Essential Oils for ADD: CLARITY for confusion, CALMNESS for anxiety

I started to create a Blend called Clarity!
I needed clarity, beeing stuck and confused with many ideas and not beeing happy about any of them, cuz none was perfect.

So here is my idea and essential oils that give You Clarity, Strenght and calm you down when anxious:

It starts with Orange blossom water, cuz I wanted that specific scent and quality.  And the essential oil from Orange blossom ( Neroli) is very expensive.
This is a specific scent, it is an important ingredient for a good Eau de Cologne, some of you might recognize it as Florida Water or Cologne Water. In mediterranean countries this Cologne is often used as a everyday cologne, and after hearing from the use of Florida Water, it sounded familiar to me.
Neroli ( Citrus aurantium- Bitter orange blossom) is one of the most expensive and precious essential oils. 1000 kg of blossoms are needed for 1 kg essential oil!

NEROLI – Sunshine for Mind & Soul

Helps whenever we have the need to clear our mind and thoughts. Has a strong effect on emotions: wipes away sorrows and gives light, brightness and lust for life when anxious, depressed and full of fears. Gives strength, emotional stability and is said to clear and protect the Aura from negative energies.

Interesting enough, in the greek orthodox church ( and in the Catholic church in Portugal, too, as I’ve been told), they have something called blessed water and it smells like Cologne Water and Neroli ( loved that as a kid; my grandpa told me it is cologne;-) ).
This Water beeing blessed by some cleric, is said to heal and keep away bad spirits.
Having now the knowledge  of Neroli and its protecting and healing qualities, that idea  aint t  so wrong. Blessed or not. By church or just by nature. 😉

LAVENDER – Clean and clear

Another essential oil with a strong emotional effect. Lavender (Lavandula angustinufolia) is a strong antiseptic essence. Not only does it keep us safe from germs and bacterias and helps wounds to heal, it also heals emotional wounds and calms down when stressed out, in fear or in emotional pain. It is a wonderful help when having sleep difficulties.

Also it is a great cleaning essence. It actually  cleans well all household counters and floors. And it cleans and clears the confused mind, the negative thoughts, the sorrows, negative energies, …

It is the essence that is safe to use directly on the skin. It is one of the most effective essences for burns.

BERGAMOT ORANGE- Classic scent supports Enlightenment

Another classic essence for Eau de Toilette and another essence that is bright and  light,  like a torch for the confused and scattered mind, leading us the way out of our selfmade twisted thoughts labyrinth.
Nice said, huh? Remember I am greek and love metaphors and paraphrases! LOL 🙂
Bergamot ( Citrus bergamia ) is famous for giving the specific aroma to Earl Grey Tea.

Bergamot is a transforming essence ( especially when mixed with other essences according to the desired quality):  When depressed, fearful, anxious, overwhelmed – it calms the mind and emotions, relaxing and soothing quality.
When tired, having a lack of energy, beeing physically/ emotionally down- it uplifts, gives energy, clarity, lust for life, ideas, inspiration.
Bergamot orange can increase self-empowerment!

I added other essences to this mixture:

CEDARWOOD –  Clarity without fear, Earth element for a better footing and stand

CYPRESS – strong uplifting, clarity, cleans from undesired emotions

FRANKINCENSE– for spiritual inspiration and support finding the right answers

FENNEL – Clarity concerning emotions

And some other secret essences …… 😉
This are just some ideas for essential oils for Clarity. And btw: I actually managed to make the Earth blend a day later. Now that my mind was clear after using my Clarity blend. 😉

I will tell you about my earth mixture sometime … I will only say so much:  it is magic! 🙂

  1. This is so cool! I have ADHD and I have been in a funk. Trying to brain balance. I got this hunch that aromatherapy could help when I was lying down to listen to a relaxation tape-I had a little big of incese dust on my finger and went to scratch my nose. The aroma helped to keep me in the moment and listen and relax. it gave me this huge epiphany and then I found your site! Great ideas! I’m going to give your stuff a try!

    • Hey Tyrone,
      I am happy You found my site. Thanks for Your comment and sharing Your experience.:-) That is a great idea to try to balance with music. There is also a mindfulness exercise with music, where one should try to focus on a song and listen to every note. I liked the exercise as I love music. I have some songs that can really bring me down.
      Dead can Dance is a band I love to listen to, that can relax me and help me to get in contact with myself and the universe! 😉
      I also found a mantra that I love that can bring me down a lot. I will soon post it here.
      I would love to hear what essential oils You try and about Your experiences.

      Good luck and all the best,
      thefemmeaddon
