More than two-thirds of school aged children miss one day or more of school due to illness each year, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Parents with little to no sick time off risk their jobs if they stay home and care for a sick child. Parents are more likely to send sick kids to school and risk teachers, students, and administrators’ health as well.
In addition, kids spend an average of seven and a half hours sitting at school, which can impact their focus and mood. There’s an increase in children being diagnosed with anxiety and depression disorders.
6.1% of American children are being treated for ADHD with medication. Medications such as these with toxic chemicals can harm kids while their brains are still forming.
That’s why Williamson, an aromatherapist, Natural Health Advocate and former educator founded Square Pegs Round World LLC, so that she could teach parents, caretakers and educators natural, safe alternatives to improving school aged kids’ mood, focus and immunity using essential oils and aromatherapy.
“My mission is to empower families to take a natural approach to healing in their homes,” says Williamson.
Parents can get school-aged kids primed for learning, good moods and clear thinking this school year by trying natural alternatives.
Williamson shares her 3 Tips to help parents prepare their kids for a healthy the upcoming school year
- Boost kids’ immune system to avoid back to school illnesses by changing what they eat, taking plant-based supplements, and participating in regular exercise.
- Get a good night’s sleep. Less sleep equals more illness and a weak immune system.
- Improve GI tract health. 70% of immune function in the human body is found there.
The following are just several essential oils to choose from to increase school-aged kids’ focus, mood and immunity:
- Focus: Peppermint, Rosemary, and Vetiver
- Mood: Lavender, Chamomile, and Wild Orange
- Immunity: Clove, Cinnamon, and Eucalyptus
Always consult with a certified Aromatherapist before using essential oils with kids.
