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.

Working at a kids camp where I use oils both with kids and horses, I have a lot of good stories but here is a favorite. I do not put oils on campers but use aromatherapy. The children at this camp are as young as 10. They sleep in tents, in the woods, real woods, 25 miles from civilization.

This little 10 year old fellow was having first night homesickness real bad. I got out the 16 pack that I keep with me and told him that picking out a smell that he favored to help him feel better really would work (I made it a better story) I let him smell every bottle talking to him and calming him the entire time.

When we got to the final 4 everyone on the porch (camp staff) was watching intently. I made a pretty big deal about his final choice. Now he'd never seen a label nor heard a name so when his final choice, Valor, came up his eyes widened and in wonder he said, "I love the time of the knights in shining armor. They were valiant men." We all were dumbfounded with his remark but I was able to sputter, " See you just needed to be reminded of how much courage you really have". He was now ready to climb back into his bag and was good for the rest of the week. Everyone watching thought it a true oil success. He knew what he needed.
