It’s the time of year when kids are heading back to school. New routines and re-establishing good habits can be a struggle for students as well as parents, especially if you are juggling work, kids, and family. These 4 back to school essential oil blends will give you the tools to bring some calm and help you relax during the transition.

Using Crystals in Your Blends

Each of these recipes has some suggested crystals to pair with the blend. While these are not necessary, they do enhance the effects of the essential oils. You do not have to use the stones recommended for each blend; feel free to exchange them if there is one that appeals to you. You can also simply wear or carry these stones with you if you don’t have small pieces to place in the roller bottles. To purchase crystals, check out my crystal shop!

General Instructions

For each blend, add the essential oils listed to a 10 mL roller bottle. (I love the bottles from Whimsy and Wellness!) Then add crystals, if using. Top off with a neutral carrier oil of your choice. Try fractionated coconut oil or sweet almond oil. Affix the roller top, and you are ready to roll!
