Essential Oils for Back to School

Love it or hate it.....

it's here once again.....

back to school..... 

back to books.....

back remember the rest? 


Summer is winding down and getting ready to head back to school is in high gear! 

This can be a very stressful time for parents! 

Getting back into the swing of schedules, carpooling, homework etc. is a little overwhelming.

Not to mention that underlying anxiety the school years brings as we watch our kids struggle to focus. 

There's another challenge!

Keeping our kids well!

Schools can be a germ fest, so many kids get sick the first 2 months of school. 

Have no fear, Spark Naturals is here…to help make this school year a success for all with our Back to School Pack!

We've paired two of our absolutely best blends; Jeddy’s Attention Blend and Shield Protective Blend! We've also made it our Item of The Week for the week of August 11-17. 

This is a good deal! The 5ml bottle of Jeddy's blend is normally $25.20, the Shield is $10.08, add in the roller bottles and the case and you have almost $40 worth of product for under $30.

Diffusing Essential Oils in the Classroom

Whether it's public school or homeschool, your classroom can be a much healthier, calmer and focused place this year with a few suggestions about using Essential Oils in the classroom.

Diffusers in the classroom are becoming a valuable and commonplace addition. 

Why? What is Essential Oil Diffusion?

Diffusion is any method or device that disperses essential oil molecules into the air. It’s the most popular method of using essential oils. 

Spark Naturals carries a great line of diffusers. The Mirage is my personal favorite. I love the way the light shines from underneath and reflects off the surface where it rests. Check out all the beautiful diffusers here.

How they work:   This technology produces a cool, fine mist in which essential oils are broken into tiny particles and delivered into the air.

Advantages:   Not much oil is needed, only about 1-5 drops of essential oil. They're easy to use, easy to clean and lightweight.

There are lots of good reasons to diffuse essential oils into the air in a classroom:

•    add natural fragrance
•    kill air born germs and treat sickness
•    achieve a calm environment
•    energize and uplift
•    offer better concentration for tests

Some ideas for using different oils and blends in the classroom:

Lavender, Jeddy's Blend, Zen: 

Diffuse to achieve a calm environment.


Diffuse during testing to help students focus and during the after lunch "sleepy time" to perk up those drooping students(and teachers.)

Citrus Blends such as Wild Orange and Bergamot: 

Diffuse to uplift, energize and also as an anti-viral agent.

Shield Protective Blend: 

Diffuse to sanitize the room, kill pathogens and keep the environment healthier. You can also make a sanitizing spray with Shield Blend and Water to spray desks, etc.

You don't have to worry about allergic reactions either, since Pure PharmaGrade Essential Oils are extracted from the plant and do not contain allergens. Actually, diffusing Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Respire(respiratory blend) will provide relief for those with allergies and asthma.

·                     How Germs Impact Education

- Nearly 22 million school days are lost annually due to the common cold
- 52.2 million cases of the common cold affect Americans under age 17 each year.
-Infectious disease accounts for millions of lost school days and cost the US $120 billion a year

Let's face it, sadly, most teachers in most schools either won't or aren't allowed to diffuse in the classroom. You can send you child with their own personal terra cotta diffuser necklace. Spark carries five different ones. You can find them here.  These terra cotta necklaces are only $9, and with coupon code PATTI you get 10% off that price.
