How Essential Oils Helped Me Cope With My Traumatic Brain Injury

by Amy Zellmer

A little over four years ago the unexpected happened. I took a fall on a patch of ice, landing on the back of my skull. At the time, I never in a million years expected to still be struggling with the effects of my injuries 18 months later. I was dazed and confused for weeks before I came to realize that I had suffered more than “just a concussion”. I had suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) and was only just beginning to see all of its ugly faces.

Right before my accident, I had started using essential oils, and I have to say that having these oils on hand was the biggest blessing I could have asked for. They helped me cope with my traumatic brain injury, along with the physical injuries I sustained: whiplash, torn muscles, stretched ligaments, and a dislocated sternum and ribcage.
