Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

A friend and coworker of my husband's sent me some samples of Lavender, Cedarwood, Peppermint, and Peace & Calming essential oils. I was skeptical about how they would work, but after battling it out with a child with ADHD (and no medication because I had run out), I decided it couldn't hurt anything.

I put a couple drops of each essential oil in my son's hands and had him rub them on his head and neck. Within the next few minutes it was as if I had given my son his usual remedy.

This oil application completely changed the way my child acted within a matter of minutes. These essential oils worked better than anything else we have tried. My son now would rather have his oils than the side-effect-laden alternatives.

I am also going to start giving him NingXia Red. He tried a sample (and hadn't had his medication yet), and it calmed him down.

"The results indicate that children's shared attention behaviors increased during aromatherapy massage and that other aspects of their behavior also changed over the course of the research. Family involvement in the study enabled these changes to be transferred from school to home....
