Back to School Essentials: Oils and Plant-Based Products for Transitioning from Summer Vacation to the School Year


But I know you’re as excited as I am to do some back to school shopping and fill up those backpacks and lunch boxes with great treats, so I am not going to make you wait for parts or installments or episodes. Instead, I am just going to give you the info in this ONE POST!

PSK Oils & Products



Do you have a Premium Starter Kit sitting on your shelf that you bought so long ago and can’t remember why? OR – do you have a kit you just purchased and you’re wondering how you can use the oils and plant-based products within it to transition from summer into the school year? I’ve got you covered today! Thanks to the design team at Oil Revolutions Design (who keeps me looking good with some great graphics) I’ve got some images below that share some tips and tricks with you!

















Beyond the PSK – Other Great Oils & Products from Young Living

Y’all know it’s back to school season! Who doesn’t love the smell and feel of new books and school supplies?! Right now it’s the perfect time to stock up on a few essentials to help kick off the new school year with a bang! Thanks to my friends (and my upline) at Oily Home Companion, I have some fun graphics and tips for you on some oils and plant-based products you may not be aware of yet for your family! Most of these (with the exception of NingXia Red singles) are not in the PSK are are ordered on Essential Rewards for members or through a Quick Order.



MindWise is an excellent friend to have around for mental maydays! This memory function blend from Young Living supports normal brain function and overall cognitive and cardiovascular health. Plus the citrus flavor is a hit with kids and adults! Add it to your kids’ lunches a couple times a week to treat their brains for working hard and staying strong!

Packed with essential oils Cedarwood, Myrrh, Northern BlackLights (just to name a few), this is an excellent blend to diffuse for young brains focusing on projects.



NingXia Red Singles

Make their lunch boxes extra special! NingXia Red singles are the perfect lunch pal—tasty juice (wolfberry, plum, blueberry, cherry) packed with nutrients and essential oils that’ll help them feel charged for the day. While you’re at it, add one to your lunch box too! What’s your favorite lunchbox surprise?

Make it extra fun by letting your kids add their favorite stickers to the roller! That way they’ll be even more excited to use it.
