Our List of Top Back-to-School Essential Oils for Kids

It’s back to school and your time is undoubtedly being spent shopping for stationery lists, book lists and extramural sports apparel. Adding organic essential oils to your shopping list may not seem an obvious necessity - but these powerful little droplets can help make the back-to-school transition just a little bit easier. Why not use nature to add a helping hand? 

Diffusing organic essential oils to supplement your child’s healthy lifestyle choices, and support their daily routines, will go a long way to aiding their performance at school and their overall wellbeing. 

At Sanctus Essence we are here to make your life a little easier with a range of organic essential oils and blends that are convenient and perfect for ‘back-to-school’ days.  


For rest:

One of the best advantages any child, tween or teen can have is a good night’s sleep. Starting the day right begins before they even wake up. The hours of sleep are when the body repackages its neurotransmitters - the chemicals that enable brain cells to communicate. A child is dependent on this to stay mentally alert and focused throughout the school day. 

Our cozy and comforting blend is ideal for children, gently calming minds and bodies after a demanding day. This bedtime bottle of ‘sleeping beauty’ essential oils will invite sweet dreams, all night long.

Organic essential oils

It contains the following relaxing combination of organic essential oils:

  • Green mandarin - it has a fantastic refreshing scent and is known for its soothing properties on the body’s nervous system. 
  • Roman chamomile - the lullaby of essential oils, diffuse or apply to bottoms of feet at bedtime. 
  • Lavender - the calming and restful powers of lavender have been recorded for generations.
  • Patchouli - a wonderful meditation oil with an earthy scent, it has earned its place in this blend.
  • Marjoram - the calming properties of this herb oil are said to work wonders on the nervous system. 
  • Rose Geranium - known for calming nerves and creating a calm and peaceful atmosphere.

(We love Rose Geranium essential oil and wrote an entire blog on its magical floral properties)

For focus:

There are many distractions that cause children to lose focus - during school hours and after school when homework beckons. Essential oils can be a secret weapon in assisting with focus, concentration and mental alertness so that kids don’t ‘zone out’ or start daydreaming. 

Organic essential oils can offer some natural bottled ‘brainpower.’ Just add a few drops to a diffuser to help sharpen those brain cells.

Organic essential oils

Try any of the following kid-friendly organic essential oils for some ‘brain-boosting’ power:

  • Pink Grapefruit - known for its uplifting and mood-balancing properties (vital for optimum brain function).
  • Lime - the refreshing zing uplifts the mood, adds energy and promotes better focus. 
  • Cypress - the aromatic fragrance is said to energise the mind and increase concentration
  • Frankincense - credited for its memory-boosting properties and to help with mental stamina.

    For stress

    The world is full of potential stress factors that can cause chronic anxiety in children and teens. Younger children often cannot articulate what is causing them stress, and back-to-school jitters are common, resulting in them being them sad and feeling down -  compromising their ability to function optimally at home and school.

    Calming essential oil droplets will help to melt any back-to-school stresses away. 

    Organic essential oils

    The following essential oils are reputed to contain properties that will aid in reducing anxiety, stress and ‘schoolday blues:’

    • Frankincense - a double-duty oil - also calming the mind and relaxing the body. 
    • Lavender -  added to a bath, or as a few drops on a pillow, this is a go-to essential oil for destressing. 
    • Clary Sage - this sounds like a BFF! Rub 3-5 drops on the abdomen for a soothing massage and complete relaxation. 
    • Sweet Marjoram - also known as the ‘joy of the mountains,’  was the symbol of happiness to the Greeks and Romans and is known to help strengthen a sense of emotional security. 
    • Geranium Rose - perfect for calming nerves and creating a sense of peace.
