Safety and Usage: How do we safely use oils?
First, we need to share some important information. Young Living oils can be used in a variety of ways.
1. AROMATICALLY (Diffusing)
Using oils in a diffuser has a positive effect on your emotions. If you need a little motivation to get your tests graded or you’re looking for something to calm and focus your students, your diffuser is going to be your best friend.
Ready for a little science lesson? When you inhale oils, the essential oil molecules travel through the olfactory bulb, trigger the limbic system in the center of the brain, and stimulate the amygdala.
The Amygdala is the integrative center for emotions, emotional behavior, and motivation. This is why diffusing oils is effective and efficient in helping to support positive moods for you and your students!
Applying oils topically is another option. You can apply the oils to specific vita flex points. Specific points in your ears, hands, and feet are linked to specific emotions, systems, and organs in the body.
Stimulating these points helps the associated emotion and systems. For example, the vita flex points for the brain are the thumb of the hand and big toe of the foot.
Other places are critical, too: apply to the back of the neck, the wrists, or even a drop on your head. No matter where you apply essential oils, they will absorb into your skin and you are good to go.
NOTE: Any time you are using an oil for the first time, dilute it with a carrier oil* and apply it to your forearm to see how you respond. If it makes your skin red, you either need to dilute it further or avoid that essential oil.
*Any fatty oil makes a good carrier oil: olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil...
Young Living oils are PURE. The Young Living internal/dietary line is called the Vitality line and is rated GRAS, which stands for Generally Regarded As Safe for consumption. This is a designation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to indicate that a chemical or substance is considered safe by experts. The Vitality line has labels and directions indicating the oils are for safe for internal consumption.
*****The regular line has directions for aromatic and topical uses. In fact, Lemon oil and Lemon vitality are the SAME oil with different labeling and directions. SAME oil, DIFFERENT label.
Of course, if you are not comfortable using oils for internal consumption, that's perfectly fine! Topical and aromatic uses are great options.
There are so many times you need to stay focused as a teacher: writing lesson plans, grading papers and tests, prepping for parent-teacher conferences.
Check out these three oils that will help you focus during difficult times.
- Vetiver has a grounding and stabilizing effect.
- Cedarwood has a calming effect.
- Lavender promotes a general sense of well-being and creates a spa-like atmosphere. (Lavender comes in the Premium Starter Kit.)
Combine them together to make a perfect focus blend.
FOCUS ROLLER RECIPE:
- 10 drops of Vetiver
- 10 drops of Lavender
- 10 drops of Cedarwood
Add each essential oil to a 10 mL bottle and top off with YL V6 oil, grape seed oil, or fractionated coconut oil.
Apply to temples, wrists, and/or back of the neck as needed and see the difference it makes when you need to maintain focus on your teaching activities.
Diffuser options: Put 2-3 drops of each essential oil in your diffuser while writing lesson plans or grading tests.
If you are allowed to diffuse in the classroom, help your students stay focused on those long days of standardized state tests, uplift their spirits, and keep your classroom smelling fresh with these diffuser recipes.
UPLIFTING FOCUS DIFFUSER RECIPES:
- 3 Drops Peppermint
- 3 Drops Lemon
- 2 drops Spearmint
- 2 drops Grapefruit
- 2 drops Peppermint
While you need to get a good night's rest every school night, the night before the first day of school is especially important as your students may be meeting you for the first time and vice versa. #FirstImpressionsAreEverything
The excitement, anticipation, and nervous energy can make it difficult to get a good night's rest, but I have some great suggestions to help you get the rest you need.
Make Lavender oil a critical part of your evening routine to help your body unwind, release, and relax. Diffuse 3-8 drops in your favorite diffuser. Don't forget these tips are not just great for you as a teacher, but for your children as well.
Take your nighttime diffusing experience to the next level by adding Marjoram and Peace & Calming.
- Marjoram promotes peace and sleep.
- Peace & Calming is a blend of 5 different oils to promote confidence, self-love, peace, & calm.
IT'S-A-SCHOOL-NIGHT DIFFUSER RECIPE
- 2 drops Lavender
- 2 drops Peace & Calming
- 1 drop Marjoram
*Make it a roll-on by combining 6 drops Lavender, 6 drops Peace & Calming, and 3 drops Marjoram in a 10 ml roll-on. Top it off with the carrier oil of your choice and roll on your neck and wrists before bed.
