Homeschooling With Essential Oils

HSS-YLEO College

Home schooling can be mentally and emotionally exhausting for the parent of an ADHD child.  Does your child lend assistance in draining your emotional and mental well-being? Do you feel as though you’re unsure what to do with them? Are their behaviors off the chart? Do they already have a diagnosis that begins with 1 of the 26 letters of the alphabet, but ends in D?  I have 2 kids that are considered on the spectrum. One child is diagnosed with aspergers and ADHD and one with PDDNOS and ADHD.  We made the decision to try medication on the boys because it seemed to be the right decision at the time.  However, now we have felt God leading us to a natural way of treating our children.  I have used essential oils in the past for various reasons, but not for treatment. That is when I found out about Young Living Essential Oils!

Did you know that you can use them to help your children in home school or any school?!  I was so excited to see and try these oils on my own children! Soon after my kit arrived, I began pouring over it. Then I ordered some more books and poured over them.  Since then, I have been making recipes and deciding what I needed to use for my kids.
I can tell you that they really do have amazing results!
Here are some of the supplements we love!
OmegaGize- This is a supplement that is full of omega 3 and fish oil.  It is a huge help for brain function and concentration. It also helps with digestive elements to support healthy gut function.
ImmuPro- Aids the immune system. It also boosts melatonin levels, which can decrease anxiety and restlessness.
MightyZyme- Designed to help children combat negative effects of enzyme depletion.
There are more we are adding in this coming week!
YLEO-Oils for Autism-1
Here is a breakdown on how some of the oils listed in the pictures work.
  • Brain Power – Supports mental clarity and concentration. Also, increases natural melatonin which helps regulate sleep!
  • Frankincense – Arouses the limbic system of the brain and promotes higher concentration
  • Cedarwood – Calming and purifying. Also, can increase melatonin naturally. Helping concentration in the day and sleep at night.
  • Lavender – Calms and relaxes the nervous system.
  • Peace & Calming – Helps to reduce nervousness, stress and depression, may help calm over active children! (It works:))
  • Valor – Detoxifies, promotes courage and self-esteem. Balances the body, also, so it helps with sleep and wake cycles.
  • Vetiver – Calms and relaxes. Helps with anger, irritability, and neurotic behaviors as well.
  • Joy – Uplifting, may help with depression.
Friends, I have trudged through these hard days as well.  I have struggled with reaching my child at times, but more importantly, reaching his heart.  These are just a few of the reasons that led us to medicine; however, these are also just a few of the reasons that has led us to essential oils and natural supplements. One of the most effective ways of treating ADHD and Autism is with oils and supplements – pure therapeutic essential oils – according to a study in 2001.
Here is the snippets from the study:

“The American Medical Association Journal published a two-year case study (1999-2001). Stating that Dr. Terry Friedmann M.D. found children who previously had been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD were administered therapeutic essential oils by inhalation that got noteworthy results. The essential oils used were Lavender, Cedarwood and Vetiver”

This is how Dr Friedmann used the oil; one was inhaled 3 times a day for 30 days. There was also a device used at bedtime to receive constant inhalation of the essential oil. Dr. Friedmann found by using the inhalation process with the oils, they demonstrated to help in settling the brain waves back into patterns that were considered normal. He also found that the children had improved in not only their school performance but also how they behaved.

Dr. Friedmann found a 53% performance increase with Lavender, 83% performance increase with Cedarwood, and 100% performance increase with Vetiver.

So far while we are still very much on a path to recovery, I have noticed huge changes! We have been able to decrease certain medications! We have also noticed huge differences in focus, schoolwork, chores, and overall behavior.  I have been using the supplements on all 3 of my children, including my youngest who has no diagnosis.  It is really amazing what these oils can do.
