Testimonies
1. After being on insulin for several years, I normalized my blood sugar by taking PLAGUE DEFENSE 6-10 drops daily internally. I did this for about six months, and then cut back. I also took EUCALYPTUS RADIATA, which my body really likes. The numbness in my feet disappeared and I have no blood sugar issues at all now. I know without a doubt that the oils corrected and healed my body, but I also stay faithful to eating a good diet.

[HEO's Safety Comment: Oral use should only be considered with respect for how concentrated the oils are. HEO does not advocate internal use of essential oils without appropriate knowledge and understanding of how to administer, for what purpose, how much, which essential oils, safety concerns and so on. Kurt Schnaubelt Ph.D. notes that "French aromatherapy literature contains many references to using oils orally." He goes on to note that "generally 1 drop is always enough when ingesting essential oils." A potential toxicity hazard could occur when untrained people use essential oils orally and ingest too much. Keep in mind that while medical doctors or health care practitioners may prescribe essential oils for internal use, they are trained and experienced in the safe application of essential oils.] 

2. I used to have numbers like 170-180, but after taking a few drops of CINNAMON BARK essential oil daily my numbers are typically 120-130. I’ve made no other dietary changes. [See HEO's Safety Comment above on #1.]

3. I believe blood sugar issues are dietary related. Using the oils will help the body deal with the blood sugar “emergency” but ultimately you need to address digestion. Eat a great diet, support digestion (DIGESTION SUPPORT), exercise to aid metabolism and assimilation, and your blood sugar issues should disappear.

4. I was Type 2 diabetic when I started using PLAGUE DEFENSE and EUCALYPTUS RADIATA. DILL helps, but it is too strong to take all the time. All my blood sugar issues are gone.

5. I listened to a tape of an interview with Ann Blake Tracy. She explained that hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is what ultimately leads to depression. She explained that when your blood sugar gets too low during the night, your body wakes you up to keep you from going into a coma. Being awake stimulates your body into making enough glucose to keep you alive. Once you get your blood sugar leveled out and get good quality sleep, the depression goes away. Unfortunately, people run to their MD’s and get on antidepressants, which wreak havoc with sleep patterns and the person turns into a zombie not knowing the difference between being asleep or awake. In some severe cases, the person acts out his/her worst nightmare and sleepwalks through the killing of their family, friends, classmates and/or suicide. Anyway, this is what helped me:
- Before retiring for the night, I’d drink a protein shake. This is a good slow-release source of glucose that kept my glucose above the “coma” level. This alone helped me have a good nights’ sleep.
- If I woke during the night, I’d get up and give myself a good shot of glucose (apple or orange) and go back to bed.
- I take a daily dose of essential fatty acids, which have been linked to improved glucose and insulin control. Also, worthy of noting: the brain is 80% cholesterol and the body manufactures hormones from cholesterol, good fats are good for the heart and joints and help the liver deal with bad fats. I recommend only Udo's Oil Blend, which can be found in most health food stores. Udo Erasmus wrote the book "Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill" which set the standard that all others follow. I add a half-bottle of ENDURANCE essential oil to every bottle. Researchers have shown that the essential oils of clove and thyme dramatically slow fatty acid breakdown and oxidation.
- I eat several small meals daily instead feasting. Several hours after eating, the glucose level gets low, so long spans between meals produces a sort of roller coaster effect. Small meals also helps with metabolism for easier weight control.
- Dense proteins are long-lasting sources of glucose, and some people have had good success with proper food combining. I find the easiest way to get the dense proteins is to add organic eggs, organic chicken and wild salmon to my diet preferably eaten before 3 p.m. when the digestive system shuts down, in which the meat will likely putrefy and further add toxins to the liver.
- Do a colon cleanse and then a liver cleanse at least once a year to keep things running efficiently. A toxic liver may be the source of the imbalance.

6. I test my blood every evening, and when I test high, I put 1 drop of DILL and 1 drop of CORIANDER under my tongue. This always brings the sugar level down.

7. I’ve been taking 8 drops of PLAGUE DEFENSE in a 00 capsule daily, and my blood sugar is now totally regulated.

8. I could hardly wait to tell you about this. As an experiment the other day, I had my brother check his level blood sugar level. It was 360, and he seemed nonchalant about it. I questioned his lack of concern. He told me that no matter what he does, regardless of diet, exercise, meds, etc., it seems to stay near that number constantly. So I put a drop of FENNEL on his finger and told him to put it on his tongue. In ten minutes he took another reading, and it had dropped by 16 points. Then in another 10 minutes he checked it again, and it dropped a total of 20 points. Then we waited for another 20-25 minutes and checked again. In a matter of 40 minutes total, it had dropped by over 100 points!

