If your kids are going back to school in person this Fall, we have some tried and true must-have school supplies that you probably don’t have on your back to school list!!  So make sure to stock up on these items because you are definitely going to want them on hand!! 

Revive Essential Oils

I love essential oils.  However, I don’t like the cost associated with them!  But I’m really glad I found out about Revive Essential Oils.  They are comparable to Young Living at a fraction of the cost and I don’t have to buy hundreds of dollars of products at once!!  I can buy 1 or 2 oils when I need them and I’m not locked into anything. With COVID going nowhere, now is the time to strengthen your immune system!  


I started small and made my own toothpaste with their Immunity blend (aka Thieves), coconut oil, and baking soda.  I had inflamed gums around a crown I had gotten over 10 years ago.  After about a month of using this toothpaste, my gums stopped bleeding and the dentist said they were starting to heal.    So I was hooked and have bought a lot more and my whole family uses them for in a diffuser, on our body, for immunity, pain relief and I even make a concoction for my kids hair when school is in session for lice prevention!!

Fairy Tales Shampoo & Conditioner (lice repel combo)


My daughter has really long hair, and while it’s thin, she has a lot of it.  I’m afraid of lice.  I know it’s really common to get from other kids, but I don’t want it.  So I make sure I am stocked with Fairy Tales Shampoo, Conditioner, and Leave-in Conditioner all year long!  We haven’t had an incident yet, so I’ll keep buying it!!  Plus, my daughter’s hair is shiny, soft, and tangle-free!!

Mabel’s Labels


This year more than ever, you don’t want your kid to come home with someone else’s water bottle or another random item in their backpack!!  Label everything with Mabel’s Labels and have peace of mind!!  Mabel’s Labels come in a waterproof variety, so feel free to put them on water bottles, thermos’, clothes, books, and everything in between!!  


Mabel’s Labels are also customizable, so you don’t have to do anything other than peel and stick!  



I love Primary clothing for my daughter!!  It’s high quality, cute and goes with everything!!  Their leggings are the best around, durable, soft and the best thing is, you can’t see thru them.  They also come in a ton of different colors and Primary has started to do more patterns and trendy prints!  If you click HERE, you can get 20% off if you are a first-time buyer just make sure to use the code that pops up at the top of your screen!!  

Organic Elderberries


Since December, I’ve been making Elderberry Syrup for my family.  My husband works at a hospital, so he comes into contact with every germ imaginable!!  Elderberries have a ton of health benefits, mainly to increase your immune system.  So, in the age of 2020, we need as much immune power as possible!!  


PS—this is my favorite recipe for Elderberry syrup.  You can also make them as gummies!  

Kids’ Disposible Face Mask


I like to have these on hand, just in case!  Just in case their cloth one gets lost or it falls out of their backpack or gets wet or 999 other things that kids do to things, I have these in my back pocket!!  They come in boys’ and girls’ patterns and have good reviews!  


PS–these are also great if your kids are playing sports and they need to wear a mask.  If they get dirty, just throw away and you can save yourself from doing a load of laundry 🙂
