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 want to start my testimonial telling a little bit about myself and how I got introduced to the oils.

I grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My family raised me under the Spiritism doctrine and I always found my answers in it, so the doctrine always comforted me and helped me to understand most situations we go through in life.

When I was 14 years old I had to go through one of the most painful moments in my life. I can remember as clear as today. I was in my history classroom in school and the director stopped the class and asked my best friend to step out. So after a few minutes he came back and asked me to get my backpack and follow him. In that moment I felt the worst feeling I had ever experienced, I was shaking my hands sweating and I was surrounded by a cold sensation. When I saw my best friend crying desperately I had the confirmation that something terrible had happened.

My older brother was waiting for us in the director's room and when I saw him I realized that the bad thing was related to my family. I looked into my brothers eyes and I was in shock I just didn't want to ask anything because I was so afraid of the answers. And my brother drove the three of us to my family's house.

When I walked into my living room I saw my grandmother and my mother crying and in such pain that they were being comforted by my neighbors. I didn't see my father in the room and at the moment I knew that he was not between us anymore.

My vision went totally blurry and I couldn't control my emotions, I stayed still and went straight to my bedroom without anybody saying a word to me and I felt a chest pain like somebody had punched me so strong and I couldn't stop crying.

My brother got into my room and said that he needed to talk about Dad. I already knew it I could feel it through their pain. My Dad's death was not by a natural cause, he was a suicide soul and he jumped from a 232 foot high bridge in Rio de Janeiro.

After that day my life was never the same, I was never able to release my body and soul from that moment. After years passed, no matter what I was doing in life, if I had a click to remember me of that moment my body was filled of those terrible emotions. I tried many therapies, depression and mood disorder medications and even the spiritual house I use to attend couldn't fix me.

So I grew up afraid of meeting new people because every time I use to have the same experience of conversation that would lead to a question that I never was prepared to answer which was how my father died.

Even though I thought I was alone during my journey in life, I was blessed many times by great people that held my hands and guided me to a lighter and brighter path. The floral remedies prescribed by a very thoughtful and loved friend helped me achieve my goals in life like to graduate in one of the best Architecture and Urban Design Universities and to be open to find the love of my life who I am married to today.

Moving to America years ago to live with my spouse I left my family and few friends behind and I abandoned my treatment with the floral remedies. This took me to a terrible state of mind and soul. I found myself trapped again in my worst emotions.

So while talking to a great friend, she mentioned that she has been studying essential oils for a long time and I asked her to help me. She then suggested that I do a treatment with the Feelings Kit made by Young Living.

When I received the beautiful box in my house the first thing I did was to open the 6 blends and smell each one. After that I read the instruction and I applied each oil according to it. Then I laid down in my bed. After a couple minutes I was taking control of my breathing and I was taken by all these emotions that made me cry a lot and right after that my body relaxed to a point that I slept. I had a very realistic dream where I was running in the dark and I could feel my legs while sleeping.

After I woke up hours later my shoulders were so relaxed and I didn't feel so heavy as I use to. All I needed was one treatment to release me from my painful from the past. Now I can talk about everything that used to make me suffer but without feeling the pain. I can describe myself after this experience with the essential oils as living in the present.

I feel I finally found my path so I am moved by a great energy to learn more and more about the essential oils and healing therapies so I can help others in need.

I really appreciate that you took the time to read my long testimonial and my intention was though my experience to comfort you. No matter the difficulties you are going through now, I want you to know that you are not alone and there is ALWAYS a cure for the ones who want to be cured.

You are worth! Have a wonderful day!

4.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings,anxiety-/-worry,depression-/-sadness-/-hopelessness-/-sorrow — "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

At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group.
