Ok, so if you hadn’t gathered from the last post, the child is no longer taking her adhd medicine. This has mostly been a good thing. She is perkier and more loving and connecting better emotionally. Most of the time. She is still 13 after all. But then, there’s math. And oh wow does my child not like math. And oh wow has she expressed that dislike to me in the last couple of days.
I need help. And I don’t want to put her on another pharmaceutical. Am officially freaked out by giving my child prescription medicines. I want to try something more natural. I want to try Essential Oils.
But I am totally stuck. I seriously have NO idea where to start. None. Like I went online and people post “recipes” for the perfect adhd blend and it’s this long list of different oils along with “carrier” oils and then talks about roll-ons and diffusers and all manner of witchcraft. I’m kidding about the witchcraft, obvs. But it does seem kinda wibbly wobbly and like maybe I need a cauldron of some kind. Also, people keep telling me the trick is to buy only the “pure” kind and at “wholesale” because otherwise well, it won’t work or I’ll get ripped off. And so I imagine myself walking down a kinda spooky alley and doing a secret knock.
So okay Internet… I’m walking down the alley, and I found the door.
Now… tell me the Secrets of The Fire Swamp. How on earth do I get started on this essential oil journey without buying a crapton of stuff I don’t need and how do I mix it in such a way as to make a useable thing? (and do I need an Eye of Newt? Sorry, can’t help myself. LOL.)
Ok… I know I have like 4 readers, but if some wonderfully knowledgeable Essential Oil Guru happens upon my blog, please share your wisdom! Thanks ever so much.
