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.


Depression runs in my family. I had been on antidepressants of some kind since 1992. I had tried to stop taking them several times, but within about three weeks, I would crash, and realize that I still had not found a decent alternative. When I first started using the oils, I had hopes that I might be able to finally be free of the antidepressants.

I stopped my medication when I started the oils. (I do not recommend this. I knew my body, and my experience with the particular drug I was taking. DO NOT TRY TO STOP ANTIDEPRESSANTS COLD TURKEY WITHOUT MEDICAL SUPERVISION.)

I used the Harmony oil blend every day, a couple of drops on my forehead, over my heart, and anywhere else I felt I needed it intuitively. I also used Lemon in my water. I probably used 8-12 drops of Lemon in my water every day. I have been totally amazed at the difference in my life.

I have been off of the medication for almost three months now. I still use Lemon daily (3-6 drops), and Harmony when I feel that I need it. If I am having any anxiety, or feeling overwhelmed, Harmony helps me to feel more centered. I did have one period of a few days when I had run out of Lemon and was waiting on my next order.

I began to get very agitated, and my mood plummeted. I got some Lemon from my upline, I used 10 drops that night, and 10 throughout the next day. I literally felt better overnight. It's very calming and uplifting at the same time. And I can assure you I won't let myself run out of Lemon ever again!

2.Associated topics: anxiety,depression — "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
3.Associated topics: anxiety,depression — "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

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
5.Associated topics: anxiety,depression — "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
6.Associated topics: anxiety,depression — "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
