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 mare Sophie who was rescued from drought stricken in Western Australia along with her half sister Lilly in 2005. Both horses were only approximately 3 months old at the time. Sophie's mum had died in the quagmire at the bottom of a dam where the pump had been turned off. The two little orphans were under a tree when a friend found them.

These experiences, along with the being rescued and relocated had an emotional impact on Sophie. Many people who saw her often commented on the haunted look in her eyes and her general dejected and sad aura.

Sophie has taught me a great deal about the sentient capacity of horses and along the way we have explored different modalities to help her heal and achieve wholeness. That journey has now led us to essential oils.

Sophie's first experience with an essential oil was with a proprietary oil blend called "Forgiveness" which is part of the Feelings Kit. A friend suggested it might help Sophie so we tried it. This was also my first experience with essential oils.

The essential oil was simply applied on her solar plexus and root chakra's (energy centres). I instinctively applied the oils to those areas and later research revealed that the solar plexus chakra was the energy centre critical for addressing imbalances that resulted in the dejected and withdrawn behaviour. The root chakra is the energy centre associated with survival and grounding.

The Forgiveness oil blend contains an uplifting combination of 15 oils including Rose and Frankincense. This blend was formulated to release harmful memories and promote a willingness to move forward.

Sophie instantly processed a release that included lip licking, yawning, head shaking and stretching - these are classic signals that an internal shift has occurred in a horse.

The whole experience only lasted about ten minutes but there was lightness in the way she moved afterwards, as though she had finally released the residue of past pain. It might not sound earth shattering but it was for us as it heralded the final shift Sophie needed to lose the haunted look in her eye and to find peace.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: emotions — "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: depression — "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
3.Associated topics: depression — "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
4.Associated topics: emotions,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
5.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
6.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
7.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
8.Associated topics: emotions — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
