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 daughter arrived home from University with a boyfriend in tow - a very linear, logical linguistics student with five languages under his belt and one who definately not into anything he thought as woo-woo -- including aromatherapy.

Over the years Meghan had enjoyed many RainDrops during school breaks which helped her relax (and Mom's agenda was to provide her with immune support.)

I asked the young man if he could help me as I'd had an accident and my back was hurting to extend and reach. He agreed. I asked him to hop up on the table, sit on her bum, and after I dropped each oil on her back, he was to spread them in the traditional RainDrop fashion.

When we finished dropping oils on her back the young man sat in a chair as I applied the compresses, and started to work on her feet. His formal erect posture slid down the chair into a 'teen like sprawl'. With questioning voice and a big sigh he said 'Boy, do I ever feel relaxed?'

I chuckled under my breath. Amazing what a little experience does to alter rigid perceptions. I explained the oils worked as a transdermal patch, thus Meghan would be feeling more relaxed than him as we had applied them to her whole spine, and the compresses would drive the benefits into her muscles and organs etc. I asked if he had a taste of what essential oils could do to support a person? Did he understand why Meghan liked the treatments? His head nodded an affirmative 'Yes'.

She dozed on the table. He went to the patio and 'sprawled and zoned' in the sun. She whispered that perhaps he was 'getting it'.

Later, after she awoke from a sleep, and he came back in he suggested that they should get some for the next semister at University. It would help them relax from the 'pressures'.

In my professional experience, RainDrop does wonders for the client, and the practitioner. Personally, I love the smell that lingers after RainDrop.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine — "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
2.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: immune-system — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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 — "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 — "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 — "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.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
