10 Comments & Reviews: Essential Oils

  1. For the love of God, do not think essential oils are going to treat your kid’s ADD! I used to believe in all these hocus pocus remedies with severe consequences to my life, work, and relationships. Use evidenced-based treatments!

  2. Hello Bugnhop

    I would appreciate some advice. Where do you get your essential oils from? Especially the intune essential oils?
    Thanks in advance.

  3. Hello Frasnico, please advise me. Where do you get your essential oils from? I am new at this. Thanks in advance

  4. As a Certified Aromatherapist Health Professional, I love to use essential oils with kids to help them focus, calm down, change their mood and behaviour, and so much more. It is one piece of the puzzle, but a very big piece. Diet is also important to go along with essential oils. Some of my go to`s include vetiver, cedarwood, lavender, sandalwood, orange, roman chamomile, along with InTude, Balance, Serenity blends.
    It is a shame you still have outdated information in the article. The study that is mentioned about lavender is not accurate and has been stated by many highly qualified scientists and aromatherapists around the world.
    It is important when using essential oils to use pure therapeutic grade, not fragrance oils, and oils that are also safe for the age of your child, and if they have any other oc-occuring conditions.

  5. Please review the most recent studies on Lavender essential oil. The info you mentioned about it’s effect on boys has totally been discounted and revoked. It’s a wonderful oil and a shame that misinformation is still misleading to so many to avoid the essential oil. Qss

  6. We have used essential oils for stress and to help with sleep. I also think taking a good quality supplements helps. But they are expensive when the quality is there. Supplements for instances should not have sugars, dyes or fillers. Many of the over counter ones do.

  7. Focus Essential oil blend has worked well for my son. He definitely concentrates on homework better and is calmer. It is by Biosource Naturals. There is a website with a lot of information about it. I bought it on Amazon. It has lavender, vetiver and cedarwood which all help ADHD and ASD. I put the concentrate in an oil burner so the room smells. It has a roll on goo with carrier oil so we apply it to the feet at night and back of neck night morning. It is a lot less expensive than Young Living or DoTerra and works pretty well.

  8. I enjoy Young Living essential oils. My son uses Vetiver and Cedarwood on his big toe and on the back of his neck, but refuses Lavender because the smell offends him (silly boy, lavender is the best smelling of the bunch). I find that when I use them, he does great. When I forget/get busy in the daily grind, I get a call from the school. I understand the concerns about the product being in the higher cost range, but for me, the quality is worth it when researching the creation/seed to seal process compared to contracting with outside vendors. Everyone has their beliefs and opinions and I am always happy to hear and respect everyone’s thoughts, but in my personal experience, I really enjoy what these oils have done for my family.

  9. My 7-year-old daughter and I both have ADHD and we’ve been using doTerra essential oils for about 3 months and are loving it we use InTune, Peaceful Child, Pure Focus; every single morning they are in roller bottles super easy to put on and they last for the first part of the morning and then we put it on again at lunch time. at bedtime we use serenity which puts us both to sleep I used all my oils on my three girls and anybody else who needs it most amazing and wonderful discovery and I’ll never stop using essential oils. There’s an oil for every type of discomfort ailments disability disease; you name it and it’s is out there!
    P.S. I’ve also started using energy stones

  10. Yes! EO’s do work! We use InTune on feet in the morning. It’s amazing. Some days I have to use it 2-3 times. I can definitely tell when I don’t use it. Let me know if you need more information. My son will ask for it when he is doing homework!
