Experiences and Testimonials of others
A submission directly to
Our thanks to:
Amy - I have been suffering from depression
and anxiety for many years, and have been on medication for
it. I weaned myself off the medication and was doing ok for
a while, but relapsed. I then learned about doTerra, and
have been using the oils to help keep me out of a slump, and
also to calm me when I'm anxious.
I apply the Elevation blend to my chest in the morning most
days. If I'm feeling anxious I'll apply the Serenity blend
to my wrists, and at night to help me sleep I apply the
Lavender to the bottoms of my feet (unless I'm using the
On Guard at the moment too, then I put the On Guard on the
bottoms of my feet and the Lavender on my chest.)
I have had much more stable moods since. If I start to feel
something in the middle of the day, I'll reapply, and I feel
calmer within a few minutes. Otherwise I just do the morning
& evening things. I'm amazed at how well the oils keep me
balanced without any pharmaceuticals.

Monkeez5 - I have a friend who has
experienced anxiety attacks? They have been keeping her up
at night- any suggestions?
Pat - My friend uses Balance and
Lavender and has been able to get her panic/anxiety attacks
completely under control.
Kathy - I have heard that lots of
anxiety oils are in the Whisper blend and Bergamot and
Lavender also Frankincense for strong anxiety attacks used
with the others.
Brooke - I have a friend also who's
whole family has serious anxiety issues. How, and where,
and how often, would you suggest putting the oils -
especially on children?
Kathy - My friends whole family has
serious anxiety issues - I'll ask her what oils and where
and how much they use - I'll get back to you as soon as she
Robert - Peppermint! I have the
same thing... now, as I feel them come on, I put about 3-4
drops on my hands, rub them together then apply with a light
massage over my chest and heart, then cup an inhale the
aroma from my hands for a few minutes. It's
awesome-effective. I have also added a couple drops of
Frankincense to the mixture as well.... very effective for
Pat - I have heard this also. Last night
I had a friend setting next to me at our meeting and she
suffers from extreme panic/anxiety attacks. I had applied
Balance, twice, and then Lavender, and I could tell the way
she kept swinging her foot that I had not hit on the right
oil. Right then Wendy started talking about Frankincense, so
I slipped it out of my container and applied it to the back
of her neck and the bottom of her feet. Within a few minutes
her foot was relaxed and she was feeling better. I so wish
that I would have remembered Whisper.
Thanks Kathy for reminding me about the other oils for
anxiety, you are great.
Kathy - I only know from Christy - I
know her kids take the clay pendants to school but not sure
which oils they use on them.? Some of her kids missed a lot
of school in the previous years as their anxiety has been so
bad and they are all doing great with these oils and their
clay pendants!? I know one uses Peppermint but am waiting
for her to get back to me of the other oils and how much
Brooke - It's so helpful to hear how
people are reacting to different applications!
Debbie - I have massaged BREATHE over my
chest and heart for anxiety with great success.
Kathy - Breathe has Peppermint in it -
that may be why it worked!
Debbie - Peppermint alone works for me
too. I have taken that at night as well to calm down from
the day's events and especially to get my mind to quit!
Peppermint is an interesting oil. It calms you down and
peps you up - does what you need!
What Science & Research are saying
Effects of fragrance inhalation on
sympathetic activity in normal adults.
Japanese journal of pharmacology, November, 2002;
Haze S, Sakai K, Gozu Y.
We investigated the effects of fragrance inhalation on
sympathetic activity in normal adult subjects using both
power spectral analysis of blood pressure fluctuations and
measurement of plasma catecholamine levels. Fragrance
inhalation of essential oils, such as Pepper oil, estragon
oil, Fennel oil or Grapefruit oil, resulted in 1.5- to
2.5-fold increase in relative sympathetic activity,
representing low frequency amplitude of systolic blood
pressure (SBP-LF amplitude), compared with inhalation of an
odorless solvent, triethyl citrate (P<0.05, each). In
contrast, fragrance inhalation of Rose oil or Patchouli oil
caused a 40% decrease in relative sympathetic activity
(P<0.01, each). Fragrance inhalation of Pepper oil induced a
1.7-fold increase in plasma adrenaline concentration
compared with the resting state (P = 0.06), while fragrance
inhalation of Rose oil caused a 30% decrease in adrenaline
concentration (P<0.01). Our results indicate that fragrance
inhalation of essential oils may modulate sympathetic
activity in normal adults.
