    Feature Article...

    How Essential Oils May Help With Pain

    Any kind of pain (emotional and physical) causes disruption to life. The most common pain I see in my practice is back pain.

    Sometimes, people have come with chronic conditions lasting twenty years or more. It is hard for me to imagine a life of pain. I have had great success with relieving pain.

    My treatment usually involves the Raindrop Technique.

    Firstly, a form of ancient Tibetan reflexology is performed on the feet using therapeutic grade essential oils.

    Then therapeutic grade essential oils are dropped on the spine (like raindrops - this is where the name "Raindrop Technique" comes from)and "feathered in" using a Native American Indian massage technique. In most cases around one hundred and forty drops of essential oils are used neat on the body. Of course, a full client history is performed on each person receiving a Raindrop.

    This technique is like no other. Research shows that most essential oils have eighty to three hundred compounds. It is the complexity of these compounds which add to the overall therapeutic action of essential oils.

    One client injured his back in a car accident over six months ago and tried different therapies with little improvement.

    After one Raindrop Technique session he said the "intense pain" had disappeared and was maintained with only a drop or two of oil between visits.

    Another client states “During my Raindrop treatment I felt pampered, the experiences I had during treatment were not similar to those which I have experienced during massage or manual therapy.

    “When I arose from the table after treatment I felt very different to the person I had been when I got on the table. I had a balanced state of mind and spirit.”

    Raindrop Technique seems to work with body, mind and spirit. Because the essential oils easily penetrate and nourish the skin and muscles, the technique works on deep levels of the body without requiring hard pressure or force. You can't get more pampered than this!

    Courses Australia wide and expanding! Next Brisbane course: September 11-13 2009. Contact me for more details.

    Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Blend Of the Month...PALO SANTO


    Palo Santo is a single essential oil, not well known outside of South America. It is native to Ecuador and related to the frankincense tree. Palo Santo means "holy or sacred wood."

    The Essential Oils Desk Reference states that Palo Santo can be used for hypertension, skin conditions (eczema & acne), fluid retention and Listeria infection.


    Use with caution during pregnancy.


    According to Wanda Stellar in The Directory of Essential Oils (Includes More Than 80 Essential Oils) Palo Santo essential oil can possibly relieve nervous tension.

    Palo Santo can be diffused in a room where there are negative energies. It is known as a spiritual oil and has a long tradition where it was used to cleanse and purify the air.

    I put one drop of Palo Santo on any back pain and I have NO PAIN within one to two minutes. Many clients report the same results. I find that I have had fewer acute attacks since using Palo santo.

    Well we have come to the end of this edition of Essential Bliss. I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it...
