✏️  This is our 'Back to School Survival Kit',

aka; the doTERRA Kid's Collection Sample Kit!  🖍

With the tiny sample rollers we sent, 

you can experience & learn how to use these tools

to support your kids' developing minds, bodies and emotions.

•    Open your mini kit & smell each oil, roll them on!

We find putting them on yourself first, in front of your kids, piques their natural curiosity, and they will ask about it, if they an hav some too, etc.
•    As long as you keep oils away from the eyes and genitals, and do not put inside nose or ears - there is no wrong way to use these oils - they're super gentle, ultra safe, and still very effective.
•    Send your 'oil person' a quick message letting them know you got them!

Below are our best tips for how to use these with your kids.

We'd love to hear about your experiences when you try these with your little ones!

Here are my tips to help introduce your kids if they're at all timid or nervous about trying new things:

And now, on to these awesome oils...

CALMER: The Restful Blend

Raise your hand if you could use a better night's sleep 🙋🏽‍♀️

Kids and parents both benefit from a good night’s rest, which is why we’re genuinely excited to introduce the Calmer™ ‘Restful Blend’ to you.

This kid-friendly (kid approved!) blend works to provide soothing and relaxing feelings throughout the body and promote a positive, stress-free mood.

The blend is made of
Lavender, Cananga, Buddha Wood, and Roman Chamomile essential oils in a gentle, convenient and safe delivery method, and possesses skin moisturizing benefits thanks to the Fractionated Coconut Oil base.

Calmer is a comforting addition to your nightly bath or bedtime ritual.

This blend helps our littles (and parents!) relax, reducing periodic feelings of stress and anxiousness. When it's time to restore your mind and body, apply Calmer to your wrists, breathe, and relax.

How to use CALMER

  • Transition to quiet time from energetic activities or play time by applying calmer to the back of their neck, and on their wrists. Have them inhale from their wrists a few times deeply.

  • Apply to feet, neck or temples before & during long car rides.

  • Apply Calmer to your kiddo’s wrists at the end of the day, to help diminish worry and quiet restlessness.

  • Apply to the bottoms of feet at bedtime to reinforce their bedtime routine and help encourage a restful mood before going to sleep.

Here's a short video Yolanda created for Calmer









BRAVE: The Courage Blend

When you think of BEING BRAVE, what comes to mind?

Our kids are challenged in every way as they grow, and it’s incredibly empowering to have tools that help prepare them for the tough situations they face.

The Brave™ Courage Blend of
Wild Orange, Amyris, Osmanthus, Cinnamon, and FCO is near and dear to us.

These essential oils invigorate the senses, with a fresh, warming aroma, while supporting positive perspectives and emotions.

Physiologically, they help the body balance and manage stress caused by anxiousness, and promote feelings of confidence, courage, and support our little ones’ efforts to build belief in themselves.

How to use BRAVE

  • Show your child how to apply the Brave Courage Blend on their wrists and let them know they can use it any time they want to. This helps teach kids how to recognize and acknowledge their emotions, and provides a tool that supports a healthy, positive and effective response.

  • Apply Brave along the back of their neck and back, or on their chest, before new experiences (eg. first day of school) anytime you want to help them feel courageous and confident.

Here’s Kelly's video about BRAVE and why her kids love it. Roll some on before you watch it, and let us know how you like it.








RESCUER: The Soothing Blend

Kids will be kids…running, jumping, playing, and just being silly can lead to sore muscles.

Just simply growing can be hard work, that tires out those little muscles and bones.

Gently massage Rescuer onto those little, legs, feet, or back to soothe and support their active, growing body.

The Rescuer™ Soothing Blend of
Copaiba, Spearmint, Zanthoxylum, Lavender, and FCO is gentle yet effective.

It’s meant for children of all ages, even those young at heart, so we're not going to be surprised when you tell us you need it for yourself, too! ;)

What could you see the Rescuer™ Soothing Blend being particularly useful for with your kids?

How to use RESCUER
•    Roll Rescuer onto tired legs before bedtime or after a busy, active day. and gently massage it in
•    Apply to the back of their neck to reduce feelings of tension and acheyness
•    Massage into their shoulders, neck, and back for a comforting and soothing experience

Here's Lindsay sharing how she uses Rescuer with her kids.










If you haven’t stopped to use any of the blends yet, we highly encourage you to take a break in reviewing this information and experience the oils you’ve learned about so far.


Words don’t teach - experience does. You may discover something special & unique that we haven’t yet!


doTERRA's essential oils provide the greatest benefit when they are used regularly.

Providing stable, frequent support for your kids helps their systems to more easily  achieve & maintain balance, physiologically, which leads to more pleasant overall behaviour and demeanour, as they experiences fewer extremes in their highs and low’s.


STEADY: The Grounding Blend

Moms, Dads, Caregivers...yes, we're thinking and talking about the kids as we discover this blend, and at this moment, we want to invite you to think about how you might like the Steady Grounding Blend for yourself.

Don't you LOVE how it smells? (For sure, they all smell amazing though.)

We'll let you in on a little secret - we ALL love using this blend on ourselves! Shhhh!

doTERRA’s kid-friendly
Steady™ Grounding Blend works to evoke a calm and balanced mood, promote feelings of relaxation and calmness, and helps focus little minds on the task at hand. This blend is made up of Amyris, Balsam Fir, Coriander, and Magnolia in an FCO base.

Can you think of a time where the Steady would be useful?

On the way to school perhaps?

During a tutoring session?

Maybe this is when you both needs it most.


Try rolling it on your neck before you give them a huge hug, they'll melt into you!

How to use STEADY

  • To help calm highly active kids, try applying Steady to their spine, neck, wrists or temples a half hour before leaving for school or Church, especially if they normally fight or fuss at all about going

  • Apply steady to their spine, neck, wrists or temples prior to situations you know are normally difficult for them - doctor and dentists appointments come to mind

  • After their bath, apply to the bottoms of the feet to prepare them for a calm and restful bedtime routine

Yo's back to share her pro tips for when to use Steady.










STRONGER: The Protective Blend

Kids are amazing and little superheroes in their own right! Constantly on the go, always helping their friends, growing at an incredible rate, and always putting smiles on the faces & hearts of those around them.

Even superheroes need a little help, of course, and that’s where the Stronger Protective Blend comes into play.

The kid-approved Stronger Protective Blend helps the body boost wellness and vitality, build resiliency, and help comfort occasional skin irritations. This is a really special blend of Litsea, Rose, Cedarwood, and Frankincense, as always in a base of FCO.

How to use STRONGER

  • When everyone seems to be under the weather, apply Stronger to the bottom of your kid's feet - every night before bed - to help them feel strong and well

  • Soothe their body by rolling the blend onto their arms, knees, and feet after a long day

  • Stronger is a great blend to have on hand during outdoor activities, it's soothing to occasional or minor skin irritations

THINKER: The Focus Blend

Thinker is delightful, cheery blend of
Vetiver, Peppermint, Clementine, and Rosemary essential oils in a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO) that is handy to apply topically during test time, school, homework time, a study session, or even during sports or music lesson.

Create a supportive and positive environment for enhanced creativity and focus, and make this your secret weapon for gettin' it done.

How to use THINKER

  • Help them settle down and concentrate by applying some to their hands and having them breathe it in deeply a few times before sitting down to do some homework, before music lessons, or story-time, soccer practice, dance lessons

  • Inspire their sense of alertness and focus by teaching them to apply thinker to their wrists when they get to school in the morning, and after lunch or recess breaks
