Lavender became my go to oil everyday for my anxiety. I had been on Klonapin for about four years beforehand and never thought I would be able to take myself off it because my anxiety was so bad.

I had heard that Lavender was very good for stress, anxiety, and depression amongst all of the other things it can be used for. I began to inhale it everyday, a few times a day and occasionally put a few drops of it on the bottom of my feet, neck and wrists. Within one week I took myself off of Klonapin and have not been on it since.

Within three weeks the big round blotches of psoriasis that had been haunting my legs and elbows for years had simply disappeared! I had noticed that it was going away slowly but did not put two and two together that Lavender was used to aid in the eradication of psoriasis.

My skin is still discolored from the steroid cream I used to apply that was sticky and thick, and to think that I didn't even apply it to the psoriasis. I just inhaled the oils and put it elsewhere on my body and it still worked!

I am so grateful and I hope my story can help someone else with similar issues!
