This is kind of a cool subject and one a reader wrote to me about. This woman had been addicted to pain medication for a long time and knew it was affecting her life in negative ways. It got to the point where she was taking about 8 pills a day and this was obviously not doing her body any good. With the help of friends and family members, she entered a treatment center for 30 days and detoxed the drugs out of her body and brain. She told me she was really nervous to come home because she would be back to her routine and that scared her. What if she relapsed? What if the old habits came back up? About the second week of her being home a neighbor approached her and asked if she would be open for a conversation about natural options for health and healing the spirit. She said yes and this neighbor showed up the next day with a diffuser and a whole bunch of essential oils. As she explained about the oils and how they could help a persons psyche and body by working through topical application and aromatherapy, she set up a diffuser and started to diffuse Frankincense in the air. After awhile this lady, who had suffered for so long and was so uptight and nervous, started feeling like she was calmer and less fidgety… she felt completely relaxed. Long story short, she started to diffuse the oils all the time while she was home and found great relief when she diffused them at night while she slept. She said the details when she was dreaming were almost crystal clear; she could picture everything perfectly and when she woke up she remembered her dreams. While she was an addict she never had dreams at night, so this was really something special. She reached out to me because she wanted me to know that she felt the essential oils had gotten her over the hump of recovery. She no longer felt she would slip back to her addiction and she believed the oils were the reason. Today she looks back on that dark time as her past, never to be in her future again. What a great testimonial and one I am so happy to share on here! ~ The other oils she loves to use are: Wild Orange, Clary Sage, our Grounding blend, the Calming blend, White Fir and Sandalwood. Contact me directly for the name of the company and the oils we share. I can no longer add this information on this blog.
Have a great day! Jana
