Teens and Better Mornings with Essential Oils
If you’ve ever shared a house with a teenager (bless you and your cardiovascular health), then you’ll understand the challenge of trying and getting their lanky, unreasonably long limbs untangled from blankets and balanced on their colossal feet before noon. Medical professionals know that kids need more sleep … and parents know that teenagers often choose not to get it. It can make weekday mornings something of a challenge for families … especially in winter, when shorter days keep it dark many mornings and 7 a.m. still feels like the dead of night.
Good habits can help teens wake up and (here’s the key) stay awake in the morning. A regular bedtime, banning screens from the bedroom, and a healthy breakfast will give you a good start … and essential oil diffusion can be an important part of the routine. N8 Essential’s certified organic Energize Blend is a sweet combination of premier natural constituents designed to work on both a physical and mental level to naturally wake up body and brain. And, the great thing about this sweet blend is that you don’t necessarily have to be in your teenager’s face for them to enjoy the benefits. Placing a few personal care products in their stumbling path every morning can do the trick … Energize Blend infused shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion all offer the sweet natural energy found in these essential oils while your teenagers do what they do in the bathroom every morning … for an unreasonably long time.
Or, if you feel like getting more in their face for some morning attitude adjustment, there is a way to do that too. Diffuse a few drops of Energize Blend combined with certified organic clary sage and a drop or two of certified organic frankincense in their bedroom in the morning. The Energize Blend helps body and brain to move to a higher level of alertness, the organic clary sage works to balance and lift the mood, and grounding organic frankincense helps the aromatherapy effect to last beyond the first bell of the morning.
There is no guarantee that using Energize essential oil blend around your teen will mean they’ll save you any hot water this week, but at least they’ll have a smile on their face while they use it up.
