CEO Still Optimistic About Popularity Of Essential Oils With Parents Despite Recent Controversy
Some schools aren't happy that parents of school-age children are choosing essential oils to solve common health issues
"Many parents feel empowered using essential oils for health issues rather than spending time and money on traditional medicine, " Ms. DeKalb says. "Trusting their instincts and having alternative therapies allows parents to take charge of their children's health. The trend toward natural and organic choices in the home will only become more popular in the years to come."
Schools argue that there is no regulated certification for essential oils, nor are they prescribed by physicians. For that reason, school nurses will not be responsible for storing or administering essential oils to students.
Although many essential oils are on the FDA approved list of ingredients called GRAS (generally recognized as safe), their use is limited to food additives, preservatives, and cosmetics. Any other application falls outside the FDA intended use. As food additives, essential oils are not "medication" under school guidelines.
"With proper research and education, parents can source high-quality essential oils from reputable companies," says Ms. DeKalb. "By their very nature, essential oils are concentrated and potent. Precautions are necessary for some age groups and health conditions. BluePearlz Botanicals does not recommend taking essential oils internally. But there are many benefits from using premium oils in other ways, such as diffusers, creams, and diluted applications."
Many parents have discovered certain essential oils can help with congestion, allergy symptoms, and social anxiety, plus boost energy, improve focus, and increase concentration. Essential oils have become another tool in the backpack for better academic performance. Yet compromise may be necessary to allow children to have the advantages from essential oils while conforming to school rules.
"Parents should see this as an opportunity to educate the educators," Ms. DeKalb says. "Share what they've discovered about essential oils and discuss safety issues with the school. Alternative therapies are gaining exposure every day. Finding common ground with those who teach our children is yet another step forward for the use of essential oils."
