It’s back to school time for many of us who teach and have kids! That means back to the classroom where we are exposed to germs, viruses, and pathogens. Since starting with essential oils my family has seen our own health greatly improved by using natural alternatives in our daily lives. Having a three year old who is in day care and being around lots of sweaty bodies myself as a yoga teacher we are constantly exposed to germs. I have seen how using essential oils like Thieves and Lemon can build a healthy immune system to help protect my family from germs. When we do get sick I find it helpful to have essential oils on hand to apply topically or diffuse. I've seen our own recovery time from being sick much faster than years when we didn't use oils. Building good hygiene habits is always a wise approach.Here are some tips to protect yourself and the ones you love with Thieves and Lemon (both come in the Premium Starter Kit):
To help sanitize and harbor germs found around the house and in the classroom grab a handheld Thieves Spray. This is a must have for any diaper bag or car!
Place a drop or two of Lemon essential oil on your hands to sanitize when you aren't able to get to a sink to wash hands.
Make your own soap at home with Thieves essential oil.
Castile soap is made from olive oil, so it’s very gentle, but still cleans really well!
1 part Dr. Bonner’s Castile Soap
