It’s that time! Back-to-School. With it comes a combo of relief, wistfulness, and maybe some jitters. Knowing your children have what they need is peace of mind for you, and the first step in their growing independence.
And back-to-school isn't just for the under 18-set. Maybe you’re gearing up to take a class this semester, continuing with getting a degree, or just reveling in what this time of year means; rededication and more structure to your days.
That back-to-school feeling never fails to permeate the air and get under our skin — no matter how old we are. Below are some ways to support yourself— and those you care for— during this annual right of passage.
SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH
Knowing they’re protecting their mental health will never not be a parental concern. It might be too much to expect your student to take a high-performing daily probiotic, but research does support a strong gut biome does wonders for our mind— they’re more likely to take a tasty daily “gummy”. Supernatural HRBLS makes a sugar-free herbal chew in two student-friendly formulas: Nerve Less is a soothing herbal blend that provides a dose of peace, while Everyday Endurance delivers potent energy + metabolism support for daily vitality.
BEING WELL RESTED
Another challenge is being well rested and practicing good “sleep hygiene.” Studies show that a good night’s sleep lets them live their best life during the day— physically, emotionally and intellectually.
Our favorite Ergonomic Eye Mask gives a total blackout experience— making it the best ally for when your student needs to switch off and rest in absolute comfort. Think midday naps, or your high-schooler’s, late night, SAT study session. Adding Magnesium Lotion to the mix can help the body relax, anytime of day.
A FRESH ROOM
Candles and incense can be a fire hazzard for developing minds, and that’s where Soft Healer Mood Mist by La Lyra does a great job at disinfecting and up-lifting with cinnamon + tangerine. Electric Diffusers are also an option! We suggest whatever diffuser you chose, to pair it with Vitruvi Grove Essential Oil Blend. It has a woodsy and fresh scent from pine, fir, spruce, and cedarwood.
Not being sick. It’s #goals. Knowing when to nip illness in the bud is key to avoiding or reducing the time you are laid up. Getting in front of cold and flu are helped with Lypo-Spheric Vitamin-C. If a bug is going around, preemptively take a packet a day— and when under the weather take 2-3 to quickly put being under the weather in the rear view window. Fat of the Land’s Throat, Lung & Cough Tonic is a respiratory blend that replicates our ecosystems’ natural processes of purification. Taken daily it help bolster the immune system in challenging times, COVID to allergies.
PS. A fresh packet of single-use, medical face masks are never a bad idea to have on hand, and if they look good, too, all the better!
PPS. Hegu Acupuncture Rings are 40% off (while supplies last), and are what we think of as the strongest, multi-purpose tool you can have in your apothecary. Well, plus a probiotic. And...
