Avoiding the Back to School Cooties
By Terri Bonin
Happy August friends! The summer winding down and the kids are getting ready to go back to school. Are you camp YAY or NAY? I’m undecided. Regardless, it can feel a bit melancholy right? Hopefully, you’ve had an amazing summer with lots of fun memories and amazing tan lines. I thought it might be best to help y’all brace yourselves for the tidal wave of germs, stress, and all the feels heading your way with back to school looming in the distance.
That’s why I…
…put together your back to school emergency kit. Armed with a FOCUS roller blend to help your kiddos with homework, a Hair Defense Spray that will help keep any head critters away (if you get my drift…), and a yummy Thieves Apples immune-boosting snack.
The Focus roller blend has vetiver, lavender, and cedarwood in it which are all amazing brain-boosting oils to get those brain cells firing off properly again after a fun summer off. Just roll it on the back of the neck and enjoy!
The Hair Defense Spray has lavender, purification, and a tiny bit of sea salt in it. Spray it on the scalp daily before school and keep those heads critter-free!
Last but not least the Thieves Apple immune-boosting snack has thieves vitality in the recipe which is AMAZING for health and wellness. Seriously, the legend of this recipe says that during a great plague thieves would put this blend of spices in their handkerchief and breathe them in while they robbed dead bodies. Yikes and ummm, ewww! They got caught and in exchange for their freedom they had to give up the recipe for what was keeping them healthy and safe while the PLAGUE was killing off everyone else. I don’t know if that’s true or not but it makes a great story and the thieves blend is my go-to for all matters of sickness.
Back to school can be a bit of a stressful time but hopefully, these recipes will make the transition smoother for you and your family. Don’t forget to douse yourself in stress away whenever you need it most. 😉 With this arsenal in your back pocket, you should have no trouble getting back into the swing of things over the next few weeks.
