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.

My daughter ate hidden MSG in cheese pizza which resulted in a seizure. I didn't know at the time of my 18 month old daughter's seizure what total effects it had on her body. Within two minutes after the seizure ended I applied a few drops of Frankincense oil and Sandalwood to my daughter's lifeless body.

I put one drop of Frankincense oil on the crown of her head and on each big toe. Then I put a drop of Sandalwood on each big toe and performed Reflexology on the big toes. The big toes are the brain reflex points on the feet.

It took less than one minute for my daughter to perk back up to her normal ornery self. She was screaming at her siblings (who hovered over her with concern) to go away, and she was able to look around the room normally, and she didn't sleep for 24 hours like some parents report. She was back to playing and loving like she normally does as if nothing had happened.

For the next week I continued to put the DiGize oil blend on her belly button. I also continued with Sandalwood on her big toes as well. I did this for all my children as well as myself since we all complained of stomachaches.

We hear about the sesquiterpene value in certain oils, how these oils don't contain oxygen themselves but they piggyback oxygen into the cells. I have learned more about molecular compounds from Dr. David Stewart's books. He is a retired Methodist minister and former university science professor who authored a book about "Oils of the Bible".

On page 192, he describes how essential oils "contain Phenylpropanoids which clean the receptor sites so cells can communicate with each other, monoterpenes which reprogram miswritten information in the cellular memory (DNA) and sesquiterpenes which erase or deprogram miswritten codes."

He also describes the small molecular weight of these compounds and how they can penetrate the blood-brain barrier. It was because of this that I chose Sandalwood to put on her big toes because it contains 90% sesquiterpenes which pass through the blood-brain barrier and stopped the after-effects of the seizure as well as carry oxygen to her brain.

I have also helped a woman stop recurrent seizures by using the Brain Power oil blend with Jasmine and Young Living supplements. Brain Power contains Frankincense, Sandalwood and Cedarwood among other oils. She also used DiGize on her belly button.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: twitching — "Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
2.Associated topics: twitching — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
3.Associated topics: twitching — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
4.Associated topics: twitching — "[T]he effect of essential oils on skeletal and smooth muscle...: The first type of effect on skeletal muscle involved a contracture and inhibition of the twitch response to nerve stimulation shown by a sample of clary sage, dill, fennel, frankincense, and nutmeg; ...lavender reduced the twitch response alone."Link
5.Associated topics: seizures — "Researchers... suggest making anticonvulsants based on pinene amino acids [found in pine, other conifers, cannabis, and other plants].... Amino ester of an amino acid, belonging to alpha-pinenes, showed great anticonvulsant activity... compared to Phenobarbital, a common anticonvulsant agent.... [S]cientists... suggest this derivative becoming the basic substance for development of new almost non-toxic anticonvulsant agents, thus making life of epilepsy patients easier."Link
