Being that it is back to school time, I am on a mission to start the year off right. I want to set clear guidelines and rules of the classroom, and am looking to have the classroom run as smoothly as possible as soon as possible. There are children returning from Summer vacation, children who are new, and others that were at the school during Summer Camp. The beginning of a school year is the time to get everyone on the same page, and get everyone “normalized” within a quick time frame.
“Normalization” in Montessori terms is used to describe the process in which children in the classroom find inner discipline and peace, and the children are able to concentrate and focus on working freely throughout the classroom. To assist with the process of normalization, a friend recommended the use of doTerra Essential Oils in my classroom. Leticia Baxter is an Elite Wellness Advocate for doTerra Essential Oils, and she educated me on the positive effects of using the oils in my classroom. The most important thing I learned about using essential oils is to do my research. Not all oils are created equal, and doTerra oils have proven to be superior to other brands currently on the market. To learn more about doTerra Essential Oils click here.
I invited Leticia to share some of the benefits of using doterra essential oils in your classroom (or home). doterra Essential Oils offer a variety of oils for a variety of health benefits, however, Leticia discussed only a few; the ones that are beneficial for focus, concentration, and calming. Without further ado-here are the benefits of using doterra essential oils.
Why Use doTERRA Essential Oils? How can they be a benefit to the home and classroom?
I am going to touch on a few doTERRA Essential oils and the amazing benefits of using them in the classroom.
It is so important when choosing an essential oil brand! Many companies claim their oils to be therapeutic grade and some may be pure. In reality, very few of them are subjected to rigorous testing and standards for chemical composition. doTERRA essential oils are cross tested to ensure both the exact purity and composition potency of each batch. doTERRA works side by side with a global network of leading essential oil chemist and growers to ensure that our oils are the safest, purest, most potent and beneficial oils available in the world today. Please make sure the oils you are using are to the highest standards of quality. You can really tell a difference not only in smell but when using.
The Oil of Communication
Lavender is known for its calming and relaxing qualities. It helps reduce anxious feelings and helps ease feelings of tension. When you think of lavender… think all things calming. Lavender has many uses and helps with some of the following: restful night’s sleep, anxious feelings, emotional balance and sooths occasional skin irritations. These are just to name a few. Lavender can be used aromatically, topically and internally. Be aware that this does not go for all brands of essential oils. As long as there is a supplemental fact label on the bottle, you can use topically and internally. This is very important when using essential oils and why quality really does matter.
Diffusing Lavender in the classroom can help in calming the room and aid in better focus and concentration.
The Oil of Grounding
Sometimes life can bring on stress leaving us off guard and feeling overwhelmed. This blend helps to restore and ground us. Balance brings a feeling of calmness, peace and relaxation. It can evoke feelings of tranquility, sense of balance and ease anxious feelings. Balance can be used aromatically and topically.
Diffusing balance in the classroom helps ground the whole room, setting a calm peaceful environment.
The Oil of Protection
OnGuard supports healthy immune function and can be used to boost the immune system. It can also clean surfaces to protect against environmental threats just by adding to water for an effective all purpose cleaner. OnGuard can be used aromatically, topically and internally.
Diffusing OnGuard in the classroom helps shield individuals from germs, bacteria, mold and viruses all while purifying the air.
Wild Orange inspires abundance, fosters creativity and supports a positive mood. Wild Orange has a variety of uses such as cleansing, uplifting, invigorating and lowering anxious feelings or nervousness. It can aid in increasing concentration, emotional balance and so much more. Wild Orange can be used aromatically, topically and internally.
Diffusing Wild Orange in the classroom helps with concentration and focus while cleansing the air.
Oh… and it smells amazing too!

About the Author:
Hi, my name is Leticia Baxter from eoswith baxter4.com. I’m a stay at home mom who felt stuck in mom life. I love being able to stay at home with my kiddos and be there for them, and am truly lucky and blessed to do so! I found doTerra and it has helped me in so many ways! Natural solutions using the oils has empowered my family and my life. Why would I not share these life changing products with other?! I love that I can offer others hope! I look forward to helping you!
So know that you know about the benefits of using doTerra essential oils, I will share with you about actually using them in my classroom. My oil station is on a shelf in my classroom. My set-up is quite simple and using the diffuser is easy too! I use a small sized diffuser and add the oils to it. The easy to follow steps are listed below.
-Fill the diffuser to the red dot with water.
-Add two to three drops of each oil (for a stronger, more noticeable smell,add more drops). I personally stuck with the three drops
-This is where you can personalize the oil blends. You can use one, two, three, or all four oils! Depending on what your aim and goal is, you can pick different oils for each situation.
The children in my classroom absolutely LOVE the oils! They walk around commenting on how good it smells. It truly does work, I used them towards the end of the school year when the children start to get a little “unfocused”. They worked amazing! I noticed the difference in their ability to focus and concentrate, as well as the calming effect on the classroom overall.
I am so happy that I was able to find such pure, safe, and beneficial products to use in my classroom! What more could you want for your child or the children in your classroom?
