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 have a long term client with cerebral palsy with spastic quadriplegia (meaning both arms and legs are affected), speech problems, and mild retardation.

The first time that the Aroma Siez oil blend was applied, the client indicated feeling a sensation in his hand. With repeated use along with massage therapy, rapid progress was noted in a short period of time, over approximately 4 weeks.

Lavender, the Peace & Calming oil blend and the Trauma Life oil blend have also been beneficial for use with this particular person. The family applies Lavender to his feet at night to sleep better.

The Peace & Calming oil blend helps during MT sessions to induce relaxation and allows involuntary movements to subside.

The Trauma Life blend has helped in particular during Craniosacral sessions to help the central nervous system release birth trauma that the mother initially reported.
