Thank you for posting this! My son who turned 6 last year suddenly developed tics. He blinked his eyes excessively. He said he is aware but he couldn’t help it. Poor boy has been told not to blink by teachers, friends and friend mommies, and felt very disturbed. Thanks to this blog I came across and I used the oil recommended here, lavender, vetiver, peace and calming, valor roller. And thank God I could see improvement within a few days, and I would say he almost got rid of it in 3 months time. However, when we thought the whole episode is almost over, the tic came back a little, and this time accompanied by throat clearing. I initially thought he has itchy throat, but after a while mother instinct told me something is not right. There the tic came back and accompanied by another one. I am very very worried. I have not changed his diet, as we do not usually eat much processed food. I think that the tics is the result of anxiety. May I know whether anyone of you has better result or oil combination? Thank you very much!
