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.


Several years ago I was told I had fibromyalgia. This was before I knew about the oils. I never had total relief from the pain until I started using the essential oils. (I tried many treatments).

To start with I used the PanAway oil blend on the pain areas, Lavender and the Peace & Calming oil blend on my feet at night to have a proper sleep. Once I started to have a good sleep the pain was less. I used the Joy oil blend because I had many weepy days and the Joy always made me feel better. My daughter also gave me a Raindrop treatment and I was pain free for 2 days for the first time.

In the past 18 months I have had a number of stressors that in the past would cause me to "crash" as I call it. However that didn't happen. The oils I have been using in the past 12 months are the Valor oil blend, Idaho Balsam Fir and Joy.All are applied on my feet, areas of pain and inhaled. Occasionally I need to use the Lavender to sleep but not often any more. I also used SAM-e in the winter time last year. I haven't needed to use it yet this year.

I also have a chiropractor appointment monthly and a massage monthly. I drink NingXia Red juice daily plus multivitamins that have trace minerals in them, Vita green and magnesium. I am able to work full time plus I do the oil business and another business. So I would say I am really healthy right now. As I am writing this out I again am thankful for the oils. What a difference in my life!

2.Associated topics: insomnia,depression,fibromyalgia-(FMS) — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: depression — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
4.Associated topics: depression — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
5.Associated topics: depression — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
6.Associated topics: depression — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
