Essential oils

  1. Because it has been almost a year. I have a student who keeps a bottle in my office, with doctor's orders, for ADHD. I came in last Friday to find it broken on my desk, smelling to high heaven. Cleaned my desk multiple times and the smell still lingers. I am gagging here. Funny side note, the doctor's order stated "the parents seem to think this helps, so pt may apply as needed". That is one nice doctor.

    So it's not a prescribed medication?

    Do you feel more focused?

    I love the doctor's note. Perfect.

    We're not supposed to allow anything that' is not FDA cleared here. That being said, I just decided to end the argument I was having with a parent over her child getting a lactose intolerance supplement. I figured if she could get the doc to write for it, then i'd just give it. his was after she started sneaking the tablets into her child's lunchbox. Silly mother, doesn't she know that the kids always get found out because they make a big show of taking something.

    I'm just curious, when the doc says "apply as needed", where was the kid applying it?

    I do not feel more focused, it's smells like patchouli oil, which I hate! My office smells like a head shop. He applies it to his neck, really needs prescribed meds, but no, let's frustrate the kid and make him stink.

    Ugh, my husband likes the smell of patchouli oil. I blame this on living in Oregon while in college.

    My sister-in-law, does not look/act like a hippie (and there is nothing wrong with hippies and or patchouli) loves patchouli. I gave her a patchouli scented deodorant, don't know if she wears it or if she has better focus.
