Vetiver is one of the best known essential oils for ADHD and anger. It’s a very relaxing, grounding oil and can help you feel more focused and less anxious.
Cedarwood is commonly used to improve focus and concentration, deal with scattered thoughts and reduce anxiety.
Lavender is another well known essential oil for ADHD and anxiety. It can help deal with the restlessness, jitteriness, agitation and high anxiety levels that are commonly found with ADHD, all of which can interfere with focus and attention.
