This is my story...Mom and son team who have been working with ADD, ADHD, depression & Tourette’s since Adrian was diagnosed at 4 years.

Just like any concern: nervousness, weight, learning disabilities - you learn how to improve and work with it.

I believe my son was never broken, or needed fixing, I believe we both needed to embrace a new way that worked with his brain. This is my class, how I use science, research, essential oils, scents, to help myself and my son.
