Aroma Life is a blend of essential oils offered by Young Living, and I thought it would be interesting to tell how and why Aroma Life came to be formulated. This is my recollection from Gary Youngs account which he has mentioned many times over the years, but I dont know if it is in writing anywhere.
The story starts in 1989 or 1990 in Kansas where Gary was teaching a class. One of the people in the audience was a very skeptical medical doctor who remarked that all of this was snake oil and of no value. Gary responded by inviting the doctor to bring in his toughest patient the one he was having the most trouble with after class.
The doctor came back with a red-faced, overweight gentleman of 70+ years of age. He could hardly make it up the stairs and was breathing heavily. The doctor said that for twenty years he had been trying to get this patients blood pressure to normalize without success.
Gary took out his case of essential oils and started working on this man. I dont know how he applied them. Im sure he was working on the feet, but Gary never went into detail about application methods in this instance.** Within an hour and a half, the mans blood pressure was normal and it stayed that way for many months.
Gary recorded the oils and proportions of them that he used at the time and that became the blend of "AromaLife." The oils are Cypress, Marjoram, Helichrysum and Ylang Ylang. We have had that blend available since I joined Young Living in 1995.
** The "Essential Oil Desk Reference" (EODR) has a section on High Blood Pressure where AromaLife is applied to the heart, the heart reflex points, and to the neck over the carotid arteries which is said to lower blood pressure within 10-20 minutes. It may be that this was part of what Gary Young did to the man in Kansas, since the technique given in the EODR originated with Gary. The EODR is available at www.RaindropTraining.com, and elsewhere.

So my answer is "Young
Living". I take Omega Blue soft gels, Longevity soft gels and Ningxia
red twice a day we will be eternally grateful to our dear friend Sheralee
for introducing us to Young Living and to Gary and Mary for all their
hard work & dedication to these wonderful products. I now wear Aroma
Life on my heart every day & I havent had any further problems.
Love & best wishes always,
Artemis adds: Thanks
so much Lexi! And the points that Lexi is referring to are as follows:
C. I introduced Aroma Life Essential Oil Blend for a woman with High Blood Pressure yesterday. She used just a few drops on the inside of the crease for her elbow, and on both of her Carotid arteries. She felt her pulse decrease immediately & was amazed at how relaxed she felt right away!
Then, I had her try
a few of the ingredients in Aroma Life individually so she could feel
some of the differences of each oil- Cypress, Marjoram, Ylang Ylang -and
then again what the blend felt like. So fun to help people feel empowered!
D. A friend of mine was looking for additional support in reducing her cholesterol which had reached 253. She was already exercising and watching the foods she was eating.
I suggested that she
try topical application of Aroma Life essential oil blend. She applied
the oils twice a day, usually on the bottom of her feet, the inside of
her arm or on her neck. After 2 months she had a blood test and her cholesterol
was down by 20 points. After another two months it was down by 30 points.
She has been using the oil regularly for a year now and her cholesterol
has been at a steady 180.
My nephew who has several health challenges, was about to eat his lunch when all of a sudden he just stopped talking and sort of froze, not moving at all. I realized something had happened and asked what was wrong.
After several seconds he said that he was having palpitations which he had not had in a long time. I had my oils with me and quickly dropped about 3 drops of Aroma Life in his hand, told him to rub his heart area and smell the oil. He did that and in seconds he made a funny sound. I didn't know how to take that sound, it scared me. So with my eyes wide open and my heart pounding, I waited to hear what happened, he said, 'It just ended, the palpitations just stopped. My beating is back to normal'.
I breathed easier,
I told him that Aroma Life is really good for the heart, also had him
breath and rub Ylang Ylang, which he really liked. I myself have palpitations
at times and am always stocked with Aroma Life and Ylang Ylang. Young
Living Oils are the best. Nothing else comes close.
For several years now I have had BP of 140/78 but noticed a couple of months ago that it had gone up to 160/78. I freaked and read what oils to use in EODR.
Every a.m. I put 2
drops each of Aroma Life and Marjoram on my carotid arteries (both sides
of neck). That immediately brought my BP back down to previous levels
of 140/78 or so. A month ago I did the 5 Day Nutritive Cleanse and ever
since, with no oils, my BP is around 120/68. I am keeping a close eye
on it in case I need to use oils again but so far so good. All of this
with none of the side effects of BP meds!
My husband has struggled with high blood pressure all his life. We have tried many different treatments, with little to no results. I then heard about Aroma Life. I started him on 6-21-06 with the oil. We took his blood pressure before and again after he oiled. It was 154/122, and after it was 152/82. The results came in 5 minutes! So we started oiling 3 times per day. We forgot to do his blood pressure on the 22nd, but on the following days they were:
6-23-06 : 159/94,153/93
In 9 days of oiling
his blood pressure had gone down -20/-52 points! We are going to continue
with the oil, but I am thrilled with the results already! Darlene
In 1985 I was diagnosed with a heart murmur (Mitral Valve Prolapse). For years I have had off and on symptoms of skipped heartbeats, fast heart rate, anxiety, depression, shortness of breath, chest pain, etc. When under stress the symptoms seemed to get worse.
Last year I was at my lowest point with many symptoms and severe depression. I talked to a friend who was currently using the oils for herself and told me to give them a try.
I started with Aroma Life over my heart to help with the skipped beats and heart rate. I put Valor on my feet at night and diffused it during the day to help with my anxiety. Spearmint oil to help with my appetite since I had none because of the depression. Aroma Siez on my back and chest for pain and it also helped with my shortness of breath (possibly muscle related). A drop of Joy oil on my wrists a couple of times a day helped greatly with my depression. I also added Sulfurzyme, Super B & C, plus MegaCal.
A month after I started with the oils my doctor ordered an echocardiagram to see how bad my heart valve had progressed and my tests results came back as a normal heart (no valve regurgitation). That was a couple of weeks before X-mas and it was the best present I could of ever gotten.
A year later I am
doing great and still on my oils and supplements. I just love them and
would never be without them.
I've been on high blood pressure meds for a couple of years now. Even with daily medication, I was averaging 140's over high 80's. About a month ago I started a daily regimen with Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
Every morning I put
2 drops of Marjoram Essential Oil on the bottom of both feet followed
by 2 drops of Aroma Life Essential Oil (which smells like Cypress - so
nice to smell!) My blood pressure has been consistently in the 120's over
70's! So I decided to wean myself off the meds. Didn't take them over
the weekend at all. Just took my blood pressure - after a Monday of work
and what is it? 119/74! Did I hear you say WOW? I also said WOW!
I want to add my own testimonial (David Stewart) in that I occassionally suffer from chest pains in the heart area. When I do, I apply AromaLife Oil directly over the area of the pain and it goes away within minutes. I have also had the same results by simply applying Cypress Oil.
The actions of the
molecules of an essential oil are effected by thoughts and attitudes of
both anointer and receiver, according the laws of quantum physics. Hence,
belief or non-belief in the benefits of essential oils effects their efficacy
in any particular application.
