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.

A 68 year old friend lives/takes care of her 93 year old father. She has symptoms of ADD and the stress from her father makes her ADD worse. He is demeaning to her and has no respect for her. She takes it very personally.

I had her smell the Peace & Calming oil blend and she had resonated with it. I told her it may really help to keep in a better frame of mine during stressful times, so I gave her a sample bottle to use each day.

A week later, I saw her and she was frantic, scattered, tired, sad, frustrated and defeated. I asked her if she had been using Peace & Calming... "no"... I encouraged her that she needed to use it regularly to help her with the stress or her dad and her ADD. She agreed she would use it, she took it out and smelled it and put a few drops of it on her neck, hands and feet.

Two days later, she is balanced, focused, happy, calm and contented. She looked and sounded so much better than 2 days prior. Her presence was positive and she was at ease with life with her dad. She looked and felt great.

This was a big change from her usual defeated self image.
