Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I was visiting my mom who was in the hospital and she had just had an angiogram. The medication they had given her gave her an unusual reaction - itchy feet! They were driving her crazy with itching and she was constantly having the nurses scratch them for her.

After scratching them for awhile for her as well, I asked her if she would like for me to try some oils on her feet and she said "sure". I started with Peppermint and the itching stopped almost immediately! She was enjoying it so much that I followed with Lavender and then Oregano, all of which are listed in the essential oils reference book under Skin Disorders, and Itching.

Why stop there? She also had been having a dry mouth (also a side effect from drugs) that drinking would not alleviate. I put some Peppermint on her tongue and she said it was more than 50% better and enjoyed the relief!

One of the nurses said it was time for a pain pill for her hip, so, feeling confident I said, "Mom, I have some of the PanAway oil blend with me, would you like to try it for your hip?" She said yes again, and told the nurse she would like to wait before taking the pain pill. She never did need to take that pain pill!
After a few minutes several nurses came in saying, "What is that wonderful smell?" "Ooh that smells nice" and comments like that. They were crowding around all wanting to try the oils and asking questions so I shared some testimonials of how the oils have helped our family through the years, while they all smelled and rubbed on different oils.

Being a newbie, (to the business side) I did not have information with me (I have since learned!) But I did give them my website address and member number, which they eagerly wrote down. I walked away that day feeling like the fish were just jumping in the boat! All I did was basically open the bottle and people were interested! The oils sell themselves!
The next day I visited my mom and this time, in addition to the oils, took some sharing packages with me and left it with them. These oils are wonderful, and after having used them on my family for several years with great results I am looking forward to starting to build a business with products I truly believe in. Not only that, but it is fun and truly rewarding already!
