What People are Saying About Focus Essential Oil Blend for ADHD

“I got this for my 4 year old son that could run circles around the energizer bunny. If his mind and body aren’t kept busy and challenged, he goes stir crazy. He was having a difficult time in aftercare because of just that problem. I was literally in tears because I didn’t know what else to do. So…I started to search for natural remedies to help him out and I came across this essential oil blend. I went on www.nih.gov as well as researched many scholarly articles regarding the clinical trials done on various essential oils and their efficacy. Every claim listed by Bio Source Naturals is actually true.

I tried it out on my son yesterday, which was a great way for me to see exactly how well it did or didn’t work because he stayed at home with me. I was amazed and shocked at how good this worked to help him focus and tapper down that abundant energy of his. This morning, as I sent him to school, I applied some more and hoped for the best. When I picked him up, two of the teachers commented at how good he was today. He truly had a remarkable day, which hasn’t happened since he started school.

I was skeptical buying this because I swore there was nothing in the world that could tame the fire within my little man. Needless to say, after verifying the claims listed on here with some research, I gave it a try. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Definitely plan on buying this again! Thank you Bio Source Naturals!” – L.

“This product (Focus) has helped my 5 year old and myself…thank you for selling such a great product. Unfortunately our last bottle broke so we did not get to use the full product…however a few weeks of this product has shown us how well it works. Thank you!” Michelle L.

“This stuff smells wonderful… and if it smells good it’s more likely to be worn for the purpose it serves. :)” S.R.

“So far so good. Been a week since we started on my son.” – TB

“Love this stuff! Will order more in the future, thank you.” – JP

“The oil is wonderful, it helps my autistic daughter focus in school.” – DH

“Very fast. I was very questionable about this product. I asked around about it and everyone that I asked gave me good feedback on it, and truth is it so far has worked great on our son. We put it on his feet before school and he’s done so much better already in school and the teachers have said something to us. So I have ordered 2 more bottles of it just to make sure we have it on hand. Thank you.” – Vicki

“We use this every morning. I was so happy to get a call from the teacher saying he was not falling out of his seat.. He has been getting M’s these last few weeks. It works wonders.” L. Hammond

“My son says it helps him at school and that’s what we hoped for! Has a nice smell. Will order again. Am sharing this bottle with other friends to see if it helps their kids!” – S. Johnson

“Arrived sooner than I thought it would. Works well. Helps my hyper kids to calm down.” – J. Wright

“The first day my son used this at school his teacher came to speak to me at dismissal – to tell me what an amazing day my son had, how focused and attentive he was. Such a relief! My son is an ASD kid who does well academically but struggles with focus, staying on track and planning/organizing his day. Definitely purchasing again – thank you for the stress relief for both of us!” T. Stranza
