Role of essential oils in the treatment and management of ADHD

A semi-qualitative study performed on students with ADHD (ages 11-12) showed positive results when essential oils were used. Concentration improved and students stayed calmer, longer, and recovered quickly from upsets. There were fewer disruptions to lessons.

Several essential oils are recommended, including:
  • bergamot;
  • cedarwood
  • clary sage;
  • eucalyptus; 
  • frankincense 
  • geranium
  • lavender
  • orange
  • patchouli;
  • peppermint;
  • rosemary;
  • sandalwood; and
  • ylang ylang.
