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.

For over ten years I had experienced a physical pain my lower back. The severity and frequency of the pain varied and I endeavored to relieve it by using a range of modalities including physiotherapy, osteopathy, hot stone massage, deep tissue massage, quantum touch, yoga, pilates, reiki, Bowen therapy as well as visiting a chiropractor.
These modalities all helped me find short term relief, but never a long term solution. Part of me by now had figured out this was an emotional pain but I wasn't really sure what to do about it.

I was becoming more and more frustrated at this pain and one day, whilst doing my morning yoga I said out loud "this is emotional pain and I want it gone!!"

I shared this with a therapist I had been seeing for support through a family crisis period and she suggested we try a technique called EmoTrance, so I agreed. I really liked the sound of EmoTrance because it was body and energy work, similar to EFT.

I sensed that I had dealt with behaviours that had allowed the pain to be created in the first instance, but I hadn't been able to release the residual pain that remained at the cellular level from the past behaviours.

EmoTrance did shift the pain and allowed it to soften but it did not fully flow and release. I finally decided to give the Feelings Kit a try. It had been sitting on my bedside table for several weeks by now!

I will be honest, I used this kit and the protocol with some healthy skepticism and was amazed when the pain shifted and released completely. It has not returned in 4 months.

The oil blend Release was the pivotal oil that helped me let go, gently and without extensive psychotherapy of the residual emotion causing me physical pain. I still don't quite believe it is gone or fully accept how it went....but it worked!

There are times when I get a little discomfort in that area, and I apply Release or the Forgiveness oil blend topically and it shifts and moves pretty well straight away.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: mood-swings,emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: back-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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
5.Associated topics: mood-swings,emotions-/-feelings — "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
6.Associated topics: mood-swings,stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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
7.Associated topics: mood-swings,stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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
8.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "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
