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 mother will be 90 this year and has advanced dementia. She fell and got a nasty bruise at the base of her spine. I went to the essential oils reference book to see what oils to try and was directed to Helichrysum oil to help with bruising, Lavender for skin, and Peppermint for pain. I had the care giver alternate these oils every 2 hours, 1-2 drops of each oil.

The healing of the bruise was remarkable, but unexpectedly my mother became very happy and started to be able to carry on a coherent conversation - something she had not done in a long time.

Puzzled, I went back to the reference book to try to understand what was happening. I cross referenced information and found that Helichrysum stimulates the neurotransmitters of the brain and is uplifting to the subconscious.

In addition, the oils were applied at the base of the spine which probably had more of an effect on the brain. Even more amazing, she had been taking long naps, sleeping most of her days away. She started reading and I now check out large print books from the library for her and she has finished 5 books!

This showed me that we may use the oils to achieve one result and other wonderful side results can occur. Until you try them, you don't know what amazing things can happen.
