My story begins with my diagnoses of breast cancer at the age of 42. I had a lumpectomy and after some healing time, I was scheduled for 33 radiation treatments completed five days a week. I chose the Farber Center for Radiation Oncology in NYC as they came highly recommended and seemed to offer something more soothing than a typical medical setting. The entire staff was friendly and professional- treatments included comfy bamboo robes, beverages, your own private change room, and even had salt water fish tanks to calm the mind as you waited for your session to begin. The real bonus came after each session ....I saw a nurse who performed holistic cancer therapies, such as reiki, the incorporation of Tibetan singing bowls....and used aromatherapy on me for whatever I needed that day. This was my first experience with the Elequil aromatabs and it was a very positive one. Most days, I continued to go directly to work after my treatment, so I wanted to feel fresh and alert. My nurse would place an orange-peppermint aromatab on me to energize my spirits. On other days, when I was feeling very tired and just needed to go home and rest, I'd choose the lavender-sandalwood aromatab for relaxation. Now that the Elequil aromatics are available to the every day consumer, I intend to use them on myself as well as any clients of mine that cannot use essential oils on themselves directly. I have nothing but glowing things to say of my experience with these products!
