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.

This testimonial will likely help you to decide to use Cymbalta or not. After years of struggling with SAD which turned into year round anxiety and depression I succumbed to going on Cymbalta. I was desperate and tired of being a lump on the sofa. That was a little more than a year ago and before I became an oiler (which was just a couple months later). Thank goodness I made the decision for the healthier approach to living and healing.

I felt great mentally while on the Cymbalta. The side effects were not fun - drenching night sweats and achy hip joints which made sleep difficult. Although my husband liked the new, emotionally level me, he just couldn't understand how miserable the side effects were. (He works nights so he is only home a couple of nights each week.)

About three weeks ago I saw the doctor who put me on Cymbalta to discuss coming off it and started the process. The night sweats are subsiding, I'm an emotional roller coaster and the brain zaps are AWFUL! I continue to use the Joy oil blend all the time as well as Stress Away, Peace & Calming, Citrus Fresh, and Rutavala. It feels like my head is zapped every time I move or blink. I've been using Brain Power and Clarity too with good results. Next I'm going to try the Raindrop Technique. I will update this testimonial after that is done.
