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 friend of mine fell off of a horse, was stepped on, and hit the ground fairly hard. After going to the doctor and getting a CT scan that confirmed she had a concussion, she had a pounding headache and bruising on her head. I wondered what essential oils would help.

After doing some research on some oils that could help with the swelling while crossing the blood/brain barrier, I placed 2 drops each of Lavender, Frankincense oil, Helichrysum and Cedarwood in her left hand.

I had her circle twice and then apply it to her temples, the back of her neck and the crown of her head, where she also had a goose-egg-sized bump.

About an hour later, she said that her headache had disappeared and that she was feeling really a lot better. Even the next morning she said she was much improved.

We plan on continuing to apply the oils every 12 hours.
