Embrace the New School Year with Aromatherapy: Your Guide to a Balanced Back-to-School Season

Embrace the New School Year with Aromatherapy: Your Guide to a Balanced Back-to-School Season

on Aug 14, 2023

It’s already back-to-school week here in Orange County, California!  Whether you're a student, parent, or teacher, this time of year can be both exciting and overwhelming. Thankfully, the power of aromatherapy is here to support you in embracing this new chapter with calmness, focus, and energy.

Numerous studies have explored the potential of aromatherapy to alleviate stress and anxiety, both of which are common challenges during the back-to-school season. Aromatherapy can trigger the release of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, helping to uplift mood and induce feelings of relaxation. Essential oils like lavender, cedarwood, and vetiver have been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system, promoting a sense of tranquility that can be particularly beneficial before exams, presentations, or important meetings.

Aromatherapy has also shown promise in enhancing cognitive functions, such as focus and attention. Lemon, orange, and peppermint essential oils, for instance, have been associated with increased alertness and improved cognitive performance. Diffusing these oils while studying or engaging in tasks that require focus can create an environment conducive to effective learning.

Here are a few tips to consider for an easy transition into your new routine:


  1. Energize Your Mind with Energy Essential Oil Blend:

Mornings can be a challenge, especially after the relaxed pace of summer. The Energy Essential Oil Blend can be your go-to to kickstart the day with renewed vitality. Infused with invigorating oils like lemon, orange, and grapefruit, this blend is designed to awaken your senses and boost mental clarity. Simply add a few drops to your diffuser while you're getting ready in the morning or while studying to experience a refreshing and motivating atmosphere.

  1. Find Tranquility with Calm Essential Oil Blend for the Diffuser:

With all the overwhelm that comes with the back-to-school season, it's essential to create pockets of calmness throughout your day. The Calm Essential Oil Blend is crafted to promote relaxation and reduce stress. Lavender, cedarwood, vetiver, and sandalwood oils work harmoniously to soothe your senses and create a peaceful environment. Diffuse this blend in your bedroom or the children’s bedroom just 30 minutes before bedtime to create a serene environment that will help you sleep deeper.

  1. On-the-Go Calmness with the Calm Personal Inhaler:

For those moments when stress overwhelms you, having a Calm Personal Inhaler in your pocket can make all the difference. This portable aromatherapy solution allows you to experience the benefits of essential oils wherever you go. Inhale deeply whenever you need a quick dose of tranquility during busy school days. Its compact size makes it a convenient and discreet tool to have in your backpack or purse.

  1. Stay Grounded with the Calm Essential Oil Roll-On:

When you need some Calm but don’t want to diffuse in your whole room, using a roll-on is the perfect solution.  The Calm Essential Oil Roll-On is pre-diluted and ready to use on the skin. Gently apply it to your wrists, temples, or pulse points whenever you need to center yourself and regain focus. The blend of calming oils in this roll-on will help you navigate challenges with a sense of ease.


As you embark on a new school year, remember that self-care is a vital component of achieving balance and success. Aromatherapy can be your ally in managing stress, enhancing concentration, and fostering a positive mindset. In parallel to that, it's important to also consider developing other habits, such as a sleep routine and a study schedule. Mindfullness and relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation can significantly contribute to managing stress that comes with the demand of school.
