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 8-year-old daughter has Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). She gets overstimulated and can become easily overwhelmed in situations that most people handle just fine.

For example, a day of shopping can push her over the edge, birthday parties with lots of noise are difficult for her, and even being in an unfamiliar situation is hard. We have struggled for many years to help her process through these situations and live a normal functioning life.

I had never even considered essential oils until I ordered our starter kit. I had used Lavender on our baby, and I thought maybe it would work on my 8-year-old daughter as well. That is when my friend suggested we use Peace & Calming.

We did... and man! What a difference! All of a sudden, my daughter was not spending hours in tears, crying over every small thing. She was able to function without needing to be super close to me (as was the case prior).

I was not the only one to notice a difference. One day my daughter came up to give me a hug, and I smelled Peace & Calming on her. I asked her if she had used it. She told me that yes, she had, and that she was beginning to feel sad and knew the oils would help her.

We keep a bottle of Peace & Calming in the diaper bag now and always have it with us. The other kids (I am a mom of 6) will all ask for the "calm oil" if they are upset. It has been so nice to have this oil to turn to!
