As summer ends and the kids head back to school, here some of the best essential oils for you and your family.
This post is co-written with contributions from Keris Binder, Young Living Essential Oil expert and all around amazing mother, wife and friend. The comments here are based solely on our experiences and opinions and not meant to diagnose or treat any particular ailment.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS AND WHY WE USE IT?
As my family navigate different seasons, I am always on the look-out for anything that will support our well-being and bring calm and peace into our home.
Perhaps, you too are searching for ways to foster more contentment, rest and joy for you and your family.
You want your home to be a place where your body and your soul find fulfillment and where joy premetes from every corner.
If this sounds like you then you should give Young Living Essential Oils a closer look especially if you have kids heading back to school.
These essential oils are amazing! I have used Young Living Essential Oils to help us get better sleep, to ease my indigestion, and to completely change the mood in my home.
When the kids get loud and crazy, I diffuse some lavender or peace and calming and they work in easing tension and creating peace.
I use Frankincense essential oils during my prayer time to deepen my sense of calm and connect to God.
I first experienced the healing and uplifting powers of Young Living Essential Oils when I suffered a major set-back in my running routine due to a knee injury. My doctor said that my leg muscle was pulling my knee cap in a different direction which caused severe pain. I thought my running days were over.
Until I started applying PanAway to my knee, before and after every run. It helped me so much and allowed me to not only train but successfully complete a half marathon and beat my PR (personal record).
While each person’s experience with essential oils is different, there is no doubt that these oils aid in creating a healthy, natural and balanced life.
WHY YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS?
There are so many different oil companies out there. Honestly, I have tried other oils before and none compare to the quality of Young Living Essential oils.
I could tell you that Young Living just celebrated their 25th anniversary and that their Seed to Seal® program emphasizes their committed to using only the purest ingredients in their oils.
Additionally, I could go on and on about how Young Living oils set the standard for the way oils are produced, packaged and distributed.
But to be honest, I love these oils because they do what they say they do and I trust what is in each bottle.
I am grateful that when my kids have a bug bite, a stuffy nose or are feeling anxious or cranky that I have a natural remedy to help them. It makes me feel so empowered that I can rub some oil on my knee and get relief and offer relief to my kids as well.
10 BACK TO SCHOOL ESSENTIAL OILS
I am stocking up on my oils to get us all ready for back to school and beyond.
Because change is a-coming in our house this school year. 🙂
My oldest is off to a new middle-school with an earlier start time, we are hiring a new babysitter to pick up and watch my two younger kids after school and all the kids are starting new sports program and activities.
Add to that the emotions to having a new teacher plus making new friends and it can be a recipe for emotional uncertainty and tension.
But with plenty of prayer and a dab of oil I will be ready.
Here are 10 of Keris’ favorite back to school oils.

5 OF MY FAVORITES
I received my Premium Starter Kit last May and instantly fell in love with these oils. I have my favorites that have helped me so much and that I rarely go without. All of these are included in the Premium Starter Kit as well – score!
1| LAVENDER – I love the smell of this oil and spritz a little on my pillow before going to sleep. I also diffuse it after dinner to get everyone ready for bed. It smells so good.
2| FRANKINCENSE – As mentioned before, this smokey smelling oil is wonderful during prayer time. Just dab a little on my forehead and I instantly feel calmer.
3| PANAWAY – Got minor joint pain? PanAway is my go-to whenever I want to train or run. It works great when giving or receiving foot rubs as well. Ahhh, sweet relief.
4| THIEVES – This makes my home smell amazingly clean – even when it’s not. I use it all.the.time. The starter kit comes with the cleaner you can use in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry.
5| VALOR – In addition to Frankincense, I also use Valor during my prayer time or when we are reading together to create a sense of peace and calmness.
