Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Having suffered with depression for a number of years, and having had such great results with essential oils in other areas of my life, it made sense to turn to them to help me this time.

Depression is a very complicated illness, with differences as well as similarities between cases. I would definitely recommend trying other routes in addition to using the oils. I have seen the doctor, tried antidepressants, cognitive behavioural therapy and homeopathy, amongst other things, but here is my essential oil recommendation:

1 drop of Grounding (split between the soles of both feet)
2 drops of Valor (one on each wrist)
1 drop of Lemon (split between your two temples)
1 drop of Joy (on the heart).

Like I said, depression is very complicated so depending on your personal circumstances you might need to adjust the number of drops and/or the oils. Other oils that I have found useful, particularly when inhaled, include:

Citrus Fresh,
Sacred Mountain,
Lemongrass, and

I think Valor and Grounding are the most important ones to use first, because they bring you back into balance.
