Is Your Class a Bit **FUNKY** After Recess?
I absolutely 100% believe that kids need recess - a LOT of it. However, I live in Phoenix and it gets hot here in the spring - that means after recess I not only have amped up kiddos to calm down, but they are FRAGRANT - and not like a flower!
I've tried so many things - Fabreeze, sprays from Bath & Body Works, plug ins and NONE of them helped. Thank goodness for my coworkers - they always come to the rescue! Not one, not two, but THREE other fourth grade teachers use oil diffusers in their classrooms. Not only do I love my team, but I really respect the opinion of each of these women as they are all incredibly informed, health conscious and very aware of what is best for their (and my) kiddos.

ordered my diffuser and a bottle of peppermint essential oil from Amazon (see affliate links above) because well, I buy just about EVERYTHING there and I have to admit - I'm pretty impressed.
I tried it out in my home first because I had to make sure I could handle it (I'm very sensitive to smells and I have asthma so I wanted to make sure it would work) and WOW - the smell is fantastic! I have two dogs that I love very much - but they use our pool daily and I have to admit wet dog is not my favorite aroma.
Using this diffuser really helps get rid of that wet dog smell and it doesn't just smell like it's covered up - it seems to make it vanish! Anyway, after passing the test at my home, I took it to school. However, some of the kiddos did not like the peppermint smell, or they noticed it to the point where it became a distraction - so I'll have to look for something that won't bother them (or me) and will also help with that after recess aroma. I'm thinking about trying this pack:
Do you use a diffuser and if so, do you have any recommendations for fragrances to use in it?
