Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My 91-year-old mother has been in a nursing home for six years and only leaves her bed by a lift about once a week, so her aches and pains have been increasing. I'm on the other coast, and my family has not used oils enough to apply them to very many situations. However, I finally thought of a way that I might help when my sister mentioned that my mom's hand is clenched (most likely from a stroke).

I mixed about 30 drops of Aroma Siez and 15 drops of Lavender essential oil in a base of 8 ounces of Alba Botanica lotion. I sent it off without much expectation since I knew my mother would only get applications about every other day when my sister could visit.

Then a surprise result occurred from having a massage therapist work on Mom. She used the lotion I mixed up, and here's what my sister wrote:

"Mom is still doing well as far as free from pain goes. She was very happy to let me rub her hands and feet with your lotion today without the usual complaints about sensitivity and too much greasiness. She just purred and reminded me how much she had always enjoyed having this done?! Whatever!

I'm just so happy to see her not hurting for a while. We have about a half-full container of the lotion. I'll let you know if it looks like running out before Mother's Day. Thanks so much for providing that."

It was a total change for Mom, who had complained so much that they had applied a pain patch at the end of 2013 (which resulted in her getting extremely anxious, paranoid, losing her appetite, and hallucinating so much she seemed to be losing her mind). My mother is too sensitive to just about every drug.

I am so glad we found a way to help her. I'm sure the massage was a key factor, as well as getting a fleece pad for her bed. But I know from experience that the right essential oils can do wonders.
