I just made a trip to Utah to learn more about our oils. Our plane had boarded and I was seated, waiting on the plane to take off. A young woman in the row behind me was on the phone with her mom. The girl was openly weeping and I was very concerned about her. We'd had a somewhat rough flight to Denver from Atlanta, the plane shuddering and jolting a little as we passed through what the mild-mannered pilot called "a bit of weather."
The young lady was alone and frightened. I felt terrible for her. And a little camaraderie, too. Flying is not my favorite thing, either. In fact I found myself, usually a pretty calm person, having somewhat irrational worries and feeling claustrophobic on the flight to Denver. "What if I throw up?" "What if I throw up and can't STOP throwing up?" "What if I go screaming down the aisle?" "What is Death?" "What if the plane is suddenly filled with snakes? And finally ... "In the name of all things holy, WHERE is Samuel L. Jackson when you NEED him??"
Okay, maybe totally irrational. I relied heavily on my oils to get me through that flight.
When she got off the phone with her mom, I leaned over the seat (she was still quietly sniffing) and asked if she was okay. We talked a while and commiserated about the flight. After a while I asked her if she'd ever tried essential oils and gave her a bottle of our Wild Orange. I told her to sniff it from the bottle or put a drop or two in her palms, rub together and breathe it in. She was thrilled and took the bottle, happily.
As we progressed through the final leg of the trip from Denver to Salt Lake City, we'd occasionally hit a rough patch. Several times through the flight I caught a slight whiff of citrus.
As we de-planed in Salt Lake, she was all smiles. I asked her if the Wild Orange helped, although I really already knew the answer. She loved it -- said it really helped a lot and she'll never fly again without Wild Orange.
Wild Orange is one of many oils that are calming. It's our top recommendation, actually. I know people who won't go anywhere without their Wild Orange to help with anxious feelings and even with high stress situations!
Love that. Simple. Effective. Smells good.
