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.

Here's a list of what I take with me in my small essential oil case that I use for my first aid kit:

DiGize -- great for putting a couple of drops on my tongue for an upset stomach or diarrhea.

Frankincense -- one drop every now & then on a pre-cancerous skin lesion helps it fade. I also use Frankincense for meditation and contemplation practices.

Helichrysum -- I keep this on hand to stop bleeding. I've had a few experiences myself where I know this works and my daughter tried it on my 2-year old grandson. Stopped his lip from bleeding after he'd fallen and bit his lip. She put a couple of drops of Helichrysum on a Q-tip. She was amazed at how the bleeding stopped.

Lavender -- I add a couple of drops to my wash cloth when taking a shower or add a few drops to bath salts when soaking in the tub. I also put a couple of drops on the palms of my hands and then rub my hands over my pillow to help me relax and fall asleep -- especially when I'm on a trip and away from my own bed.

Peppermint -- I put a drop on my tongue to freshen my breath; put a couple of drops on the bottom of my feet to lower my body temperature; and I often just open the bottle to sniff to help clear my head and to make me feel more alert.

Raven & RC -- I usually use these two blends together -- a drop or two of each in my palm and then apply to the bottoms of the feet to help congestion from colds or allergies. Then it's nice to just hold my hands over my mouth and nose and breathe in the aroma -- breathing with my mouth open sometimes or just through the nose.

ImmuPower -- Whenever I feel my immune system could use extra support, I use ImmuPower blend.

Thieves -- Anytime I'm around others who have colds I make sure that I begin my mornings by putting a couple of drops of Thieves blend on the bottoms of my feet. AND, I end my day by doing the same thing before going to bed. If I notice even a slight cold symptom for myself, I use the Thieves blend on the bottom of my feet AND ingest a capsule by mouth. I used about 6-7 drops of Thieves blend along with 2-3 drops of Oregano in a veggie cap. I'll take one at night. Then, if I come down with a cold, I'll take 2 a day (am and pm).

Lemon & Grapefruit -- I alternate between using Lemon and Grapefruit essential oils in my water or ice tea. Very refreshing.

Valor -- This blend is often called "chiropractor in a bottle" and I've experienced the truth of this statement on a number of occasions. Now that the roll-ons are available, I can just roll the Valor on from the base of my neck down a bit and then from my sacrum upward. Then I lay down on my back and let my body adjust itself as best it can. Of course, this does not take the place of my chiropractor, but it does offer relief until I can see her.

Melrose -- I have used this blend to help relieve vaginal yeast infections or vaginitis by using a drop with aloe jelly and applying liberally.

Myrtle -- one or two drops in palms; brush palms together; then cup my hands over my eyes being VERY careful NOT to touch my eyes.

White Angelica -- I use this instead of perfume. A wonderful way to raise my vibration -- quite uplifting.

Lady Scalerol -- I also use this instead of perfume and have received many compliments.

Sacred Mountain -- I use this instead of perfume AND I use it in bath salts for relaxing soak baths.
