As some of you may or may not know, I have a 16 year old boy who is severely autistic, he doesn't speak and needs constant help. He is a sweet spirit and I love him with all my heart! He is ALWAYS moving and on the go! And I mean ALWAYS!! He does NOT have an off switch. A couple weeks ago, we were sitting in church and he was so hyper and loud, more than usual, so I reached for my Balance essential Oil blend and began to put it on his neck and forehead. What happened next was astounding! Within 5 minutes, he was completely calm and quiet. I was shocked! I didn't think I would get such a quick reaction to this oil with him. I couldn't believe it!
Now, I use this on him each Sunday during church so that he can be more calm. I know there are other oils that may work best for him, but it's exciting to find out this information. I hope it may help someone out there that wants to go a more natural route with their children and/or self.
There are several oils that can be used for autism and ADD/ADHD that I have only scratched the surface. I am going to delve into this subject a lot more and I will definitely share what I find. You see, I do NOT want to medicate my child if it's not necessary and just because he's a happy, loud, hyper active child doesn't mean he deserves to be sedated. (This is my personal opinion for my child only).
For now, every time I pull out the oil, he smiles at me and waits for me to apply it. I love it!
