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 grew up being thrown from home to home by my relatives. My mother was schizophrenic, and my father was a hot-tempered Puerto Rican man, son of a slave who had his own demons to battle. When my sister and I had lived with them in the past, we had suffered every type of abuse.

I was always skilled at dreaming big, as I always somehow managed to get invited into a new home every three years or so. I learned to mask the pain with perfect grades, training for competition in gymnastics, and keeping busy with an after-school job.

But when I became a mother at the tender age of 17, I began wanting to give my babies a better life, free of the hardships that I had endured. To make a long story short, I found essential oils when I was 34 years old, and the first oils that I tried were the Present Time and Joy blends.

Joy gave me power to look forward to creating the life that I had dreamed of while being a single mother of four children and having just gone through my second divorce.

Present Time helped me to find the courage to live in the moment and face my trials with each day being an adventure, something to enjoy. This blend also helped me to love life in the moment and to help my children to know that I found them amazing, lovable, and capable.

I would not only inhale the essential oils, but I also would apply them to my temples and neck where I could smell them. I also found release and direction in my journaling.
I have come to see essential oils as a tool, and, when I have used them with other tools, they have made my progress faster and my burdens lighter.

I tried using another company's essential oils for a while, but none of them worked for me like these therapeutic-grade oils do. I am so grateful to be a part of this company that gives us such a wonderful assortment of tools to help us upgrade our lives!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2."Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
3."Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
4."[P]re-clinical and clinical research available today demonstrat[es] the power, safety, and effectiveness of natural compounds [particularly aromatherapy] for relieving stress and anxiety.... [S]imple inhalation of patchouli and rose oil reduced sympathetic nervous activity by 40%, with rose oil reducing adrenaline concentrations by 30%.... Lavender oil... has also been studied for the ability to reduce stress, anxiety, aggression,and cortisol levels, among two dozen other potential therapeutic properties."Link
