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.

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link

Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link

Histopathological examination showed that ethanol-induced lesions such as necrosis, erosion, and hemorrhage of the stomach wall were significantly reduced after oral administration of essential oils.... Results suggest that TEO and GEO could reduce the gastric ulcer in rat stomach as seen from the ulcer index and histopathology of the stomach. Moreover, oxidative stress produced by ethanol was found to be significantly reduced by TEO and GEO."Link
