Case Study

Sarah is a 24-year-old woman who presented In a negative state of Fear of Loss. She reported anxiety, panic attacks, and sleep disturbance following treatment at the emergency room for a severe allergic reaction to medication.   The session entailed guiding Sarah in blending 2-3 essential oils that elicited a relaxed feeling upon inhalation.  Of particular interest, Sarah chose Bergamot, Citrus bergonia, and Lavender, Lavendula angustifolia, out of the 18 available oils.  Energetically, Bergamot is known for its relaxing, restorative, and calming properties and Lavender, for reducing anxiety and fear.  Sarah was then taught how to induce a relaxed state using conscious breathing and the mantra, I am Assurance,  paired with the aroma of the blend.  She was directed to practice the exercise in the morning, afternoon, and prior to bedtime.  Two weeks later, she reported no longer experiencing daily generalized anxiety, sleeping a full 8 hours a night, and being able to prevent the occurrence of a panic attack.  Sarah further reported that imagining the scent itself helped her feel relaxed.
