Finding Focus with InTune Blend

cameraToday’s fast paced world is full of distractions that make it difficult to focus, especially when you need to.

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused, paying attention, and controlling behavior. According to the Center from Disease Control, approximately 9.5% or 5.4 million children 4-17 years of age have been diagnosed with ADHD as of 2007. Additional research shows that these symptoms continue into adulthood for about 60% of children with ADHD. That’s roughly 4% of the U.S. adult population, or about 8 million adults.

InTune is a proprietary blend of essential oils, carefully selected for their ability to enhance focus and support healthy thought processes.

This blend will help increase focus, alertness, and clarity for thought for those who have difficulty paying attention and staying on task.

What’s in the blend?

For Clarity and Focus:intune

Frankincense: promotes clarity

Lime: includes aldehydes, which are calming to the emotions, and pinenes, which are helpful for uplifting the mood and soothing the central nervous system

Hawaiian Sandalwood: known to invigorate the mind, improve focus, and increase concentration

For Calming and Balancing:

Amyris: referred to as western sandalwood; has calming properties

Patchouli: includes many sesquiterpenes and has traditionally been used to benefit the nervous system by reducing symptoms of stress and anxiety

Roman Chamomile: high in esters, which are very calming and soothing

Ylang Ylang: calming

Did you know:

Boys (13.2%) were more likely than girls (5.6%) to have ever been diagnosed with ADHD.

Rates of ADHD diagnosis increased at a greater rate among older teens as compared to younger children.

Across 10 countries, it was projected that ADHD was associated with 143.8 million lost days of productivity each year. Most of the loss can be attributed to ADHD and not co-occurring conditions.

Workers with ADHD were more likely to have at least one sick day in the past month compared to workers without ADHD.

  1. This blend “InTune” is awesome for helping anyone focus when the need for concentration is eminatant. I used it when I went to an event where I was already a bit tired and I didn’t miss a word.

  2. Karen – I am not a dr., so take this with a grain of salt, but it’s my understanding that these should be okay to use with meds. I take Vyvanse and am planning on getting this. I’d love to be able to use this instead, but we shall see! : )

  3. I have a daughter who has struggled all her life with these issues and was finally found to be autistic, though high-functioning. She has been on several medications, but has finally settled on Vyvanse and Wellbutrin, which has been working wonders for her. We didn’t think it was possible to get more focus or quality of life for her than we were getting with the Vyvanse and Wellbutrin, but were amazed at how the In-Tune worked for her. I have worked in the medical field and am also certified as a family herbalist and massage therapist, so I have learned to work within the parameters of what things can and do work together well. I would strongly recommend In-Tune for anyone to use, particularly anyone who is on medications for ADD/ADHD, Autism, depression, etc.

    The best way to use In-Tune, in my opinion, is to please 2-3 drops on the bottoms of each foot, rub a drop of two behind each ear, rub 2-3 drops up the c-spine (the neck) to the bottom of the skull. We also diffuse In-Tune into the air around our daughter’s desk when she is trying to work on homework.

  4. Lynette Taylor, I would love to know more about how you became a certified family herbalist. P.S. I love intune and use it daily.

  5. I have a son who has recently voluntarily quit taking is medicine for ADHD because it makes him sweat terrible and he gets embarrassed. I want to purchase the intune to see if it works for him but I’m confused as to how often he should apply it. I was also curious to know if we could put a few drops in a veggie capsule and he could take it orally. Any help/advice would be totally appreciated. Thanks!

  6. Jenny. Veviter is a nature sedative. I imagine that was not used in this blend because the goal of the mixture is to ground them emotionally and to help them focus. Sedating someone with ADHD does not help them learn to developing coping mechanisms for their life – it just makes them sleepy. No child in school sleeping is gonna learn effectively.

  7. My 7 year-old son is off Vyvanse thanks to see a chiropractor regularly. I figured out the cost of the meds vs. chiropractor and we are saving money plus not have the side effects. By getting his spine in proper alignment, his brain can get the signals he needs to think and focus. I can’t wait to try intune, we just started with vetiver

  8. I’m curious about these oils and how they work. My son currently takes Vyvanse and we are considering trying the oils instead. I was wondering if anyone knew how many (approximate) doses you get out of a 10ml bottle? I was also curious about other affects this may have on him. We’re not thrilled with the side affects of the Vyvanse so are looking for other alternatives that are less harsh to his system.

  9. I’ve just been an IPC for a few months so I’m still discovering all the great uses of doTERRA Essential Oils. My husband has ADHD and is not in favor of medication, but is willing to try InTune & Balance for his symptoms. We are still waiting for our order. I’d like to hear how using doTERRA has helped adults with ADHD. Thanks!
