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 dear friend, called me from the ER, obviously badly shaken, her voice weak and trembling. She had been on her Honda motor scooter and to avoid colliding with a car that seemingly appeared out of nowhere, she had to tip the bike over onto her right side.

When I arrived at the hospital she appeared to be in a mild state of shock and quite traumatized. When the room cleared of hospital caregivers I applied several drops of the Trauma Life oil blend (calming, grounding, helps release trauma) on the back of her neck and the Valor oil blend (balances nervous system, calming) on her feet.

Within seconds she seemed more present and peaceful. I used several drops of each of the PanAway oil blend (relieves pain), Basil oil (restores clarity and alertness, relieves pain), Marjoram oil (muscle) and Lemongrass oil (ligaments) on her injured shoulder, bruised ribs and broken foot.

As other friends, nurses and doctors came into the room they commented on the aroma and some lingered as long as possible to enjoy it themselves. She was offered pain meds several times and declined as the essential oils and oil blends were providing the comfort she needed.

Several hours later when we got her home she took an Epsom Salts bath with Lavender oil and the Release oil blend in it. The next day I took her a bottle of Nature Rich's Fortified Mineral Gel (balances pH level of the skin and is outstanding for pain relief - the Gel along with essential oils provided great relief for me when I fractured my spine a few years ago - email me if you would like to know more).

As a renowned Cranio Sacral therapist and teacher, she was scheduled to attend and speak at the National Conference in California just a few days after her accident. She decided to keep with the plan and during the week there received Cranio Sacral and Trauma treatments from colleagues.

After arriving home, lymphatic treatments were beneficial for relieving swelling, and with continued use of the Gel and oils (Lavender oil was important for scar prevention) and the gentle loving care of her housemate, she has made quite a remarkable recovery.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: muscle-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
2.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Common herbs, essential oils, and monoterpenes potently modulate bone metabolism.... we investigated several common herbs rich in essential oils (sage, rosemary, and thyme) and essential oils extracted from these herbs and other plants (oils of sage, rosemary, juniper, pine, dwarf pine, turpentine, and eucalyptus) as well as their monoterpene components (thujone, eucalyptol, camphor, borneol, thymol, alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, bornylacetate as well as menthol) and found that they inhibit bone resorption.... Our study demonstrates for the first time that essential oils and monoterpenes are efficient inhibitors of bone resorption...."Link
3.Associated topics: bones-/-osteo — "Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."Link
4.Associated topics: scars — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
5.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
6.Associated topics: muscle-pain — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
7.Associated topics: scars — "[A] pulverized mixture of four herbs including Agrimonia Eupatoria (A), Nelumbo Nucifera Gaertn (N), Boswellia Carteri (B) [Frankincense], and Pollen Typhae Angustifoliae (P)... was first described in Chinese canonical medicine about 2000 years ago for treatment of various trauma disorders, such as hemostasis [bleeding], anti-inflammatory, analgesia [pain], and wound healing, etc.... [W]e showed that local ANBP treatment not only significantly enhanced wound healing by relieving inflammation, increasing formation of granulation tissue, and accelerating re-epithelialization, but [it] also reduced scar formation by decreasing collagen production [and] protuberant height and volume of scars and [by] increasing collagen maturity.... [Results show that ANBP] promot[es] wound healing and alleviat[es] scar formation, which may be an effective therapy for human wounds at the earliest stage."Link