If you are not much of a DIYer but enjoy using your oils topically, you can take advantage of Young Living's premade Roll-ons.
The Tranquil Roll-on is a school-night favorite ready-to-go recipe of:
- Roman Chamomile
- and coconut oil.
This "unicorn concoction" is composed of relaxing oils that can help ease your body and mind for a restful and deep night's sleep.
Keep your immune system strong
As teachers we work endless hours during the school year and yes we do get our summer off. Which we so deserve!! That means more time outside getting your natural dose of immune-boosting vitamin D, supporting your immune system. But what happens when you're back to school and stuck in a classroom all day not getting your daily dose of Vitamin D? You need some practical tricks to keep yourself healthy. Besides eating well, getting plenty of sleep, and drinking your water, you can add these little weapons to your stay-well arsenal.
First, start each day off right with 1-2 oz Ningxia Red® (Pronounced Ning-Sha) Two 2 oz packs come in the Premium Starter Kit.
This delectable antioxidant drink is a proprietary blend of wolfberry puree and concentrated blueberry, plum, cherry, aronia, and pomegranate juices along with essential oils (Orange, Yuzu, Lemon, and Tangerine) and a few more ingredients, all supporting the digestive, cardiovascular, and endocrine systems. Ningxia Red also aids in detoxification, energy production, and brain function.
WOW, that’s one magical drink!
Take your NingXia Red shot to the next level by adding a drop of each of these vitality oils:
Thieves Vitality Essential Oil is a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary. This essential oil blend is highly regarded for its ability to support the immune system. It's the perfect addition to your everyday wellness routine. Thieves Vitality comes in the Premium Starter Kit.
Lemon Vitality Essential Oil supports the digestive, immune, and respiratory systems. It promotes health and energizes the mind and body! It also contains 68% d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant! Lemon Vitality also comes in the Premium Starter Kit.
Copaiba Vitality Essential Oil includes naturally occurring beta-caryophyllene and alpha-humulene, both of which support the body’s natural response to injury or irritation. Be a good student and do a little research on your own about this one to see what a magical little oil it is. Copaiba Vitality comes in the Premium Starter Kit.
Clove Vitality Essential Oil, which comes from Cloves, the ultimate "protective" herb, helps support the digestive, immune, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It's also a powerful antioxidant! Ground clove has an ORAC* value of 290,283 units. This means that every gram of ground cloves contains 30 times more antioxidants than a gram of blueberries, which only has a value of 9,621.
*ORAC Values: The antioxidant values of foods listed are expressed in ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) units, a unit of measurement for antioxidant content that was originally developed by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
Taking a 2 oz shot of Ningxia Red along with one drop of each of the four above-listed essential oils will keep you feeling your best!
Here are three other ways to maintain your health throughout the school year:
- Add a drop of Lemon vitality to your daily water intake for an instant flavor boost!
- Make a tasty and healthy herbal tea by adding one drop of Thieves Vitality to your normal tea routine for a little extra spice.
- DiGize Vitality and Peppermint Vitality in a capsule to support your digestive system. Both of these essential oils come in the Premium Starter Kit.
Live above the wellness line with this back to school wellness roller!
Your "personal" days are limited and needing a substitute teacher is not ideal. In addition to your daily dose of NingXia Red, I also recommend making a wellness roll-on and using it every day before and after the school day.
WELLNESS ROLLER RECIPE:
- 10 drops Frankincense *Comes in the Premium Starter Kit*
- 15 drops: Oregano
- 15 drops Peppermint
- 15 drops Thieves
- 30 drops Lemon
Put the above in a 15ml glass roller and top it off with a carrier oil. Apply to the bottom of your feet before leaving for school in the morning.
BONUS TIP: Your empty essential oils bottles from Young Living can be reused. Purchase a 10 pack of Young Living roller fitments. Use a fitment on your recycled Young Living bottle for an easy roll-on.
Keep It Clean
Many of the generic cleaners used at home and in the classroom contain Phthalates, which interfere with hormones and are carcinogens. They also contain asthma instigators and poisonous ingredients that affect you and your students' health.
Thieves cleaner is plant-based and does NOT contain those big bad Phthalates or any other harmful chemicals. It can be used on many different surfaces: counters, bathrooms, floors, toys, clothes, carpet, mirrors, windows, and, yes, your desk.
