Losing a loved one is devastating. Losing a parent can leave you empty.

Over the past 12 years I have spent countless agonizing nights in bouts of too many terrible cries to even count. I have tried therapy. I have tried vitamins. I have tried meditating. I have tried to talk with family and friends. I have limited my alcohol consumption and have planned around triggers.

But what seemed to be the only thing that was actually doing something was... time. I had started to notice my sad days were less and less as I continued to live my life. I accepted that and went on.

Then in February this year my grandmother passed away, one of the last connecting pieces to my father; it shook me. It felt as if the trap door during a magic show, of which I was participating in, suddenly opened. And now I was underneath the lights, laughter, and the crowd waiting to be brought up again.

The previous wound was wide open and breathing new oxygen. I went back to regularly meditating, increased my vitamin intake, and talked with others. But I knew that, ultimately, it would take time to lessen the sadness. Again I accepted it and went on. This was my cycle.

Then in March my boyfriend was about to go from being a fiance to being my husband. But before I could walk up to meet him and say our vows, I knew I needed to have an emotionally clearer head and happier heart. I needed to leave my cycle of waiting for time to heal me. I knew there could be other major triggers of sadness, and waiting was no way to get to a better place.

I asked a friend for some essential oils guidance, and we agreed that Trauma Life and Transformation would be most beneficial for my situation. The first day I used them I could tell that something was different, but it was not anything that qualified as "emotional change."

But on the second day I had completely melted into a pile of sorrow. And for about 7 straight days afterward, I could not do much outside my daily necessities before pouring out the sadness and hurt. It was unbelievably hard, but at the end of each round of crying I felt a little lighter.

I applied the oils at least 10 times a day and could tell all the pain was coming out. It was scary and weird, but I needed to push through. There was a light in this 12-year tunnel.

By the day before I was ready to leave for my wedding, I had calmed down. The catastrophic storm that had brewed, taking over my head and heart, suddenly changed course; and now I was calm. I didn't feel like I could get to that dark and sad place anymore.

Even on the morning of the wedding while I got ready -- the very scene I knew my dad would try and sneak into and see -- I didn't need the oils, and I wasn't sad. I felt strong.

The very things that had made me so sad were no longer a part of me. I couldn't think about the same details and get upset anymore. I felt like the weight of the grief had been lifted.

I hope that my story of using Trauma Life and Transformation can give you a starting point to deal with your grief or at least some belief in the power of essential oils.
