Essential Oils for Kids with Behavioural Conditions

Recently I’ve been having lots of conversations with mums who are struggling with ADHD, Aspergers and similar behavioural conditions with their kids.

I can only imagine what they’re going through and I can completely understand why they want to try essential oils to support and manage their child’s health.

So, I did a bit of research and thought I’d compile it all in one place to make it easy for you.

We all know that every child is different so finding the right oils, and combinations of, that work for your child may take some time.

I’d heard of the ‘Peaceful Child Blend’, which would be a great place to start, but there’s other things we can try.

Let’s start here . . .

Vetiver and Cedarwood

Dr Josh Axe, a popular wellness physician, recommends Vetiver and Cedarwood. According to a US study, Vetiver had a 100% effective rating of ‘treating’ ADHD and Cedarwood had an 83% rating.

Apply two drops of each, diluted for kids, to the neck and temples.
