4 Back-to-School Essences for Kids & Students (Don't worry parents, we've got something for you too!)

Brandy Oswald1 comment

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!

4 Back-to-School Essences for Kids & Students

1. Brilliant Student

Snapshot: For studying, creativity, alertness, and public speaking

Support intellectual and artistic endeavors, while enhancing concentration and alertness with our Brilliant Student Constellation.

It is also brilliant for public speaking, test-taking, presentations, and artistic expression. Take on the new school year with vigor and heightened creativity!


2. Attention Formula

Snapshot: Improves concentration, assists with relaxation, and assists with ADD & ADHD

Remain attentive, focused, and relaxed this school year with Attention Formula. This blend has been shown to offer incredible support to children and adults living with ADD & ADHD. It’s Peruvian rose salt base helps to balance minerals, while its fava flower essence holds a connection with L-Dopamine.

No more drifting, nodding off during class, or fidgeting in your seat this school year!

3. Happy Kid

With its ability to balance and calm challenging situations, this gentle, nurturing blend is designed specifically for children. Its joyful, loving influence can inspire positive dynamics between siblings and playmates, as well as with parents and other authority figures. As the kiddos transition into a new school year, their relationships with their siblings and parents can become strained by the new schedules, obligations, and school yard dynamics. Children are especially sensitive to energy and respond quickly to this formula, making it the perfect solution to help the whole family get along during the back-to-school frenzy!

Happy Kid is available in both Constellation drops and Spray formats. Or pair them!
