Essential oils for ADD / ADHD: Scattered, Unfocused, not getting anything done? Vetiver, Frankincense, Cypress and Rosemary

6

Are you feeling scattered and can’t focus, are you all over the place and nowhere in particular and get nothing finished or done?
Yes, I know this sounds familiar, especially for us ADDers! But the good news is, there are essential oils from plants that can help! And the other good news is: I am eventually writing my post about this topic, that I have planned for such a long time. 😉

There are many essential oils out there and many can help with ADD symptoms. In this post I like to focus on 4 essential oils, that can give structure and help us to focus, concentrate and get things done

.… For all  You quick and short readers: I summarized the qualities of the essential oils in a short list at the end of the article. 😉 …

Essential oils can increase the level of Neurotransmitters in our body.
For example: Rosemary, Cypress and Frankincense can increase the Dopamin and Noradrenalin level– these neurotransmitters are said to be on a low level when having ADD /ADHD, cuz we consume them like a tasty chocolate cake- all of it -give it to me! 😉
Dopamin makes us happy, helps us to concentrate, gives us an emotionall drive and impuls, makes us feel good and gives a feeling of Joy and Confidence. Sounds good, huh? So … more of that please! With the help of Essential Oils, for example?

VETIVER ( Vetiveria or Chrysopogon zizanioides )- Hello Earth!

Vetiver Root Author: Sengai Podhuvan

The Essential Oil from  Vetiver is often discussed, when it comes to treatment of ADD with essential oils.
Vetiver is a grass that has a deep and branched root. From this root the essential oil is made through distillation. Vetiver is planted in several regions against soil erosion,  with its huge roots it helps to ” hold together” and stabilize the land.
This
stabilizing quality can also help us ” not to fall apart” emotionally.

Vetiver has an intense “grounding quality” , it helps us to come in contact with ourselves, feel our body and our needs. It is good for people who are all over the place or driven more by their heads than their hearts.
Vetiver is associated with the Earth element,  YIN energy and astrologically with the sign Taurus and the planet Venus.

VETIVER can help rational people and it also helps,  whenever you feel tense, nervous or exhausted. It can release tension and give you Energy, Strenght and Regeneration, like the strenght of the Earth that is holding and taking care of us. It  has a warm, deep and embracing quality. It can help us to be more tolerant and calm towards ourselves, our sorrows and emotional issues and also towards our environment.

The scent of Vetiver has an intense earthy  tone, its colour is dark and the oil is very thick and sticky. Some like the smell others hate it, somedays it is nice, others not.
You only need  a small amount of the oil, the scent is so strong, about 1 drop only in 50 ml carrier oil or alcohol will be enough. You can warm the bottle with the Vetiver oil to thin it, for easier access.

From the following oils I am gonna talk about in this article, that can give you structure, this is the only YIN oil and the only one that has also an aphrodisiac, erotic aspect .
The next oils I mention are more cooler oils, that give clear structure and helps us to concentrate on and accomplish our tasks.

An outburst of ADD symptoms … while trying to write an Article… Self-help required!

0

I am trying to write this article about Essential Oils for focusing, concentration and accomplishing tasks.
And guess what? Almost all my ADD symptoms decided to gather and make the realisation of my project impossible or at least very very difficult.

So here is what goes on:
I have many many ideas and information about the topic. While all these ideas and information are having a crazy dancing party in my head, I try to bring them into a structure, to write them down.

Unfocused (c) theFemmeADDon

Unfocused (c) theFemmeADDon

Then there are all these ideas HOW to write the information down: with a little story, with examples, just straight forward in a list, …? I am having a real hard time to decide and straight is anyway impossible for me. 😉

I need several approaches and started writing online to save them as drafts, gather more information and write it on paper, try to structure the information into topics and write more on paper; get frustracted and procrastinate and play online games and spider solitaire over and over.

I try again, with the actual help of Essential oils and use a blend of Rosemary and Lemon for concentrating, just to realize that I start getting very nervous…( and the dancing party in my brain, goes on dancing even harder).

I start to realize I am not grounded at all, I am high up in the air and I remember I haven’t  eaten yet. Well ok. Lets have something to eat, cuz eating also helps with structure an calming down. And I put away my essential oils blend and decide to use a mixture with Cypress ( for decision making and accomplishing tasks), Juniper against nervousness and a little bit of Ho-Leaves for inspiration and calming down.

And maybe I should stop drinking coffee for now, too?  🙂
Maybe I should go out for a walk and take a break to clear my head?

I really dont know what is going on… Months ago I decided on this article and the longer I think about it, the more difficult it gets. Probably the longer I wait, the more  perfect I wanna make it– something that is impossible to reach, so of course I cannot write it down.
On the other hand, it feels like when I was studying medicine and had to learn about all these illnesses. Getting deeper into a topic and being hypersensitive, too, I started developing or better imagine symptoms on myself.

So this time I develop all the symptoms of the issues I wanna write about?
Scattered, unfocused, undecissive, nervous, not able to realise my ideas and finish a task, totally unstructured,
…!?

Well, I am eating my bread now that nearly got burned cuz I forgot it in the oven  and I will try to   start all over again  and eventually write this article. 🙂

Bachflowers for raw emotions: Don’t piss in my garden and how to find a smartphone…

….about the feeling of competition and the guilt never to do enough for my business.

Yesterday I went with a good friend to our beloved coffee-place and when I was about to leave, I saw these flyers hanging at the wall: From a woman who does walks on the wild-side and teaches about wild growing medical plants, herbal walks, something that I offered in the past many times in this area.
Well, her walks and Herbal Medicine courses are in another area of town, but hey! I felt angry of her putting flyers in MY area! How stupid is this? I mean, MY reaction?!!! There are so many people who do  the same work as I do and I know that and knew that before, that I am not the only one! (this is soo BachFlower WATER VIOLET, for the feeling of being better than others)
Still, I felt like a cat who is furious that some other cat marked HER place. Not that this area belongs to me, its a public space, but still….. (Bachflower HOLLY for anger and jealousy, WILLOW for complaining about others and blaming others).

So, I tried to calm myself  (WHITE CHESTNUT to calm down the mind and let go) and think about what really makes me angry. And that is, that I always thought about starting and offering new Workshops and courses, making flyers to hang out in different places, well, many many plans and ideas,… BUT no actual results! No Flyers, no new dates for worshops, walks and courses, nothing really that I have finished. ( Bachflower WILD OAT for many ideas and not finishing projects) .
So there is NO need to be angry about anyone just about me! What a sh****! So feeling  guilty doesn’t help (maybe I should take some Bach Flower PINE against all that guilty feeling) and having ADHD doesn’t help either  for accomplishing and finishing things (and NO excuse ) and my anger and stupid competition feeling isn’t really the best motivation (HOLLY again).

Not that I haven’t already started yesterday, before I went out, to put up a seminar for Bach Flowers and was very happy about me working on my business stuff. Instead of enjoying my happiness and work I’ve done, I got so irritated by these flyers from somebody else! ( WALNUT for irritations when starting new things, CENTAURY for general irritation by others).

And than,  instead of working I procrastinate on the wwweb, while I am trying to find a smartphone that isn`t too expensive, so I can write directly from the coffee-place and everywhere else in my blog! 😉 But then, it s so hard to decide on the right one! I already know that I dont want “the fruit thing” brand, it’s too expensive and I do prefer papayas and mangos. 🙂 Continue reading
