BE RELIEVED -  A CALMING BLEND FOR PAIN & INFLAMMATION 100mL is a topical application that is applied to the area where pain is located to help treat pain and inflammation for a variety of conditions including: arthritis, joint inflammation, muscular aches and pains, muscular cramps and spasms, maintenance of peripheral circulation, gout, headaches, menstrual pain, breast tenderness, sprains, soft tissue trauma, low back pain, fibromyalgia, nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety, stress, sciatica and whiplash, nerve pain/mild neuralgia, shingles, rash, dry skin, minor burns (including sunburn), minor wounds (cuts, scratches, abrasions), eczema, dermatitis, sleeplessness, insomnia, sore throat, tonsillitis, enlarged and varicose veins, improvement in well-being.

It is especially beneficial at night when you need a good night's sleep to help with recovery as it contains active ingredients that are sedative in nature.  Aromatherapy is highly effective in pain management because its ingredients are analgesic, anti-inflammatory and have prostaglandin inhibition properties that provide physiological pain relief.

Existing analgesics, recommended and sold OTC, only work on the sensation of pain and not the cause of the pain itself.  BE RELIEVED helps treat the problem thereby allowing the body to self-heal much faster than traditional topical applications. Essential oils also work on the emotions and are also helpful for anxiety, shock and grief.

"I have meant to write to you many times and thank you for giving me and all your other customers such an excellent product. I suffer from arthritis in the facet joint causing at times quite a lot of pain and pinching of the sciatic nerve. Thankfully I can turn to BE Relieved at night and BE Sport during the day, these both help ease the pain. I also have problems with my neck and shoulders as everything at work is up high and being vertically challenged this causes stiffness in the neck and knots in the muscles around my shoulder blades. To help alleviate this problem I have regular massages and have found that by having the massage therapist use my BE Relieved I am not as sore afterwards. I was raving at work a few months ago as to how fantastic your products were, a friend asked me more about them, so being the kind person I am lent her my BE Relieved & Sport, she now has her own supply and like me raves about them too, as she has had major surgery to her foot, with threatened amputation, these 2 blends have helped her immensely. Within the last week I have introduced another family to your wonderful products, starting with, of course, BE Relieved & Sport as their teenage son is experiencing extreme pain from sudden grown, as his father put it, growing too fast. His mother told me today that she has used the samples I gave her to try on him, and although not completely stopped the pain they have, as she put it taken the edge of it, enabling him to sleep at night and get through the day much easier. So another convert to your wonderful products. Thank you very much Cheryl and keep up the good work." Jan K. * Free delivery within Australia

    I am very happy with my BE Relieved as I pushed some furniture around the other day and I know when I do this my back aches and I'm off to the Chiropractor, but this time I immediately rubbed my BE Relieved onto my back, buttock and leg muscles and I didn't have any aches to my amazement. I'm female and 68 years old and I do know better but the job had to get done. Thank you Cheryl for your wonderful oils.

    Quality

    Oh, how I wish I had known about BE RELIVED years ago !!
    I have had a bad muscle spasm in my low back for over 2 years & despite physio, chiropractic, massage & osteopathic treatments I have had no relief. Someone recommended BE RELIEVED & I thought it may help - it most certainly did !! I slept non stop for 13 hours after using it for the 1st time. It's also helped my L knee which is bone on bone, so quite painful and both hips which bother me particularly at night.
    I'm glad I got the roll on bottle as it's quite awkward to get to some of my sore spots & that makes it much easier.
    I am spreading the word !!!! (Posted on 2/07/17)

  4. Sprains Review by Laura

    Hi Cheryl,

    I was thinking of you recently as my partner Pete sprained his ankle and had terrible pain and swelling. I looked up your website and realised that BE Relieved could be used for sprains. He started applying it to his ankle at night before sleeping. It worked miracles at reducing the swelling and bruising in just a few days. I was so amazed.

    So thank you again, and please feel free to use this as a testimonial on your website or elsewhere.

    Best wishes,
    Laura

    HI,

    I HAVE BEEN USING YOUR PRODUCTS FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS, FIRST ORDERED WHEN YOU STARTED ON TVSN.

    THE RELIEF I HAVE EXPERIENCED IS JUST AMAZING!

    ALSO, MY HUSBAND SUFFERS WITH GOUT, AT FIRST HE WASN'T SURE BUT WANTED TO TRY BE RELIEVED, AND HE WAS CONVERTED!

    MY HUSBAND GETS GOUT IN HIS FINGERS, AND BEING A CARPENTER THE GOUT IS VERY PAINFUL,, I SEND HIM OFF TO WORK WITH SOME OF THE BE RELIEVED.

    HE HAS ALSO TRIED THE OIL FOR CELLULITE ON HIS LEFT ANKLE FOR A GOUT ATTACK, HE CAME HOME FROM WORK SAYING "I CAN
    PUT MY SHOE ON" AFTER APPLYING EVERY 15 MINS TODAY!!!

    AS FOR ME I HAVE USED ALL THE OILS FOR MIGRAINE. BE RELIEVED WORKS WONDERS ESPECIALLY AT FIRST SIGN OF A MIGRAINE. WORKS WELL ON MY VARICOSE VEINS, OR I SHOULD SAY REMARKABLY WELL. WORKS GOOD IF I GET AN EARACHE, TOOTHACHE, NEURALGIA.

    RECENTLY I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH POST HEPATIC NEURALGIA, WHAT A RELIEF WITH BE RELIEVED.

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK CHERYL AND STAFF, I WOULD BE LOST WITHOUT SUCH GREAT PRODUCTS.

    THE BEST SELLING ITEM(S) I BELIEVE ARE BE RELIEVED AND BE CALM; TWO WONDERFUL PRODUCTS.

    BE Relieved is a miracle in a bottle, it has so many uses. My go to solution for my complex regional pain syndrome and auto immune disorder.

  11. BE Relieved has helped with my coughing Review by Rochel Morada de Marchi

    Hi Cheryl just letting you know that BE Relieved has come to the rescue once more! I've stopped using the cough mixture as I didn't feel any better taking it. Have been using BE Relieved 2 x daily instead, on chest, back, back of neck, temple and feet. I feel much better since! Cold still hanging around but so much more better. My head cold is gone. I'm not coughing in the middle of the night or early morning which helps a lot as used to wake my light sleeper baby! (Posted on 22/06/16)

  12. The wonderful BE Relieved Review by Anita Cannon

    I have MS and I inject every day and have done for the last 9 years. BE Relieved has kept my injection sites in perfect condition.... and if I accidentally hit a vein the BE Relieved lessens the impact of a pretty nasty bruise.

    When I'm in Melbourne baby sitting my grand babies. If they hurt themselves, out comes my trusty BE Relieved and before I know it their tears have turned to smiles. Thing is... you can't fool little kids. If it doesn't work, they'll soon let you know. Instead my babies ask for my oil.
    Absolutely love and adore your products.... thank you for sharing your life's work. (Posted on 30/04/16)

  13. Possibly related to tinnitus Review by Beryl Davies

    I found another use for the amazing BE Relieved.. I had this most annoying "fluttering " in my ear and when I researched found people had suffered for months and years before it ceased. Possibly related to tinnitus which I also experience. As it disturbed my sleep and daytime I did not want that result. Some BE Relieved in my ear .. and within a few hours it was gone. just love this product.

  15. Arthritis and 'Doggy' Story Review by Kim Hannell

    I have been using your BE Relieved & BE Sport now for approx 12 years after a car accident I had back in 2001 that left me in a lot of pain. I use it these days for my chronic arthritis pain, it is honestly the only thing that gives me any relief so believe me when I tell you I can NOT live without either of these oils.

    I have to tell you I have recently been using BE Calm on my dogs during thunder storms, my dogs are absolutely terrified of the thunder (like most dogs) and my older dog Rebel who is now 10 years old would get so scared at times I thought he was going to die. I now rub the BE Calm on them the minute I know a storm is going to hit and as God is my witness it calms them down during the thunder.

    I have recommended BE Calm to a few of my girlfriends who also have dogs that are terrified of the thunder and it has worked for them also, and like me they will never be with out it, EVER. I had tried everything from thunder shirts to Valium ( on vets recommendation) but nothing worked till BE Calm.

    Thank You Cheryl for creating these amazing oils that have honestly changed my life & my families lives and now my dogs lives for the better. (Posted on 9/03/16)

  16. Chronic Back Pain Relief Instantly Review by Everett
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Hi everyone thought I would just leave a comment regarding how the Be Relieved worked on me. I am 27 years old and have had lower back problems for 3 years now and have had a L4-L5 disk replacement and L5-S1 fusion. The operation took the nerve pain away but after about 8 months after surgery the nerve pain has started to come back so have been trying to figure ways to relieve the pain without having to back on pain meds which I was on 24/7 before the operation. I ordered the Be Relieved after reading all the testimonials as thought it must have some truth to it if so many people are saying that it works. Well to all the sceptics out there it actually does give instant pain relief. My current pain level is extremely high I would say 8/10 so when I applied it directly on to my lower back I didn't get complete pain relief but there was significant relief. Pretty amazing to tell you the truth as I am not one who uses alternative medicines. I would recommend this product to anyone who suffers from chronic lower back pain. Even if you are sceptical such as I was just give it a shot if it doesn't work I am sure who have spent more money on other useless gadgets in your time to try and reduce the pain.

    On a side note my mother also has had a bad shoulder for quite some time now from always carrying a heavy hand bag and from travelling a lot and carrying suitcases. I was curious to see if it was just me or it worked on other injuries to and as soon as she put it on she also felt instant pain relief so its quite incredible to tell you the truth. I am so sceptical about natural remedies as I have always had a perception that they work but can take a very long time of constant use but the BE relieved oil works as quick as any Opioid pain killer if not faster.

    For anyone out there still on the side lines read all the testimonials and reviews as that is what reassured me to go ahead and try this because there has to be truth to it if it is working on so many people. I am just glad I am now one of those people it also works on as I have tried every gadget/trick/medication there is under the sun to help with my pain and this is definitely one of the ones that works.

  18. This had us in tears. Review by Fiona

    Oh I have been meaning to write a letter about the life that Balanced Essentials has given not only me but my whole family. It was around 18 years ago I tuned into TVSN to watch my favourite bear show... But it wasn't to be, instead they were having a long event celebrating a new supplier and Cheryl was there to chat with customers and answer questions.

    I watched thinking maybe this could work... When they started talking about BE Sport and BE Relieved I was more intrigued... You see I had a young child who was born with cerebral palsy and as such had lots of muscle spasms and was about to have major orthopaedic surgery and I was concerned of the amount of medication that would be needed to ease his pain.
    So I took the option to call up and explained this to Cheryl, she was lovely and advised that the BE Sport and BE Relieved would be a great help to him ( as I was only on a pension the send it back if not satisfied option sold me) I placed my order and eagerly awaited the first shipment.

    A few days later I got the blends and straight away started using them on my son. Best was when I gave him a nice long soak in the bath and placed some BE Relieved in the bath with him, he would drift off to a peaceful sleep within an hour of his bath and those nights he would sleep right the way through. Due to his disability I had some lovely ladies who would help me with his care. One would always be there to help on his long bath soak nights and one week she was complaining of pain in her hands... She bathed my son and her hands were in the bath water with him for around 30 minutes. Next morning she called me all excited her pain in her hands was gone... She then wanted me to order some for her next time I ordered in my supplies.

    Well fast forward. Few months and my son went in for her orthopaedic surgery and was in lots of pain and his spasms were out of control. As a solo parent I could only stay in the hospital during the day while his siblings were at school. But the oils always travelled with me and I kept a small amount hidden (didn't want my precious find to be stolen) on the second night after his surgery he was in a lot of pain and this was causing the spasms to go crazy... The poor nurse had given him as much medicine as she could and nothing was helping him. She was seated beside him massaging his poor legs when another mother in the room mention the oils and said there might be some hidden in his bag. The nurse went and found my secret bottle and the mother advised her to use that while massaging his legs... Apart from the room smelling divine (the nurses exact words) my son drifted off to sleep within minutes... She was super excited and called me up to chat about the oils. I explained as much as I could to her and said I had some papers that came with the oils I could bring in for her to look at. Well next day I took in the papers (great idea handing out the information with the oils) and my 'special oils' were the talk of the ward. Parents from other rooms were coming in and asking me about them. Again I explained as much as I could, the lovely ward clerk even made copies of my sheets to help parents out. It became an ‘in joke’ that if I got paid by referrals for the oils I would be able to never pay again for my sons own supplies. After 10 days in the hospital and numerous parents and hospital staff talking to me about the blends my son and I went home, he had next to no pain medication needed by this time.
    I used the blends on off over the years. I went on to explore other blends from Balanced Essentials but always made sure that BE Sport and BE Relieved were always in the house. A few years went by and suddenly I had ran out and tried to order more and went online to TVSN to place an order but they weren't listed. I was worried. I then went looking for the Balanced Essentials website ( I felt I didn't need the money back satisfaction option anymore as I was fully satisfied with the products). I called up to place an order over the phone as I had a question or two as well and I was shocked to find that Cheryl herself answered the phone. While chatting with Cheryl I gave her a brief outline of our experiences with Balanced Essentials and she was so glad of the difference it had made for my son and those around us.
    Sadly in July 2005 the hospital advised me that my son’s time was limited. Again I didn't want him to be full of medications as I wanted his time left to be enjoyable and not drug induced. So out came the oils and I used them on him in his room. I even wiped down his bed with the oils so that the sweet aroma was all around him. The months that the doctors advised turned into years and my son loved every moment of that time as he wasn't drugged up to keep him comfortable, his doctors loved coming and doing home visits as they commented on how relaxed he seemed and how beautiful his room smelt (some would even ask what air freshener I used, I laughed and gave them the web address). My son final lost his battle in August 2009.

    I look back to that first eventful day that I stumbled across Balanced Essentials and I thank my lucky stars it happened. As in my mind it allowed me to give my son a better quality of life and a more pleasant one for the rest of us around him. I used the BE Relieved and BE Calm blends to help myself and my younger children deal with the loss of our precious angel. I am extremely grateful to Cheryl for making such amazing products and helping me to extend my son’s life and lessen his pain in the process.

    So with that I take my hat off and say thank you from the bottom of my heart Cheryl you are truly heaven sent.

    Kind regards, Fiona F.

  19. My unconditional love for this miraculous product. Review by Linda G

    Balanced Essentials is part of my daily life, there are so many stories I could share but this is the most important and the one that started my unconditional love and respect for this truly miraculous product.

    I remember many years ago while visiting my parents a package arrived from TVSN. It was ‘these oils” my mum had been talking about, she had seen them on the home shopping channel and thought she would try them to help with the pain she had been experiencing.

    Earlier that year my mother had been diagnosed with a terminal cancer called multiple myeloma and it was in this year that I decided to leave my career and care for my mother and hopefully in the process try and help heal the great divide that had come between us. I had just turned twenty-eight and thought I could do this for a year or two. For the next five years I would care for my mum as she went through countless rounds of chemotherapy, a very early and experimental stem cell transplant, different forms of experimental medications including the drug thalidomide and much much more. All of these treatments just buying a little more time but at the huge cost to her physically and emotionally.

