It’s back to school time. Whether your kiddos are learning at home or at a public or private school, the challenges that they face are the same: improving focus and concentration, reducing stressful feelings, building a strong immune system, and a getting a good night’s sleep. So let’s jump right in. Here are 7 diffuser blends that are great for back to school.

As a homeschooling mama, I use several of these to get me going. I’m partial to doTerra’s Motivate Blend. That goes in my diffuser almost daily. And by the end of the day, I’m slathering myself in the Peace blend.

Have you tried any of these back to school diffuser blends? Which are your favorites?
