I was impressed with how thorough the report was. Heather didn't miss any details. We had almost an hour long phone call where she further explained the report and gave me insight on the most cost effective ways to implement the plan.

I've been using this every day in the main living area of my house. My son has epilepsy and severe anxiety. The best part is that the scent doesn't bother anyone, and a few people in my home are VERY sensitive to smell. I love having this calming aroma in our home.

About

Seizure-safe aromatherapy with the epilepsy community in mind.

My first experience using essential oils was as a mother searching desperately for anything to help my daughter who had a rare form of epilepsy--and everything that comes with that: poor sleep quality, moodiness, developmental delays, etc. But it wasn't long on my aromatherapy newbie journey before I learned that while essential oils are generally safe, extra caution needs to be used with young children and those with epilepsy. In fact, some very common blends for immune and respiratory support contain essential oils that can lower the seizure threshold (making seizures more likely). And then there are drug interactions--essential oils are not drugs, but even grapefruit juice is known to interact with many prescription drugs. Certain essential oils are known to do the same. Avoiding ingestion of essential oils lowers this risk of interaction, but doesn't eliminate it completely. This began my journey toward formal training as a certified clinical Aromatherapist. I had questions I wasn't finding answers to elsewhere. I didn't want to "throw the baby out with the bathwater" and avoid all essential oils, but I wanted to make sure I was doing it safely. Now, I want to help others to do the same. I will only carry blends in my shop that are free from epileptogenic oils. I also avoid adding oils to my blends that are high in 1,8 cineole, as these oils can be dangerous when used around very young children. As an Aromatherapist, and as a mother to a child with medically refractory epilepsy and autism, essential oil safety is my highest concern.