    “That oil” that arrived in the mail would turn out to be our godsend and a vital part of the healing of not only my mother but also of myself. During my five years as a carer I become pretty good at knowing how to manage different medications, symptoms and side effects. When it came to the Balanced Essentials I was an expert at applying different combinations to help ease both physical and emotional symptoms. We have used all of the Balanced Essentials’ range and they all work on many different levels.

    BE Relieved and BE Sport aided with pain relief, nerve numbness and also helped with pre-hospital anxiety and nerves.

    BE Lite uplifts the mood almost instantly and my mum would put this on just before a doctors visit or a hospital admission. We would share the magic of these oils with many patients and hospital staff over those five years. It also helped with cramps and circulation problems and veins that had been badly damaged.
    BE Aware, BE Calm, and BE Uplifted all do what they say and BE Vital always for the face.

    As I massage my mothers body with these special oils our healing of mother and daughter also began we were no longer strangers but women who had come to love, admire and understand each other. Balanced Essentials always with us, aiding us to both heal on such a deep and profound level. Balanced Essentials was the link that helped connect us.

    When my mother died in 2005 she was at home surrounded by her family and smelling of her favorite Balanced Essentials, BE Lite and BE Relieved. In life and death Balanced Essentials was part of us.

    Recently my eight-year-old niece had said she wished she would have known her Nana. I had shared many stories and photos and now I would share not only her smell but also the healing abilities of Balanced Essentials. So out of my bag I pulled a bottle of BE Lite, yes it travels with me. I massage her legs and her hands as I would do daily for my mum and told her how these oils had been so important to her Nana and to myself. This is the smell of your Nana, this was part of her life and now it is a part of yours. I left the bottle by her bed and felt grateful that a third generation would be linked in this very special way.

    Thank you Balanced Essentials and here’s to the Future.

  20. Who would be without Balanced Essentials? Review by Cathy

    Who would I be without Balanced Essentials? Their exquisite perfumes, enriching
    ingredients, healing properties are part of my daily routine, have become an essential part of me. 'I knew you'd been in the cubicle before me, I could smell you,' my friend and colleague broadcasted across the open plan office after visiting the toilets, 'I mean you always smell divine,' she added quickly.

    I have been stopped in Bunnings by the man stocking shelves, already overflowing with joiners, pipes, brackets; basic plumbing accessories, and he was the type of man you'd expect would look after plumbing and keep the shelves well stocked. Large, gruff, capable, not the type to wax lyrical, yet he suddenly turned took a deep breath and said: 'You smell like a spring morning,' and gave me a smile like one.

    I'm no longer the type of girl that encourages such comments, actually I'm no longer a girl, I'm a grandmother, but I was smothered in BE Sensual because it seemed the perfect antidote to Bunnings. I also use BE Lite every morning and I'm still happy to wear a short skirt. My husband tells me I have lovely legs and although they're not airbrushed, just bristle brushed before applying the oil, they are not bad for someone in her mid fifties.

    BE Vital is my morning slap on the face and decolletage. It knows that the day is for living and quickly brings me to the same point of view. It can be replaced by BE Sensual on weekends, special evenings or occasional trips to Bunnings.

    BE Sport and BE Relieved are shared with my daughter. I prefer BE Relieved for my tight shoulders; the result of computers, work, daughters. She favours BE Sport, but I'm the sort of person that needs to be calmer and she's the sort that sometimes needs a bit of a prod. Her son is like his grandmother, so that brings me to BE Calm. We both love it and so does my daughter who would bath him in it if I let her. The thing is I pay for it. BE Calm has become my dearest friend in those middle of the night hours that never used to exist before menopause. Its' scent is like a reassuring chat.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that your essence has become part of our family; I sometimes wonder, without Balanced Essentials, where we all would be.

    Kind regards, Cathy (Posted on 29/05/15)

  22. I have been using your products for 14 years Review by Faye Smith

    Dear Cheryl, In regards to our chat a few days ago, I would like to start by saying:- I have been using you products for approximately 14 years. I have enjoyed them immensely and would like to add I would not be without them. In fact I always have a full bottle of my favourite product which is BE Relieved in my home. Which now brings me to an experience in which I endured recently with a 9 month old little precious chihuahua puppy Charlie. After coming inside after gardening Charlie was crying and very upset and in extreme pain. After a few minutes I realised he had been bitten by a bee. We removed the sting from his little foot, my first thoughts were …BE Relieved !!! After applying it to his paw within 20 minutes he was very much relieved and after applying one more application he was back to his mischievous self. Thank you Cheryl to you and your amazing products. I would never BE without them. (Posted on 22/05/15)

  23. Your products are a god-send Review by Gwen Lusted

    Dear Cheryl,
    I have been using BE Relieved since before the year 2000 when I lived at Sawtell. A friend recommended it to me when I contracted Ross River Fever from a mosquito bite in 1998.
    I was in severe pain as the complaint was the connective tissue are destroyed and the bones in my knee were rubbing together. I had a knee replacement in 2001 at Royal Prince Alfred hospital in Sydney. I used the BE Relieved before and after the operation and felt no pain and was walking the day after the operation. They told me in the hospital that knee replacements only last 10 years. Now I am 85 in 2015 so it has lasted 15 years and I have no effects from the operation whatsoever, due to the BE Relieved over the first few months after the operation.
    As I live in a retirement village, I have recommended your BE Relieved to several people and often give them my own bottle to try out. My granddaughter also got a shoulder injury and whiplash from a car accident 5 years ago and has used BE Relieved continuously until she had a shoulder operation one year ago. She still uses it whenever she gets a pain from the operation.
    Keep up the good work. Believe me your products are a god-send.

  24. I want to share my mother's experience Review by Liz Nowlan

    Hi Cheryl,
    I have been using your products for years and love every one of them!
    I have to share my mother’s experience with BE Relieved.
    She recently broke her ankle – all tendons were stretched and all bones were broken. She has a plate and was in a wheel chair for quite a while. Once her cast came off I gave her a bottle of BE Relieved and said “use it!!”. She used it alright! Her recovery period was so short, even the surgeon was surprised with how little time it took for her to overcome the pain and be able to walk again! She is so grateful that I put her on to BE Relieved.
    (PS my father had to have a tooth removed last week and he didn’t want to take the drugs provided. I said to Mum “put the BE Relieved on his jaw!” Guess what, total pain relief. )
    I love this product and use it on everything – bites, stings, muscle strains, sore throats, headaches – the list goes on and on. I couldn’t live without this product and have recommended it to all my friends (and family as you can see above) 
    Thank you so much for everything you have done.

  25. Back Pain and Bowel Surgery Review by Marlene H

    I have been using BE Confident Deodorant for some time now and I love it. I also use BE Sport and BE Relieved for back pain etc. Recently I had bowel surgery and had to take very strong medication including Oxynorm, all had side effects so I tried BE Sport & BE Relieved with wonderful results. I was able to reduce some very strong medication and am gradually getting better. The nursing staff were very impressed at the relief I got from BE Sport & BE Relieved. The only difficulty I had was reaching different parts of my body without spilling some product, especially when I was in hospital. I wonder Cheryl if you ever considered roll-on bottles for BE Relieved & BE Sport. Thank you for your dedication and hard work to bring us natural products. (Posted on 22/05/15)

  26. I love your BE Relieved Review by Marisa Signorelli

    Dear Cheryl, I have known you for a long time, watching you on TVSN for years – I love your BE Relieved it helps with mosquito bites – my grandchildren thank you and most of all me, because they just love it. BE Relieved helps with my sore knee and back pain and sometimes stomach pain. I love the smell, not like Deep Heat. I am ordering the BE Hand Cream, dying to try it out (under my eyes are very bad dark circles and I have tried everything and I will let you know if it works, I’m sure it will).Over the years I have used almost all of the oils and the soaps smell so good and last a long time. HAPPY 20TH BIRTHDAY and many years more. (Posted on 22/05/15)

    This product is liquid gold as far as l'm concerned - the anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties are amazing for cramps, pain, general discomfort. The lovely scent is divine too, you can always smell the lavender. Great for headaches, back pain and period pain. Good to put on at night time to calm and promote sleep! (Posted on 17/03/15)

  33. I have used some on my pet galah as well. Review by Jenny Mildon

    Thank you all for all of the relief I have received from your BE Relieved as I have a very badly broken top of right arm and shoulder with 12 broken bits for the surgeon to sow together and plate and pin it so as often as I can I rub a little of the BE Relieved into it. I love it. First of all it was my back many years ago now my arm and shoulder. I have used some on my pet galah as well. Take care and a big THANK YOU. (Posted on 24/06/14)

  34. BE Relieved is a life saver for me Review by Pamela Burn

    Dear all at Balanced Essentials,

    Thanks for your great products. BE Relieved is a ‘life-saver’ for me both for arthritis, damaged nerves and muscles.

    Thank for the new formula deodorant which I received a little while ago. I like both formulas and have not had an itch since using them. I didn’t have a problem with the old one and the colour didn’t perturb me at all as it didn’t transfer to clothing and I liked the perfume.

    Best wishes for continued success. Pamela Burn (Posted on 22/05/14)

  35. A positive touch to so many lives Review by Gloria Devlin

    Dear Cheryl,

    You and your team have brought a positive touch to so many lives with your amazing healing oil blends My sister is desperately trying to lose weight, therefore I am surprising her with the Complete Detox pack to boost fluid loss from her limbs and body, as I know there is nothing else that truly works as effectively as BE Lite.

    Also my son (who was a non-believer of Aromatherapy) is amazed at the difference that BE Relieved and BE Sport has made on his sore muscles after working out with weights.

    My young grand-daughter keeps her “magic oils” in a special cupboard near her bed and the first sign of a sting, bite, knee scrape or tummy pain she calls to her mother “My oils, I need my oils”. My favourite is BE Uplifted, the aroma is divine as well as lifting my spirits every day as I help my dear elderly mother to cope with dementia.

    BE Confident Deodorant, at last a beautiful product that does not irritate my underarm skin and keeps me smelling nice all day.

    Each of your products that I have used over the years has lived up to expectations. I keep spreading the word. Thank you oh so much for Balanced BE Essentials. Lots of love and best wishes to you. (Posted on 18/03/14)

  36. Panacea for all ills Review by Karen Coleman

    I have the most sceptical husband going.......and he was very loathe to try BE Relieved when I suggested it when he was recovering from hand surgery.....however, after a few days he admitted then when he used it the pain was less and he slept better....and now whenever he needs it for anything he helps himself!!!! I also use BE on my dog as he suffers from irritated skin sometimes and it stops him scratching within minutes........panacea for all ills....where would we be without it!

    I am very happy for you to use my comments as a testimonial! I also have bought BE Relieved for my elderly parents who both suffer with arthritis - I have got the whole family on to your wonderful products. HUGE fan of all things BE!!! Keep up the good work
    Cheryl, happy to endorse your products....they work! Have recommended to many people without hesitation.

  39. I was skeptical... Review by Sarah Jane Horner

    The most amazing 'alternative' therapy I have ever experienced. When I first used these 15 years ago, I was skeptical.

    The first I used was BE Relieved and it worked. BE Calm helps my insomnia. All the oils are fantastic, topically and the aromatherapy oils. The BE Lite Cream is the best body lotion I have ever used. Can't wait to stock up. (Posted on 6/12/13)

  41. How BE Relieved helped my dog Review by Tina

    A little while ago, after discovering a lump on a back teat of my dog, the vet said she needed to have the teat and lump cut out. They also recommended speying her, while doing this they found a large ovarian tumour, and removed as much as possible. A few days after coming home she became quite "down", and where the teat had been removed it had a large red patch. I suddenly remembered my BE Relieved! The first time I approached with the bottle she clearly didn't want me touching her.......however the next time (and each time there after) she rolled over to allow me to rub it on the 2 operation sites. The red patch disappeared very quickly, and she became her old self within a few days. After about ten days, I was able to discontinue rubbing the oil on her. I am happy to say the 2 wound sites healed very quickly......thank goodness for BE Relieved! (Posted on 6/11/13)

  42. A very important testimonial Review by Moira McEwan

    I have been meaning to write this very important testimonial for some months, but I am sure you’ll forgive me because life just got in the way.

    I have been a Balanced Essentials devotee since the very first time I saw Cheryl on the Shopping Channel. I had recently been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and was railing against the horrific drug therapies that were being forced upon me. I had to take on some of them, but the pain remained, so when I saw Cheryl explaining her BE Relieved I couldn’t get to the phone fast enough. I received my pack a week later, and I have seriously, never looked back. I use most of the Balanced Essentials range, but my BE Relieved is never far from reach.
    In September 2012, after a routine Mammogram, I was diagnosed with a form of Breast Cancer.

    I decided to have a Mastectomy without reconstruction, and had that done just a few days before Christmas. I took my BE Relieved to the Hospital, and slathered it all over me before the surgery, not only is it a great analgesic for pain, but I find it to be a sensational relaxer too. The Nurses kept coming in and asking what the wonderful aroma was in my room. After the surgery I put BE Relieved all around the bandages, and on the soles of my feet. I felt wonderful! Yes, really! I was off, out of the Hospital within 16 hours. I continued to use my BE Relieved, religiously. I didn’t take a single pain killer after that surgery. I was relaxed and pain free. There were some strange sensations from the surgery, but I was very comfortable. After the bandages were off, I continued to massage the scar with BE Relieved, it kept the skin supple and no adhesions!

    I still use my Balanced Essentials every single day, I’ll never be without it, I even treat myself to the Pure Concentrates in a burner to fragrance my home. There is nothing that comes close to the quality and fragrance of those blends.

    I am now about 7 months Post Surgery, and I feel great. I am getting used to my “New Normal” and enjoying life.

    My belief in the Balanced Essentials range has never changed. It does exactly what it is supposed to do for pain and for comfort, but I think there’s a little bit of magic in it too!

  43. BE Relieved and Shingles Review by Julie Yule

    I have been using your oils for a few years now ,especially the BE Relieved and BE Sport with the few ache and pains that I get from time to time . Then my Mum got sick with Shingles and I was caring for her ,she was so pleased for me to massage the BE Relieved into her legs as the pain was so unbearable. Then unfortunate we had the sad news that my niece has breasts cancer she has just finish her last Chemo session and hopefully all clear . But while going through it all she just couldn't sleep so I gave her some BE Calm which helped her so much,and she was so greatful to her aunty for that one.

    So now if my family have any aches or pains they just ring me and that's why I have no oils left. But I just really wanted to thank you very much Cheryl for your oils they have made a differents to my life and for me to be able to help my family is a great BONUS !!! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  44. Have been suffering bad neck and headaches Review by Dianne Bryant

    I would like to inform you that I was a non-believer in aromatherapy. Since watching TVSN and seeing your products I thought I would give them ago. What a miracle they are. You are to be congratulated. They are the best thing since sliced bread. I have used almost all of them and have stopped using pain tablets. I have been suffering bad neck and headaches for a long time. Just been told arthritis has started.

