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 was driving down the freeway when a semi, who was changing lanes, hit me from behind, then scraped my left rear fender. I looked in my rear view mirror and saw the truck slowing down. It was at that point that I realized that I needed to stop.

We pulled onto the shoulder to exchange information and examine the damage. I could feel my right mid and upper traps begin to tighten and go into spasm so after the driver and I finished I got back in my car and drove to my destination.

I was on my way to the massage salon where I work with my friend, a LMT, was to facilitate a massage for me. Needless to say I was an emotional mess when I walked in the door. I think I was freaked out and upset more than anything. I asked that instead of massage, I receive a Raindrop session instead. Of course the answer was yes.

I asked that we add in the oils of Lemongrass (ligaments), Idaho Balsam Fir (works great for my tight muscles) and the Relieve It blend (my personal favorite) instead of the PanAway and Aroma Siez blends).

Because my friend is a gifted therapist, she also helped alleviate the beginnings of the spasms. I did cry for most of the time I was on my back but finally settled down. I was in a much calmer state.

When I got up I was still experiencing a bit of disconnect so I applied some of the Grounding oil blend to the bottom of my feet. The bottle was almost empty and I only got the most minuscule amount out. It helped a bit.

Yesterday I applied all the same oils myself on my shoulders and neck. It seems that when I get stressed thinking about the accident I feel tightness coming on so when I do, I slap on more oils.

My intention is to apply those incredible oils on daily for an indefinite time. I'm also going to receive a Raindrop weekly again, for an indefinite time.

The fact that I received a Raindrop first thing after the accident, I feel definitely kept any further injury or pain from setting in.

1.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
2.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "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
3.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
4.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch,muscles — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
5.Associated topics: muscles — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