There is an entire Thieves line you will want to try, but two teacher must-haves are the Thieves Spray for easy on-the-go quick clean up and the Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier. As a teacher, being around kids all of the time calls for a lot of hand washing. The Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier is quick, easy, gentle, and won't dry out your hands. It smells great, too!
A sample of Thieves Household Cleaner comes in the Premium Starter Kit. It is enough to make a 30 oz bottle of all-purpose cleaner.
Energize and Be Joyful!
As a teacher, you encounter a lot of emotional ups and downs. Sometimes you need a little extra support in the emotions and energy department. Maybe you had to cover someone's class or you have to head home to care for your family after a long day of teaching. Whatever your situation is, there are many great Young Living options to keep you energized, like NingXia Nitro. If you haven't tried it, take this 1 oz energy drink after lunch and feel energized with no afternoon crash.
There are also some effective essential oils to help keep you smiling all day long.
Here are four of my favorites:
JOY is a beautiful blend of ten different essential oils that helps stimulate uplifting emotions. It contains Rose oil, which is the most expensive oil with a very high frequency. High frequencies keep you healthy and happy!
ORANGE & LEMON help bring peace and happiness to mind and body.
PEPPERMINT is stimulating & invigorating in case you need a little energy boost.
Combine these essential oils in a 10 ml bottle with a roll-on top for a JOYFUL ENERGY ROLL-ON RECIPE:
- 3 drops of Joy
- 7 drops of Peppermint
- 10 drops of Lemon
- 10 drops of Orange
- Top the bottle off with YL V6 carrier oil and apply to your wrists as often as needed.
You can easily turn this into a diffuser recipe by cutting down the recipe by 2/3.
*Please note: Citrus oils can cause your skin to be more sensitive to the sun. Avoid applying this blend to skin that will be exposed to the sun if you plan to go outside later in the day.
The Occasional stressors
As a teacher, you have a lot of responsibility. Hopefully, you love your students, their parents, and your job, but even those in the best working environments have challenging days for various reasons.
- Administrative days
- Teacher evaluations
- Lots of prep
- Challenging students
- Parent Emails
As a teacher, I know you can feel these emotions start to stir while you read this list.
Let's talk about what you can use to minimize these occasional stressors and keep the nerves calm.
My ultimate favorite as a teacher is Stress Away Essential Oil!!!!
Stress Away essential oil blend contains Lime, Vanilla extract, Cedarwood, Lavender, & Copaiba essential oils.
This fragrant blend of oils can release tension to help your mind and body relax.
I add a drop to each writs in the morning before all the craziness of my day starts. Then I reapply as needed. I also diffuse 3-6 drops when needed. Stress Away comes in the Premium Starter Kit!
CALMING ROLL-ON RECIPE
- 10 drops Lemon
- 5 drops Lavender
- 15 drops Clary Sage
Add these three oils to a 10 or 15 ml roller bottle. Fill the rest with your favorite carrier oil or YL V6 oil. Keep this in your desk and apply to your wrists and neck when needed, even if it's every period.
Turn this into a diffuser recipe by using 2 drops Lemon, 2 drops Clary Sage, and 1 drop Lavender.
Feeling Tech challenged? Use Clarity blend topically and in the diffuser.
Taking home your students' problems? Diffuse Release blend.
To do list's got your head pounding? Use Peppermint and PanAway on your temples. They both come in the Premium Starter Kit.
Safety tip: Please be cautious of using Clary sage oil when pregnant.
Motivation Roller Blend
Ok teachers, how long is your typical To-Do list? Everyone needs motivation at times, but this one is perfect for my teacher friends! I call it “Get 'er Done!” It can give you that extra push to get through it all while leaving you some extra time to be social!
Get 'er Done Roll-On Blend:
- 5 drops of Black Pepper
- 5 drops of Lime
- 5 drops of Orange
- 5 drops of Frankincense
Top off a 5mL bottle with your favorite carrier oil. Apply to wrists and get moving!
Let's break these oils down.
Lime & Orange. These invigorating oils are the kick in the pants you need to get your to-do list finished.
Black pepper. It's said to be both comforting and stimulating to the body.
Frankincense: This historical and spiritual oil increases spiritual awareness and provides a centered and grounded feeling.
If you want an easy peasy one-bottle one-drop situation, get yourself a bottle of Motivation oil. Apply one drop to your wrists, inhale, and become the energizer bunny.
Essential Rewards (ER)