    Since using BE Relieved and BE Calm I feel much better. I have been watching TVSN to see if any of the BE Uplifted is available. Usually I get the twin pack of BE Calm and BE Uplifted and now I have lots of BE Calm and none of BE Uplifted. Can I buy direct from you or only TVSN? I use the BE Relieved every day and it is wonderful. Please let me now if I can purchase products direct from you as sometimes I miss the programme. Once again you are a miracle worker and keep up the good work.

    Thank you for all your help. Hope to hear from you soon. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  45. Where to come for the relief of their ailments Review by Rhonda Lancaster

    I have recently moved - along with my team to a new office block - and my bottom drawer of essential oils came with me. Everyone in the unit knows where to come for relief of their ailments.

    Yesterday I had an episode of irritable legs. BE Relieved didn't help a great deal but when I got home I used BE Calm which worked a treat and I had a restful night. Thank you for your beautiful oils - They make great special gifts for selected family and friends. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  46. I had gout about 15 years ago Review by Win Wright

    I had Gout about 15 years ago. At that time I was given medication, which I reacted to causing burning to the ends of the nerves in my feet. My feet became swollen and turned a purple colour. I was unable to wear shoes in the summer time. My feet felt they were burning. The doctor said there was no cure for this. I haven’t been able to bend my toes all these years and have had numbness in both big toes.

    I went to my oldest son’s home for Christmas and he suggested I try BE Relieved. After 4 days of applying the oil twice a day the colour came back to normal. I came home after a few days and ordered a bottle of BE Relieved for myself as we were going on holiday to the Gold Coast. I used it for 10 days whilst away. My grandson said after the first week “Your feet have come back to normal colour”. Another improvement is that I can now bend all my toes and have got the feeling back. I can’t say enough about how happy I am with BE Relieved. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  47. The throbbing was relieved Review by Jan Furnivall

    During winter, as I was leaving for work, I dropped a computer keyboard on my big toe. Because my circulation is not particularly good in my fingers and toes in cold weather, I did not feel anything immediately. However, by mid afternoon, the toe was really throbbing. When I took off my shoe to look, I found I could not get it back on again, because the toe was very swollen & turning black under the nail, so I limped around the office in my socks for the rest of the day. I was told by work mates that I would need to see a doctor to have it lanced to let out the blood from under the nail and that I would lose the nail.

    That sounded a bit of a frightening prospect so when I got home, I went straight for the BE Relieved and trickled it onto the nail bed. The throbbing was relieved practically immediately, and by morning the swelling was down and the pressure under the nail relieved. Although it took some time for the bruise to work its way through to the bottom of my foot and through stages of black, blue and yellow, I retained the nail. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  49. Use all the products Review by Lindy Winnell

    We love Cheryl’s BE range and use all the products.

    ‘BE Sport’ & ‘BE Relieved’ have helped my teenage and older sons to relieve basketball injuries. My younger son uses ‘BE Vital’ on his face, it is the only SAFE moisturiser he can tolerate when a dry eczema condition appears on his face. He has just completed year 12 VCE. I love the BE Lite and I love my vapouriser from Cheryl and use it constantly. Thank you for your wonderful products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  51. He thought I was crazy believing in oils Review by Barbara Bollen

    Thanks for your letter and wonderful products. I bought some off TVSN yesterday……..My husband is just recovering from having a Morphine pump inserted after 6 years of (in-operable) severe back pain and to top it off last Tues he collapsed and (refused to go to hospital) has suffered from Angina attacks ever since. On Thursday I rubbed him Top to Toe with BE Relieved and 1 hour later he told me he had never felt so calm and not angry as he had in years and that was like music to my ears and ever since I use BE Calm as a quick relief, soles of feet etc and twice a day he gets a complete massage with BE Relieved. I am not well myself but I manage to massage us both. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  52. BE Relieved is my favourite product Review by Sonia Konopa

    BE Relieved is my favourite product and forms an integral part of my daily exercise routine. At the ripe ‘old’ age of 41, I have advanced osteoarthritis of the lumbar spine and knee joints. I have tried just about every product on the market for pain relief and can say with total honesty that BE Relieved is the only one that brings me long-term relief. I use it daily, both before and after my physical exercise programs. On the odd occasions that I get slack and/or forget to use it, my back soon reminds me.

    As a part – time student of Naturopathy and Energetic Healing, I certainly appreciate the therapeutic benefits of essential oils and crystal therapy. Combining the healing benefits of both modalities is a logical progression and appears to magnify the resultant therapeutic benefit. I use BE Calm regularly during my Reflexology treatments, and all my clients have made positive remarks about it. Ranging from: ‘that smells nice…..what is it?’ to ‘that feels great…….what is it?’ Obviously it impacts on all the senses. As for me…if I’m having a particularly stressful day I dab a bit of BE Calm on the temples…it works a treat!

    Anyway, enough rambling…I would just like to say thank-you for a wonderful range of products that actually work. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  53. I am just so in love with Balanced Essentials Review by Anne-Marie Ebert

    I am just so in love with Balanced Essentials.

    I started out buying the small massage blends and aromatherapy oil set as it was on special and I thought I would give it a go as I have trouble getting started in the morning and going to sleep at night. I am also a Uni student and find it hard to concentrate. Not anymore. The first time I used BE Calm I had the best night’s sleep ever, I had the oil burning in the bedroom, I also rubbed it into pulse points. My partner even commented he had had a sound sleep too.

    I tried BE Uplifted the very next morning and I felt like facing the day ahead not hiding. I used BE Aware while studying and rub the massage blend into pulse points before exams or tests. It was great, it helped me to relax and focus, it is great. Then I was watching TVSN one Monday after being injured playing netball, so I hobbled to the phone and placed the order for BE Relieved. I haven’t looked back since it relieved the pain and reduced the swelling. I use it on everything, insect bites, period pains, and injuries. My partner also uses it all the time too now to relieve the pain of work injuries and stiffness.

    The only bad thing about Balanced Essentials is running out of stock. I can’t live without them. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  54. Cannot live without my BE Relieved Review by Patricia Scott

    I have had an illness for 2 ½ years and have been to over 30 different medical and alternative medicine people and no one can identify the problem properly or offer relief for pain etc. I have unbearable spasms and pain in both legs and feet and great burning on soles of both feet, plus pulsating etc. Once I found BE Essentials (and I thank Cheryl every single day) my days became more bearable. It took me some time to decide to give something else a go, and having Cheryl to explain all about the products was a great advantage.

    Well I now cannot live without my BE Relieved and I really mean cannot be without it. It goes everywhere with me. I have 1 in my handbag, 1 in the bedroom and 1 in the bathroom. It is my lifeline. Sometimes I cannot walk and out comes BE Relieved and after a small time of rest I am up and about (my husband often says ‘how can that possibly always work that quickly’) It REALLY DOES WORK!! BE Relieved is part of my everyday living. BE Calm is another great favourite.

    I am apprehensive when trying to do an activity I have not done for a couple of years, have a drive of the car, walk around a shop etc, as I fear my feet or legs will spasm so before leaving home I use BE Calm and it also REALLY DOES WORK, it settles me and calms the nerves – It’s great.BE Lite – great anti oxidant – great for the tummy (if a bit overweight) and also for irritable bowel.

  55. Balanced Essentials greatly improves my life Review by Maria Landrelli

    I will give you 2 examples of how Balanced Essentials greatly improves my life.

    The first was just this week I sprained my middle finger and unfortunately did not have my BE Relieved with me. I put some Nurofen Gel on it, but by the next morning, it was swollen double the size and I could not bend my finger. I got home that night and immediately put the BE Relieved on my fingers and up the hand. I then put the residual on my temples (as I find the nights I use BE Relieved I sleep better as well). Next morning, I could bend my finger and the swelling had gone down and I was able to type normally. A small purse pack of BE Relieved would be wonderful.

    My other big saviour is BE Aware. I recently attended a 2 day seminar and by the afternoon my head was swimming with information. I put some BE Aware on my temples and within minutes I was awake and able to concentrate. I always carry the small bottle in my briefcase and if I start to wander, out comes the bottle.

    I thank the late night I first heard about BE range on TV1 and have introduced many people since then. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  56. These products are definitely a Godsend Review by Karen Weaver

    I am waiting for a total hip replacement and use BE Relieved for the immense pain to help me get through the night. I do not take painkillers as they do not work for me and so I just live with the constant pain, but when it gets unbearable I put BE Sport or BE Relieved on and within a short space of time my pain returns to constant and not unbearable which to me is pain relief.

    These products are definitely a Godsend to me and I intend taking them with me into the hospital when my turn comes for the operation. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  57. BE Relieved is so good it works in 10 minutes Review by Kathleen Kerehona

    We use BE Relieved so much every one who comes near us with an ailment we rub it on or in. Taawhi and myself use it on back problems we have had for years and my arthritis I don’t know I have anymore. BE Relieved is so good it works in 10 minutes. We do not go anywhere without it. We went to NZ in January 04 and took it with us. Just as well because I hurt my back and doctors could not do anything for me so I rubbed BE Relieved on in the night and again in the morning, by afternoon I was good again. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  58. Suffering severe neck and head pain Review by Christine Teale

    I am very pleased indeed with the Balanced Essentials massage oils, which I have been using for about a year now. My favourite us BE Sport, which seems to help me so much. For the past several years I have been suffering with severe neck and head pain - and dizziness – from a ‘whiplash’ injury, the symptoms of which seemed to be getting worse and worse – until I tried BE Sport and BE Relieved. I am using them exactly as Cheryl and Cherie suggested on the T.V.S.N. segments I watched on Channel 18, Austar. For me, the BE Sport is best for daytime and the BE Relieved for evening. Though if one does run out of one, each is a good substitute for the other, although the BE Relieved doesn’t seem quite as effective.

    I also use, from time to time, BE Vital, BE Inspired and BE Uplifted, which have pleasant fragrances and impart a feeling of well being. While the dizziness still troubles me at times (due to certain movements and positions) I have much more movement now in my neck (although not completely healed) and hardly any pain at all in the neck region. As I am also suffering from osteo-arthritis and osteo-arthrosis of the L 3/4 region of the lumbar spine (diagnosed by x-rays), using the oils on the mid to lower back area twice or three times daily now leaves me practically pain free in that area.

    As my weight is around 12 stones, I am now also applying BE Lite to my frontal midriff, but so far there has been little reduction. Perhaps in due course. I like the idea of the bracelets included with the products, and wear one of mine nearly all the time. Well, I have a good excuse – I want those oils to work! The booklet you included too is very interesting. What I like most of all is that the products are understood to be made out of pure, natural, unadulterated oils from flowers, fruits, grains, nuts and herbs (leaves). Don’t go changing that please, Cheryl, as you can’t do better! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  59. Our favourits are BE Relieved & BE Lite Review by Marisa Montuoro

    You are very welcome to use my comments for your literature or any other mode of advertising. I must say we love your products! I have distributed them through to my family and friends and now they purchase them when they run out. Our favourites are BE Relieved and BE Lite as they provide such wonderful relief to anything that is aching. We do not reach for the Panadol anymore but head straight for the BE Relieved or BE Lite. We also have the BE Calm and the BE Inspired for sinus pain.

    They are just wonderful products and best of all – THEY WORK! I also have the soaps as I know that they are much safer and purer than the other ones on sale at the supermarkets (but the only gripe here is that we wish they were a bit cheaper and just a little more affordable, so for the moment they are a bit of a luxury item but would gladly use them exclusively if they were more affordable). Keep up the good work as you are doing a FABULOUS job. Your products are indeed a blessing. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  62. Keeps my levels of stress at a normal leval Review by Emma Kidd

    We always have a stock of BE Lite, BE Relieved, BE Sport and BE Calm that we use daily in some way or another. BE Lite is my favourite as a multi purpose “all well” type oil.

    I have been unable to shake a flu for about 3 months – but I believe that I would be much worse generally if I was not using BE Lite (the sickness is also caused by circumstances out of my control……..BE Calm works to help me sleep). I do a stressful job and am very sensitive to it – I sometimes put a mixture of BE Calm and BE Relieved on myself before going to work. It doesn’t make me sleepy but keeps my levels of stress at a normal level. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  63. Has not slept through the night Review by Janine Bonello

    One of my neighbours had a car accident many years ago and since has not slept through the night without waking up many times from the pain in her back. I gave her some “BE Relieved” to try, the first night she tried it she slept till 4am which she said she has never done for so many years. She is ecstatic, she has been given so many tablets and other things to try for her back pain and this is the only thing that has worked. She loves the smell of the oil and won’t go to bed before applying the oil. She loves “BE Relieved”.

    My 12 year old son has a friend in his class at school who has never gone on a School Camp because he ‘sleep walks’ every night. He cannot sleep over at any friends place because of his sleep walking so I gave his mum some ‘BE Calm’ to try. I asked her after a couple of weeks if the oil helped him at all and believe it or not the nights she applied the oil to him he slept through the night. Then one night she missed putting the oil on him he ‘slept walk’. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  66. BE Sport and BE Relieved for Osteo Arthritis Review by Ellena O’Connor

    I purchased Balanced Essentials oils from TVSN Jan 2001 BE Sport and BE Relieved for Osteo Arthritis, lower back vertebra and upper shoulder region. Within 10 minutes of applying the pain and depression left. I ceased taking tablets Celebrex etc due to side effects. My G.P. is aware of my using the oils. I’ve shown him the bottles. Both legs developed C.C. Vasculitis. This doctor prescribed tablets Prednisolone, Plaquenil and Somac. From Feb 2002 to Sept I was admitted to hospital from all the side effects!!. My husband Brian wrote informing this doctor my heart condition was more important than side effect for the symptoms. I’m now using various Balanced Essentials oils daily on my legs BE Lite for the swelling, BE Relieved and BE Vital. I’ve collected all the oils using the one required when necessary. BE Inspired for my breathing, BE Uplifted etc. I wear the crystal bracelets. I’ve a collection of the soaps too! I can’t bear to even hear of someone suffering pain etc children, elderly, including animals knowing Balanced Essential oils will relieve them. My family, grandchildren, even our pet dog Troy (sh-ihtzu) know the oils well. Finally I purchased the atomizer now I’m equipted to approach each day using my oils, come what may. Happier with a Balanced control of my life. I thank God for giving you the gift to produce the Balanced Essentials oils. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  67. I have had back and neck problerms Review by Helen Kidston

    I came to your product via TVSN - actually via a 'free gift week' where BE Relieved was amongest the free gifts provided. At the time the gift arrived I had a bad back - I have had back and neck problems continuously for years (so bad that an osteopath said that by my forties - which I have now reached - I could be close to crippled with it if I wasn't careful and didn't reduce stress etc sufficiently) - this particular bad back had just spasmed into being the day before and so I was expecting a good week's worth of pain and probably a trip or two to the osteo to fix it. Naturally I gave BE Relieved a go, and miraculously, within about ten minutes, the pain was gone! I kept applying the oil at regular intervals over the next day or so, only to find the pain did not return. The speed of recovery was unprecedented in my experience. A new Balanced Essentials convert was born!

