Today, I’m sharing some of our favorite essential oil blends for homeschool. Our family went through a season of really taking care of ourselves. We cut out all processed foods, limited sugar, switched to organic foods, cut out harmful toxins… etc., etc., etc.
Then life happened, stress tripled, and we slowly started falling off the wagon.
There are still things we appreciate, like organic foods and natural products, especially for the kids, but I’m ready for the shift back to really putting our family’s health first. So, I thought I’d share some of the ways we’re doing that, particularly as it relates to our homeschool journey, here on the blog!
Some would say this is a series of sorts, but I’d rather not put it into a box. Natural family health and living is something I’m passionate about, because I KNOW the life-changing effects that a few small, meaningful changes can make in your home. So I don’t want to limit myself to a four or six-part “series”, rather, I’d like to share what changes we’re making and why as we make them so that you can follow along and get ideas for your family as well. Especially for homeschooling!
We used essential oils before and still diffuse them every now and then, but I never dug into the world of essential oils and how they could be used, particularly in our homeschool, but also on a deeper level than just adding a few drops of peppermint to coconut oil for a headache.
However, I’ve been researching the heck out of essential oils, not only types and recipes, but brands as well! Mostly, I wanted to make sure I didn’t hop on a “brand”-wagon because a friend had a code or “starter kit”, but I wanted to understand the who, what, why… behind every essential oil brand before I started purchasing more oils.

Now, I was introduced to essential oils through a popular oil brand that starts with the letter D. Yup.. That’s the one! And I learned the high-level instructions for diffusing oils. From there, I started purchasing “pure” oils from Vitamin Shoppe because I heard that as long as the oils are pure, they’re great! Eventually, I just started adding oils to our Grove orders and that’s what I’ve been using for about a year now.
Here’s the thing… You have to research what’s best for YOUR family. I’m not here to tell you one brand is bad or good, I’m just sharing what I’ve done and why I’ve done it so that you can see that researching before jumping on a trend or whatever is super important.
As of right now, Plant Therapy is hands down in the running for our essential oil purchases. In fact, I just placed an order this morning! Plant Therapy uses pure oils and offers organic options as well, but the biggest PRO I added to the list (and was ultimately the deciding factor) is that they third-party test every oil and share the results on their website! It’s not a members-only club of information, nor is it a “proprietary” inside-test that could really be anything.
The “cherries-on-top” are they are a cruelty-free company, they pass savings down to the customer since there’s not a middle-man, and they have an incredible program for giving back to communities all over the world!
I encourage you… Do your research 🙂
Here are 3 essential oil blends for homeschool that you can diffuse over and over again!
Plant Therapy is not an MLM. There’s not a quota or minimum order amount or anything. They offer subscriptions for your convenience (and give you 5% OFF!) but you can also purchase one-time and a lot of their items are on Amazon (which is how I’ve linked them below!)
However, they do have a sweet referral program where you can give $10 and get $10 when you share your referral link with a friend! So, if you’d like to purchase and want $10 to spend, consider using my link to shop: click here.