9. My mother was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes over three years ago. I read up on the essential oils to try and started with Dill, but it just didn’t work for her. Next we tried Fennel, but it didn’t work either. CORIANDER is amazing. All she does is put a drop on the inside of her ankle at bedtime, and her blood sugars are always in the normal range. She’s not at all consistent with her diet either!

10. Four years ago I was told by doctors I had Type 2 Diabetes. That scared me since I watched my father suffer from it before he died. I changed my diet, and between my sugar meter, my diet and the oils, I started liking the readings I was getting and the way I was feeling. I went back to the doctor and was told I did not need medications yet.
My oil routine is:
4 drops of PLAGUE DEFENSE on bottoms of feet each morning
2-4 drops of CORIANDER on my chest
4 drops of diluted CINNAMON BARK & CYPRESS on my stomach

11. My husband has been diagnosed with diabetes and was put on Metformin to help control his blood sugar levels. He has been taking that for about three months and just recently was needing to increase the dose already even though he has been very faithful with daily exercise and major diet changes. He has Hepatitis B and has a compromised liver, so the Metformin was not something he wanted to keep taking. We ordered DAVANA essential oil to see how it would help with regulating his blood sugar levels. He applies it to his feet every morning. After about one week of use, he noticed how his levels were dropping too low while he was exercising, and he knew the only thing that he had done different, was applying Davana. So he stopped taking the Metformin and kept using the Davana every morning, and his levels have stayed in the high 90's or low 100's. As always the oils have come through for us. They are wonderfully amazing! - D.F.

12. Virgin Coconut oil has a substantial effect on blood sugar levels.

13. Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is what ultimately leads to depression. It's as simple as getting the blood sugar leveled out so you get good, quality sleep. Sadly, many MDs prescribe SSRIs (antidepressants) which wreak more havoc with sleep patterns. Antidepressants turn people into zombies who don't know the difference between being asleep or awake. In the most severe cases, the person acts out his/her worst nightmare and sleepwalks through the killing of family, friends, classmates and/or suicide. 

14. For diabetes some have used CINNAMON BARK or LEMONGRASS in a capsule.  They use 5 drops of the essential oil with 2-3 drops of a carrier oil.  Take the capsule with food daily.  Be consistent and allow at least 30 days to see changes.

15. I use HEO’s NEUROPATHY Spray and sometimes add some CINNAMON BARK and WILD ORANGE when I have someone massage my feet. 

16. My brother uses HEO’s LAVENDER for the diabetic sores on his legs with wonderful results. 

17. Both of my husband’s parents use LAVENDER for their Type II Diabetes. Lavender doesn't interfere with their medication.

18. I am Type II Diabetic and use LAVENDER for burns and healing with great results. I had surgery a few months ago and used HELICHRYSUM BLEND, FRANKINCENSE and Lavender on one my incisions for quick healing with minimal scarring. I’d read somewhere online that someone had two incisions. She applied the oils to one of them and not the other as an experiment. The incision where she used the oils healed dramatically faster than the one that didn't get the oils.

19. I've heard many encouraging reports about the GAPS diet healing Type 1 Diabetes. It helped my own leaky gut syndrome, and even though I did it a few years ago, my toxic load is still very low. I'm very impressed by it. - Rachel

20. We discovered that we have food allergies (gluten and eggs were the worst offenders), which caused leaky gut, and then diabetic issues. Removing those foods has healed many things for us. - Amie

21. I am so glad I found your website and read the incredible testimonials for lowering blood sugar. I have used natural supplements and some oils for years and been in pretty good health. In fact, until last year I had not been to a medical Dr. in years. Last year I had a kidney stone and had to have surgery which has snowballed. They put me on high blood pressure meds before they would do surgery, and the medications made my blood sugar go up, so I had to be put on medications for that plus they also put me on an RX for thyroid. Now as a side effect of my blood sugar med, Glumezta, I have chronic diarrhea (several time a day) and an itchy rash covering my upper body. I was so excited to read the testimonials. I ordered Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, Corriander, Fennel and Plague Defense to help lower my blood sugar hoping to be able to get off my meds. Right now it's running about 140 - 150's with medication. I already take cinnamon, chromium, fennel and other supplements which help, but I believe the oils will be more effective.
UPDATE 2 weeks later: I am doing pretty good. Off my meds, using oils and supplements, watching my diet and exercising with about the same average fasting blood sugars as I had when I was on them and NO DIARRHEA!!! I still need to get it down more though, so I'm going to try a new blend adding Geranium, Rosemary ct. verbenone and Thyme ct. linalool. - Lydia

22. I've been using CINNAMON BARK oil internally (2 drops daily) for a year now. It helps me maintain my blood sugar without standard medications. - Tiffaney
