ADHD and Essential Oils

ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurobehavioral disorder that causes an inability to focus, listen to direction, over activity, and impulsiveness. There has been a dramatic increase of children being diagnosed with ADHD. 

While prescription medications may be effective in some children there is a long list of side effects that come with them which include: restlessness or tremor; anxiety or nervousness; headache or dizziness; insomnia; diarrhea or constipation; stomach pain; increased blood pressure; psychosis (abnormal thinking or hallucinations); cardiac arrhythmia; mood swings.

You can help to treat ADHD with essential oils and avoid the side effects of prescription medication. 

Rosemary and Lavender can be used to regulate the dopamine levels as well as the Lavender being calming and relaxing.

Vetiver on the bottom of the feet can help improve concentration and is also helpful with stress and anxiety. 

Balance can be used to calm and help balance emotions by diffusing into air.

Frankincense can relax, uplift mood, and heighten awareness.

Life Long Vitality Pack Supplements taken every day can give the body needed nutritional balance.

These oils along with a healthy diet, exercise, and some simple lifestyle changes can make a huge difference!
