The Kids are Home for March Break – Keep Calm with Essential Oils for Stress Relief

The kids are home for March Break – yay! More quality family time, a break for them, and potentially a relaxing vacation. Except it isn’t always that serene. An uninterrupted week of family time can mean travel, more fighting among the children, and more stress for you.

Don’t let tension ruin a week of potential memory making. Essential oils for stress relief can help you get back to being the parent who appreciates any and all time spent with their family. Here’s how:

  1. Keep Your House Purified for Less Stress

You know what makes stress among adults and children even worse? Sickness. A bad cold or virus can make even the most mild-mannered person snappish and irritable. Especially if you’re planning on travelling for March Break, make sure your family is prepared by purifying the air in your house and disinfecting surfaces, especially things like doorknobs and TV remotes. We like using eucalyptus essential oil, which is naturally antimicrobial.

  1. Help Children Stay Calm During Travel

Using essential oils for stress relief isn’t just a grown-up thing. If you’re going on a long plane or car ride and the little ones are acting up, a calming essential oil may be just the thing to help. A drop or two of lavender essential oil (known for its soothing effects) can be put on the car mats. You can also mix it with a carrier oil and rub it onto hands or feet for even more calming relief and sleep help. If you’re doing this, remember to dilute the essential oil well as children’s skin is more sensitive: http://thursdayplantationcanada.ca/essential-oil-uses-for-kids.

  1. Stay Refreshed

While putting the kids to sleep during a long car ride may be ideal, you still need to stay awake. Peppermint essential oil is refreshing enough that it can provide a quick pick-me-up. Even something as simple as opening the bottle and breathing it in could give you a caffeine-free perk.

  1. Deodorize a Hotel Room

You know how hotel rooms just never smell like home? You can change that with your trust essential oils. A few drops of your favourite scent — especially a purifying blend such as eucalyptus essential oil — will take away strange smells and help you feel less stressed instantly.

  1. Relax at Home

Even if you’re not travelling for March Break, essential oils for stress relief are still a great idea for a staycation. With the kids home, it may be tempting to spend every waking moment together as a family, but don’t forget to take some time out for yourself. Whether it’s having your essential oils diffuser running in the background or taking time out in the evening for a soothing soak in the tub with a few drops of lavender essential oil sprinkled in, you’ll be a more patient parent for having done so.

Remember, a March Break vacation with your kids — whether you’re travelling or staying at home — is time you can’t get back. It’s natural for even the calmest parent to feel frazzled and on edge, especially if you’re cooped up inside or going for a long car ride. Luckily, essential oils for stress relief can provide you with the tools you need to continue appreciating this family time and enjoy the break with your loved ones.

Heading out for a March Break vacation? Lucky you! Warm, sunny days, lounging outside on the beach, eating on patios for dinner… It can all sound like paradise, especially after the long, cold, snowy Canadian winter we’ve had.

But, sadly, even paradise can have its downsides — those warm, sunny days can translate into a wicked painful sunburn. Also, especially if you’re headed to a tropical destination, the buzzing of bugs can quickly pop your bubble.

These are but minor annoyances in the big picture, though, and with our help you can find relief from even the itchiest of sunburns or bug bites — Tea Tree Antiseptic Cream.

You may have heard of the benefits of using tea tree oil for skin or tea tree oil for bug bites. Tea tree antiseptic cream takes those benefits and elevates them. Whether you’re headed on a March Break vacation or just gearing up for spring in Canada, you don’t want to be without a tube or two of Tea Tree Antiseptic Cream.

It’s made of 100% pure tea tree essential oil, a natural antiseptic, and is free from synthetic parabens, petrochemicals, propylene glycol, lauryl sulphates, polysorbates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colours, and animal-derived ingredients. It can provide natural sunburn relief, soothe fly and mosquito bites, and help with minor skin irritations and dry skin, making it perfect for those who like to spend time outdoors.

Tea tree essential oil is soothing and relieves pain and can help reduce blistering and peeling from a sunburn. Even if you managed to stay out of the rays, it can also help rejuvenate and rehydrate dry skin. It will also disinfect and bring down swelling from mosquito bites. The Tea Tree Antiseptic Cream puts all the benefits of tea tree oil together into one package that your skin will love.

Be prepared for your March Break vacation and more. Find out about Thursday Plantation Canada’s Tea Tree Antiseptic Cream at www.thursdayplantationcanada.ca or shop online at www.thursday-plantation-canada.myshopify.com.

We came across this great article from Lonny, which we thought shared some pretty great uses for essential oils – some we hadn’t even heard of!

Here are the ways the article suggests taking advantage:

  • To clear out cooking smells and other interesting kitchen aromas
  • To reduce aches and pains or help your body relax
  • As an all-natural household cleaner
  • To kill airborne bacteria that can make you and your family sick
  • To spruce up an unscented candle
