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 had been battling with some severe bitterness and anger issues related to my family. I was blessed to have an emotional release with a precious friend using therapeutic-grade essential oils.

I applied several drops of the Release and Forgiveness essential oil blends on my shoulders, ears, throat and spine. I began to pray and ask God to help me let go of the years of anger and bitterness that I had been storing throughout my life.

As the tears welled up and poured out, I heard the Lord saying that it was okay. His sacrifice on the cross was enough. I could not only forgive those who had hurt me, but I could release them and my unrealistic expectations for them for good.

As I felt the burden being lifted, my friend noticed some heat coming from the liver reflex points on the bottom of my foot as well as from the actual area where my liver is located. She gave me the Purification essential oil blend to rub over these areas. Then she applied some White Angelica essential oil under my nose and over my forehead and heart.

The release happened, and the burden was lifted! Now I have that amazing muscle memory whenever I use White Angelica essential oil blend, so it helps me whenever the struggle presents itself yet again (because we all know that just because we forgive does not mean the offender stops offending).

One more amazing element is that the pain I had been feeling in my lower back, which I thought was due to a cheering injury, completely disappeared after releasing those emotions!

Evidently this back issue of 27 years was just stored emotions in the cells of my body. When those emotions were dealt with properly, faced head on and released, the subsequent pain was gone as well!

It was not at all a physical issue but completely tied to the pent-up emotions that were harming me at a physical, cellular level. I am amazed at how closely linked emotions can be to the physical body and how incredible I now feel.

Now whenever I am around difficult people or in situations where I might tend to get easily angered, a swipe of White Angelica essential oil blend under my nose and over my forehead takes me back to how great it felt to release that anger and bitterness. This keeps me from allowing myself to go there once again.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "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.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "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
5.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
6.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anger-/-frustration — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
7.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
8.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings,stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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
