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 oil and the itching stopped almost immediately!

She was enjoying it so much that I followed with Lavender and then Oregano oils, all of which are listed in the Essential Oils Desk Reference 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!

1.Associated topics: skin — "Local application of frankincense essential oil may provide a non-surgical treatment alternative, with no or minimal side effect for carcinoma in situ, minimally invasive carcinoma and pre-cancerous conditions such as actinic keratosis."Link
2.Associated topics: skin — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
3.Associated topics: itching-(Pruritus) — "[T]ea tree oil seems to be a more effective anti-eczematic agent than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate...."Link
4.Associated topics: skin — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
5.Associated topics: skin — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link
6.Associated topics: skin — "Tea tree oil... has become increasingly popular as an antimicrobial for the treatment of conditions such as tinea pedis [athlete’s foot] and acne....[T]ea tree oil can reduce histamine-induced skin inflammation."Link
7.Associated topics: skin — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
8.Associated topics: skin — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