    After this success I of course purchased more of your range to see how the differing oils would work for me. I now have almost all the various massage oil blends and will not be without them. I have also recommended the oils to friends and given some as gifts that have been much appreciated and which have had dramatic and positive results for those people. I used to be reliant on Mersyndol, Panadol and Naprogesic to deal with different and regular aches and pains. Now I only need to use the latter two if I am away from my home and the oils, and I have not used a Mersyndol for about six months - the time since I first used BE Relieved and found my life transformed so much for the better. I am passionate about the success of your products and that they receive the respect they deserve from so-called traditional medicine circles. I am therefore more than happy to add my voice to that of thousands of others of your loyal BE users. To aid that, perhaps the following summary of my experiences with different oils might be useful in whole or in part for your promotional activities. BE Relieved and BE Sport - these have proven extraordinary pain relievers - far more effective than any medicines or product I had used before. I use BE Sport each morning before exercise and find it not only stops any muscle cramping, spasming or fatigue, but it also seems to have an on-going effect during the day by keeping my muscles flexible and eliminating a daily pain in my neck and shoulders which I had felt resigned to enduring constantly and forever! BE Relieved is lovely to use before bedtime - I sleep better and deeper and any headaches or strains of the day seem to literally melt away with its application.

    Friends who have used BE Relieved have reported similar reduction in chronic neck and back pain, arthritis in the fingers and regular and severe headache BE Lite and BE Lite Lotion - well, the slimming effects really work. My exercise program was doing well at reducing my weight and size on my torso but my thighs stubbornly held to their cherished (it seemed) reserves of fat and fluid.. .not so after BE Lite! I found that these stubborn monoliths reduced by an inch in less than a month of applying the oil and lotion daily, and have since agreed to 'keep up' with the rest of my body in my weight loss regime.

    BE Lite has also dealt instantly and effectively with swelling etc from mosquito bites. BE Vital and BE Sensual - these are lovely for applying to the face and decolletage moisturizers that really smell like heaven. BE Uplifted and BE Calm -I'm at that stage of life where the peri-menopausal stage and/or actual menopause, are lurking just round the corner. Both these oils help with the emotions and sometimes pain associated with that. On those days when my hormones make me cry at the merest hint of sentiment (I joke that I can cry at a Kleenex commercial at such time!) a long bath with BE Uplifted eases the soul better than anything else I know. BE Inspired - in many senses this is my favourite! It helps deepen meditation and calm me down, fixes sinus problems almost instantly - but over and above it all has the most divine smell - I feel revitalized, inspired and light, just by smelling it. The only oil I haven't really used yet is BE Aware but give me time! You must never, ever go out of production! How would I, or any of your other devoted followers cope???

    Congratulations for products of true quality and effectiveness in this increasingly cynical, depersonalized and gimmicky world. I wish you every success in the future - both for your honour in producing such excellent products, and also, selfishly, because your success ensures that I and all other BE users will never find their product stores run dry!

  68. Restlessness of her legs at night Review by Laila Moll

    My 73yr old mother was delighted with BE Relieved as it helped her with her twitching/jumpy legs. For years she has lost a lot of sleep due to the restlessness of her legs at night, to this point no doctors could provide her with any relief – she had to live with it – some nights worse than others.

    Now with BE Relieved it makes it more bearable – and the smell is adorable – an added bonus. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  69. The oils have a calming effect Review by Margaret Rose

    After using BE Relieved, BE Lite & BE Calm for a week my pain has gradually disappeared as long as I keep using it. The oils have a calming effect. I have mercury poisoning and was treated with Vitamin injections for 16 years. As a result I got permanent nerve damage. My doctors said there was no cure for it and I had to learn to live with the pain.

    However I am believing that I shall be healed with these oils. My pain is much better and I can recommend this treatment for anyone who has crippling pain. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  70. Recurring lower back pain Review by Judi O’Hanlon

    I love your products. I use BE Relieved the most, closely followed by BE Calm. I have recurring lower back pain due to slipping on wet steps when I was 17. The pain can be so bad that I have ended up in hospital for 3 days on pethidine injections and very strong pain killers. I find that when I apply BE Relieved I can be up and walking around in 10 minutes from pain so bad that I cannot even walk to the bathroom.

    I also have a knee that can give way at anytime with no warning which is also very painful. I can be up and walking around within 5 minutes after applying BE Relieved. When this happens I also find it is good for relieving muscle cramps as well. I gave my dad a bottle of BE Relieved for Xmas a couple of years ago and he uses it at least 4-5 times a week. He says it helps him to be able to sleep as he has arthritis in his knee + 4 discs at the base of his spine are degenerating. He was not a believer at first and rarely used it. This changed however when he started to feel the benefits. He is now even recommending it to his friends. I still have family members who think it is all in the mind. I don’t care as I prefer to use natural products before going to painkillers and chemicals.

    I use BE Calm to help me relax when I am very stressed and I find it helps greatly and gives me a good night sleep. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  71. I have a condition called RSD Review by Vicki Martin

    Dear Cheryl, Thank you for helping me with your wonderful oils. I have a condition called R.S.D. (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) and was told I would never walk on my affected foot properly again. There is no ‘Medical’ known cure so I turned to BE Relieved which helped heaps and then under your suggestion I used BE Lite. I am so Happy with the results – I can now walk normally and have NO more pain or swelling. I couldn’t go without BE Relieved or BE Lite as they have also helped with my Arthritis and BE Lite has been wonderful for my cellulite. I have all your oils for different uses. Too many to mention.

  72. Carpel Tunnel operation Review by Jill Thurston

    I also have another BE story to add to your no doubt thousands of testimonials.

    Last Friday I had a carpel tunnel operation on my left hand and I have been putting the BE Relieved on ever since. Needless to say I have only had to take one pain tablet, but that is not surprising as I did the same thing 3 years ago when I had my right hand done and of course have had very little pain.

  73. Absolutely adore your essential range Review by Jennifer Luca

    Just a note of Thanks for your B.E. Absolutely adore your essential range. I am one of thousands who have survived the big ‘C’ (Cervical Cancer). I was advised never to use perfumed soaps or bath salts e.g. (Bubble Bath) but I have used your BE Relieved in the bath, I put in the water after I am fully in the bath. Have tried BE Calm also. It is wonderful to just lay back & enjoy, relax and feel so smooth when you finally get out of the bath.

    I hope this little bit can help others (never good to enter water after anything is added) always before. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  74. Recommend your products to anyone Review by Jean Meiers

    I would and do recommend your products to everyone.

    Having moved from Queensland to Victoria last December 2003 imagine my surprise to find no Bowen Therapy for at least 100kms. All this travelling was causing me extreme pain as I already suffer with osteo and arthritis and sciatica and could barely walk without taking masses of pain killers and staying in bed for days.

    Suddenly I was watching BE on TVSN and realised I had already bought some oils but was not aware that by putting them in my bath I could totally relieve my pain and now I put one cap of BE Relieved and one cap of BE Calm and soak in the bath for about 20 mins per day (NO MORE PAIN). The same goes for my 2 little dogs. I rub their backs every night with BE Relieved and they sleep like logs and are a lot happier. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  75. Thank you for keeping me out of pain Review by Elizabeth Duck

    Thank you for keeping me out of pain from cancer. BE Sport, BE Relieved and BE Lite and all the others I could not live without them. My dog has a bad heart. I have him on them too, he can run around again. I love the Bath Wash. We all use it and we don’t leave home without them. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  76. This is yet another thank you Review by Vicki Martin

    This is yet another thank you, for your wonderful products! I recently sent BE Relieved & BE Calm to my other son and his live in partner. I chose these oils because my son plays squash, and was always pulling up sore, but NO MORE, he is amazed at the fast relief he gets when the soreness goes in minutes! The reason I sent BE Calm, was because, he is a self taught artist and has struggled for 10 years to make a living. He is now 31. Hand drawing racing cars is his forte and just recently Ford and Holden saw his work and they are both wanting him to do artwork for them, so suddenly, he is in demand and very busy I am happy to say, but he is also totally stressed out with all the new work, so he told me on one of our phone calls. So BE Calm immediately came to mind.

    He is blown away at how much different BE Calm has changed his life!! He now cruises through his work and it took a little while for him to realize that BE Calm was the reason he is so calm now and can cope with all the new work. So a BIG thank you from him.

    I will just share with you a funny side to BE Calm.....His Girlfriend (who is a real sweetie) told me she was having a very P.M.T. bad tempered day and was arguing with him about everything, so his answer was to walk calmly away and came back with the bottle of BE Calm and said "Here!!! put some of this on, you need it!!!!" She just broke up laughing at the frustration in his voice (in a nice way) and put some on. And yes, you've guessed it, the bad mood went away and a peaceful day was had by all!!!! So they are now both "hooked" on your oils. I sent them both the wonderful pack of BE Lite which should arrive soon.

    Again Cheryl, thank you from me, I have been going through a bad patch with R.S.D. and would not be coping if it weren’t for your oils. I am on at least 6 different ones, as I have found a different oil for each problem. I truly would go into a panic if I could not continue to get access to your wonderful oils. I really mean that, I would not be able to cope with r.s.d. If I didn't have your oils to get me through each day and night, and I KNOW they are keeping depression at bay. It seems to "hover" but because of your oils I can literally feel it being held off. Living with constant pain is depressing, but your oils make it all bearable. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  77. Have enjoyed very much your oils Review by Jane Healey

    am currently watching you on TVSN. I have enjoyed very much your oils that I have been burning in the burner, I also put some oil into the exhaust filter in my upright vac which leaves each room smelling absolutely divine.

    Also, I had my first batch of migraines this time last year...4 in 2 months, I went to the docs and had a cat scan, everything was fine, except that my neck was out (Another prob I had never had, must be the "Old Age" catching up with me ..hahaha)...anyway, panadol didn't help a bit !..after the second migraine, I remembered my "BE Relieved" AND AM CONVINCED that it helped it go away. The first one with Panadol lasted 3-4 hours......the 2nd one, I massaged my neck and temples, and lasted only about 1/2 - 1 hour.......Love your products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  78. I am a huge user of your oils and lotions Review by Kate Muir

    Many years ago I smashed my ankle, they rebuilt it, however over the next few years, the cartilage died and I had the ankle fused when I could no longer walk around at work, and had to use an electric cart to get to my staff in different buildings. I spent 3 months in a wheel chair and 2 months learning to walk again. My skeletal and muscle system was in a terrible mess. Over the last 2 and a half years, I have physio'd, pilateed, and massaged my system back to some sort of health.

    For the last 2 years of that I have used your oils to help. I use BE Relieved on my back for stiffness and damage done when walking badly. I used BE Lite to get rid of the terrible itchy rash that has come on gone since the surgery and after all sorts of protocols, including a grain free diet, the only thing that has helped is BE Lite twice a day, and my masseuse uses the lotion once a week as she pummels me to bits (masseuses have magic fingers, they can find the really sore spot with no trouble and without looking!!) and now the shower lotion. I use BE Sport on sore muscles from the massage and from walking a bit poorly or whatever. I also suffer from Lupus and Sjogren’s Syndrome, so just have aches and pains as a matter of course.

    hanks again for having such a great product, I tell everyone about it. I had a gardener here one day whose back was sore so I rubbed in the BE Relieved. They accused me of witchcraft it worked so quickly and so well. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  79. Natural range that supports the body Review by Sharron Chittick

    I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am to you for creating this unbelievably effective natural range that supports the body – not works against it. I have all the range but I will just tell you about a couple of my favourites and the benefits I have found.

    My dear grandmother, who is a spritely 86, had been having troubling aches and pains in her thighs and knees caused by a degenerative bone disease (but she’s still walking around and driving), but her biggest problem was trying to sleep at night. Her legs would wake her every couple of hours with their aching. I gave her a bottle of BE Relieved and told her to rub it on 2-3 times a day. The very next morning she rang me. She told me she couldn’t believe it but she didn’t wake up until 7am and slept right through the night. She was very grateful and now is on her third bottle of BE Relieved and it made me feel good that I could do something to help my grandmother feel more comfortable. It hasn’t cured her, but it has given her some relief in a natural way.

    The other story I would like to share is about BE Calm. I love this oil! My three year old little boy calls it the ‘good boy’ oil because I rub it on him every day and say that will help him be a good boy (which he is most of the time, I can’t say he’s good all the time or he wouldn’t be a normal three year old boy!) But I really notice the difference in him if I miss putting the oil on for a few days. I also feel that putting it on every day seems to have a cumulative effect as it builds up in the system. My son also had some dermatitis on the bottom half of his legs which was very itchy but if I keep the BE Calm application on every day it seems to keep this at bay also and 98% has gone. I could go on and on but I won’t. But what I will do is not stop using these products!

    P.S. Just one more thing – every morning I use BE Lite and BE Uplifted on myself and I always get comments about how nice I smell which is very nice. I have stopped using perfume now as I smell nice without it! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  80. Regular sufferer of migraines Review by Kath

    I had to write to you to tell you about my experience with BE Relieved yesterday. I am a regular sufferer of migraines so when I noticed the 'flashes' starting up I massaged in some BE Relieved on my neck and forehead. The flashes continued to do their thing, but when they disappeared, I had only the slightest headache where I would normally have a terrible headache and end up taking pandiene forte to get the same outcome. I have also been seeing a chiropractor which helped to sort me out. He said that my spine is so finely tuned with my neck that if any part of my spine goes out then my neck tries to compensate, in turn hindering the circulation of the fluid around my brain!I have been using your products for years now purchasing them through TVSN.

    My favourite has to be BE Lite. In the last year I have gone from a size 18 after having my second daughter down to a size 14! At her first birthday everybody was commenting on how much weight I had lost and how good I looked. I tried on a dress that I had worn for my first daughter's first birthday which was a size 18 and I could just about fit a second person in there with me! I put BE Calm in my daughter's baths at night time. The BE Sensual I use for a facial moisturiser and I have just finished some BE Confident which took a while to get used to but now works very well. My mother-in-law has been converted and now buys various BE products for friends at birthdays and Christmas. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  81. Thankfully I can turn to BE Relieved Review by Jan Klumper

    I have meant to write to you many times and thank you for giving me and all your other customers such an excellent product. I suffer from arthritis in the facet joint causing at times quite a lot of pain and pinching of the sciatic nerve. Thankfully I can turn to BE Relieved at night and BE Sport during the day, these both help ease the pain. I also have problems with my neck and shoulders as everything at work is up high and being vertically challenged this causes stiffness in the neck and knots in the muscles around my shoulder blades.

    To help alleviate this problem I have regular massages and have found that by having the massage therapist use my BE Relieved I am not as sore afterwards. I was raving at work a few months ago as to how fantastic your products were, a friend asked me more about them, so being the kind person I am lent her my BE Relieved & Sport, she now has her own supply and like me raves about them too, as she has had major surgery to her foot, with threatened amputation, these 2 blends have helped her immensely.

