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.

My 9 year old son has T1D and uses an insulin pump. When his blood glucose is high we give a correction dose of insulin through the pump as per normal protocol. In addtion, he will put 1 drop of Ocotea in his hand and inhale. I can expect his bgl to come down 10 mmol/L in 1 hour-a much quicker response than using insulin alone. If his bgl is very high he will also add 1 drop of Copaiba. This will bring his bgl down by an extra 5+ mmol/L in the same time period. If it is nighttime and he is asleep, I just put the oil on the most accessible part of his body-back, tummy, whatever. What a godsend!
