Peace & Calming.
  • Make special roll-on bottles for your kids so they each have their very own. My kids really took ownership when I did this and enjoyed having their own bottle of their favorite.This also allowed me to dilute as necessary, since they tend to slather a little more than I would. I diluted more than the recommended amount because of this!

Need some extra roll-on bottles?

There are many different roll-on bottles you can choose from. We choose to use an inexpensive bottle so we can make many different ones easily.  These are the exact bottles we have used for over 3 years. We also use the roller fitments {item # 4578} from Young Living and use our empty YL bottles with those.

Roll On Bottle

Here are some other roll-on bottle choices {click here to see post if you are reading via email} from Amazon…

 

 

 Need an extra diffuser?  We recommend this one as an inexpensive way to get another diffuser. Not only is it inexpensive, but it is actually my very favorite bedroom diffuser. This is an inexpensive way to get a diffuser in each child’s bedroom.

Back to School ~ Keeping Kids Healthy

Mighty and Strong Kids with Essential Oils

 

Even as homeschoolers keeping my kids healthy and well is a battle. We use NingXia Red and Thieves as mentioned in the graphic above. I am so very thankful for these two products especially. We add NingXia Red to our daily smoothies for the kids, and give them more if we see wellness slipping. Diffusing Thieves is another favorite around our home.

See the graphics below for even more information about Thieves and NingXia Red! These graphics are from a “Get to Know Your Starter Kit” series {which is why they have numbers in the corners}.

      Back to School ~ Rise and Shine with Essential Oils

      Rise and Shine with Essential Oils

       

      As you may know, we are homeschoolers so we don’t have to get up quite as early as many families whose kids go to school, but we still deal with morning grumpies.  I must admit, much of the grumpiness in our house is rooted in me.

      Some Practical Ideas…

      • Put a diffuser in your child’s room and begin running it with a blend they enjoy when you go in to wake them up.
      • Start a diffuser going in your kitchen or central living area so all can benefit from the uplifting aroma in the morning.
      • If you homeschool like we do – get that diffuser going in the area where you homeschool!

      In addition to the recommended Joy & Lemon combo, I also recommend trying Stress Away, Orange, Peppermint, Citrus Fresh, and/or Grapefruit. Don’t be afraid to give a combo a try. Open all of the bottles together of the oils you are thinking of diffusing and hold the bottles together in your hand about 6 inches under your nose and inhale deeply.  This will give you a good idea if you will like the combo in your diffuser. Much of diffusing is trial and error to find what you enjoy!

      Need an extra diffuser?  We recommend this one as an inexpensive way to get another diffuser. Not only is it inexpensive, but it is actually my very favorite bedroom diffuser.
