The essential oil issue has arisen several times over the past couple of years, and certainly does present some challenges as to how to monitor their use in the school setting. I am attaching the procedure that I use for guiding their usage here at my school.
I believe this was brought up in the last couple of months, but I can't seem to find it. I have a request from a parent to allow their 4th grader to use essential oils (3x/day) throughout the school day to help "recenter" the student. How do other elementary school nurses handle this situation? What kind of documentation is required?
