These events can be as devastating as a physical attack or injury, a death, a breakup, or a financial crisis. But emotional trauma can also spring from everyday events. And it affects all of us.
As Mark Epstein, M.D., author ofThe Trauma of Everyday Life puts it, “An undercurrent of trauma runs through ordinary life, shot through as it is with the poignancy of impermanence…One way or another, death (and its cousins: old age, illness, accidents, separation and loss) hangs over all of us. Nobody is immune.”1
Dr. Epstein goes further to say that “daily life is filled with endless little traumas. Things break. People hurt our feelings. Ticks carry Lyme disease. Pets die. Friends get sick and even die.”1
Even peak experiences like a unexpected marriage proposal or a sudden career promotion can shock us and be so overwhelming that it can be difficult to come down from an almost manic high.
Whatever it is that throws our world off balance, we all need calm and soothing.
Which is why we created a blend of essential oils called shock/trauma.
The inherent thing about shock and trauma is that we never know when they will strike. Which is why we always keep our shock/trauma blendclose at hand.
Just dispense a couple of drops into your palm, rub your hands together, and deeply inhale the scent. Ahhhh…instant relief!
Some of our clients like to put a drop directly under their nostrils.
Others like to spray it on their face.
You can also diffuse it. Or even bathe in it.
our shock/trauma blend provides natural healing for trauma of all types, whether emotional, physical, or both. its fragrantblend oftherapeutic grade tea tree, melissa, ravensara, marjoram, neroli, immortelle, rose, thyme, st. john's wort, lavender, lemon, laurel leaf, and marjoram essential oils is as comforting as curling up with a favorite blanket on a cold night.
From a client:
This oil is a lifesaver. I've been going through a severe financial crisis; every day there’s anotherthreatening email from a creditor or another piece of income falls through and sends me into shock. So I put a drop or two under my nostrils and keep breathing it in. In fact, I now sniff the blend before I even read my email to protect myself against surprises. And no matter how stressed and scared I am, Shock Trauma totally calms me down. I don’t know what I’d do without this blend, because I can’t just curl up into a ball; I have to function, I have to get through my day. I have to be clear-headed and open-minded to find solutions. Shock Trauma blend makes all that possible. Now I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Plus—and I know this will sound crazy--the bottle I have never runs out. I swear it’s been at the same level in the bottle for at least a year, no matter how much or how often I use it. It’s as if it knows I need it, and it's always there. Thank you for this blend!!
