How Aromatherapy Can Help You During
Back to School Season
Use the benefits of aromatherapy in your home to create productive spaces that suit your needs for studying, relaxing + being successful this season.
How can Aromatherapy help me with back to school?
Aromatherapy has been around for centuries, used in nearly every culture to some degree since 4000 BC, so how can we utilize aromatherapy to ease the back to school transition (for all of us!)
Whether you yourself are in college or you are preparing your kiddos to succeed this year; whether school is online courses, the classroom, or home school, implementing some simple aromatherapy solutions into your routine could really help during this busy time.
Aromatherapy can help to stimulate the brain, involve scent/muscle memory when studying + create a space for you + your family to thrive this season!
Create a study space
We have all heard how having a dedicated space helps you focus + absorb information. but did you know the same is true for having a dedicated scent? and it's actually a lot easier!
no matter your age, whether you study at a desk, the kitchen table, your bed (guilty!), or a designated room, sitting down + having a specific candle or reed diffuser in that area can trigger your brain to know it is "study time"
this can help transition you from the day's activities to mentally being ready for some homework
But we all have different aromatherapy needs
We have put together this Peripeti Fragrance Guide so that you can identify your needs for your specific study space.
For example, do you need something to motivate you, relax you, refresh you... there's a scent for that!
Finding your "study scent" will help a lot in creating that space to thrive! Find it here
Aromatherapy can do even more...
Getting a good nights rest is also key to a smooth transition back into school + studying.
Our non-toxic room sprays make great linen sprays for sheets and pillows.. We recommend, Lavender Patchouli, Tobacco Apricot, or if sleeping in the woods is your thing White Birch + Spruce, all have soothing notes to help you get the rest you need
another essential oil/aromatherapy trick that I find helpful is using a roller ball blend of EO's on my feet, this circulates the oils.
I find the blend of lavender + cedar wood knocks me out! I blend with organic olive oil + add about 3-5 drops of each essential oil.
And then there's waking up...
This can be hard too especially as it stays dark longer in the mornings.
It's a great time for some Aromatherapy!
Use citrus essential oils such as grapefruit, sweet orange, or orange blossom in the shower. I dab a couple drops on my washcloth to breath in or on my pumice stone which releases it nicely (and I love the EO's on my feet!)
I also use awesome natural soap products to give a boost (we love the natural line from Erie Soap Company!) and it's fun to change up the scent for something new in the morning. You can also spray our Grapefruit Vanilla room spray on your towel + even the bath mat to give yourself a little morning motivation + kick your brain on + get ready to go for the day!
What about in the classroom?
Here's a cool tip, teachers LOVE aromatherapy products for their classrooms. Many of our customers are teachers looking to improve the learning environment for their students.
A good way to get in good with the teacher + bring some aromatherapy into the classroom is with our Reed Diffusers or Soy Wax Melts for electric burners.
It's important to note that Peripeti products are all natural so are suitable for a classroom or office environment. You do not want to bring chemical based products into any indoor environment.
So to recap... (an important step in education I learned from my time teaching literacy + art in Chicago)
Incorporate Aromatherapy into this Back to School Season by:
1. Creating a study space with a scent to help you focus. Check out our guide to learn what's best for you
2. Make sure to use a linen spray + roller ball to help get a good night's sleep
3. Use aromatherapy as a pick me up in the morning
4. Bring aromatherapy into the classroom (and score points with your teacher!) believe me, it works
