Experiences and Testimonials of others

Net - Hello, I thought someone mentioned the oils to use for hangover and how to apply it. I searched the site and found to use lemon but was unable to locate how and where to apply it. Can someone please suggest what has worked for them. Thanks!

DJG - I seem to recall it was lemon, Rosemary & lavender in a bath. I tried it with no hangover & it was wonderful!

Sharon - Lemon, Grapefruit, Lavender, Rosemary and Sandalwood. 1-2 drops of each in a spoon of FCO. Massage on neck and back.  Just saw this being used the other day in a very severe case that included vomiting and then dry heaving with bile.  Probably the person should have gone and had an IV at the doctors but these oils seemed to help quite well.  Person was able to relax, stop heaving, etc.