    Within the last week I have introduced another family to your wonderful products, starting with, of course, BE Relieved & Sport as their teenage son is experiencing extreme pain from sudden grown, as his father put it, growing too fast. His mother told me today that she has used the samples I gave her to try on him, and although not completely stopped the pain they have, as she put it taken the edge of it, enabling him to sleep at night and get through the day much easier. So another convert to your wonderful products.

    Thank you very much Cheryl and keep up the good work. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  82. Total left knee replacement Review by Tina Skiba

    Having seen you several times with your products on TVSN I purchased 2 bottles of BE Relieved in July 04. Seven years ago I had a total left knee replacement and was booked in for 17/10/04 for a right one so decided to try your product for some pain relief, as I had to give up my strong painkillers prior to surgery. Massaging the legs with the oil certainly helped but what a Godsend BE Relieved proved to be after my knee operation. Not only did my hospital room (and I) smell nice but everyone on the floor with joint replacements came visiting me for a little dabble. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  83. I was wrapped in the product Review by Jodie-Lee Eastment

    Balanced Essentials would have to be a Miracle potion in a bottle.

    As I have Osteoporosis (I’m 35 years old) and my spine is in consistent pain all the time so when I saw you on TVSN I thought I would try it as I’m into all natural remedies and doctors don’t give you anything for pain relief. About 1-2 days of you sending me the sample of BE Relieved I was convinced it would work, the pain eased with 50% that day, I was wrapped in the product.

    I gave some to my mum who has Arthritis in her back, hip and knee. She had immediate reaction which is fantastic. Now after talking to you I also use BE Lite and BE Calm which I find extremely effective for fluid retention and bloated belly. I use BE Calm as a moisture oil on my face instead of Clarins oils and the body moisturiser on my face. Also instead of expensive beauty creams and the soap bars are beauty. Also the Perfume oil sample is gorgeous. I just don’t know what I would have done without this. Never go out of business. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  84. Your products have changed our lives Review by Mary-Rose Wigan

    This is a first for me, I have been using your products for several years, and now I feel compelled to write to you. Your products have changed our lives. I have four children, and each one is unique and special in their own way. But they all are the same when it comes to pain relief, they all ask for the BE Relieved every time. Not panadol or dencorub or other pharmaceutical products. My husband has a good chuckle when they come to me asking for that miracle stuff. My husband is a builder, and I rub his back with it every night. Being a mother of four, my life is full of stress (my third child also has Down Syndrome), so the BE Calm is my relief. Just recently I bought the vapouriser, how delicious is that aroma.

    Thank-you for your amazing products, please don’t ever change the way you do business, your calm approach compels people to buy your products. I will continue to them for as long as you offer them. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  85. To say she was impressed is an understatement Review by Penny Elverd

    Hello I have been using your massage oils for some time now with wonderful results, thank you so much. I bought my mother several packs for Christmas and she is overwhelmed with their effectiveness. She has suffered from cellulitis in her leg for years and has always needed antibiotics to affect any relief, well, her doctor was away and remembering that I had told her Be Lite may help her legs, she massaged some in and within minutes, yes minutes she felt relief and her leg reduced to half its swollen size.

    To say she was impressed is an understatement and now is using BE Sport for her knee, BE Relieved for her shoulder and your oils are now the first thing she reaches for. Ok the main reason for this message is to ask if its possible to send your oils to the UK as Mum has been telling her sister how wonderful your oils are and she would very much like to try them.

    PS I have to tell you, even my very old-fashioned bush bloke husband loves to have me massage BE Relieved on his arthritic neck, this causes him constant headaches and BE Relieved is the best relief he can find. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  86. They really do what they say they will Review by Sue Sandford

    I have bought just about all your products that have been presented on TVSN in the past six months and I have found them all fantastic. They really do what you say they will. I used to be such a sceptic about aromatherapy but now thanks to you I am a convert. I tried BE Relieved first not believing for a moment it would help but I got almost instant relief. BE Calm and BE Relieved would have to be my favourite and I have bought them for family and friends and they now share my enthusiasm for your wonderful products.

    I always make sure I have plenty of reserves of these two fantastic products in my cupboard. I could not cope without them even for one day and as I often seem to be giving them to others to try I first make sure there is enough left for me.

    Thank you for your wonderful, wonderful products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  87. People need to know the wonderful benefits of using nature's gifts Review by Robyn J Hill

    Thank you for delivering my Balanced Essential products so promptly and for your wise advice about the use of the oils near the eye area. I certainly listened to you and thank you for your kind advice. I’m including just a few things that we used the Balanced Essential oils on:-

    · Cows, calves and bulls (about 400 head in herd of Hereford cattle) – BE Lavender, BE Relieved, BE Lite, BE Ylang Ylang and BE Lemon.Uses:-
    · Mastitis – a fantastic result – with the cows quarters being saved (BE Relieved for the terrible pain, also had veterinary injection, 40ml Alamycin 3 days, BE Lite to move the clots and stimulate circulation and get the cows eating and feeling easier. Quite often cows will lose a quarter – will dry up.
    · Horses – any cuts, swellings, splints in legs, colic (BE Calm) – backrubs (after hard work).
    Used:- BE Lavender, BE Relieved and BE Calm.
    · Dogs – arthritis on back leg joint (used BE Relieved)
    · Calf – broken leg (BE Relieved)
    · Cow – oedema (BE Ylang Ylang, BE Relieved and BE Calm) Digressing a moment!!
    I’ve also had marvellous results with the use of garlic – I chop the bulbs into smallish pieces (increase the surface area) and put water onto them. Fill a large glass jar and let sit for as long as you like. Strain off the pulp before use. I use the garlic water solution to save:
    · Cow with uncontrollable scour (vet products didn’t work) last chance I tired drenching with beer bottle of garlic for five days - it worked.
    · Calf with pneumonia – quick fix before I could get to the vet – the vet actually said it was great as it would be absorbed straight into the calf’s system. No vet intervention needed – nature had provided the best sulphur treatment.

    I personally have found the BE range great for menopause – I have had no mood swings, sleepless nights etc since a routine of BE Lite lotion daily, BE Uplifted in the air of our house. Also the added result of no flu for five years….. it’s the only different thing I’ve done. I use products topically – in vapourizer, in bath. I recently tried BE Aware – wow – another amazing story. I needed to stay on the ball at a meeting concerning my Father’s estate (it’s been a long, stressfull experience – 2 years) and so I put BE Aware on a cotton hanky down my cleavage – all through the two hour meeting I smelt and felt with such clarity – I will not be without this fantastic oil, especially when in a situation of pressure and uncertainty.

    I refer to Cheryl’s letter about the future of her company. I hope she keeps the controlling interest as her ethics and caring approach may be compromised if money making entities get control of her company. Big is not necessarily better. I think of Cheryl not only as the owner, creator of BE but as an educator… people need to know the wonderful benefits of using nature’s gifts. Our health system would be a lot healthier if people took responsibility for their own health (mental and physical) and instead of clogging the system with bullshit things they applied to their own devices and healed their own bodies with gentle, environmentally friendly products. The possibilities for this form of healing seems to be endless and all in the comfort of your own home….no visiting doctor waiting rooms etc. The smell of these places make my blood pressure rise – it’s so sterile. As a farmer smell is such an integral part of everyday so that sense is highly developed. BE opens doors – in every sense – mind, body and soul. I would be very happy to invest money in your company if you ever went public because I totally believe it is the way to go….to health and happiness. I hope Balanced Essentials will continue and with Cheryl’s guidance and creativity be a world beater….because in my mind it is now. Well done BE, people do enjoy and appreciate all you do.

  88. How can I say Thank You enough? Review by Annette Cole

    How can I say "thank you" enough? Last night I was in the worst pain that I had ever experienced in my life!! I have an occasional back problem and had been to the Chiropractor a week ago (Friday) and was on the mend, then on Saturday I received my fluvax. I then spent Saturday afternoon vomiting.

    On Sunday I was still feeling a tad sick and obviously flat and feeling a bit achy etc so I rested on the lounge. (By the way, I had applied BE Lite for my glands - which is another major life saver as I had my tonsils removed many years ago as an adult and hence whenever I get sick up come the glands and until BE Lite all I could do was rest and keep the glands warm and be miserable for sometime!). When I went to get up to get tea I felt a slight twinge in my right hip I managed to walk around and do a couple of things but then suddenly the pain became so bad that I was unable to pick up a glass off the tea table. I could not even bend slightly to put a cup of tea down in the lounge on the fire for my mother! Even sitting down was an enormous effort filled with extreme pain.

    I put BE Relieved on and lay down on the lounge again, however, I was still in great pain. When I tried to get up some time later to go to the bathroom to get the BE Relieved I found that I could not even sit up let alone get off the lounge! After many attempts and with much pain I finally managed this task! This frightened my enormously!!! - I had never been in this much pain before!!! I realised I was in great trouble and that I would have to go back to the chiropractor the next day but not knowing if I could even drive to work and was upset because I am a mad keen racing fan and have my ticket to the Clipsal race here in Adelaide this week and it appeared that I may not be able to go!

    As I knew I could not get up if I lay down I decided to spend the night sitting up in a chair in the lounge and watch TVSN! So there I sat, with my trusty bottle of BE Relieved beside me! I kept on applying it on my pulse points in my wrists every 5 minutes or so for about three or four hours as I could feel the gradual reduction in the pain! At first I found it hard to even reach for the bottle on the table beside me, however, after an hour had passed I was able to move more freely in the chair and I could feel my body regaining its strength, and the pain gradually diminishing.

    When I fell asleep around 3:30 all I could feel was a small twinge. When I woke up at 6:00 I was able to get out of the chair easily, however, all still with the twinge. I was also able to do all my morning routines without the pain reoccurring. I could even bend down and pick up my two "babies" (Chihuahua's - named Kia and Chi Chi) and put them on the bed with my mother! I am able to walk much more freely as well! So, here I am at work, albeit a little late, and not worrying about going to the chiropractor. I have my trusty bottle beside me on my desk and I am applying it frequently! The pain is not worsening, it is still diminishing (the "twinge" is getting smaller by the hour), I am able to work and even concentrate when my boss rang with some urgent dictation from Queensland. What a difference in a few short hours!

    You are such a gem! If you hadn't created these wonderful products I simply don't know how I would have coped! In future I am going to place a small bottle of BE Relieved in strategic and readily accessible places around the house. I always have some at work but I am going to ensure that I always have some with me in my handbag at all times. (Whenever I go to the footy or my motor racing I always ensure that I have it with me even though at the motor racing glass is not allowed I point it out to the security guys and tell them what it is - if they won't let me through with it then fine - I just won't go in even though I love my motor racing I and love Balanced Essentials more!) Also I don't take antihistamines anymore - I use BE Inspired for this purpose too!

    THANK YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH!!! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  89. I suffer from Diabeties and Gout Review by Bernadette Stewart

    Never have I wanted to praise such a very humble hero! That’s what you are for those of us in pain. My wish is that ALL Diabetics and people who suffer from Gout, hear this testimonial. I suffer from both and until now I have suffered many sleepless nights – sticking my poor feet into freezing cold water to gain relief.

    Until now BE Relieved is nothing short of miraculous. After seeing it on TVSN, as soon as it arrived I tried it on my feet – within minutes – No pain!! I also suffer with a chronic, incurable disease which requires Morphine. However helpful the Morphine is to my condition – it never helped my poor painful feet. BE Relieved did! My Cry: PLEASE – ALL DIABETICS get BE Relieved and keep your feet pain free and healthy. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  90. Biddy's story Review by Kylie Roberts

    Biddy’s Story Around the 20th May, Biddy turned up with a weeping and injured eye. I took him to one of the local specialist horse vets who prescribed a course of antibiotics and 3 days worth of anti-inflammatory paste. I returned to the vet 3 days later for a check-up. There was still damage to the eyeball but I felt it was getting better. The eye looked as though the cornea was swollen, but I don’t think ruptured at that stage. I then had to go away so I left the horses with my neighbours who continued the antibiotic treatment. When I got back the eye didn’t look infected though it seemed very itchy. It looked OK until about the end of July.

    The eye and surround was swollen and the eye was shut most of the time. Biddy was not a happy boy. His coat was also dull. During my visit with you on the 1st August, we spoke about what could be done to help Biddy’s eye. At your suggestion I took a bottle of BE Lite and BE Relieved and let Biddy sniff each one to make a choice. (Over the years the horses and I have a code – standing still when asked a question e.g. Do you want your rugs on? Means yes. Moving away means NO.) Biddy chose BE Lite. So started wiping the oil around the injured eye, at least an inch away from the eye to avoid irritation should I get some oil in it. I did this once a day when feeding the boys. Within the week the eye area swelled and pus and other rubbish weeped freely. His eye was still shut. After about a week I gave Biddy the choice of oils again. He stepped away for BE Relieved, but stood for BE Lite. I decided to combine them ( as you suggested to try.) Biddy stood with his nose in the cup I mixed the oils in. I then used a combination of the 2 oils till 30th August. During this time, more pus and gunge has wept from the eye. Some days he would have his eye half open., then have it closed for the next 3-4 days.

    Over the same time the hair around the eye where I gad been wiping the oils fell out and skin layers peeled away. I had been wiping excess oil off my hands onto his foreleg – this area did not lose any hair. So I am assuming the hair loss was associated with infection and toxin release. Where the hair fell out was very hot touch. Bid did'nt lose his appetite at all. I had been supplementing his feed with seaweed meal, ascorbic acid, garlic, dolomite and more recently garlic powder (don’t ask for quantities.) But I had been doing this since the original accident.

    Yesterday I offered biddy BE Calm – which he likes, but again he moved away when offered BE Relieved (hurried away like I was going to do something nasty like ride him!) He was very happy with the combination of these 2 oils. (When I checked last night, I realised I had muddle which oil he liked – never mind he probably needs Calm and Relieved instead Calm and BE Lite!). Also his eye is more than half open. The eyeball is cloudy but not cloudy and blue. He still has some inflammation around inside the lower rim and some puffiness, but I suspect he can see out of the eye. And he is a happy horse again. I have also started using BE Relieved on the other horse as I think he has a foot abscess, so we’ll see how that goes. We still have a way to go but I am very pleased about how the oils have made a difference. I haven’t been convinced till now that aromatherapy and essential oils could be so influential.

  91. BE Relieved is my best friend Review by Christina Kalathas

    I just wanted to let you know how much I love your products. They have worked so well for me - people comment what a different person I am when I'm not using them. I have always believed in power of aromatherapy / crystals (I was known by many as the Hippie Chick) and now most people I know do too thanks to Balanced Essentials. I promote your products all the time to everyone who asks.

    Since using your products I no longer have suffered from any "Girly" problems (i.e. period pain, endometriosis, Cystic ovaries etc), muscular aches and pains. And when the neck injury I suffered a few years ago flares up - BE Relieved is my best friend. I no longer have to use the anti flam tablets. I'm slowly converting my mother into a believer. All my friends know what to buy me for Christmas & Birthdays so I have a constant supply.

