massage without essential oils, and a third group received aromatherapy massage.

healing modalities focus on the physical, mental, and emotional
struggles faced by the patient.

Aurora Ocampo, BIMC clinical nurse specialist, has observed a noticeable difference in patients and
nurses since the beginning of the pilot program. “Patients have been enthusiastic to try it because
they’re already so uncomfortable. [The oils] really create a healing relationship between nurse and
patient. The nurses get to slow down and spend more time with their patients, so it helps them both relax.”

3rd Largest Hospital: CLEVELAND CLINIC uses YOUNG LIVING products
in their Integrative Therapies program.
"Under the direction of Dr.Toby Cosgrove, a true visionary and President/CEO of The Cleveland Clinic-a $5 billion healthcare system,
we became the first major academic medical center to make patient experience a strategic goal, and the first major healthcare
system to appoint a Chief Experience Officer. We adopted the Planetree philosophy and have branded our own Cleveland Clinic
version, Patients First. Our Patients First program assures world class care that addresses the patient’s physical
comfort as well as their educational, emotional, and spiritual needs. D.J.R., RRT, RM. Co-Chairman, Integrative Therapies,
Cleveland Clinic Healing Services Team
Our Healing Services program is an integral
part of our Patients First program and under the Integrative Therapies umbrella, the Healing Services Team provides Reiki,
massage, guided imagery and aromatherapy to our staff and patients.
We initially began by using essential oils on our medical/surgical floor.
We encouraged and gave financial assistance to the charge nurse to become a certified aromatherapist.
She is now a member of both the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapists and the Alliance of
International Aromatherapists, and has done a wonderful job of clinically integrating essential oils
into our daily practice. In order to insure consistent quality, we use Young Living Oils exclusively.
Most of the oils are used Neat, (undiluted), and others are diluted with extra virgin olive oil depending on
each situation. We also diffuse Young Living Essential Oils at nursing stations, in our PACU, physician’s lounges, and in some offices.
Over the last year, our charge nurse has done several in-services and training sessions throughout the hospital.
Through her tireless efforts she has created solid educational relationships with both our orthopedic and general
surgery doctors, and regularly gets consults on all floors of the hospital. She is currently working to educate
our medical doctors to get them onboard as well.
We regularly treat gout, neuropathy, carpel tunnel, sinusitis, headaches, abdominal pain, kidney stone pain, neuralgia,
tennis elbow, arthritis, back pain, leg cramps, post-op hip and knee pain and whatever else comes our way.
Each patient’s need, including which Young Living Essential Oils were used, is documented in our electronic charting
so we can track their outcomes. We always have a good stock of
peppermint, Peace and Calming,
lemongrass, Thieves and plenty of single oils to make blends for gout.
We have great expectations for the future of our aromatherapy program and hope to train enough folks to cover our Cancer
Care Center and Pain Clinic, and look forward to the day we can do clinical studies on arthritis, post-op nausea, and hypertension.
We would never even entertain the idea of using any other essential oil in our hospital.
Young Living Essential Oils not only provide us with the level of quality we expect,
but they are always consistent in their formulation so we are assured of the best
possible outcomes for our patients.
St. Croix Valley Memorial Hospital in Wisconsin uses essential oils throughout the lobby,
at the nurses’ stations, and the emergency waiting room. Anxiety relieving essential oils are used.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York
They tested the anxiety level of patients going through MRI. Forty-two patients
