For the parents of around 6 million schoolchildren, from little children to towering teens, the alarm clock will be going off with a vengeance[i]. It’s that time of year again to begin the familiar bedtime and mealtime routines, stock up on new stationary and school uniforms and pack the kids off back to school. The start of term can be a mixture of excitement and unease – make sure you’re prepared this year with the Nelsons Back-to-School Kit.


First Aid

With playground fun, after school clubs and sports days on the horizon it’s all too easy for accidents to happen. Be prepared with a compact tube of Nelsons Tea Tree Cream. Prepared using the purest Tea Tree oil from Australia, Nelsons Tea Tree cream is a natural antiseptic making it the perfect cream for minor mishaps. It is easily absorbed and soothing, meaning that little ones can get back up and running in no time!


Arnicare™ Arnica Kids Stick is designed for active little ones in a fun, fast-absorbing stick, specially formulated for children’s delicate skin, helping to keep it soft and supple. A unique, pocket-sized item, the purple balm simply glides on and is non-greasy and paraben free. Enriched with Shea Butter it has been developed with extracts of natural Arnica Montana.


Emotional Aid

Heading back to school can be a roller coaster of emotions for both parents and kids alike. Bach™ Original Flower Remedies can help the whole family deal with the emotions of going back to school.

For kids

  • Walnut* - To help your child adjust to the change of environment and to protect them from being influenced by new school chums.
  • Mimulus* – If your child is worried about starting a new school or is shy and timid in nature.
  • Larch* – They may need an extra helping hand to make new friends, if your child is lacking in confidence.


And for mums and dads

  • Red Chestnut* – many mums find it difficult to let go and leave their little ones at school, especially if it’s their first year. Red Chestnut can help parents relax and lift the worry.

* Always read the label


Mum’s school run handbag essential
