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.

This was discovered totally by accident.

One day I decided to diffuse Sandalwood oil -- alone. Just wanted to see how it might make me feel.

While diffusing, a thunderstorm brewed and went into full swing. Our older dog who gets extremely freaked out during thunderstorms, and even rainstorms, came into my room with the diffuser and just laid down in front of it. It was the first time she was ever seen to just relax and nap during a storm.

Over time we have tried other things, but thus far nothing comes close to Sandalwood oil. The room with the diffuser is a room she rarely enters, but when she does, and it is thundering or raining, I know what she wants and get out the Sandalwood to diffuse. Now my roommate (who is the dog owner) can finally get sleep on stormy nights. Before her dog would keep her awake all night, just freaking out.

The best solution thus far, over an approximate 4-month period, is to add 7-8 drops of Sandalwood oil in a diffuser along with the 5-6 ounces of pure water.

It works every time!

2.Associated topics: relaxation-/-rest — "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

The present results demonstrated that inhalation of YYA significantly decreased the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Inhalation of YYA also significantly decreased the HRs in 10 leads.... In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
