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.

I rode dressage and did a lot of studying, practicing, taking lessons, and attending clinics. I hauled Abby all over the valley where we lived and hours away to ride in the mountains, trail riding by ourselves and with others. Abby was always very laid back and easy going whether we were alone or with a group of horses. She got along with everyone.

Then one summer my normally sweet mare turned into a raging wild thing! She began attacking other horses and then turned that rage on me, ears pinned, teeth bared. Quickly I decided to get her to the vet to see what was going on. Was she in pain? What the heck was happening? She was unrideable.

The vet started with some blood tests which showed high levels of testosterone in her system. Her levels were twice what a stallion would have during the height of breeding season. After doing an ultrasound, the vet found a grapefruit-sized tumor on one of her ovaries. This was the root of all the aggressive behavior.

The tumor was so large that the vet was going to have to remove it through her flank. They would have to remove the tumor and ovary. This was going to be a major surgery. We scheduled it for a week from her diagnosis.

My Aunt Sara called me during this week long wait and asked if Abby and I would help her make a video about applying the oils to animals. She had the dog and the cat but needed a horse and a nice barn setting to film in. I agreed after telling her how dangerous Abby had become because of her tumor.

Aunt Sara said we would use a lot of the Peace & Calming oil blend and hoped that would help Abby relax. This sounded good to me! I needed a lot of Peace & Calming myself to help me deal with all the stress I had been feeling over the tumor!

I found a barn that would allow us to film, and we went ahead with the project.

We had a wonderful time making the DVD. There was lots of laughter and silliness, and through it all Abby only tried to bite, paw, and kick at us a tiny bit. After applying what felt like an entire bottle of Peace & Calming to her knees and chest (and allowing her to smell and taste it), we were able to get on with the show!

When I took Abby back to the vet for her surgery, he wanted to do another ultrasound to check on the size of the tumor to be sure it hadn't gotten any larger.

Instead what he found was that it was gone. GONE. Vanished, without a trace. He was stunned. He said he had never witnessed a tumor of that size just disappearing! He asked what I did, and I told him about the oils and the DVD that my aunt and I had done. He was absolutely wowed and told me to keep up the good work!

Abby walked out of there with a clean bill of health. Years ago I sold her to a great home where she foaled a few lovely foals and gave her new owner's kids riding lessons.

She is now 20 years old and is retired from breeding but still living a healthy, happy life!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: behavior — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: hormones — "Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."Link
3.Associated topics: hormones — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4.Associated topics: tumor-/-growth-/-neuroma — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
5.Associated topics: hormones — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
6.Associated topics: behavior — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
7.Associated topics: behavior — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
8.Associated topics: behavior,hormones — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
