If your afternoons are anything like mine….crazy, tiring, exhaustive, busy and chaotic, you will love this Homework Helper blend! Between Ballet, Karate, and Baseball our afternoons are jam packed. Oh wait, did I mention homework?? How could I not?! The amount of homework my 6 and 8 year old are required to do is insane! After being in school for almost 8 hours, our kids are required to spend another hour or so (depending on the day) sitting still and doing homework. Add in extra curricular activities and your days can become stressful! Needless to say, most of us can use some assistance during homework time and this blend is sure to help!

The kids are back in school! Now we get to spend hours & hours doing homework at the kitchen table. Let’s make this process a little easier.
First, allow your kids some free play time when they get home from school. Letting them release some energy & play will help their concentration later in the evening. Next, give them a snack. A protein-packed snack helps the brain calm down and fuels the body & brain. Finally, provide a quiet or calm space for them to work. At my house, this is the dining room table cleared of all distractions. I am only a few steps away and available for help.
During homework time, get out your diffuser and try one of these blends to help your student get through that evening homework session.
If you don’t have a diffuser, consider using a personal inhaler with 12-15 drops of your selected blend on the reusable cotton wick! Allow your child to decorate the inhaler tube with his or her name. Empowering children with tools they can use to manage their education is so important!
Don’t underestimate the benefits of a good diet and proper rest, as well! Studies show that proper nutrition and rest are just as important to your child education as the teacher they have or the school they go to!
