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 5-year-old son has an old soul, and he is truly a deep, gifted thinker. It is next to impossible for him to associate with children younger than he is, and he gets very frustrated when older children "act like babies" (in his own words). This frustration causes him to isolate himself, and it makes him sad and depressed.

His best friend came over for a sleepover last night. He is 7 years old but at times acts much younger. During the evening I noticed it had grown quiet out back. I saw my son pouting and sitting sadly on his swing. His friend, who loves him dearly and understands his mood swings, was trying to engage him. But my son was having none of it.

I had just received my Young Living starter kit, BUT the Everyday Oils collection was missing (apparently a common problem with this latest batch of orders). The only oil that was in the box was Stress Away. I figured it was as good a time as any to try it and opened the bottle, attaching the included roller.

I called my son in and asked him to let me try something on him. I rolled Stress Away on each of his wrists and on the back of his neck and sent him back to the swing.

Within two minutes -- and I am not exaggerating -- my son was up and running around the yard playing again. I heard his friend ask him if what mama did helped his mood. He said, "Yes, I feel much better now!"

His joy was so evident that my wife, who had been resting in the back bedroom, heard him laughing and came out to ask me if everything was okay. Apparently she had sensed his mood change from back there and was amazed also.

I cannot wait to try out more of these wonderful essential oils, and I will be sure to keep you all posted.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: depression — "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
2.Associated topics: depression — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: depression — "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
4.Associated topics: depression — "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
5.Associated topics: depression — "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
6.Associated topics: depression — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
7.Associated topics: depression — "[T]he lavender fragrance had a beneficial effect on insomnia and depression in women college students."Link
8.Associated topics: depression — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
