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.

My father aged 92, suffered several syncopal attacks officially termed Transient Ischaemic Attack - a mini stroke in effect. The TIA causes fainting and can be a warning that a full stroke is possible in the future.

My father refused all conventional medicine, thank goodness, but would allow the essential oils to be rubbed on his skin. Dad would not take the oils regularly nor would he have them orally.

Several times I found my father on the floor and he would gradually "wake up". On two separate occasions however, Dad actually stopped breathing completely and his lips went blue due to lack of oxygen.

I stretched him out on the floor, face up and rubbed about 20 drops of the Aroma Life blend all over his chest. Within 20 seconds, he started to breathe and his colour started to improve.

I have revived Dad twice using this method. The power of the oils is amazing!

Supporting Scientific Study
stroke - "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
