I have had depression for many years. About a year or two ago I was prescribed antidepressants. I had to try a few, but I ended up taking a high dose of Wellbutrin and Lexapro.

The pills kept me up all night, and I was tired throughout the day. They did help, but it felt very artificial to me, as if I was very aware that it was the pill making me feel better -- not me actually feeling better. If I ever would forget to take my pill, I would have the worst withdrawal symptoms, which usually included getting really dizzy and feeling faint and lightheaded.

I only had the Everyday Oils starter kit, so I started using Valor, Joy, and Peace & Calming once a day.

Then I quit my antidepressant pills cold turkey, which is definitely not advised. I was just sick of them! I expected to have to deal with withdrawal symptoms for at least a week. I kept using the essential oils, and I never saw a single side effect!

I am still using the essential oils for depression. I feel like a completely different person! I now feel like getting up in the morning. I have a totally different outlook -- and without the side effects of traditional depression medication!
