I visited my son and his girlfriend while in Dallas attending the Raindrop Training with Dr. Young… In a conversation at dinner, my son, Evan shared with me a sad story of a close friend whose marriage ended because his wife was bi-polar…
I believe the following stories may provide hope to others who may be suffering from depression or bi-polar… Please share…
If you or a loved one are suffering, I pray God blesses and heals you and/or your loved one …
Janice writes: I suffered from depression for a short while with a very stressful job. My doctor gave me a prescription drug for it. I did not want to go that route but had no choice. A few months later, I was introduced to the oils. One of the oils was Peace and Calming for depression. I slowly weaned myself off the depression drug and have been rubbing Peace and Calming on my feet every day. No more depression! Wow, these oils are a miracle!
Dawn writes: I had been taking an anti-depressant (Prozac) for a few years when I was introduced to RutaVaLa oil blend. I began by putting RutaVaLa on the back of my neck (bottom of the brain stem) before bed and taking a capsule of 4 to 5 drops in the morning or whenever I remembered. I did that for a few days and kept taking a little more Prozac out of the capsule and adding a drop or 2 of RutaVaLa. I did this until I had no more Prozac to remove. Now I just take one capsule of RutaVaLa once a week (about 8 to 10 drops) and no more Prozac.
Sheli writes: With the help of many essential oils, I am getting off Prozac. Along with excercise, light therapy and supplements I apply and smell the Young Living oils of Valor, Frankincense, Peace and Calming, etc. I am getting needed oxygen to my brain and cells. I feel blessed!
Nancy writes: I lost both beloved parents within 6 months and credit the following ‘formula’ for helping me out of a deep depression after the first death, and getting me through the second funeral with much more grace and dignity than I would’ve been able to muster without the oils. Put a drop of Valor on your wrist and hold your other wrist against it for a moment (it balances). Put Harmony on all chakra points, and a drop of Joy over your heart. Try this for grief or depression.
Hollie writes: Depression is a battle I fight on a daily basis. I was diagnosed with Bi-polar Disorder. I believe I have had this since I was a child, but was only diagnosed with this as an adult. I don’t like being on prescription drugs because they are not only expensive, but most of them are highly addictive and you never know what side affects you will have as a result of taking them. Since becoming aware of the wonderful benefits of using essential oils, I use Lavender and Peace & Calming essential oils on a daily basis. Then I discovered Joy oil blend which really made a difference! I don’t feel depressed or overwhelmed when I apply this on a daily basis. I apply 1-2 times a day the same as I apply oils for migraines. I love the smell of the Joy – when I breathe it in, it brings me a sense of security.
Artemis writes: If you are on antidepressants and feel drawn to using oils, please be aware there are certain protocols to follow in safely coming off antidepressants. Please ask your medical professional to assist in monitoring you and guiding you in the best way to come off safely.
Jill adds: Dr. Ann Blake Tracy who wrote the book, “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora”, gives recommendations for properly discontinuing anti-depressant drugs. Dr. Tracy recommends Young Living essential oils for discontinuing anti-depressants and for treating and preventing depression.
