Essential Oils for Health and Calming

My students need a diffuser and a variety of essential oils to stay healthy!

My Students

As a Special Education teacher, I work with students who need academic and behavior support. At my school, I am able to have one hundred percent of inclusion in the classrooms, unless a student requires accommodations for testing. I feel honored students feel comfortable enough to want to come to me and share a part of their day.

I would like to offer additional tools for students when they are with me to continue their support needs.

As an alternative high school, new and exciting resources are welcomed for all students in the school to use! There are times when students need additional resources to grasp the concept of the task(s) being taught.

Thank you for your time and interest in my students. I am working to be proactive with my students, school, and community to offer more hands-on ways to learn.

My Project

Whether you are a teacher, student, or parent you can benefit in several ways by incorporating a diffuser and essential oils into your daily school routine. Essential oils will help the students relax and focus.

Essential oils in the classroom help to protect against seasonal threats.

We all know seasonal threats are a major issue we all face when it comes to a room full of kiddos. Even in our homes, we want the environment to be as clean as possible. Essential oils can be a huge help in this battle. Having a variety of essential oils to use in the classroom will allow us to choose the scent depending on the needs of the day. There are essential oils to support healthy immune function and contains cleansing properties. The oils support healthy immune and respiratory function, protects against environmental threats, and supports the body’s natural antioxidant defenses.

I like to make my classroom and the school office an area that is refreshing, calming, healthy for students and staff.
