The story that is close to my heart when it comes to Aromatherapy is when my husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June of 2017.
Unlike any other cancer patient, we explored alternatives that pertain to spiritual, mind, and body approaches combined with both medical and holistic treatments. Among treatments involved anointing the sick (a catholic religious sacrament), diet/nutrition, acupuncture, energy medicine, chakra balancing, reiki, craniosacral massage to Aromatherapy to ease his discomfort, and the many side effects of chemotherapy.Aromatherapy proved to offer many healing benefits without additional severe side effects.
Through Aromatherapy, we managed severe side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea/vomiting, pain management, inability to sleep because of the heavy load of chemicals into the body, lack of appetite, neuropathy, increased stress and anxiety levels in the mind and body.
Although my husband passed away eight months later, looking back, he proved his doctors wrong in many ways. Doctors diagnosed him only to live for two months, but we were blessed to overcome three surgeries and still lived for additional six months. Of course, I cannot emphasize enough the power of prayer amid our struggles. The name of our company St. Michael – says it all.
We all know that chemotherapy causes serious havoc to the entire body and the organs. With high volumes of concentrated chemicals running through the body, essential oils were the safest options we found to manage chemo’s caustic effects and significantly improved the quality of life.
Of course, there is a science to Aromatherapy. Essential oils are derived from plants and considered to be all-natural, just like any molecule. The chemical structure of essential oils comprises a wide diversity of different molecules, depending on the plant source. Essential oils are considered anti-oxidant because of their oxygen makeup and contain hundreds of healing properties. The Bible cited using more than 400 essential oils such as Frankincense, Myrrh, Hyssop, and others.
St. Michael & Company’s mission is to spread the word about the healing properties of Aromatherapy and to improve the quality of life of everyday people –one person at a time. How will we do this? By providing expertise, knowledge, and quality aromatherapy products whenever possible.
St. Michael & Company’s vision is to be a global resource and spread the healing benefits of essential oils through Aromatherapy’s everyday personal use. All our essential oil blends and wellness kits are from the U.S.A.