    Thank you so much for your products and giving me my life back which is pain free. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  92. Massaged my wrist and my bruises Review by Helen Holmes

    I have to tell you the amazing results I have obtained - yet AGAIN - from this marvellous product. I had a bad fall last week, which left me with a badly-sprained wrist and severe bruising. Remembering Cheryl's horse-riding accident, I applied BE Relieved as soon as I got myself home, and massaged my wrist and my bruises. I re-applied regularly for the next few days. The result was faster healing and pain relief than I had thought possible.

    Thank you AGAIN for your wonderful products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  93. It is a must in our house Review by Delores Booth

    I would like you to know how much my daughter and I think of your products.

    No 1 on our list is BE Relieved, it is a must in our house, it’s wonders never cease, from restless legs to reduction in inflammation, from ears (due mainly to hearing aids) and tooth ache (massaging gently around the area.)

    No 2 BE Lite for the Australian wasp sting, almost instant relief. Two massage oils (BE Sensual and BE Vital) marvellous for the face. Your boxes of soap are much appreciated for friends and family, as Christmas and Birthday gifts.

    Thank you once again for all your products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  94. They ask for the Review by Kath Boonham

    I wrote to you about my wonderful experience with BE Lite and BE Relieved a while back after I had fallen over and hurt my ring finger. I’m sure you probably wouldn’t remember me but my family hasn’t forgotten you or your wonderful products. If my daughters fall over and hurt themselves they ask for the “magic oil” to make wherever they hurt feel better (BE Relieved).

    The other use that I have found is the BE Uplifted for ants. I remember at least a year or two ago watching a show on TVSN and it was suggested to wipe the kitchen benches down with BE Uplifted for its anti-bacterial properties.. well it also keeps the ants away! I’m guessing it is the citrus essential oils in it but it works a treat!!! With all the rain that Sydney has finally been having, and my 2 and 5 year old daughters leaving crumbs etc. around the house it has been an invitation for the ants to take over our house – well not any more. I wiped down the benches last night and when I woke up this morning, they were walking around the walls where I hadn’t wiped. No prizes for guessing what I did next! I only used a drop or two (of the pure essential oil blend – not the massage) on a sponge and it works so well. I guess it is like a type of surface spray but without all of the chemicals. I’m loving’ it! Last time you asked me to sign my testimonial. If my permission written on this is enough, then don’t worry about me having to sign it, just let EVERYONE know about how great your products are! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  95. I no longer take any pain medication Review by Kerrie June Weymouth

    As I mentioned to you in our phone conversation, I have nearly all your products and started purchasing them when I saw a show on TVSN after we got Austar connected in June 2004 and I have been buying madly ever since. The ones I used the most are the BE Relieved, BE Sport and BE Calm Massage Blends. As I mentioned above, I use the BE Sport (during the day) & BE Relieved & BE Calm (at night) for my back problems and extremely bad period pain & now ovulation pains & just recently migraines associated with the beginning of my period (a couple of days before and the first few days of it).

    I am only 38 1/2 years old and after having three children and suffering extremely bad period pains when I first started menstruating as a girl and still now they don't seem to ease up and now suffering these "other lovely" women's problems just isn't fair because no matter what happens, as being a stay at home Mum, I still have all the other daily things to do that don't stop just because I am not feeling well, but thankyou to you I no longer take any pain medication (Nurofen Tablets prior to discovering Balanced Essentials). I used to take at least 6 tablets during the day for all the above complaints when they were occurring and in addition to the tablets for period pain, I also had to use a heat pack, now I don't take ANY, as I get into my BE Sport during the day on my stomach and back for both the period, ovulation and back pains (on your recommendation on one of the TVSN shows to use relief on both back and front). BE Relieved across the forehead & massaged at the side at the eyebrows in a circular motion during the day and adding BE Calm of a night time is brilliant.

    By no means, when all or some of these pains are really bad do the Balanced Essential Massage Oils get rid of the problem completely but they do an enormous amount to dull the pains, so that every day chores and living can be continued. When the pain is not enough to double me over, the oils get rid of the pains completely, after massaging them in every few hours continuously. The funny thing I noticed when I started using these for pain relief, it was the lack of tablets I needed to buy the next payday that then triggered the thought that they really did work. You notice pain when it is there but because I am normally so busy, I didn't notice that I wasn't suffering with as much pain, or the pain had gone completely and then that is when I knew, whether I believed in the power of aromatherapy oils or not, the proof is in the using and buying them from TVSN and the 30 day guarantee, guarantees that they work or your money back, but you don't need to worry about that.

    I also have your vapouriser and use it a little with your Pure Essential Oils (only because I forget to put stuff in it) but mainly get me and my family's benefits from the massage blends and the beautiful new body washes. I use BE Vital Massage Oil as a general moisturiser on my very dry face and neck, morning and night; the new BE Vital Body Wash to now wash my face & neck area in the shower and if I have time, the rest of my body; but before that & when I'm not using the BE Vital Body Wash, I use all the BE Lite products-bodywash, massage & lotion (unfortunately, I am pushed for time in the shower, so I don't use these often enough, as some weight loss would help, but find combining both massage oil & lotion in my hand saves time - another tip I picked up off one of the shows); BE Sensual Massage Blend for a perfume, skin moisturiser and as a very luxurious body massage, but we won't go into that; the new BE Uplifted Body Wash works well for my sometimes excessive perspiration and just for getting rid of that "smell" and feeling clean for a while.

    I haven't converted my son and husband yet, but it will only be a matter of time. My daughters (8 & 5 years old) use and I use on them the massage blends for any ailments that they may have. My toilet bag is very large & I always take nearly all of them with me when I travel. I mustn't forget TVSN. If it wasn't for them stocking these beautiful products, we would not have been introduced to the life we are now currently living. The helpful hints provided by yourself and the presenters is brilliant too. I honestly can't remember what life was like before Balanced Essentials and hope we don't ever have to go without. The aromas, the benefits and the general wellbeing which I have never had before in my entire life, is all due to you and your beautiful combination of blends which make it so easy and time saving in today's world we live in.

    So in conclusion, I am very passionate about "my" Balanced Essentials and thank god for Cheryl Gilbert !!!! (Who would ever think I would be so emotional about aromatherapy and I am crying writing this, crying with joy). I hope I haven't waffled on too much, but wanted to convey how much you and your range have helped us.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  96. BE Relieved and BE Lite are my lifesavers Review by Val Johnson

    I love your products and always buy up big at TVSN. Its been quite a while since I purchased any and am now getting low on my BE Relieved. This and BE Lite are my life savers.

    Being postmenopausal I cannot tell you what a gem BE Lite is. It sooths my crampy stomach and calms my irritability. Of course it’s so terrific for bloating too. BE Relieved does wonders for my aching back and stomach too. I have problems with painful heels and just a rub a few times a day keeps be going and gives me lightness of foot as well as putting a smile on my face. I have the occasional migraine and find if I massage BE Relieved all over the top of my head and around the temples the migraine is not as severe. I also massage BE Calm on the back of my neck, this helps with the migraine too.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful products without them I would be popping several paracetamol to cope with it all. Take care. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  97. Within minutes the pain is gone Review by Gail Lorraine McDermott

    Just a few lines to praise your wonderful oils. I had a laminectomy 10 years ago and since then have suffered pain on and off in my lower back. By using BE Relieved morning and night I rarely have pain any more. If I do, I simply massage in BE Relieved and within minutes the pain is gone. This is a wonderful product and I cant thank you enough for introducing me to it.

    I was very sceptical about using it at first, but I’m so glad I took the plunge and tried it. It’s great. Also, I have a fairly stressful job at times and can be quick to lose my temper. Pre Christmas is not pleasant in my job, but last year I handled it better than ever – thanks to my BE Uplifted friend. I rubbed BE Uplifted into my forearms and wrists a few times during the day and I’m happy to say I hardly blew my stack at all. I was very impressed with the way it helped me keep my cool. I’m sure my co-workers would like to thank you.

    Please keep up the your good work and again a big THANK YOU. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  98. Words cannon express the improvement Review by Karen Bramwell

    For quite sometime I have been on the lookout for natural therapies to assist my mother (she is 78) with her arthritis. I gave Mum the BE Relieved and massaged it into her knees for her, when I spoke to her the next morning she said she had had the best night's sleep, than she has had in a long time.

    I have now purchased the BE Sport and I will also give this to her when I next see her. I have purchased products for myself and they look gorgeous in my bathroom. I will give you a little of Mum's background so you can understand just what these oils mean to her. She only has one kidney. She lost the other one 35 years ago due to an infection that her doctor failed to treat her for. She has suffered with severe arthritis pain for many years and because of only having one kidney her doctors have refused to give her anything for the pain except Panadol. Well you can imagine the relief she got from that - none! She lives in a Housing Commission Flat - up four flights of stairs (no elevator). She was almost housebound because of the pain and the fact that one of her knees could give out on her at anytime without warning. The only way she could manage the stairs was moving sideways, like a crab. I bought her BE Relieved, BE Sport and BE Calm. Cheryl words cannot express the improvement in her. I have spoken to her tonight and she said she cannot believe the improvement in the pain and her mobility. She used to pull herself out of the chair sideways to stand. She can now stand up without any assistance. She walks up and down the stairs normally. She has painfree sleep. She still gets the odd twinge, but nothing like before. She also uses the oils on her back as she has a degenerative disc from age which sometimes causes back pain. I had to laugh at her tonight as I had told her about what the presenter had said on TVSN - if you are having trouble sleeping rub some BE Calm into your feet at night. She said she has been experiencing very dry skin so rubbed some oil into her feet and now they are as soft and smooth as a babys.

    I personally cannot thank you enough for the research that you have done, because whatever time my mother has left, she has back a quality of life. I have seen her in so much pain for so long I cannot believe the difference in her. The only problem now is I have to keep reminding her not to throw the bottles out as I want the crystals from them to collect. Whatever time she has left, I will keep her supplied in Balanced Essentials. Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing you on TVSN again. Kind regards (Posted on 19/07/13)

  99. Been using BE Relieved for about a year Review by Kathy Papadakis

    We spoke on the phone last Friday and as mentioned, here is my reference letter for you to use with my permission for anything you wish. You suggested I use it 2-3 times a day. I have done this now for 3 days and have noticed a marked difference in the amount of itching and the look of it. I wish I had done it sooner. BE Relieved is really what I wanted to write to you about though. I have been using BE Relieved for about a year now. I have suffered from upper back scoliosis since I was a teenager (am now 33) I constantly have a stiff upper back and neck and often lower back stiffness.

    Since having my son, who is now 2, due to lots of lifting him, and my huge pram etc I experience this stiffness and soreness often if not every day. BE Relieved has been my lifesaver. Almost every night my husband rubs it on me (no massage, he just applies it) and I sleep like a baby, and then wake up as good as new. No stiffness or soreness in the morning.

    BE Relieved has changed my life – I can now rely on this amazing bottle of oil to relieve my aching back. My neck pain and tightness used to be the worst thing I would have to deal with every day. Sometimes it would be so unbearable I used to have to take strong pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs so that I could sleep. This is all in the past now. My neck is not causing any such problems and when it is a little sore or stiff I just use BE Relieved and it calms down. Now that I’m six months pregnant again and getting heavier and heavier, my back is really feeling it and I’m getting quite stiff and sore all the time again. BE Relieved has been m lifesaver. I apply it ever night and it does wonders for me. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone, especially pregnant women. What amazes me the most is that with BE Relieved you don’t have to use massage. It actually works independent of massaging the sore spot. Just the oil applied does all the work to relieve the pain. You literally just rub it on and rub it in a little. That’s it. Amazing! The best part is that you can do it yourself. I apply it to my back and neck and it works without massaging it a lot – which is great because that’s very hard to do on your own. My husband who is not into massage and doesn’t like having anyone to massage him also has found relief with me doing the same to him with BE Relieved. He is a tradesman and gets very sore feet and calf muscles. I apply BE Relieved to his legs and feet and again, don’t massage it just rub it on and then he goes to sleep. He tells me it immediately relieves the throbbing and ache he has in his muscles, and by morning he is feeling great – no pain or ache in his feet or legs. This was not the case before I started using BE Relieved on him. He used to wake up and complain to me that he didn’t know how he would get through the day because his legs were sore from the day before. Cheryl thank you for your wonderful product BE Relieved. I couldn’t live without it. PS I also love the BE Lite shower gel (amazing smell and feel) and of course BE Calm which I am looking forward to using on my baby as well as my 2 year old son. Warm regards, (Posted on 19/07/13)

  100. To be able to breath freely Review by Linda Reed

    Hello I just wanted to let TVSN staff and viewers know that the Balanced Essentials BE Relieved and BE Vital have helped me to give up the use of nasal sprays and tablets!

    After years of being a slave to them I no longer need anything at all as one application of the BE Relieved and BE Vital on my nose and sinuses has cured me! I am so relieved to be able to breathe freely and want to let you all know in case you or someone you know suffers from the same problem I had. And have heard Melvadee say that she has problems with her sinuses and thought that she would appreciate knowing that she too can get relief. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  101. Another Balanced Essential rescue story Review by Jill Thurston

    Here is another Balanced Essentials rescue story. Just over a week ago I was visiting a friend, I got too close to one of her dogs and it bit me on the nose, it was very frightening and there was a lot of blood but the oils again were my saviour. I was left with a large cut about 1 ½ inches across the top of my nose and various nicks where the skin had been scratched but not broken. As soon as I got home I started bathing the wound with water and the BE Relieved, I knew it would clean and heal at the same time. I spent the rest of the day lathering the area around the wound with the BE Relieved (must have used half the bottle) to help with any bruising. It also stopped any soreness. By that afternoon I looked like I had gone 3 rounds in a boxing ring, I looked in the mirror and cried. I had scratches and cuts everywhere, and let’s face it, how can you look in the mirror without seeing at your nose?

    Well, I woke up the next morning and this time I almost cried with Joy, even after just one day of applying the oils it had improved about 70%, almost all of the initial redness and bruising had gone and even the large cut had improved. It is now only about 8 days since the incident and I have to put on my glasses to see what is only a small scratch on my nose, I have been applying a few of the oils every day to the area. I will never be without them. If anyone has any doubts about the oils, get them to send me an email.

