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.

A colleague of mine was in a fairly serious car crash on the entrance ramp to the highway near our office at the end of the day. She hit a car that suddenly stopped in front of her while driving about 40 miles an hour. The car was totaled, the air bags deployed and she was ok but shaken.

I came upon the accident moments after it occurred. I pulled over, grabbed the Tranquil, Valor, Peace & Calming and Stress Away oil blends and ran to her car.

She was safe, wearing her seat belt and protected by the airbags, but completely dazed with tears running down her cheeks. She described the experience later as being frozen, unsure what to do, unable to move or process what had happened. Sounds like shock to me.

Without a word to her I applied Tranquil on the sides of her neck, forehead, wrists, over her head, and began to layer the oils listed above. Valor on the back of the neck and held over her nose to inhale. I basically put all these oils all over her, including her feet.

I watched her dazed eyes focus, and saw her begin to breathe deeper in about 3 minutes. She remembers the Lavender cutting through her mental fog as though it were smelling salts. She recognized the smell, of course, but it cut through the air bag smoke and her shock instantly.

After she began to come around, we realized her face hurt from the impact with the air bags, and I applied Tranquil (for the Lavender) on her nose and forehead where she might bruise. She was able to get out of the car and begin talking and make sense of her surroundings very quickly after that.

She was taken to the hospital to be examined, and took a bottle of Lavender with her. We are thankful for these oils everyday, but especially grateful in times of crisis.
