It’s that time of year again - the dog days of summer are coming to a close and the new school year is just around the corner. With the back-to-school frenzy upon us, it is easy for parents to feel overwhelmed by all there is to do to prepare their kiddies for the new semester ahead.
While parents are feeling a bit frantic and chaotic, the kiddos are often equal parts excited to see their friends and dreading the return of homework. For parents and children, alike, emotions are high and, in the blink of an eye, the easy, laid-back pace of summer has suddenly disappeared.
Now more than ever, it is important to come back to self-care - for mom, dad, kiddos, and all the great support persons going through the back-to-school transition. Yoga class, gym days, family bike rides, story time - whatever it is, prioritizing re-invigorating, rejuvenating activities for the entire family is essential.
Perhaps it goes without saying, but our favorite way to manage the potentially hectic back-to-school days is with flower and gem essences. Here are our top picks for a smooth, peaceful transition into the new school year - we’ve got essences for the kids, and a few for mom and dad, too!
