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 he gives himself a correction dose of insulin and per protocol. Then he will put a drop of Ocotea on the palm of his hand. I can expect his bgl to drop about 10 mmol/L in 1 hour-a much quicker response than using insulin alone. If his bgl is really high or he has ketones we will add a drop of Copaiba to that and expect a drop of about 15 mmol/L in an hour.

If he is asleep at the time I just put the oil on the handiest part of his body-tummy, back, whatever.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: diabetes, high blood glucose.
