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.

Over the past two months I have experimented with several therapeutic grade, organic, essentail oils to help mitigate the emotional aspects of my bipolar illness. I instinctively loved Helychrysum from my first whiff. I have tried both Frankinsence (which I find very overpowering -but I like it - for a migraine sufferer) and Sandalwood. I have had no depressive episodes or anxiety attacks to date. I have added these oils to the daily journals I keep of my moods and the drugs I take and expect it may take many months to determine their role and usefulness in maintaining my wellness.

Having said that I am a Horticulturist and know that plant oils are very powerful. I just don't, to date, have any meaningful data that would qualify me to give advice. I'll check back in with you in 3 months.
