Staying Healthy in the Classroom with Young Living Essential Oils

staying healthy in the classroom

I really, REALLY, don’t like the start of a new school year (shhh, don’t tell my kids!).  Not only are you coming off of a carefree summer where the weather is warm and outdoor activities are plentiful, but it also means that your immune system can start taking some hits with cold weather season is just around the corner.  Any time there are bunches of kids in a contained area like a classroom, you know it’s inevitable that you will need boxes of tissues ready at home!

All that being said, this year I feel so much more prepared for this cold weather season because I have my oils to help support our immune systems!  Of course I am constantly reminding my kids to make sure they wash their hands well at school, especially before lunch and after using the bathroom.  But in addition to reminding them about good hand washing and of course praying over their health daily, this year I also have Young Living Thieves oil… a blend of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.

Young Living Thieves Oil

Thieves® essential oil blend was inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals they used while robbing the dead and dying

Every morning before school, we use Thieves oils.

Additionally, I send my daughter to school with a bottle of Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier… I wasn’t sure whether she would get a chance to wash hands before lunch, so I wanted to make sure she had some way of cleaning her hands after touching stuff all morning that tons of inevitably sick kids had already touched!


Thankfully she’s since told me they DO get a bathroom break before lunch to wash up, so she said she uses the Purifier after lunch.  Kind of defeats the purpose, but she said she loves using it!  It smells so good.  She wanted me to leave it in her bag.  :)

Of course nothing is foolproof… to regularly support their immune systems, I keep my Premium Starter kit on hand (which includes Thieves!) plus a few more oils.  We’ve seen positive health benefits!

I’m thankful that we have Thieves oil to help our kids’ immune systems in top shape in the classroom!  This is one oil I never let run out!

    We love Thieves! Thanks for writing about the Thieves hand purifier, I’ve never seen that before, what a great solution.
    I was chaperoning on a class camping trip last spring; it was wet, and very cold (we had freezing rain on the last night!) and children were starting to have coughs and sore throats. I really believe that the Thieves oil (and the astragalus tea) saved that trip. Except for one girl who turned out to be allergic to the cloves: she got a big headache from it; but it did cure her throat-ache.

      Yes! Thieves is amazing for sore throats and the beginnings of colds! I’ll have to look up the astragalus tea, I’ve never heard of that! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  2. I love using essential oils on my kids! I should use them everyday like you do.

    • Angie says:

      I love that my kids love them, too! For us it’s worth it to use them everyday because we can tell they make a difference. Thanks for stopping by!! :)

  3. I really need to get some thieves. I’m all about essential oils for remedies but I’ve yet to get into the thieves line of things.

  4. I’m not looking forward either to all the germs I know my daughter is going to bring home with her.

    • Angie says:

      I know it, Olivia! It’s one of the worst things about a new school year to me! :( We just try to support their immune systems in every way we can! Thanks so much for visiting. :)

  5. I love Thieves too! I think I may be running low! Time to stock back up.

  6. Amber says:

    Yes, the germs are nothing to look forward to! Thanks for sharing a great options for helping in this battle! I will definitely look into this product!

    I use a conditioning spray for my daughter that has EOs in it. I never even remembered until I read this post. It’s supposed to deter lice, but I have it because as a child my mom used EOs in our shampoo to deter lice. We’re awesome. :)

  8. I have a thieves oil question. I LOVE essential oils, and cassia bark is a favorite of mine for cleaning. However, I notice it burns when it gets on my skin. Does thieves use a different source of cinnamon, or is it just so diluted?

    • Angie says:

      Hi Shannon! Thieves oil is actually extremely STRONG because it is NOT diluted! It is considered a ‘hot’ oil because it can indeed cause irritation to your skin, especially if it is sensitive. That being said, you don’t usually have to dilute oils that go on the bottoms of your feet. But if I use Thieves anywhere else on the body, I definitely dilute it with a carrier oil first!
