Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
I recently listened to one of the old training tapes, and Gary said Aroma Life on the heart, followed by Joy, to help heal the heart and stop the trauma from imprinting there. Thought that sounded pretty neat.
I have been working with a friend who's 89 year old mother just lost her sweetheart of 67 years. Mom's CHF was being severely taxed by bronchitis and the overwhelming grief. She could not grieve and every time she cried her lungs would fill up. (Lungs being the area where deep grief and joy are held).
In general, breathing was labored, she couldn't sleep, her legs were filled with edema. The doctor wanted her hospitalized, but this sweet lady just wanted to be home with her daughter. They had never used oils, and Mom wasn't up for meeting anyone new at the time, so I gave them Valor to place on her feet, Gary's bronchitis blend to massage on top of it and apply a warm towel wrap. I left a diffuser with Eucalyptus Radiata which helped her breath and sleep right away, as did the RC for her lungs/bronchials.
When we experience trauma, we often feel disconnected and ungrounded, literally unplugged from those dynamic life forces in the ground and universe. No doubt the chakras have closed shut. To work with a person's feet, especially the elderly, helps them ground and fill up again. It often helps them be steadier and more connected to the feet as well.
My friend's mother brightened up ten shades from just the first treatment. She slept deeply for 5 hours and awoke feeling refreshed and hopeful. It was just as helpful to her daughter who also regained her color and brightness. (The daughter had been quite grey in color and energy and her emotions had felt "flat lined," a little Valor on her feet, and Lemon on her hands to inhale brought her right back!) I also left some Lemon for her to diffuse knowing that would begin to ease the mother's depression.
My friend marveled that 12 hours earlier, her mother was in such a state as to need hospitalization, and yet now she was full of life again and quickly recovering. Her edema had lessened significantly as well.
The next day I happened to listen to that tape, so we have intended to visit again when I would apply the Aroma Life and Joy and do a Vita Flex session on mother's feet, but for the moment, we are operating on what she seems to want and when. She's doing fine and I'll probably be invited back in the next week or so. They also want to begin supporting the CHF in general.
Hope this is useful,
