Back to School with Essential Oils

And just like that, summer is almost over! Fall means that back-to-school time is upon us. With so much going on, many of us get carried away in the hustle and bustle of life. Yet it's important to be in the right state of mind and support our wellness in this new season. Love & Lemons Life Essentials is here to help you feel good about returning to school or work.

As summer draws to a close, we enter a season of reflection and renewal. The first day of school represents new opportunities and new knowledge. For many of us, these routines bring excitement and anticipation. However, for some students, these are days of anxiety and angst. It can be stressful to think about learning new things, moving cities, attending a new school, or adapting to online learning. The month of September marks a transition time. Which means adapting to new schedules, different bedtime routines for younger students, a new environment, and new responsibilities.

We would like to support you by sharing our top tips, essential oils, and DIY blends to make at home. Everything you need to help your family start the school year right!

How can essential oils help?

Having a comforting aroma wafting through the air can give that little extra prep you need.

Focus + Attention

Essential oils such as Lemon, Sweet Orange, Rosemary and Peppermint can help boost focus during school hours, homework, study time, and exams.

Emotions, stress + anxiety

Long days can be emotionally exhausting, just like the stress and anxiety that come with learning new stuff, meeting deadlines and expectations, financial stress, or a new environment. Essential oils can be the perfect companion to ease negative emotions and feel more balanced throughout the day. Essential oils that can be useful are Lavender, Sweet Orange, Black Spruce, Ylang Ylang, Roman Chamomile, Bergamot, Citronella, Frankincense, Ho Wood and Palmarosa are few examples.


Sleep is vital to stay emotionally stable and mentally focused. Poor sleep can negatively affect students' performance not only in the classroom but after school when work needs to get done. Both Roman Chamomile and Lavender can be incredibly soothing at bedtime.


Back to school means more germs! Essential oils can contribute to stronger immunity and help keep germs away.
