In 2014, the most loving, curious, inquisitive little boy set me on a journey.
A journey within to follow my heart. This special little man has ADHD, I knew in my heart before we heard the words. I embraced it and we welcomed this to our lifestyle.
As a family we now all embrace and live an ADHD lifestyle!
On my journey I was in search of something natural that would support the body systems that ADHD affects. What I found was even better!
The essential oils we use daily to support ADHD in our home are:
- NEW ADAPTIV – The Oil of Adaptability
This new blend has been a daily staple since we received it in October! A true blessing for supporting mental health at literally any time of the day morning or night this blend is both comforting/calming and uplifting!
- Balance – The Oil of Grounding
This is a blend of tree oils, frankincense and flower oils. A beautiful blend to calm and relax the mind and body.
- Cedarwood – The Oil of Community
Relaxing to the mind and body, peaceful, eases nervous tension.
- Vetiver – The Oil of Centering and Descent
Supportive to nervous or anxious feelings. Vetiver is rich in sesquiterpenes that have grounding properties. Calming and grounding on emotions. Immune supporting properties. Great for sleep and relaxation.

Its also important to support your body & mind naturally on a regular basis as well. To do this we use the Top 10 Essential Oils in our home! It is incredible what they can support for our physical and emotional health. Using the oils on a daily basis either topically, aromatically or internally can boost your immune system and support healthy function of your body.
The other thing Ive learned on this journey is gut health is crucial! For all children but especially for our beloved ADHD’ers! I trust and use the doTERRA supplements (for myself) as well as for our children. One they love and supports their gut health beautifully is our PB Assist Jr probiotics! If you or your kids have ever been on antibiotics… which many of us have – probiotics are a must have to get the good bacteria into the gut again!
Our bedtime routine is after our normal oil routine is finished many nights the kids will select their own “bedtime” oils for back and tummy massages to begin to settle their bodies and minds for the night. My husband also does their bedtime diffuser routine with oils he feels are supportive to their sleep and wellbeing.
If you are interested in supporting your body with doTERRA Essential Oils please reach out to me I would be delighted to help you experience the oils in your own home!
