Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Essential oils have become an integral part of our home schooling classroom. My 10-year-old son often selects which oils he wants (or needs) to have diffused in our room, but often I chose which oils to help each of us with focus, attention and attitude for the day.

Cedarwood is high in sesquiterpenes and often finds a way into our diffuser. Some of our other favorites for the classroom include the Clarity and Motivation blends along with Orange oil.

Some other oils we use during learning time are the Brain Power blend and Vetiver. Because these two choices are more valuable than the oils listed above, I typically try to retain these for topical use in an attempt to get the most bang for my buck out of them!

I like to place one drop on the crown of my son's head, rub it in with my finger and then use the same finger to sweep upward on the back of his neck, toward his brainstem. We both then always take some time to deeply inhale the aroma of the Brain Power or Vetiver, (with several deep breaths in and out), before moving along with our day.

We both enjoy using oils to help us get the most out of our home schooling experience. I love it when my son knows exactly what he wants (or needs) in the diffuser.

Just a couple of weeks ago we sat down at our desks early in the morning and I had not yet prepared our classroom diffuser to run. I was distracted by something else and was caught by surprise when he suggested, "Mom, I think today we need some Motivation with a hint of Orange..."

He was right!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: mental — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: mental — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
3.Associated topics: mental — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
4.Associated topics: mental — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
5.Associated topics: mental — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
