Guess what time it is?! It’s back to school time! How are you feeling about that? So many things are different for back to school this year. I know some of us are looking forward to it (get those kids out of the house would ya?!) and some of us are not so much (hello virtual school where my kids will be staring at screens all day, or back to school with masks and social distancing). No matter what side of the fence you are on or if you are perched right on the middle, I have some awesome back to school diffuser blends for you to help you navigate these waters.
I won’t delay, I know we are all super busy getting back to school, so here are my top six favorite back to school diffuser blends you will want to try asap!
Rise and Shine
First up, let’s start the morning off right with this Rise & Shine diffuser blend. This back to school diffuser blend combines the awakening and energizing oils Peppermint and Orange. I suggest start diffusing 3 drops of each of these about 15 minutes before waking up those sleepy kiddos. The awakening aroma will fill the air so when they roll out of bed their brain is already being triggered that it’s time to wake up!
We all know parenting isn’t all sunshine and roses all the time. And sometimes us moms need a little emotional help, let’s not deny it. So the next back to school diffuser blend I have for you is one that is uplifting and encourages positive feelings and emotions. Citrus oils are naturally uplifting, then add in the Ylang Ylang and Clary Sage which both help to create a calm environment. I know there are a lot of times in my life when I need to just breathe and feel calm and uplifted. This is a great blend for that.
Now that our kids are back in school, we kinda want them to stay there lol. Let’s help support those immune systems with these immune supporting essential oils. The next back to school diffuser blend consists of Thieves (a super blend of essential oils, you can read more about that here), Lemon, and Oregano.
Did you know essential oils can help support brain function?! Yep, it’s true. So our next back to school diffuser blend focuses on Peppermint, Orange and Rosemary essential oils which provide natural support for brain function. This is great to diffuse when studying, or working on homework or even virtual school.
Another great back to school diffuser blend is this homework helper blend. Just like the smarty pants blend, this diffuser blend focuses on oils that help support your kiddos brain. This one consists of Frankincense, which is great for grounding and focus, Rosemary which is good for memory, and Citrus Fresh that is energizing and uplifting so they aren’t dozing off during homework time.
After a long day at school, we all need to wind down and get some peaceful sleep so we can wake up and do it again the next day haha! This back to school diffuser blend has Lavender, Cedarwood, and Vetiver which all promote relaxation and restful sleep. Start your diffuser with this blend about 15 minutes before going to bed so the sleepy-time aroma fills the air in the room and as soon as your kiddos head hits the pillow they (or you) can start to relax and get a nights worth of peaceful sleep!
And there you have it friends. Some tried and true and loved by us essential oil diffuser blends for back to school! Please let me know if you have any other back to school diffuser blends that you love!

Still Need Oils?
I do have to say one more time, I ONLY USE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS. They are 100% pure, no pesticides touch the crops, no additives to the oils, no watering down, distilled at the right time of year for the specific plant, distilled at the right temperature, for the right amount of time (no short cuts here). To read more about Young Living and their seed to seal guarantee go to www.seedtoseal.com and you will see why I only use them. PLUS, I cannot speak to the quality of other brands and can’t guarantee they will be any good at all.
