Buyer beware.


My father was faced with making a life changing decision. If you ever had to help a loved one come to grips with leaving the home they had for 40+ years, then you know how traumatic and draining this process can be on all parties actively involved. We were faced with such a decision recently.

When having to address changing or bringing in your daughter to assist with day to day problem solving and financial decisions that you have made yourself for over 50 years, the ability to hand that over, even when it is the best decision, is very difficult. Especially so for men who are used to being the one taking on the responsibility of having to be the one making decisions and holding things together.

The situation was trying for both of us. So much so that I had to depend even more on the Lord to direct my steps and He never let me down. When dealing with my own personal anxiety, frustration, stress, fatigue, and headaches, I performed an AromaDome treatment at home using Lavender and Di-Gize. When I woke up the next morning, the headache was gone and my body felt like it just had a reboot.

To deal with helping my father to think clearly and work with me, the Lord had me to diffuse Cedarwood oil. Just as that pleasant smell filled the temple of Solomon in scripture, so also did it fill the hospital room that my father resided in. It not only uplifted his Spirit to smell it because he stated as much as well as stating how the nurses commented on the smell, but whereas I had a hard time getting him to work with me the day before, he was compliant and we were able to successfully get to the next stage in the process of transitioning him to downsizing.

All I can tell you is obedience to that still small voice, The Holy Spirit, which speaks to every one of us open to hearing, can truly yield unbelievable rewards. May YHVH bless you and keep you, make His face to shine upon you and grant you His Shalom.

4.Associated topics: anxiety-/-worry — "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,anxiety-/-worry — "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,anxiety-/-worry — "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,anxiety-/-worry — "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: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry,headache — "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....
