In a study conducted in 2001 by Dr. Terry Friedman, several essential oils were used to determine their effectiveness for common behavioral challenge in children. Vetiver was found to be the most effective in observations and brain wave scans – showing improvements in 100% of subjects! Cedarwood essential oil was 83% effective, and lavender 53%.

Read about the many benefits of Vetiver oil... including: heals scars and marks on the skin, serves as an aphrodisiac, soothes anxiety and nervousness (this is a very calming oil!). I just started using it for sleep issues- I apply to the bottom of my feet at bedtime, along with some lavender... And I'm sleeping great again!
