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.

My 84 year old stubborn grandmother fell and refused to go to the hospital. She had recently checked herself out of the nursing home rehab because they wanted to keep her for another month.

Convinced I was going to fix her with my oils she wouldn't even consider any other treatment. I felt extremely intimidated especially after I saw how bad her body looked and dropped to my knees for help. I didn't want to touch her.

I had studied for a month about her ailments and how I might help her but when I saw her my mind went blank. She had a purple bruise from under her ribcage down her leg. Her body was covered in bruises and some had split open (she is on a blood thinner) Her legs were filled with fluid and her feet had the start of a painful pressure sore. She has that nasty bone disease in her back and that was swollen.

Every breath was laboured. (She is on oxygen) I started with Cypress on her legs and feet. I remember about the Valor oil blend so I put some on both feet for electrical balance. The pulses went right up my arms!!! I was practically in tears.

I put Frankincense and the Thieves oil blend on her feet. Lavender oil went on her bruised arms. For all the other spots on her, I made a well with my hand, poured in some V-oil and a drop of essential oil and just set the oil on her body.

I used Tea Tree, the PanAway, Relieve It blends and Valor. She was moving with great difficulty still, but while I was getting some oils ready to leave with her she started waving her arm. She hadn't been able to lift her arm for a long time.

To stand she had been scooting forward until she got to the end of her chair and with difficulty would get up. After her oiling she was standing with no scooting!! She was breathing better. An entire houseful of people witnessed this transformation.

My nephew (one of her caregivers) called me later to tell me he originally thought my oils were crap and he had been worried that I was going to hurt her. He has changed his mind. In all the time he has been with her she couldn't move so well.

She played him a couple of games of cribbage and skunked him!!! I am hopeful for any input on her. I am still so new to the oils that I feel like taking her on was more than I could handle.

God has blessed my family.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
3.Associated topics: spine,mobility — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
4.Associated topics: edema-/-water-retention-/-dropsy — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
5.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
6.Associated topics: osteoarthritis — "We have demonstrated that Boswellia frereana [frankincense] prevents collagen degradation, and inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory mediators and MMPs. Due to its efficacy we propose that B. frereana should be examined further as a potential therapeutic agent for treating inflammatory symptoms associated with arthritis."Link
7.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "Essential Oil Diffusion [lavender, marjoram, balsam fir, and peppermint] for the Treatment of Persistent Oxygen Dependence in a Three-Year-Old Child With Restrictive Lung Disease With Respiratory Syncytial Virus [RSV] Pneumonia: A 3-year-old female with central core disorder, a static myopathy affecting type one muscle fibers, with an 18-day history of oxygen requirement, acute desaturation episodes on high-flow oxygen, and persistent upper-lobe atelectasis... experienced a rapid reduction in oxygen requirement when treated with diffused plant essential oils after insufficient response to N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and dornase alfa."Link
