There are a lot of ways that essential oils can help with ADHD or Autism, but there isn’t a cure-all oil or specific treatment that works for all. Just as both of these disorders have a wide spectrum, so it is with the use of essential oils. The best thing to do is break down individual symptoms and see what things might help support those symptoms. Following are a few things that can be addressed with essential oils:
Encourage Peaceful Sleep
Lavender, Grounding Blend and Frankincense are just three oils that are known to help calm and relax which will aid in better sleep. Rubbing a blend of these oils on the feet before bed can help with sleep. Also, Cedarwood is known to stimulate the Pineal Gland which is known to balance natural melatonin in the body. Melatonin is the hormone in the body that helps sleep happen.
Soothe Depression and Anxiety
Many oils are known for their ability to soothe depression and help anxiety. A few of these oils include Vetiver, Patchouli, Bergamot, Lavender and Grounding Blend. These oils can be diffused in the air, rubbed on feet or wrists to inhale throughout the day.
Builds Confidence and Uplift
When diffused into the air, Bergamot gives feelings of confidence and uplifts. It calms the nerves and brings everything more into balance. It can also be applied topically.
Increase Mental Performance
All of the citrus oils may have a calming effect on a person with ADHD/ADD or Autism, but lemon oil, in particular, can also enhance attention, memory and focus. Lemon can be massaged into the feet or inhaled.
Essential oils can offer many benefits to those suffering from ADHD/ADD or even Autism. Essential oils tend to differ for each individual. The correct oil to use--or combination of essential oils, is often determined through trial and error. Consulting with a Wellness Specialist is a great start because they can offer suggestions, but the best results will be found through testing them for yourself and keeping careful records.
