Essentials Oils for Back to School: Smells like School Spirit

Today we’re continuing our back to school series. Behind? Here’s your review cheat sheet:

Ok, now class is back in session. And we’ll continue our back-to-school series with a pop quiz. (Nope, we’re not messing around;) Quick: what’s one of the easiest, most efficient ways to use your oils?

Tick, Tick, Tick...Time’s up!

If you said “diffusing” gold star for you! Just remember: Effective + Easy + Cost Efficient = Diffusing.

Even if the smell is not as strong as commercial candles or waxes, you and your family are getting wonderful benefits. That’s because your diffuser breaks down each oil into micro particles that stay in the air for hours. That’s getting your money’s worth – and with minimal effort!

Here are our top oils to diffuse throughout a busy school day. Enjoy (and pay attention, there could be another quiz next week)!

Diffuser Oils for the School Year

 We believe diffusing oils is one of the best ways to brighten your family's day!

Essential Oils for Your Morning Routine

Wake up and smell the oils! Try these two refreshing blends to begin each day with a bang.

Joy Essential Oil Blend

Joy was one of the first oils we ever shared on the blog. That’s because this blend has been bringing us Joy for a long time. Diffuse to deflect early-morning grumpies and promote emotional balance.

Motivation Essential Oil Blend

Start the day (or study session) off with the power of Motivation. It helps support emotional balance and ward off fear and procrastination.

Mood Support

Beat first day (and beyond) jitters with these mood-boosting oils. Enjoying aromatic benefits on-the-go is easy, you can:

  • Apply a few drops to your hands, rub them together and inhale deeply
  • Wear an oil as a perfume or cologne
  • Wear a diffuser necklace or bracelet

Stress Away Essential Oil Blend

Stress Away is a wonderful everyday perfume. It offers much-needed emotional support with a zesty, lime-infused scent.

Tip: To use as a perfume, apply oil with a roller ball to your neck, wrists and inside your elbows.  

Valor Essential Oil Blend

There’s really no way to talk about this blend without reviewing a vocab word first.

Valor(n): strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter what is laid before them; personal bravery.

Now you know why we love this oil?! Apply it to the back of the neck, temples and/or inside the wrists. It can be a great companion for all those moments of uncertainty.

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood supports emotional balance and promotes a calm mind. It’s perfect for the school year: it helps maintain concentration and tackle the unknown.

Homework Time Oils


Give your students a natural boost with these oils. They help support your brain’s ability to focus.

Peppermint + Lemon

Peppermint can energize and focus your attention. Diffusing peppermint with lemon oil is one of our favorite study tips. Plus, these oils come with the Premium Starter Kit, so newbies, this is great recipe to start with!

Brain Power Essential Oil Blend

This oil is very high in sesquiterpenes (yes, that is another vocab word, look it up!). Sesquiterpenes play a role in dissolving petrochemicals (these are bad things, look it up!) and therefore increase normal receptivity in the brain and increase the amount of oxygen received. More oxygen to the brain = a happy, more functional, less foggy study session!

Bedtime Oils

Smell that? It’s time for bed! Create a peaceful routine to end the day with these relaxing oils.


This is a VERY popular oil for aiding relaxation. We love to diffuse it and apply it to the bottom of our feet before bed. You can even put a couple drops on your pillow for continued benefits.

Tranquil Roll On

Put yourself and your kids in a tranquil state with this easy to use roll on. Apply to the bottom of the feet, back of the neck and/or temples. ZZzzzz

Peace & Calming Essential Oil Blend

Bid farewell to stress and welcome relaxation with Peace & Calming II. This oil is gentle enough to diffuse through the night, even for little ones.
