After giving birth I fell into severe depression for several months. It was bad. Real bad. My hormones were so out of whack, it was scary. Worse of all, I didn't understand what was going on at that time. I just knew what I was experiencing, and it was bad. Years later I learned a bit more, and that the Omega Blue, essential fatty acids (omega 3,6,9) would have helped tremendously.

But what I did do at the time was talk with another oiler/health practitioner. She recommended that I use Magnify Your Purpose oil blend four times a day internally and topically for as long as I needed to.

I used empty veggie caps to put the oil in, then took internally four times a day. I put the oil on my chest, wrists, and belly. Within just a couple weeks I noticed a significant improvement. I also was using other oils throughout the time, the oils I was 'drawn' to. I kept oiling. I took time to experience the oils, and at the same time, I took time to relax. The oils were the roadway OUT of severe postpartum depression.

It took a while to get fully on track. NingXia Red helped tremendously as well.
