Happy With Vetiver

My Veriditas Testimonial:

I’ve been using Veriditas essential oils for about a year now, recommended by my aunt. We love every oil tried so far. My 3 kids even have fun helping decide which oil to diffuse daily. On a whim, I recently bought vetiver and started diffusing daily with other essential oils, usually a citrus or lavender. I have a very “active” mind and noticed that it made me feel calm and clear. Not wanting to read too much into it, I began researching the uses for vetiver. ADHD kept coming up. My 10 year old son Conor has been struggling in school with, among other things, ADHD and sensory processing, since first grade.

About 2 weeks after I first started diffusing the vetiver, I experimented with using topically on him before school. Soon, positive notes and awards began coming home from school. That week I had a conference scheduled with his general and special education teachers. Usually these conferences are somewhat stressful. This one was not! For the first time, I sat in awe as his teachers spent 30 minutes telling me all of the positive changes they’ve seen, especially in the previous 2 WEEKS. He was more focused, patient, calm, kind. They thought he started a new supplement. I mentioned that I had been diffusing vetiver and other oils and on occasion using topically. Neither of them have heard about essential oils before. They both exclaimed, “Keep doing it!” Now this still could have been a coincidence, maybe. So I began putting vetiver on Conor topically every morning before school, mixing with jojoba or lotion just to be sure his sensitive skin was safe.

A couple more weeks went by, he was doing so well. Then there were a few days I didn’t diffuse or put oils on him. His special ed teacher called me at lunchtime to let me know that Conor was very distracted and anxious. She noticed he didn’t have his oils on! She wanted me to know that I had just made them all believers in essential oils, especially vetiver. “We wouldn’t have believed it if we didn’t see it,” she said. She asked for more information, so that she can inform family and friends who have children with challenges like Conor. I gladly sent her to your website. Now, putting oils on is part of our morning routine!
