I learned at COBHA that among many oils that can give respiratory relief to asthma and COPD patients, Rose was particularly soothing. I prepared a bowl of hot steamy water for my father to try this. Being physically sensitive as well as emotionally sensitive, we are dealing with his only attachment on earth, his LUNGS, I used one drop. He reluctantly came over to the bowl and remained under the towel tent for an unusually long time. Very quiet. Still more time passed. Eventually, he came out, he smiled to himself peacefully and said, "That's the best I've felt in years." Months later I went to visit and sitting on his shelf amongst many full bottles of oils sat an empty bottle of EVB Rose. Thanks EVB.

I am 15 years old and I spend a lot of my time campaigning tirelessly for animals. Therefore I was delighted to discover that you do not conduct or fund tests on animals. I think this is brilliant and sets a great example for similar companies who should be doing the same. Thank you very much.

I love the essential oils. I use them all the time with my massage business. EVB has the best Lavender and Eucalyptus scents and I'm looking forward to trying others.

I have an advanced auto-immune disease which caused severe ulcerations in my mouth and on my tongue. It has a bad prognosis and is not known to remiss, Steroid treatments worked minimally and I stopped after two. Your Tea Tree oil treatment closed the ulcers within a couple of days and all my mouth lesions disappeared within a week. A week! I had spent 4 painful months with active lesions and dropped too much weight from the difficulty I had eating. I became depressed and felt hopeless. Then I found you. I am so impressed by your standards and the superior quality of product - and an amazing staff that provided service and some education as well. You saved my life. Really. Thank you so much.

Smoking Blend really works as it is calming and reduces the desire to smoke. It is especially good when travelling on a plane or having an extended stay in the hospital. It smells good too!

I started using EVB oils of Lavender and Geranium in my skincare business back in 2007. It was so fun and satisfying to experience the wonderful response from clients. Katie was so encouraging and helpful while I had no prior experience with essential oils beside buying a lavender this or that in various retail stores. It didn't take long to realize the difference in a pure therapeutic oil versus what I had purchased in prior years. Little did I know where this was taking me...
Two weeks after my seventeen year old son collapsed from a brain bleed (March 21, 2010), in a coma, and all sorts of medical trauma following, things looking extremely dire, I called Katie. Her love, compassion and clarity guided me to cup my hands of the Neroli (Orange Blossom) oil (which I already had with me) over my son. His deepest controlled breathing and actually inhaling the Neroli was his first response to stimuli while in his coma...he LOVED IT. The following day I received the Helichrysum oil and continued the breathing therapy with my son, James, regularly. As James started to work his way out of his coma one week later, rehab, another brain surgery, and home July 9, 2010, we continue to experience the healing powers of EVB products. My son is a miracle as said by Children's Hospital medical staff.
I am so thankful for the integrity of EVB company and products as it has changed our lives on so many levels. "Awaken to Healing Fragrance" is a must read.

I had a serious cold which turned into a sinus infection for over 3 weeks. I tried the eucalyptus, thyme and peppermint oils in steam pot and I was better in two days. Now I use them every time I start to feel a cold coming on and they prevent me from getting sick again. Not to mention that the smell of the 3 oils together is wonderful. I even put them in the pot of water on my wood burning stove so the whole house is invigorating.

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for being introduced to your Oregano (Origanum vulgare, from Bulgaria) essential oil. Your marketing agent, Katie, recommended this
product as a topical remedy for a very serious abscess in my mouth and it
worked beyond my wildest expectations, I had immediate relief (literally within minutes) from the excruciating pain and complete relief within three days. My dentist was equally impressed as he felt the only solution was the removal of the tooth. That may still happen but the infection is
completely gone. As a side note, I suspect the healing properties of Oregano may address Candida (or something similar), which I have long felt has been an issue with my health. As I continue to apply Oregano in my mouth I seemed to have gained a quality of physical health that I have not experience in recent memory. Although I was cautioned to not use the oil
without dilution (which I did at first), I did find that I enjoyed the intensity of its non-diluted state. I have heeded Katie’s recommendation not to use it every day but I have been regular with it
(3 to 4 applications per week) and continue to enjoy the health benefits of this phenomenal product. I look forward to seeing more research on the internal use of Oregano oil.

I am a person with Cerebral Palsy who suffers from spasms and general stiffness in my body. I have been using a blend of Clary Sage and Lavender along with a Backache oil to reduce these problems for about ten years. A year ago or so I started to purchase the elements needed for these blends from Elizabeth Van Buren, Inc. I have purchased Lavandula angustifolia, Clary Sage, Jojoba oil, and After Sport Blend. I have found each of these products to be excellent quality. The people who work there are also knowledgeable and helpful. I am grateful for their high standards and fine customer service. – Dana C. – 1/05/10
Thank you so much for all your help. Everyone at your company certainly are very patient and give excellent customer service.

The remedies I used to treat my adult acne ranged from
topical creams to oral medications. Some were prescribed by the dermatologist; others
were purchased over-the-counter.
After spending countless dollars on health insurance co-pays as well as popular
cosmetic brands, I simply gave up. I refused follow-up treatments with the ineffective
dermatologist and threw away a cabinet full of medicine.
I decided I would get regular facials, maybe even a
chemical peel when needed, and stick to a regimen that included a few products.
I learned about Elizabeth Van Buren’s essential oils during an appointment at Nordstrom
Spa. The aesthetician applied your tea tree during my facial, and I purchased a
bottle before leaving.
Over the next few weeks anytime I had a break out, which often consisted of painful,
under-the-skin cystic pimples, I applied tea tree that night. The next day the pimple
This wasn’t my first time using tea tree for its antibacterial properties, but it
is the first time that it worked. I had used unknown brands picked up in the local
natural store as well as tea tree from one of my favorite retailers The Body Shop.
But I saw no improvement.
When purchasing my recent order, I volunteered to write this testimonial. Just
like I told the extremely helpful service representative I don’t know what the differentiating
factor is when it comes to manufacturing oils, but Elizabeth Van Buren oils has
exceeded the norm – Tamera A. –11/13/08
My customers often prefer Elizabeth Van Buren essential
oils to other brands. They are always willing to help and advise me of upcoming
specials which are greatly appreciated – Kathy S.
Most often I use the transition blend directly on the patient’s skin.
I like to use the soles of the feet, the hands, the forehead and the heart
chakra. I will either start with a
foot massage, and mix the blend with lotion, or I may put the blend directly on
the sole of the foot, or acupoint Kidney 1, which is used for grounding.
I have found the frankincense essential oil ivery good for my Acutonic
sessions as it has such a deeply meditative aroma.Last week another nurse
and I visited one of our patients in a hospice home in San Francisco. She was going
to do massage for the patient and I was doing Acutonics.
We decided to do our treatments simultaneously.
She was using massage lotion that she had added transition blend to and I
used the frankincense on my palms prior to starting.
The patient’s room was quite small and we had limited space on only one side
and head of the bed. Amazingly, between
the aromas, the sounds of the tuning forks and Tibetan bowl a sacred space was created. We lost track of time and space and
at the conclusion of the session the patient stated he felt we had all been working
together in a beautiful way. We wholeheartedly
agreed and we ALL felt more relaxed and calm.
She and I floated back to the office knowing we had had quite a spiritual
