I can safely say I am a convert to the powers of essential oils. I am a Dubai based fitness instructor and personal trainer. Using a specific blend of natural base oils and essential oils from Intentions, my post work out self massage has enabled me to continue pain free following intense training. Remaining slightly skeptical I skipped the use of oil usage for 1 evening during a course of intense training and the following day could only operate at a much reduced intensity, as my muscles were still recovering from the previous day's session. Needless to say, the oil continued to be applied as part of my post workout routine. Now converted, I have taken Paul's advice regarding numerous applications for the essential oil blends. This ranges from minor skin irritations like itchy athletes foot through to injury healing following a cycling accident. Gone are the days when I have used oils just to make my room smell nice - the healing aspects of the blended oils has not only changed how I look at recovery and repair of skin, muscles and general body, but I have now extended this in weaker blends to my pet dogs who following surgery I believe have really benefited from gentle massage to scar tissue post op. Obviously using the specific blends of Paul's oils has become second nature and there always seems to be a bottle of lavender close to hand.
