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.

"Seek the natural way"...has been my motto since I was a teenager. God put many plants on this earth: trees, flowers, leafy plants and herbs, everything after its own kind. Some have strong aromas, some are for beauty, but many are for food and medicine. This is the natural way. The term "aromatherapy" was coined by the French and actually means "the therapeutic use of aromatic plants".

When I discovered essential oils and realized that here was the very essence of certain plants that could easily be used for healing, cleaning, even clearing out old unwanted emotions I began a journey of discovery and study that is ongoing and excites me still. I find myself falling into a natural rhythm of use of many of these essential oils.

Lemon is very amazing. It is cleansing, uplifting and I use it every day when I wipe down my kitchen counters as I feel it removes any germs or bacteria. I will put a drop in my drinking water to assure more purity. All of the citrus oils - Orange, Bergamot, Tangerine and Lime are excellent for cleaning.

I mix a few drops in water with castille soap for cleaning my bathrooms. If I get ink on my hand or paint, a few drops of Lemon oil or any of the citrus oils so very easily removes the paint or ink. I always stand amazed and say to myself, "why don't people know about this?"

I learned about mixing Mountain Savory, Oregano and Lemon in capsules (1-2 drops each) and taken internally for three doses only eight hours apart that attack those viruses within the body. I no longer had a need to take antibiotics. When I had open heart surgery and went to the dentist, I totally put my trust in these oils and now use that solely for any time that I may have need for antibiotics.

Frankincense is holy to me; it was one of the first gifts brought to Jesus in the New Testament. Myrrh is good for the skin; it is an antiseptic and also has a wonderful fragrance. A few drops of Peppermint rubbed into the feet of my ten year old niece helped reduce her fever in a matter of an hour; a drop in water helps an upset does a drop of Ginger oil. Basil oil is good for your muscles.

Lavender is good for so many things...burns of course...but any skin eruptions. Cinnamon and Clove oils are two of my favorites as they conquer bacterial infection. I use them daily in cleaning and sometimes put a drop of Cinnamon in my hands and rub it all over my arms for the uplifting smell.

Of course, you need to be careful as some of these oils are so strong they can burn dilute with almond or jojoba oil. I would say a tablespoon of carrier oil to one drop of the essential oil. Understanding the chemistry and how these oils work to help assist me is a life-long pursuit, but well worth the effort. I want to be clearer and clearer as to what I am doing and how to teach others.

This is my first attempt to share what has been my own private journey. I could go on and on and on but this is what I have to say for now. Enjoy, study and know what you are doing and then have fun in the use of these wonderful "friends", the essential oils.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: 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: virus — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
3.Associated topics: virus — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
4.Associated topics: upset-stomach-/-tummy — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
5.Associated topics: upset-stomach-/-tummy — "Gastroprotective effects of Lemon essential oil: In ethanol model, CL (citrus lemon) and LIM (limonene) [component of Lemon] demonstrated 100% of gastroprotection.... In the indomethacin model, CL and LIM offered effective gastroprotection...."Link
6.Associated topics: infection,bacteria — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
7.Associated topics: infection,bacteria — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
8.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
