How i’m supporting my beautiful boys using essential oils for back to school
If you’ve got kids starting a new school or heading back to school like me you’ll probably be feeling all the the feels…
This week we’ve had all the BIG EMOTIONS – from the anticipation and excitement of starting big school for my eldest and heading back to preschool for my youngest to complete overwhelm today.
Archie my first born baby started kindergarten and as excited he’s been all holidays, the realisation of going from his small, nurturing preschool of 30 kids to the vastness of a Primary school with over 200 kids kicked in last night as he was going off to sleep.
“Mum I don’t want to go to kindergarten tomorrow, I was really sad and scared today.”
WOW that took me by surprise!!!
When I picked him up he seemed fine and said he’d had a great day.
So my heart broke, I felt worried, cranky, sad but jumped into comfort mode. I let him talk through his feelings and I gave him lots of cuddles.
Enter PURE PLANT GOODNESS from Mama Nature, the all comforting.
I rolled Console Blend and Frankincense on his heart, forearms and diffused Lavender Peace.
Console is one of doTERRA’s blends developed to support emotional health, it’s the comforting blend. (and yes Mama has been wearing too, I went to bed with it all over me)
Frankincense is the king of oils and contains powerful constituents to support all the things. It was calling me so I intuitively used it. It make everything better.
Once he was asleep I made a special mist for him & promptly found some ‘Back to School’ diffuser blends for the morning and after school come down.
BOY YOU GOT THIS BODY MIST
6 drops of Aborvitae
8 drops of Balance
6 drops Juniper Berry
3 drops of Vetiver
I chose these it’s for their grounding, soothing and calming properties. It’s a delish woody aroma always helps my beautiful boy to feel supported, connected, happy. I can see it in is eyes as he inhales the goodness.
MORNING DIFFUSER BLEND
3 drops of Citrus Bliss
3 drops of Bergamot
3 drops of Frankincense
AFTERNOON DIFFUSER BLEND
3 drops of Lavender
3 drops of Wild Orange
3 drops of Frankincense
This experience has me thinking back to when I started school and how that little 5 year girl felt and what she needed to hear.
Yes I’ve been in tears as I felt exactly how Archie is feeling; I remember feeling so small, alone and sacred. I even remember wetting myself and having awful dreams of turning up to school naked!
WOW – our children are our biggest teachers and healers.
I know that by supporting my beautiful boy with lots of love, listening to him, going a little easier on him and using this protocol of oils, not only is he covered emotionally but I’m looking after my inner child and loving that 5 year old self.
So there you have it, it’s only day two and all of this has happened! I am forever grateful that I have my doTERRA oils, it means that I have support at my finger tips.
Who wouldn’t want that?!
