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.

On February 12, 2004, I was standing in the crosswalks at an intersection looking at crossing traffic. The reason I was in the crosswalks & not on the sidewalk is because there was an illegally parked delivery truck 1/2 way in the walk. As I looked up & down the street, I then felt something against my right knee. I looked down & saw the bumper of the truck pressing into my leg.

While I like to think my agility of a professional concert dancer had me leap out of the way, I believe the truck helped me out in that aspect. I did happen to have some PanAway in my purse (actually, I keep the whole Essential 7 kit in my purse) which I applied to my knee area as soon as I was able to get to my business lunch.

When I got home, I applied Valor, more 'discomfort-relieving oils' (PanAway, Aroma Siez and Relieve It) Marjoram & Cypress with Regenelone on top of it all. These are the oils I'd use on a daily basis. What is so amazing is that I had no pain or discomfort after using these oils. I just applied them at first sign of discomfort. I also supplemented with AgilEase. If I'd had Polyzyme, I'd have taken that as well. (I've muscle tested Sulfurzyme and it's a supplement I don't need, go figure?)

I went to an MD for legal purposes the next day. Basically it was a waste except for the paperwork I could submit to the insurance people. I then felt that I was emotionally holding onto my feelings & fear & that it was beginning to 'set' into my body. Not wanting this, I applied Release oil not only to my leg but to my right medial deltoid (shoulder) which was more painful than the knee (shows me the truck really did push me aside), my spine & liver. I felt that I had to move my body so I popped in a yoga tape (not smart in hindsight) & within a minute & started to have a deep emotional release. I sobbed deeply releasing all the pent up stuff inside. I sobbed through out my yoga practice (wasn't easy to hold myself up in certain poses due to the oils on my hands) & after I just lay on my matt crying. My husband, Kevin, came in, gathered me into his arms & just held me for at least another 1/2 hour. I felt so much lighter & clearer afterwards.

A week later, I went to a chiropractor (the soonest appt available) who had me on an aggresive treatment plan. It was 3x a week for 8 weeks! For my assessment visit, I sat there in the waiting room & my oils wore off. I was in so much pain that I couldn't even see straight. I thought I was going to pass out. I almost put on my oils but I realized that it would be best for the doc to examine me in my 'natural' state without support of any kind.

As soon as I was able to get back into the waiting room, I pulled out my oils. I must have looked like a drug addict or alcoholic I was shaking so badly getting my oils out. I could barely get the lids open. Again, within seconds, all pain/discomfort disappeared. The doctor told me 'NO YOGA!!!' but did allow me to begin swimming about a week earlier than planned as well as going back to yoga earlier than originally he said I could. He did comment that my body took well to chiropractic. I told him about the oils & he said, 'Oh, that's nice..' In the meantime, I'm back to working out & I'm having no repercussions.

One more thing. After my X-rays were taken, we discovered I have (had?) scoliosis & reverse curve in my neck. I do what I can to receive a Raindrop Technique session weekly. Very supportive as well. In a way, it was good for me to not have my oils on before my assessment because it showed me really how injured I was & how supportive the oils truly are. I love my oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."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: emotions-/-feelings — "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 — "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: emotions-/-feelings,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
