My Kids School Routine with Oils


This year is a big year for us as our eldest Duke goes to preschool (cue all the emotions from me!) and I love that I am feeling like an empowered Mumma knowing that I have the natural tools at my fingertips to help create a daily routine for our home. DAILY being the keyword. Learning to create a before, after school and evening routine that I could stick too was super important to me and the best example of this is with the oils in my “Mumma Toolkit” at the bottom of this blog.

I list below what are my most commonly used and favourite oils that will be used daily and I have also listed alternatives to makeup (with correct dilution – less is always more. I just start out with a few drops of oil to a tablespoon of carrier oil and work my way up if need be) in a 10ml roller blend with a carrier oil.

Before School:

Wild Orange or Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend in the diffuser while my boys eat breakfast and get ready for the day. This creates an uplifting and positive aroma to our home and also helps me with any #tired mum emotions that I may be feeling!!

Thinker Focus Blend to help concentration during school and Stronger Protective Blend for immune support. Both of these will be swiped on the bottom of Duke’s feet and back of his neck just as we are leaving to go to school.

Alternatives – Calming oils such as Lavender and Frankincense for our diffuser if our home needs calming in the morning over uplifting. On Guard Protective Blend and Frankincense for immune support. Rosemary and Peppermint for concentration and focus.

After School:

Balance Grounding Blend in the car diffuser for school pick up to help calm the long day emotions. On Guard and Arborvitae in the diffuser when we get home to help cleanse and purify the air and ward off anything that my boys may have brought home from school.

Alternatives – No car diffuser? I make a misting spray. Tea Tree or Lemon are good oils for the diffuser or spray to help cleanse the air.


Lavender bath for the kids to relax and unwind and Frankincense and Lavender Peace in their diffuser twenty minutes before bed for sleep time. Calmer Restful Blend rolled on the bottom of the boys’ feet after bath time.

All-purpose spray (On Guard Cleaner Concentrate) to clean down all the benches, spray inside school shoes with a DIY Lemon spray to eliminate any odours, pack everything away that takes ten minutes at night to get back an hour in the morning.

Alternatives – All-purpose spray recipe found here, few drops of Lemon oil on a paper towel or cloth and placed inside the shoes overnight.

Mumma Toolkit:

doTERRA’s Top Ten Oils (like the Home Essentials Kit) and a diffuser hands down! These are what parents need on a daily basis to care for their families. The top ten oils can help support 80% of our needs and there are so many different blends you can make from this range.

A diffuser is going to help support your home with receiving the maximum benefits when diffusing your oils during the day and night. Our diffusers go on twenty minutes before bedtime to create that perfect dream time bliss. If you do not already have a doTERRA account and NEED this kit in your home, you will find it here.

doTERRA’s Kids Collection: Formulated specifically for developing minds, bodies, and emotions, these essential oil blends feature unique combinations therapeutically balanced to provide powerful benefits while being gentle on delicate skin.

Mood Management Kit: Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend and Elevation Joyful Blend for all the uplifting and happy moods in the morning to start the day off. Balance Grounding Blend and Lavender Peace Calming Blend for after school slow down and sleepy town at night.

These oils are great for the whole family by supporting their emotions and moods. I always have these four bottles on my kitchen bench to use and so should you!

You can find this kit in your back office as a doTERRA member or start your oil journey with the pack here.

The list can go on and on but these are my simple but effective choices of what we use in our home. Create a lifestyle. If I chose to only use our oils “here and there” then I would expect to only have “here and there” benefits. I truly could not imagine not having essential oils in our home to support our family, especially with school and I am happy every single day that we have natural alternatives to use.
