What is ADD/ADHD? Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a behavioral condition found in about 11% of school age children. These children find it difficult to sit still, pay attention and control their behavior many times during the day. The symptoms persist into adulthood in about 3/4 of all cases. Characteristics of ADD/ADHD are difficulty concentrating, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. In ADD, the hyperactivity is absent. Science has discovered that ADHD may be genetic and other causes might include a leaky gut, a high sugar diet, food sensitivities and exposure to toxins like pesticides or lead.

A 2001 study found that vetiver essential oil is effective in helping children with ADHD. When I was a principal, there were many children in my schools with ADHD/ADD. Anything that could help them would have pleased me so here is a blend that can possibly help your ADD/ADHD child (or you) focus.

Combine 1-2 drops of vetiver essential oil with a carrier oil and apply it to the wrists or behind the ears. For even more calmness and focus, add ylang ylang and lavender oils to your blend. This will also work for adults who still have difficulty focusing.
