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 am a Reflexologist in Cookeville, TN. The oils are a natural complement to my practice, but one night the kids were over and had to stay the night due to weather.

My daughter had forgotten to pack my grandson's Adderall, of which his usual dose is 35 mg! I had noticed his disrupting behavior which included bouncing around and pestering his brother along with the short attention span common in this situation.

I called him into my home office for a "visit" and put only two drops of the Peace & Calming oil blend on his hands and had him rub them and put his hands to his neck to get the oil there. This was followed by just one drop of Peppermint which he dearly loves and repeated the sequence. He said, "Now I smell like a candy cane" and went in to taunt his brother.

In a few minutes my daughter called to me and was concerned me that the oil was reacting badly. I went in to see what was the matter when what did I see? My grandson was sitting quietly at the little one's table teaching his younger brother how to color! My daughter asked me what I did to cause this change. She was amazed at the reaction the oil had on him.

She cannot stop giving him the prescription due to withdrawal issues; but, she feels confident to use the combination whenever she runs out of the prescription and she is consulting with her doctor over the use of the oil versus the prescription. I will try to post again when and if the doctor relents.

Remember, he has an obligation to treat with what is called "the best practice" and to go against that doctrine will simply require more APPROVED research to overwhelm the medical community with the facts of the effects of the oils (with no side effects) versus the prescription. For the record, my grandson is seven years of age.

Please note that I am NOT a doctor, I am a Reflexologist and I am not telling you his need for the prescription is ended, he still has the condition for which this was prescribed.

I am saying that in the absence of the prescription, Peace & Calming will suffice until the refill can be obtained. It is up to the professional researchers to do a proper test of this on a sufficient number of people to either prove or disprove the value of this alternative.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: behavior,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: behavior,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
3.Associated topics: behavior — "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
4.Associated topics: behavior — "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
5.Associated topics: behavior — "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
6.Associated topics: behavior,emotions-/-feelings — "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
7.Associated topics: behavior,attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-(ADHD) — "The results indicate that children’s shared attention behaviors increased during aromatherapy massage and that other aspects of their behavior also changed over the course of the research. Family involvement in the study enabled these changes to be transferred from school to home.... Steve Solomons explores the implications of his research for new teaching and learning opportunities for children with autistic spectrum disorders and severe learning difficulties."Link
8.Associated topics: behavior — "[P]re-clinical and clinical research available today demonstrat[es] the power, safety, and effectiveness of natural compounds [particularly aromatherapy] for relieving stress and anxiety.... [S]imple inhalation of patchouli and rose oil reduced sympathetic nervous activity by 40%, with rose oil reducing adrenaline concentrations by 30%.... Lavender oil... has also been studied for the ability to reduce stress, anxiety, aggression,and cortisol levels, among two dozen other potential therapeutic properties."Link
