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.

Of particular note is the very promising result I have seen in my clients with depression and/or chronic fatigue, as the two often go hand in hand. I view both as "emotional suppression programs" where the common thread seems to be not speaking one's needs. Suppression of this nature often begins with childhood and weaves throughout the fabric of one's life, eventually manifesting physically as depression, chronic fatigue, diverticulitis (fill in the blank)... I have found essential oils may be effective in addressing stored emotion.

Several clients on depression meds relate that while the meds may allow them to "function," they often feel unable to release emotions and therefore feel more like "water backing up behind the dam." Most usually, it takes an outburst such as anger to skim the top off that backlog, but it is like temporary Band-Aid surgery. They remain for the most part overwhelmed and inert - basically unable to affect movement in their lives. After the Raindrop session, the most common response I receive is, "Wow, I feel so LIGHT." Where did it go? The look of hope is quite profound.
One client came with a long history of suppression, where as the middle child, she learned that good girls didn't ask for more than was offered and thus the pattern was set. The feeling that it was not okay to say, "I need help, I need love or no, I can't help you with that task"... on into adulthood where drugs and alcohol became coping tools. Various health issues followed, leading to years of chronic fatigue and depression, finally unable to work much less stray far from bed. It was a pleasure to watch this woman blossom like a flower as each session began to free her of the years and layers of emotional sludge, fatigue and hopelessness. At the same time, she began to speak her needs most eloquently, gently evolving relations with family and friends and especially with herself. It should go without saying, however, that every individual will have their own experience.
In essence, the human body is a spectacular storage vessel for trauma, emotions, stress... you name it, and it is stored on a cellular level in the tissue, organs, deep gut and spine, etc. As the oils move into the body, they may gently release all manner of stored "stuff," perhaps what the person is ready to release.

Clients who receive the Raindrop have reported tangible latitude and mobility in which to make healthy changes and move forward. Most evident are the sense of peace, renewed strength and clarity and that feeling of lightness. Each session addresses another layer, and this is the perfect precursor to the "Egyptian Emotional Clearing," which is the companion essential oil session that more directly addresses stored emotion, trauma, loss and abuse.
