Back to school is always a super busy time for us, getting the school supply list checked off, school clothes shopping, and getting bedtime schedules on track. In my house I do a few extra chores to get ready for cold season, it never fails a month into school at least one of my kids comes home with a cough. Here are 3 chores I do to prepare, so I’m ready!

Clean My Diffusers

I clean all diffusers with white vinegar and water. This time I used half water and half vinegar because my diffusers were super gross. I must have got really lazy about cleaning them at the end of last year. It’s good practice to clean them about once a month. If I’m on top of things and I’m cleaning them regularly  I use 2 or 3 cap fulls of vinegar with water. But this time there was a lot of vinegar, it took a few times of running just water to get rid of the vinegar smell. Tip. Put diffusers outside when cleaning. I’ve tried to clean the inside before with a much smaller diffuser, thankfully, and my house smelled like vinegar for days. After diffusing the vinegar, water mix take a wash cloth and wipe out the bottom and all surfaces you can get too.

Make Hand Washing Soap


I blend a hand soap that is high in properties that kill those little pesky germs. Learn more about how I did this Here.  I love making my own soap because you can dress it up and customize the scent how ever you want. I love the holiday season so I’m getting super pumped and trying to plan my Christmas soap now!! 


Make A Chest Rubs
I make this every year in preparation for the cold season.


15 ML Glass Jar
Coconut Oil
Tea Tree
Eucalyptus
Lemon
Peppermint

I rub this blend on anyone who coughs in my house!! Husband, my kids, even the neighbor’s kids. This blend really helps to suppress the cough and open up the airways. 


I hope that everyone is having a blast this back to school season! Stay healthy and happy learning!!
