Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have suffered with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for over 10 years. I have the typical issues: startle easily, nightmares, flashbacks, sleep issues, emotional numbing, avoidance of certain situations, etc. It has affected nearly every part of my life.

My psychiatrist actually recommended Young Living essential oils after atttending a workshop on trauma. She gave me a handout from the workshop. The first essential oil listed was SARA, so that is what I started with. I was skeptical but willing to try almost anything to get some relief instead of adding yet another medication.

When I received my order of SARA, the first night I applied the essential oil blend behind my ears, on my wrists, on my temples, and on the back of my neck.

It is almost difficult to describe, but the dreams I had that night -- instead of being terrifying nightmares -- were from a different perspective... almost from the outside looking in. I woke up the next morning not only having slept amazingly well but with a sense of comfort and safety that I have rarely felt in the past 10 years!

After a week of nightly success applying SARA, I had a particularly bad day full of memories and flashbacks. I applied SARA the same as I have done each night, and the calm that washed over me while journaling my thoughts let me continue my day with my family. At that point I was convinced that these essential oils do have the ability to work at both a physical and an emotional level.

I subsequently ordered Trauma Life, and I have had great success applying that on my big toes before I start my day. I am functioning much better at work, I do not startle as easily, and my flashbacks have eased.

These two essential oil blends have changed my life, and I cannot wait to see the continued improvements as I move forward in therapy and see my doctor in conjunction with using essential oils!
