For the last two weeks I’ve had the song “Goin’ to school! Goin’ to school! Goin’ to learn the Golden Rule!” stuck in my head. If you weren’t a 2000s emo such as myself, you may not be as familiar with this hidden track by Mae.
Anyway, I know a lot of people, children and adults, who have returned to school this September. I decided to put together a list of essential oils for students. Whether you are enrolled in formal education or conducting your own self-directed learning, here are the essential oils to help you succeed and how to use them.
Essential oils for students to…
Enhance Focus – bergamot, cinnamon, fennel, lemon
Stimulate Creativity – bergamot, frankincense, lemon, rose
Relieve Headaches – chamomile, lavender, peppermint, spearmint
Combat Fatigue – peppermint, spearmint, patchouli, rosemary, sage, vetiver
Reduce Stress – bergamot, cedarwood, chamomile, frankincense, lavender, patchouli, rose, sandalwood, vetiver, ylang ylang
Manage Feelings of Anxiety – bergamot, frankincense, lavender, ylang ylang
Methods of Use
Topically – dilute with a carrier oil approximately 7-25 drops of essential oil to 25 mL of carrier oil to make a roll on dispenser or massage oil
Inhalation – put into the air with a diffuser, buddha’s breath, diffuser necklace or bracelet
Safety note: Children between 6 and 12 years old should use half the essential oil as for adults. Teenagers over 12 can use the regular adult concentration.
I’m thinking I will make this “Essential Oils for” into an ongoing series. I want to hear your requests for who to compile a collection of essential oils for. Please leave ’em in the comments. Thanks!
