Homeschooling and Essential Oils was not on my radar at all when I first began homeschooling 15 years ago. Oh…..but how I wished it was.
Since we have incorporated Essential Oils in our homeschooling and in our overall life for health and wellness I can’t began to tell you a difference it has made across the board.
What I have come to understand about Essential Oils is that they are the *life blood* of a plant, shrub, tree or bush.
God did it!!
He is AMAZING in what HE provided for us at the beginning of time.
Essential Oils are nothing new at all. They have been around since the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Europeans, Africans and Chinese have used them for centuries for health, beauty, fragrance, and spiritual practices.
There are also many references to essential oils in historical texts, which signifies their importance and value in history.
Particularly the Bible!
Our family has used Young Living essential oils for every aspect for our health, homeschooling for focus/attention, clarity, cognition, brain function and grounding.
Thankfully we have been able to *retire* various medications we were on and to grow our family business – Shine Bright Alternative Health.
What exactly are essential oils?
Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Some people like to call essential oils “nature’s living energy” because they contain unique constituents that provide a host of benefits.
Most essential oils are extracted from plant sources using steam distillation and are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried botanicals.
Essential oils are volatile, which means that the scent of the oil rises quickly into the air.
They are also versatile, with a wide variety of uses. Some people use essential oils to enliven an environment, support different body systems, or just for their great scents. However you choose to use essential oils, chances are someone else has tried that same use in the past. If you still don’t know where to start, rest assured that each essential oil is labeled with instructions for use.
How can Essentials Oils help promote wellness and health in your life as you homeschool?
I’m not a doctor nor a scientist at all. I am a wife, homeschooling mom of eight children, owner of a small scale farm and a director of several organizations.
However, I can share how essential oils have assisted my family and many homeschooling families as we homeschool our children to seek to live above the wellness line.
Basically, having added essentials oils into our lives the focus and attention that my children has gained has been huge. The cognitive development has been obvious to my husband and I. Their ability to be grounded during the day has been a sweet relief. We have been able to go *green* almost completely within our home. Cooking. Cleaning. Health Care. And care for our animals on our farm.
What body system does your family need assistance with:
Looking for some GREAT information to add to your science?
Then the chart above is a great place to begin and learn about the body systems. 🙂
The challenge to YOU -MOM or DAD is to research and learn which essential oils you should use to help *support* that body system!!
Are there Essential Oils better than others?
Yes! Essential Oils that are Therapeutic, 100% Pure, that uses quality seeds, no fertilization/chemicals used for it’s care and quality tested……there is only ONE company that I have found provides all of this AND they are the world leaders in essential oils. Young Living. No other essential oil company has a Seed to Seal process. This is actually a trademark of Young Living.
As you consider bettering your family’s health and wholeness and enhancing your homeschooling experience I suggest Young Living’s Premium Starter Kit or Everyday Oils. (You can learn more about the Premium Starter Kit at http://www.UCHUnlimited.com choose the tab Essential Oils and Homeschooling).
