Homework nights - the stuff of nightmares for even the most patient and tolerant parent. When what's supposed to be a 10-minute homework assignment stretches into a gruelling hour of your kids bouncing around, doodling, or firing off a barrage of random questions, it's enough to send one into an emotional meltdown.
Many young kids get easily bored and distracted, they often have trouble sitting still and staying focused long enough to finish a task. That's actually perfectly natural, but most schools don't think of this when they hand out homework assignments! Nagging and threats of punishment never work, and neither does bribery (yes, we've tried it). Give yourself (and your kids) a break with this uplifting, energising, and calming blend of essential oils from Plant Therapy!
Exuding a vibrant and citrusy-sweet aroma, it's a delightful way to support focus and concentration. Apply about 10 drops on a personal inhaler or use 2-3 drops per 100 mL of water and diffuse as needed. Just like A+ Attention but without the floral scents, this will help calm their minds so they can concentrate and stay on task!
Roll on: As above, plus Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Fractionated Coconut Oil)

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
