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.

Recently, a business associate (Pamela Matherly) and I had a fun and helpful experience with the oils. We boarded a small regional jet for a 2 1/2 hour non-stop ride home. The plane was an hour late in leaving and a frazzled mother and her two young boys, ages 5 & 7, were seated in the row in front of us. After the plane made its ascent, she began giving the boys a series of 'treats' comprised of sugar. My friend and I looked at each other and started timing just how long it would take for the sugar to kick in. Listed below are the 'treats' and the times involved:

Starbursts - after one minute they became revved
Bubblegum - after another minute they became very hyped
Skittles - decidedly more hyped by the second (kicking the seats in front of them and generally bothering people + being very noisey
Commercial apple juice - now they were bouncing off the ceiling (literally) with the flight attendant instructing them to calm down.

Everyone around was very disgusted while feeling rather sorry for the mother who could not control her unruly boys. I'm sure she had not the foggiest idea that she (via the sugar) was the cause of their unwelcomed behavior.

About this time, I remembered one special oil blend in my purse called Peace & Calming which was originally formulated for hyperactive children. We have found it it helpful to almost anyone in any kind of stressful situation. I use if often with clients and with myself.

I pulled out my small bottle and Pamela and I applied a couple of drops each to the palms of our hands and rubbed them together. Then we inhaled the wonderful aroma and then just held our palms in front of us and the vapors wafted to everyone around us. We then started timing how long it would take for those molucules to calm the bouncing boys and frazzled mother. It was two minutes for the five year old and 3 minutes for the one aged seven. We both looked at each other with a huge grin and said simultaneously very softly, "It worked!" Pamela then touched the arm of the mother to let her know that all mothers are in trying circumstances at times and that she would be okay. She smiled so thankfully and seemed to really relax.

Another interesting thing: the people all around us became relaxed and everyone enjoyed the long plane ride home. Had we not done what we did, the ride would have been rather unpleasant for many people - especially those boys and their mother. The positive outcome was accomplished by inhalation alone.

Although I see the oils work every day, I am still in awe every single time I see the results and thank God for giving us these substances for our health and well-being.
