Oils for Calming

I had a request to talk about Vetiver, so I’m going to do that, as well as Cedarwood. Both are calming oils and may help with ADHD and sleep. They both have some other great benefits too!

(Info from my Essential Oils Desk Reference, 6th Edition by Life Science Publishing.)

Vetiver is an antiseptic, antispasmodic, relaxant, and a circulatory stimulant. Some uses for Vetiver are: ADHD, anxiety, rheumatism/arthritis, depression (including postpartum), insomnia, and skin care.

Terry Friedmann, MD, found in preliminary clinical tests that Vetiver may be successful in the treatment of ADD and ADHD in children. (2002)

Cedarwood

Cedarwood is steam distilled from the bark of the tree. The medical properties are that they combat hair loss, antibacterial, and lymphatic stimulant. In a Facebook group I’m in, it’s AMAZING to see the hair growth in people after putting a few drops of Cedarwood on their shampoo! Some other uses are ADHD, skin problems (acne/eczema), and is gentle enough for all ages. Cedarwood stimulates the pineal gland, which releases melatonin. You can apply on location and/or Vitaflex points. Can be inhaled directly and diffused.
