Imagine you or your child getting through a whole day without feeling scattered, overwhelmed or disinterested in the tasks at hand...
Imagine staying focused long enough to complete an exam and then finding out that you have not just passed but scored a high grade...
That is what FOCUS has done for others with conditions such as ADD and ADHD, anxiety, insomnia, restlessness and stress. FOCUS works best when applied to the body, particularly in the pulse points, on the soles of the feet and along the spine. It is also very helpful to inhale the scent repeatedly throughout the day for maximum effect.
FOCUS is made with a winning combination of pure essential oils including spearmint, rosemary, basil and vetiver to calm the body and speed blood flow to the brain.* As such, it is best used during the day for concentration. Focus balances the metal element. Read more about the Metal Element in Chinese Medicine.

Testimonial from a pleased parent:
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your recommendations with my son, Jesse. Jesse is a very active 12 year old boy, who was diagnosed in 3rd grade with ADHD. He was placed on Concerta at that time to help him to concentrate and focus in school and extra-curricular activities. Over the next 2 ½ years, Jesse’s grades improved greatly on the medicine that he was on. However, he lost weight, was lethargic and had a hard time falling asleep at bedtime. His growth was also slowed due to the side effects of the medicine. We tried a different medicine, Straterra, and while some of the side effects were reduced, he was still very tired and struggled to keep on weight. Last May, Jesse and I together decided to stop the medicine to see if he could somehow regulate his ADHD symptoms on our own.
During a visit to Body Logic for a massage the day after we went off the medication, you and I discussed Jesse’s struggles with his ADHD and our decision. You suggested we try two aromatherapy blends you had created. The blends were called Focus and Calm. Jesse and I were both very excited to try to herbal methods, as we were both determined not to go back on the medicine, but were also apprehensive that school and activities would be adversely affected during the transition. You instructed Jesse to dab the oils on his wrists and the bottoms of his feet 3-4 times each day. You also gave him a shower gel of the Focus blend to use daily.
Jesse and I quickly noticed the benefits from the blends you had given us. He was calmer, more social, and much less lethargic. Even his sister noticed the difference in him. And being off the medicine immediately increased his appetite.
I am so happy to report that today Jesse is a healthy, very active boy. His weight is stable, his growth is back on track and he looks so much healthier. I firmly believe that without your suggestions and guidance, Jesse would not have made such a smooth transition to being non-medicated.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and your blends with us. I am so thankful to have my son back.
