Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Essential oils have become an integral part of our homeschool classroom. My 10-year-old son often selects which oils he wants (or needs) to have diffused in our room, but often I chose which oils to help each of us with focus, attention and attitude for the day. Cedarwood is high in sesquiterpenes and often finds a way into our diffuser. Some of our other favorites for the classroom include the Clarity and Motivation blends along with Orange oil.

Some other oils we use during learning time are Brain Power blend and Vetiver. Because these two choices are more valuable than the oils listed above, I typically try to retain these for topical use in an attempt to get the most bang for my buck out of them! I like to place one drop on the crown of my son's head, rub it in with my finger and then use the same finger to sweep upward on the back of his neck, toward his brainstem. We both then always take some time to deeply inhale the aroma of the Brain Power or Vetiver, (with several deep breaths in and out), before moving along with our day.

We both enjoy using oils to help us get the most out of our homeschooling experience. I love it when my son knows exactly what he wants (or needs) in the diffuser. Just a couple of weeks ago we sat down at our desks early in the morning and I had not yet prepared our classroom diffuser to run. I was distracted by something else and was caught by surprise when he suggested, "Mom, I think today we need some Motivation with a hint of Orange..." He was right!
