At Cheryl’s Herbs, our liquid extract combination products each contain multiple herbs and are sold in one-ounce, two-ounce, and four-ounce dropper bottles.  These products are for internal use.

Focus Liquid Extract Combination is a product that assists in improving attention, concentration, comprehension, and retention.

It consists of 5 herbs:

Oat Grass Seed - represents the milky stage of the seed of the oat plant.  This seed is used to restore the nervous system, especially when it is over-stressed by, for example, illness or drug use.  It is nourishing to the nerves as it grounds and steadies nerve function.  In that way, we can more solidly approach that upon which we need to train our attention.

Melissa Herb - known as a cordial herb, Melissa has special benefits for the heart, helping to ease elevated blood pressure, palpitations, and fibrillation.  It supports us through even depression and mania.

Hawthorn Leaf, Flower, & Berry - is a specific remedy for ADD and restlessness in both children and adults by calming the heart and nerves.

Ginkgo Leaf - helps promote circulation to the brain.  Certain conditions such as dementia, tinnitus, and under-functioning memory stand to receive benefit from this herb.

Scullcap Herb - is an herb that reaches down all the way to the nerve cells to restore nerve function when the nervous system has been under chronic, prolonged stress.  Blood pressure, palpitations, and anxiety can be addressed by this herb, as well.

Overall, this product, as with any other of our liquid extract combinations, is a synergy offering more to us than any one of the individual herbs in it can offer, and thereby helping to calm the heart, the nervous system, and the mind, allowing us to sit still, train our focus, comprehend, and retain. 

It seems the heart and the mind are linked in such a way that certain communication between them influences not only proper function of the heart but peace of mind.

This combination of herbs is supportive of maintaining excellence in learning and work environments. It helps to promote clear thinking and well-being and is an excellent whole body tonic for modern and demanding lifestyles.

Use 5-10 drops, 1-2 dropperfuls, or as much as a teaspoon at a time. Dose frequency could be 1-3 times or several times a day as desired. Generally best to start with less before increasing dose. Better results are more likely if taken on a daily basis but additional doses could be added based on the demands of the day. Dose recommendations are for adults. For a child, adjust the dose according to weight. For example, if a child weighs approximately half what an adult weighs, give half of any of the above dose suggestions.
