The bittersweet back-to-school season is upon us again. You might mourn the carefree days of summer, but relish getting some time back once the kids are off to school. It can be stressful for both kids and parents to transition into back to school mode, with the changing schedules, homework, and earlier bed times. But going back to school doesn’t have to be such a grueling task, and it most definitely doesn’t mean the fun has to end either!
To make sure the first days of school are an A+, we’ve compiled some of our favorite back-to-school essentials to help the whole family get through it with ease!
- Clear up your Skin troubles with Blemish B’Gone Roll-On
We all wish we could ditch our acne as quickly as our 9th Grade boyfriend at the high school dance. Now you can - enter Blemish B Gone, a skincare saviour from Escents’ wellness line featuring a blend of Tea Tree Oil (indigenous to Australia and long known to kill bacteria and soothe skin naturally), calming Lavender and other healing aromas that nurture your skin and prevent future breakouts. Apply promptly to the problem area and watch in wonder as you go from geek to chic. Now if only high school had been that easy!
- Give Lice the Boot with Lice B’Gone Leave in Conditioner
Lice B'Gone Leave-In Conditioner has been carefully formulated to repel, prevent and treat lice while conditioning hair. Pure essential oils also coat the hair and help soothe itchy scalps. Use Lice B'Gone as soon as eggs are detected, as it can take 3-4 weeks for lice eggs to mature and hatch. If you find lice in the hair you will need to keep using the spray for 3 weeks, along with a lice comb, to be sure you remove all of the lice and any eggs that haven't hatched.
- Keep Your Cool with Head-Aid Roll On
New classes, new schedules, and less sleep can cause headaches during the beginning of the new school year. Luckily, our Head-Aid Roll-On is great for relieving migraines and headaches naturally! Made with cooling Peppermint and Lavender essential oils, it also increases energy, relieves nausea, and eases muscles tension.
- Stay Alert with Focus Essential Oil Blend
Made with the refreshing and energizing scents of 100% pure Rosemary and Grapefruit essential oils, our Focus Aroma blend improves focus and concentration by stimulating the mind and improving memory and alertness. Whether you’re a student or parent, our Focus Aroma Blend will help get your head back into the game in no time!
- Remember with Rosemary
Rosemary is one of our favourite essential oils here in the office. It’s amazing at stimulating mental activity to increase memory. Rosemary is also great at minimizing stress, by lowering the stress hormone cortisol. Stress impedes your ability to focus, affects sleep, food choices and more; all things you need to be healthy and successful. If you are studying for a final or preparing for a big presentation, diffuse this oil while you’re reading up.
- Soothe with Peppermint
Peppermint is such a powerful essential oil for mental stimulation. It’s fantastic for relieving nervous tension and pain, and is best used when applied to the temples, and sides of neck. Roll-on peppermint essential oil when studying or whenever you feel a headache coming on for quick relief!
- Power up with Pine Needle
Pine Needle is an oil you definitely need to add into your life this fall season. Not only is it a mental stimulant to reduce fatigue, but it’s a powerful immune system booster to fight off those cold and flu germs. No need to get sick and tired this back to school season! Diffuse Pine Needle on your desk to stay healthy and alert.