    Cheryl, thank you again my friend from the bottom of my heart, you and your oils are a godsend. Who would have thought that a blue bottle full of gorgeous smelling oil could change and improve so many people’s lives, they truly are a miracle in a bottle. You friend always. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  102. I am a devotee of BE Review by Roslyn Mansell

    I am a devotee of BE and I have spoken to Cheryl many times - I know you are dealing with Be Relived today but I just have to tell you that I have been using Be Vital as a face moisturizer for at least l8 months and I cannot bear to use anything else on my face it is absolutely beautiful - I also use Be Sensual as a face moisturizer and the comments I receive about the aroma are many - I dont receive as many comments when I wear my French Perfume. It is such a lovely product and I will be using it forever - it is such a lovely experience using it every day - thank you for such a fantastic product!!!!! I will definitely be getting the Buyer's Choice! (Posted on 19/07/13)

I haven't touched conventional medicine for at least 3 years now... (Posted on 19/07/13)

  104. Flare-ups could leave me bed bound Review by Cheryl Deol

    I first became aware of Balanced Essentials through TVSN. I had been forced to stop working due to frequent Lupus flares and did not feel that my prescribed medication was beneficial to me. I was becoming frustrated and depressed with the effects of my illness, being inflammation of the joints in particular my left knee which could become the size of a grapefruit or watermelon. These flare-ups could leave me bed bound for up to 5 days.

    That was six days ago and I have become an avid regular user of BE Lite and BE Relieved. I find BE Lite of particular use during “flare-ups: for inflammation and BE Relieved for pain. I discovered that placing BE Relieved and BE Lite on the soles of my feet the oils absorbed quicker. I now only take my prescribed pain and inflammation medication (which is less frequent these days) when in extreme pain in conjunction with BE Relieved and BE Lite. I have my illness under control now with the aid of the wonderful Balanced Essentials range, have bought a mountain bike and ride it most days. I would not have been able to do this before Balanced Essentials. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  105. Told by the doctor I had shingles Review by Margaret Ingram

    Last Friday I was told by the doctor that I had Shingles. He prescribed an Anti-viral tablet. I was very uncomfortable so I applied BE Relieved every ½ hour or so. By Sunday they had lost their itch and today, Tuesday, they have started to heal.

    Thank you very much for your oils. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  106. Products have helped me to live not exist Review by Beverley Anne Ilsley

    I am writing this testimonial to let you know how your wonderful products have helped me to live not exist.

    Having had a painful experience with Trigeminal Neuralgia, panic attacks from the pain. I was treated with a cocktail of drugs, which resulted in the surgical removal of my gall bladder. I had a break-down as a final result and was recovering well when I discovered a lump in my right breast which I had removed and underwent chemotherapy. My weight ballooned to 88kg and I was told to lose 10kg at least. To date I have reduced this weight by 14kg with sensible eating and your product BE Lite. I also use BE Relieved and BE Sport for my arthritis which I have in my back and legs. Brighter future. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  107. Believed in BE Relieved for two years Review by Robyne Scott

    I have believed in BE Relieved for over two years now. I first used six weeks after having a bunion and toe straightened (which had to be broken) – I was in a cast for this time – then when it was removed I thought I would go straight into my shoes. No such thing – five weeks later I finally sent for a bottle of BE Relieved – within three days I could get a pair of my shoes on. I was thrilled with this.

    A month ago, I woke in the night with blocked and runny nose (you know how colds go) and had nothing to help me out. I applied BE Relieved over my cheeks and nose. I slept through the nose and it reduced the blockage. I suppose this was the anti inflammatory thing. Well now I really am a Believer.

    My little dog bit me on my cheekbone and punctured the skin. I went to the Doctors the next day and was given tetanus and antibiotics and bought a tube of Lanosil for the bruising. The bruising kept coming out and from my jawbone to my eye and was swollen with lovely red/black bruising coming out. That was Wednesday. Thursday I got out my BE Relieved and applied it every few hours - my eye was just about shut and the swelling was increasing, with the bruising coming out.. The bruising and swollen features are so much better today (Friday) – that I feel I can now face people. Believe me this was not just a slight injury, but pretty horrific, barring the skin being ripped. Yes it is still sore, puncture marks are still there and the swelling, but I would say in 24 hours it has gone down 50%. A lot better result than I expected.

    Thanks for an amazing product. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  108. BE Relieved is the answer to any ache or pain Review by Judy McCarthy

    I have minor health problems and, three years back, was diagnosed with a weird Hep C, from my ex husband who died at 55 from complications connected to the disease. I changed many things in my life, retired, moved to Tasmania from Melbourne and bought a few acres in the country on the Tasman Peninsula. Step One completed. Step Two involves Balanced Essentials, Alchemy and the Big Oscar juicer. Your product is my external skin moisturiser/mood elevator/sleep bringer and pain reliever. I have no painkilling pills in my house, BE Relieved is the answer to any ache or pain. And I use it internally, if a tooth aches BE Relieved is great rubbed on the sore area.I am now going to try your gold and silver, I have friends who swear by it but was worried about their supplier, purity etc and have total trust in your products.

    The one problem I have is smell, connected, my daughter says, with macadamia oil. It seems to connect to manmade fibres (I have wool allergies) and, even after washing, some items of clothing retain a rather horrid smell. I tend to be suspicious of the clothing make up then and throw it out. Gets expensive at times! Read your October newsletter, thanks for the tip on milk and oils as I purchased the Breathe air freshener from TVSN. The oil(?) mixtures with it are too synthetic and I cannot get anyone to tell me their ingredients. Not listed on the label is a big nono as far as I am concerned. TVSN is obviously struggling to replace your products and is doing a poor job currently.

    Thanks again for great products, feel so secure now that I have your home page in my favourites. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  109. Desperate to alleviate some of the pain Review by Suzi Johnson

    Recently I was given a bottle of “BE Relieved.” Dubious at first to try it because I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities/Chronic Fatigue, the bottle remained unopened. After another visit to my local GP and being told once gain, that further (ill-afforded) Physio was required for my ongoing muscle knots spasms, I attempted to treat myself. One night, in agony and desperate to alleviate some of the pain, I applied a small amount of “BE Relieved” to the problem area, then went to bed.

    The next morning I was amazed at the difference after just one application. Within two days my pain and discomfort was completely gone. Overjoyed at the results, this product has been recommended to everyone I know and even some strangers! You’re feeling lucky when you can get pain relief and save money at the same time. Heartfelt gratitude Cheryl for a fabulous product. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  110. A friend had sprained an ankle bushwalking Review by Judy McCarthy

    Gave away some more BE Relieved last week, a friend had sprained an ankle bushwalking and had to work that night (as a ghost tour guide at the historic site, lotsa walking!). She kept saying "Not just is this taking away the pain the smell is making me feel better too". What could I do but part with more!

    Have had a few teeth probs lately, swishing silver/gold seems to really help. Hard to tell if it helps elsewhere as I take so many vitamins etc. I also use BE Relieved on my gums and really like the taste. This new research on sandalwood etc and DNA appeals to me, really feel good when I actually take oils orally!Had an amazing reply from TVSN on one of their current "aromatherapy" products. The makers sent me a letter, stating, at the end, that they had put big $s into their product so could not reveal all the ingredients. Really made me want to buy that rubbish!

    Still can't live without some BE in my life daily. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  111. I have been a BE junkie for ages Review by Shelly Oxlade

    I am just so pleased that I had to email you on a Saturday am very sorry that you are not doing shows on TVSN anymore but business is business & if it was not helping then you have to do what's best for you & your business. I have been a BE junkie for ages, I think you will remember Cheryl I have Fibromyalgia & my mum has Breast Cancer, she also has Emphysema so she has heaps going for her. Anyway we use the BE Lite for her Lymphodoema in her left arm where she had her breast surgery.

    Anyway to try & make a long story short, I bought a bottle of BE Inspired, not sure if it was from you or from TVSN when they were clearing out their stocks. Last night I was a bit congested & felt that I was coming down with a cold, couldn't find my pink book that you send out to see which oil would be best for me instead of just falling back on BE Relieved for everything & I was looking in my Balanced Essentials cupboard & I saw the BE Inspired & I remembered watching you on a show on TVSN & one of the testimonials was about how easier it made you breathe. So in I go to my Mum and said just try this and see if it helps your breathing at all, so I rubbed in on her back & she rubbed it on her chest. Woke up this morning, went in & asked how she slept (I had forgotten I had put some on her) and she was so happy it was the best night sleep she has had in ages & could not rave about the BE Inspired enough, she breathed so much better just from rubbing a little bit into her body she was so pleased & could not believe how much easier it was for her morning. Firstly I to breathe at night.

    Sorry was supposed to be a short email, but I can't thank you enough, I use the BE Relieved for fibromyalgia, she uses all the BE Lite products for her Lymphodoema & now we will be ordering BE Inspired by the truckload. Only joking because that it the beauty of your products, not only do they work, but you don't need to use a lot. A little goes a long way.

    But I would so like to thank you for BE Inspired, because there is nothing worse that not being able to breathe properly & it is helping her so I am so so grateful. That's some of the tips that I miss from you being on TVSN, because I remembered that show & finally remembered to use it on her. Now you are not on TVSN I will have to email all my silly questions, I hope that's okay.

    Many, many, many thanks for your wonderful products you have no idea how you have helped this sick household. Bye for now & good health to you & your staff. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  112. The relief was amazing and rapid Review by Dan and Margaret Larsen

    I would love to win the Balanced Essentials Gift Basket for Mother’s Day.

    Balanced Essentials is used in our household every day for the past 6 years. I first started using BE after watching you on TVSN. We use BE Sport, Relieved, Uplifted, Vital, Sensual, Lite, Male and burn the oils every day. In 2003 Dan had shoulder surgery. BE Relieved was used on his shoulder from day one and now the scar is barely noticeable. I had Carpal Tunnel surgery in 2004 and of course BE Relieved was used on my fingers as I had a large dressing on my hand for 5 days.

    In 2006 Dan was hospitalised with Viral Encephalitis. His skin was extremely sensitive to touch and his back and neck was very painful. I took BE Relieved into the hospital and used it on his back and neck, patting it on gently as he couldn’t tolerate to be touched. The relief was amazing and rapid. Recently I came out in a heat rash on the inside of my arms. It was very itchy so out came the BE Relieved and the itch was gone in minutes. BE Vital is used on my face every day and BE Lite has been used on my upper arms for about 4 months. The fat dimples have improved out of sight.

    Thank you Cheryl for your range of fantastic products. We both love them and don’t know what we would do without them. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  113. It has given me a way to improve my everyday life Review by Sandra Komenza

    I would like to enter the competition for the gift pack. I do not have a severe health problem but what I do have is the everyday challenge of any 47 year old woman. I work full-time I am a mother and I do not have much time to think about the things that will improve my life. Balanced Essentials has changed my life because it has given me a way to improve my everyday life without taking too much time and believe me time is an issue.

    I use the BE Relieved and BE Sport to relieve the aches and pains I have accumulated over the years , it allows me to do gym to walk and relieve those aching joints in effect it keeps me going. I use BE Vital when I am feeling tired and when my skin is telling me “I need help” I use BE Lite to keep at bay those horrible times of the month when I feel bloated and was surprised and delighted to find it helped me to lose weight. I use BE Calm when I cannot sleep the world sometimes has a habit to creep into the night and the mind cannot shut down. I use your lovely soaps which do not dry out my skin. I have said I do not have major health problems but I do have a busy life and thanks to your lovely products I confidently start a day knowing I am in good hands. Sometimes a little help goes a long way I know.

    I am a very lucky woman, a healthy family, a job I enjoy and Balanced Essentials to make sure it stays that way. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  114. The pain as I stood up was excruciating Review by Louise Smithers

    Yesterday I really had an amazing experience with BE Relieved. I was home on a Sunday scrubbing my dirty bedroom carpet with a shampooer, which left it a bit damp. I had wet feet and walked into my tiled ensuite bathroom, slipped on the floor, started to fall and was clambering to get my balance. I didn’t want to crash into the bath or vanity, but completely lost my footing and grabbed desperately at the bath to grab on anything and not fall down. I caught the edge of the bath, but not with my whole hand just my right finger. I put my whole weight on it regaining my balance.

    The pain as I stood up was excruciating and I began to see stars. I was sure I had broken my finger. My daughter walked in and I yelled for her to get the BE Relieved. I poured it on still clutching my right hand and finger. Pain began to sear up my whole lower hand. To my amazement within a few minutes the pain had almost completely gone. I felt sure I would be left with deep bruising, swelling and a sore hand.

    Today there is the tiniest bit of an ache if I REALLY think about it. I would never believe that it wouldn’t be very sore for a few days at least while it healed – but nothing! Amazing! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  115. After using BE Relieved the pain disappeared Review by Emily Moore

    It’s joy to be a Mother, Grandmother and Greatgrandmother at the age of 80 years, and still be able to do everything for oneself, with the help of Balanced Essentials. Some years ago I had both hips replaced but have still had pain, after using BE Relieved the pain disappeared and I get around more freely now, with daily massage of BE.

    I’ve recently developed a frozen shoulder, which meant I shouldn’t use my right arm, also it was very painful. I had a cortisone injection which eased the pain slightly but didn’t fix the problem. I put my trusty BE Relieved to work and was able to move my arm freely and no more pain, sleep comes easier these days. I also use BE Lite for Cellulite and have lost weight and feel so much better. I use incense and find them very therapeutic.

  116. My right knee gave way and it just went crack Review by Christine Tsatsanis

    In January 2003 I slipped on some plastic and ended up doing the splits. My right knee gave way and it just went crack. I got up without any trouble, thinking everything was fine. Within 2 weeks it kept giving way and every time it happened, I kept falling, until the 6th time, when I pulled a hose that was stuck around the tyre of our 4WD. When I pulled the hose, the joiner cam undone, which sent me flying and the knee cracking and ended up on the ground. It was that bad that I couldn’t move or get up. I was in so much pain, that the ambulance had to be called to take me to the hospital. They gave me painkillers and after spending about 8 hours there and doctor’s taking X-rays of my knee, they told me I had arthritis.

    They then said they had to operate and they were going to put me on 6 week waiting list. Whilst on crutches, my right knee started to get very painful. I went back to the hospital and they decided to take x-rays of my other knee. They told me I had arthritis on that knee as well, and it needed to be operated on. I tried to tell them the pain was due to me falling and the use of the crutches, but the doctor said it was arthritis and its been there for several years and is getting worse. I kept saying no it can’t be, because I knew what had happened.

    Anyway I started using BE Relieved and BE Sport on both knees and within days the pain had reduced and within a couple of months I had no pain whatsoever. The hospital sent me a letter to let me know what date they were going to operate. I had to ring and cancel. I tried to explain that the pain was gone, due to these oils I was using, but they didn’t want to know about it. To them I had a severe case of arthritis. Two more letters were sent with new bookings regarding the operation. So much for having arthritis, and that was in 2003.

    In October 2004, I started getting dizzy, so I went to my local doctor. He said “go home”, “it’s stress”, “rest”. It didn’t work. I went 11 times to different doctors plus my own doctor again, and even at the hospital. None knew what was wrong. Once doctor referred me to a neck specialist. He told me I had a neck problem, and it would be there forever. He told me to do exercise, moving my neck left to right. It didn’t work. I had to play doctor to myself once again. I filled up the bathtub, put BE Relieved and BE Sport in the water, then I rubbed these oils all around my neck and laid down with my neck under the hot water. I did this for about 1 week, and I started to feel better. The dizziness wasn’t as bad, so I kept doing it. It took about 6 months for the dizziness to completely go away.

