My daughter, Jessica, 27, has a degree in Exercise Science, which
means that she's always been involved in the health/fitness/training
world. She has had several experiences, damaging her shoulder, a
knee, and her neck, over the years. In each situation, she used the
Raindrop oils, consistently, every day, on each injury, and they
While on the Young Living cruise, Jessica tripped on a root walking
from one platform to another while doing a zip-lining excursion in
Honduras, and she broke her foot. My son, who was with her at the
time, heard a twig snap as she fell, but it turned out to be a bone
in her foot. The only oil they had with them was a spray bottle I'd
made up for a bug spray which contained water, and lemon and
Purification oils. They sprayed her foot down, right away, which we
believe inhibited internal bleeding and prevented severe bruising.
They had to zip-line her out in a stretcher, and eventually we got
her back to the ship. Marilee Tolen and Barbara Ploe immediately
began to apply oils and Marilee did some Healing Touch.
Since the clinic on the ship used a removable air cast on her foot,
she was able to apply a lot of oils every day. She used not only the
Raindrop oils, but almost every other oil you can think of that we
had on hand. Linda Smith also did a Healing Touch session for her,
which we believe helped immensely. She also took a combination of
valerian (10 drops), vetiver (10 drops), clove (5 drops), and
helichrysum (5 drops), internally in caps, two or three times a day
for pain. It was such an amazing time - Jessica happened to have the
Raindrop oils with her, and I had many other wonderful oils, such as
frankincense, chamomile, lavender, PanAway and helichrysum. Sophie
Ann Aoki shared the internal oils for pain with us, and Young Living
people, all over the ship, heard about the accident, and offered us
all the oils we would need. It was an extraordinary community-based
It has now been 15 days since the accident at she has yet to take one
single dose of the prescription medications for pain given to her at
the clinic. As long as she doesn't hit her foot against something,
she's been pain free. She is also taking BLM every day (stands for Bone, Ligament, and Muscle), 5-6 of these a day.
When she went to an orthopedic surgeon after returning to Colorado,
he, and his nurse, seemed surprised at how well she was doing. Her
foot is barely discolored or swollen.
To be honest, one of the most interesting things that has come out of
this experience is our realization that the oils work so well, people
actually don't believe us. They think, "It must not have been very
damaged," etc. Jessica and I have come to realize that with all
the amazing healings we've seen in the past 13 years of working with
the oils, this has been one of our greatest challenges. We were at
an office store last night, and Jessica was on crutches, and another
lady was there who also broke her foot, falling on ice, about a week
before Jessica had her accident. This woman told Jessica about the
severe pain she's in and all the medications she's on. Jessica told
this lady her story, and asked her if she would like to try some
oils, and the woman said, "No." We were just stunned at her
response. Then, once we were in the car, we realized that the woman
apparently could not understand and believe that Jessica could have
had a similar situation, and that she's pain free, using all natural
oils and supplements.
We feel such gratitude for these oils and products, and that natural
healing is an integral part of our everyday life.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day, and if you haven't put your oils
on yet today, please go do it now.
In Love and Gratitude,
