Backpack Essentials: Teacher Gifts No ratings yet.

As a former teacher, I can speak for all educators when I say that teachers work hard for your children, so one of the biggest backpack essentials is teacher gifts!

I can also say that when teachers feel appreciated and cared for after pouring their hearts out to your children, it is refreshing.

This post is full of toxin-free gifts any teacher would be thankful to receive!

TOOL: Love Your Teachers

Best Toxin-Free Teacher Gifts

Stress Away Roller:

10 drops Stress Away in a roller bottle and fill the rest with carrier oil.

Stress Relief Bath Bombs:

Buy these from Young Living or make this DIY:

You’ll need:


  1. Add dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients (including essential oils).
  3. Pour liquid into dry, and mix slowly until it’s crumbly.
  4. Pack some of the mixture into the mold, and sit out to dry for a few hours or overnight.
  5. To package them, try a cute bag, or if it’s for Christmas, you could even use circular molds and make them into a snowman!

Wake Up Inhaler:

Help your children’s teachers wake up in the morning with a fresh scent. A couple deep breaths, and he/she will feel recharged and ready to start the day.

I would put this with a Stress Away roller and zip it up in a bag, so he/she can keep it in a desk drawer!

Zyng Energy Drink:

This extra-invigorating way to start the morning is a naturally sweet twist that packs a powerful punch when it comes to supporting great health!

Supporting cognition, this drink has wolfberry puree found in the popular superfruit supplement, NingXia Red®.

Sparkling water, pear, blackberry juices, and a hint of Lime and Black Pepper essential oils create a dynamic taste without artificial flavors and preservatives.

With natural flavors and sweeteners, white tea extract, and added vitamins, NingXia Zyng delivers 35 mg of naturally occurring caffeine and only 35 calories per can, making it a  guilt-free way to start the day.

We can’t say that about any other energy drink out there!

Thieves Roller:

Why not gift the blessing of wellness through Thieves?

Grab your favorite roller bottle and add 10 drops of Thieves blend, and fill the rest with carrier oil.

It’s that simple!

Diffuser + Samples:

Whether you choose one of Young Living’s beautiful diffusers or something like this, it’s always an amazing way to show your appreciation and how much you value the students in the classroom when you give a gift like this!

DIY Lotion:

This DIY recipe is amazing because you can add whatever essential oils you’d like.

Not a DIY-er?

No worries!

Try this amazing Lavender option or the Genesis option with Geranium, Palmarosa, Bergamot, and other pure essential oils for a lovely scent that your teacher is sure to love!

Thieves Hand Sanitizer:

Let your teacher know with a loving note that the typical Purell, Germ-X, or even generic brand sanitizers are too scary to be in a classroom with sweet, developing bodies!

Then gift her a three pack of the best and safest hand sanitizer out there: Thieves Hand Sanitizer!

Rather DIY?

You’ll need:

Use a simple funnel like this one and add it to a silicone travel bottle or full size bottles for around the classroom.
Even better? Grab up some of these adorable recipe cards and send the recipe with the gift, so she can continue making these for your child’s classroom!

DIY Hand Soap:

This couldn’t be simpler if it tried!

Fill a foam pump 1/3 of the way with castile soap and the rest with water. If you want to add in some great smelling oils, go for it!

Just make sure you don’t mix plastic and citrus oils.

DIY Chapstick:

Try my favorite DIY chapstick. It’s the most fun to give as a teacher gift because everyone who uses it loves it so much!

Not a DIY-er?

No worries!

Try Young Living’s great oil-infused chapsticks, instead!

Sleep Tight Roller:

Teachers have your little ones on their minds, and speaking from experience, it can sometimes be tough to shut off the teacher brain to get much-needed rest each night!

Give the gift of sleep!

Fill your favorite roller bottle with 10 drops Lavender, 10 drops Cedarwood, and 5 drops Peace & Calming. Then fill the rest of the bottle with carrier oil.
