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.

My mother-in-law was dying of cancer, which was diagnosed way too late. By then, it circled her heart, and her extremities got swollen - she was dying in bed in the hospital. We were able to move her closer to us to a nursing home. She was transferred late at night. So when we came to visit, she was fast asleep. Not wanting to disturb her sleep, I put a drop of Frankincense on each foot.

The following day I brought the most delicious chocolate I could find, my mother-in-law's favorite treat. With her eyes closed, my mother-in-law accepted a small piece of chocolate, which she savored. After that she agreed to my putting oils on her.

The following days she greatly improved, while I continued applying the oils: she got up, went to physical therapy, ate (unfortunately ice cream - 3 times a day), participated in the events taking place at the nursing home, smiled and enjoyed music.

Which oils did I use? Many, since she had so many problems, including diabetes, years-long swollen legs, and was on a bad diet. Here is the list of some of the oils I remember using: Frankincense, Sacred Frankincense, Myrrh, Peppermint, JuvaFlex, Wintergreen, En-R-Gee, DiGize, Thieves, Melaleuca (Alternifolia), Juniper, foot baths with raw apple cider vinegar, followed by Raindrop oils on her feet, and Lemongrass and Cypress, Lavender and Sandalwood on her legs.

I did not have Aroma Life so I improvised by layering the oils. I put oils in the capsules as well, which she swallowed. My mother-in-law's legs, which were swollen for over 20 years, were not swollen anymore, and she got better in so many ways! We were planning on taking her home.

It was all good, but not good enough. I never did the Raindrop on her back, her diet was one of the worst ones, the nursing home complained of my using essential oils, and then I got sick and didn't visit her for 3 days. When I came to see her again, her condition started going downhill. Yet, she gathered her last strength to go to physical therapy - and that's after not eating for a few days already (which no-one informed us about).

I put my cPrime bracelet on her head, gave her Peppermint to inhale, and she stood up straight - the tallest I've ever seen her. She was a heroine!

The last rite I performed on her was by putting White Angelica on her head - she fell asleep peacefully on Christmas night, about 4 weeks after she got transferred.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to use Ocotea for her diabetes - that would have helped to balance the sugar from the ice cream. Much later I learned from my husband that the redness on her legs, most likely, was melanoma - I could have used more oils for skin cancer on her legs, if I knew.
