Back to School Anti-Stress Aromatherapy Blend
Essential oil recipe to reduce stress
With the start of school we must address the issues of stress. Children feel the effects of stress and are usually less equipped to deal with the resulting emotions and health issues that surround this condition. If the words ‘wake up, time to get ready for school’ result in morning mayhem, why not diffuse essential oils in your home to calm the morning rush. Its a great, toxin-free way to start your day!
You can also create an aromatherapy blend that can be added to an inhaler or an item of aromatherapy jewelry that can be inhaled throughout the day as and when needed. This method is wonderful when added to a warm relaxing bath at the end of a particularly long and stressful day.
- 15 drops Bergamot essential oil
- 15 drops Lavender essential oil
- 15 drops Marjoram essential oil
- 15 drops Lemon essential oil
Mix in a 2ml bottle. Inhale directly or blend into a carrier oil for massage at one drop of blend to 1ml of carrier oil. Try adding 4-10 drops of the blend directly into a bath (use 1/2 the amount for children). Inhale deeply and enjoy!
To make this aromatherapy bath even more beneficial, blend two tablespoons of honey with one cup of very hot water, add your blend of essential oils and pour this mixture into the running water of your tub. Soothing to the skin and the nerves!
