Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) represent a variety of diseases with complex multi-level psychological dysfunctions, and physiological and molecular pathogenesis. Autism is recently being recognized as an important health issue in many countries all over the world. The common cause of ASD has not yet been discovered; however, there are multiple studies that target environmental, gastrointestinal, genetic, microbiological, nutritional, toxicological and other factors which could possibly trigger development of ASD at an early age. There are essential oils which can be used to soothe different symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia. More research and clinical studies need to be done to determine the exact cellular and molecular mechanism of essential oil action on the circulatory, digestive, lymphatic, and nervous systems and their proper use in the treatment of the symptoms associated with autism