    These product’s would have to be the best I have ever used, even my husband and children love the. I also love BE Sensual (smells fantastic) and BE Vital for the face. They work wonders on slight wrinkles, just under the chin area. My husband and children even noticed the slight wrinkles under my chin were gone. We also find BE Inspired is very good for chesty colds. I call these oils my doctor in a bottle.

    Thank you so much Cheryl. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  117. I was 38 years old when I fell pregnant Review by Dianne Yazbeck

    Yes’ BE products have changed my life Hi, My name is Dianne I am 40 years old and have 4 children, 16,14, 12 and 1 year old. My fourth child was a complete surprise as we were not planning to have any more children.

    The doctors, and I were concerned as I was 38 years old when I fell pregnant and they said, because of my age there was a chance that I may have complications in my pregnancy. I was so upset but decided to keep pregnancy and not do any invasive procedures. Since I had my other children in my twenties with no problems, I was very concerned about how my body would cope, at 38!!. I decided to eat very healthy and use only natural products on my body.

    First I started with the BE Lite oil, body wash and lotion. I rubbed on my growing tummy, arms, thighs and buttocks religiously every morning and night, I used body wash in shower and lotion after. My husband rubbed my back with BE Relieved most nights or when I was in pain and I used BE Lite on my ankles (when) they swelled (which was only a few times towards the end). Also I made sure I packed a bottle of BE Relieved in my bag for the labour. Firstly, I had a completely normal pregnancy with no complications at all. I continually got compliments about how I was glowing!!! - I only gained 8kgs through-out the pregnancy and got no stretchmarks what so ever. When I was in labour, BE Relieved was there to help me cope with the pain. When you are older, you don’t cope well with pain as much as when you are younger, I found the BE Relieved on the lower back took the edge off the pain. I had no other pain relief. My beautiful 4.2kg baby girl was born naturally after a 3 hour, straight forward labour, with no stitches.

    The most amazing thing was, the way my skin looked after she was born. It was not stretched or flabby at all. It didn’t even look like I’d just given birth. I had NO cellulite on my thighs, arms or bottom (which I did before I was pregnant), in-fact I hadn’t seen my skin look and feel so good ever!! I put it down to the regular use of the BE Lite and Relieved products – they really were amazing in keeping the fluid away and making my skin so soft and firm. I love the BE Lite range and am a living example that they work! I will continue to recommend BE Lite to everyone. Thanks again!!! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  118. I have used BE Relieved ever since Review by Andrea Dean

    Reading your note regarding the recycling of the blue essential oil bottles on the front of the August newsletter reminded me of how I was introduced to Balanced Essentials, and thought you might be interested in hearing the story.

    My husband and I had the huge task of clearing out his Mother's house when she died. Amongst the books, ornaments, photos, medications, and a myriad of 'bits and pieces' I found a blue box containing a pretty blue bottle which was about 2/3rds full of BE Relieved. I had never heard of the Brand/product but when I rubbed some on my arm it was clearly something out of the ordinary and not to be thrown away! I checked out the website and have used BE Relieved ever since (about 4 years now) - mainly on my arthritic knees! I am gradually trying other products and embracing them in my regular routines.

    I have given the products as gifts recommended the products to many friends and this is the reason I don't have any blue bottles to recycle as each time I get down to about a tablespoon left in the bottle it is passed on for them to 'try before they buy'! I certainly hope your other customers do the same. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  119. BE Lite and BE Relieved have worked together Review by Marilyn Adams

    I would like to thank you for BE Lite and BE Relieved.

    For the last 3 months I have been housebound through ligament damage and fracture to my ankle. This occurred by stepping off a gutter and rolling my ankle. The pain was severe and the swelling was about the size of a grapefruit on the outside of my ankle as well as swelling on the inside of my foot. After a couple of days both my leg and foot showed bruising and apart from struggling to use the bathroom I was completely bedridden. An x-ray confirmed the damage and the doctor prescribed anti inflammatories to reduce the swelling. After reading the side effects I decided not to use them and instead opted to continue using BE Relieved which I had been literally pouring (not rubbing) onto the area from the beginning. This reduced the swelling and the pain.

    After consulting with a Physiotherapist to help mobilise the area I felt that progress was too slow and so rang and spoke to Louise who told me to use copious amounts of BE Lite as well as BE Relieved. The improvement I had within 24 hours was incredible. The stiffness in the ankle area subsided allowing me to do the physio exercises a lot easier and after a couple of days I could actually walk around the house with the help of only one crutch. I really thought that this would happen in around another 4 weeks.

    Today which is approximately 1 week after starting the intensive use of BE Lite and BE Relieved I am nearly ready to walk unassisted – something I though would be months away. BE Lite and BE Relieved have worked together to enable movement in my ankle by reducing the swelling and inflammation, improve the circulation and overall improved my wellbeing. With only 2 weeks until Christmas and 12 people coming for Christmas Lunch I do not know how to thank you for your wonderful oils.

    Thank you so much and I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and continues doing such fine work in the New Year. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  120. It is not just humans that can benefit Review by Judith Stephenson

    Hi Cheryl, Thank you so much for your time today, it truly was appreciated. I will begin with your suggestions immediately. As I mentioned to you, I have been so impressed with Balanced Essentials not only for your excellent products, but it is a joy to discover such wonderful Customer Service as well.

    BE Lite is the best solution I have ever found to insect bites … before BE Lite I would suffer for days, now the itching stops within minutes and the redness usually disappears overnight, if I apply BE Lite immediately and follow up a few more times before bed. The bottle is always on the cupboard for easy quick access, particularly in the warmer months. BE Calm also helps my dogs as they can be anxious in the car. The days I forget to rub it on their tummies I know it. They are a problem, I wonder what is wrong with them and realize it is me. I forgot their BE Calm. I will be applying it more liberally to me in the future as you suggested. BE Relieved I love. I always reach for BE Relieved when I have headaches, general aches and pains. I recently realized all the OTC pain medications in my home had expired, by 6 months to a year. I hadn’t needed them, as BE Relieved was doing the job. It is not just humans that can benefit from this wonderful product. My dogs have problems with their knee joints and often their legs cramp if they are too vigorous in play. I now immediately massage their legs with BE Relieved and usually within 5-10 mins they are able to move their legs again. They know the ritual and when I roll them over and open the bottle, rub it on my hands they lie there waiting for the BE Relieved to be massaged. It is so amazing to see their relief and how they are able to stretch and move their legs in such a short time. I confine them for a day or two and continue to use BE Relieved to be sure they are ok, as they are moving normally within a few hours. BE Relieved and glucosamine has made an enormous difference to my dogs. 1 dog hasn’t had a problem with her leg at all in over a year, the Vet recommended she have surgery 3 years ago, as the only solution. BE Relieved has helped avoid surgery and canine medications that can also cause additional health problems. I now always seek the most natural solutions to health problems for my dogs and myself as the 1st option. I have found many problems are solved with natural products when they are as excellent as Balanced Essentials. I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful products and your commitment and compassion and suggestions. I will let you know how I am progressing via email and I look forward to talking with you in the future and finding out more about how your products can assist me in my recovery and ongoing well being and help create a better work environment. My apologies .. for this suggestion, it’s just how I think. When I asked you if some of the other uses for your products were on the website it started me thinking. I have a bad habit of doing this J With technology these days you may be able to video discussions between you and your customers, or provide sessions where you talk about products etc … and have them available for selection and to view via your website. You don’t need to only be on TV or live to provide your information these days as I’m sure you know – your website could provide ongoing communication, be more direct with your customers and under your full control. Maybe even you in the lab – now there is a reason you would have to be in there. Just a thought, in case it hadn’t been brought to your attention before. Again Cheryl, best wishes for your continued success. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  121. How fantastic BE Sport is for bruising Review by Louise Smithers

    I just had to say how fantastic BE Sport is for bruising. Last Sunday, wandering down my carpeted stairs at home, my cuff went under my heel and I skidded down the last four stairs on my rear-end! Ouch, ouch and double ouch! My elbow had caught he skirting board and my heels landed on the hard tile floor, and the pain in my lower back and coccyx had me fearing I had really broken it again!

    When the stars finally cleared I yelled for the BE Sport. Applied liberally to my screaming heels and elbow, after a minute I couldn’t even feel them! I poured it all over my bruised and VERY sore rear regions hourly for the evening. Gingerly I took to bed with a heat pack and BE Relieved. Next day I was tender only when I forgot and plonked down in a chair too quickly. Boy did I get off lightly! I expected to be extremely sore for weeks and I forgot I even injured myself most of the week. Four days later a spectacular green and blue bruise has appeared! I am just tender, not in pain or sore. BE Sport has really turned a disastrous fall into a slightly annoying experience.

    Thank heavens for BE Sport. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  122. Oils made a huge difference Review by Mark Bluett

    I was bitten by a wasp on the thumb. Normally I would have a matter of about 30 seconds to do something about it before I get an anaphylactic reaction. I could feel the process starting from the thumb and it was starting through where the little red spot is, and it was working its way into the hand.

    Cheryl immediately put BE Relieved and BE Lite on it and that started to relieve the throbbing that was there. The blood system was pumping the venom through but for some reason when she applied the oil the throbbing stopped. Normally you can feel it just going right through your whole body. The throbbing stopped and the funny feeling that I normally get when it starts to hit the heart is usually 30 seconds or so, then I’m on my way out, but for some reason it didn’t. I felt very faint and my chest went very tight but otherwise I didn’t have the same reaction that I normally get from venom. It’s the formalin in the poison that I’m allergic to. European wasps and bees, not the native bee but also green ants as they have formalin in their poison.

    Previously I have been to the University Hospital at Westmead to be desensitised under their RUSH program. They injected me with bee venom starting with .001 microgram and then increasing by small increments to build resistance. After the 1st injection I was admitted to intensive care. Subsequently, 5 attempts later and being written up in Australian medical journals as an extreme case, the doctors contacted other specialists in the US to find out what to do. They suggested dosing me with antihistamine and steroid drugs first before injecting, which also failed. They thanked me for attending the class, told me unfortunately I had failed and they were kicking me out of school followed by “Have a nice life and don’t get stung by a bee.” They had damaged my heart with overuse of adrenalin which I am now hypersensitive to. Something in the oils made a huge difference.

    I know from previous experience with a friend of ours, called Dorothy, that the oils helped her daughter. She was bitten by a bull ant and she’s as allergic to bull ants as I am to bees and Dorothy managed to get her to the medical centre and she said if she hadn’t put the oils on, she would have lost her.

  123. BE Relieved is the only thing that gives me relief Review by Barbara Murphy

    As I am an age pensioner (who seems to have a lot of pain). My daughter-in-law, Leeah Murphy, gave me some bottles of “BE Relieved” a couple of years ago for a Christmas & Birthday & Mother’s Day gifts. She used to order them on line, but now lives in another state. So put me on your mailing list. These were the best gifts I have ever received and BE Relieved is very special as it is the only thing that gives me relief.

    So this is my first order on my own. I only have a few drops left now, so hope it arrives soon. Thank you for a special & wonderful product. I hope we can always be able to buy this product. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  125. I recommend it to people who suffer back pain Review by Dorothy Bradbury

    My daughter bought me a bottle of your Balanced Essentials oil BE Relieved paid & inflammation – and I’ve been using it regularly on my hip & back, its given me wonderful relief.

  126. I still can't live without some BE in my life daily Review by Judy McCarthy

    Thanks for reply, of course you may use any comments I make for whatever purpose. Gave away some more BE Relieved last week, a friend had sprained an ankle bushwalking and had to work that night (as a ghost tour guide at the historic site, lotsa walking!). She kept saying "Not just is this taking away the pain the smell is making me feel better too". What could I do but part with more!

    Have had a few teeth probs lately, swishing silver/gold seems to really help. Hard to tell if it helps elsewhere as I take so many vitamins etc. I also use BE Relieved on my gums and really like the taste. This new research on sandalwood etc and DNA appeals to me, really feel good when I actually take oils orally! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  127. The difference after just one application Review by Suzi Johnson

    Recently I was given a bottle of "BE Relieved." Dubious at first to try it because I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities/Chronic Fatigue, the bottle remained unopened. After another visit to my local GP and being told once gain, that further (ill-afforded) Physio was required for my ongoing muscle knots spasms, I attempted to treat myself.

    One night, in agony and desperate to alleviate some of the pain, I applied a small amount of "BE Relieved" to the problem area, then went to bed. The next morning I was amazed at the difference after just one application. Within two days my pain and discomfort was completely gone. Overjoyed at the results, this product has been recommended to everyone I know and even some strangers! You're feeling lucky when you can get pain relief and save money at the same time.

  128. How much I love your products Review by Megan Foster

    Hi there, I just wanted to drop a line to say how much I love your products. I have used BE Relieved and all the miniatures of your massage oils in past years but I recently broke my shoulder and tore a rotator cuff tendon and was in extreme pain for weeks. A friend recommended BE Relieved for night-time and BE Sport for during the day. Within a day I noticed a decrease in the pain. Within a week my doctor noted I had 10 degrees more movement back. I am still not "out of the woods" but your products are most definitely helping me. I also ordered BE Vital for my face and the Uplifted soap. Since having my baby 8 months ago I have had eczema and dry patches on my skin, broken capillaries and dark pigmentation on face. After 3 weeks of use my skin looks so much better. Even toned, soft, smooth and glowing. The capillaries and pigmentation have almost gone and even the fine lines around my eyes seem to be decreasing! The soap is gentle on my dry/sensitive skin and makes me feel so awake and fresh in the morning. With the Vital oil I rub it all over my body while still damp from the shower then after patting dry add a little more to dry spots and to my face before finally applying the Sport to my shoulder. A little goes such a long way and I smell divine! I can't recommend your products to family and friends enough. I'd also like to commend the staff who take orders. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional. It's rare these days to find customer service that is not rushed. Thank you so much. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  129. I call these oils my doctor in a bottle Review by Christine Tsatsanis

Within 2 weeks it kept giving way and every time it happened, I kept falling, until the 6th time, when I pulled a hose that was stuck around the tyre of our 4WD.

    Anyway I started using BE Relieved and BE Sport on both knees and within days the pain had reduced and within a couple of months I had no pain whatsoever. The hospital sent me a letter to let me know what date they were going to operate. I had to ring and cancel. I tried to explain that the pain was gone, due to these oils I was using, but they didn't want to know about it. To them I had a severe case of arthritis. Two more letters were sent with new bookings regarding the operation. So much for having arthritis, and that was in 2003.

    In October 2004, I started getting dizzy, so I went to my local doctor. He said "go home", "it's stress", "rest". It didn't work. I went 11 times to different doctors plus my own doctor again, and even at the hospital. None knew what was wrong. Once doctor referred me to a neck specialist. He told me I had a neck problem, and it would be there forever. He told me to do exercise, moving my neck left to right. It didn't work. I had to play doctor to myself once again. I filled up the bathtub, put BE Relieved and BE Sport in the water, then I rubbed these oils all around my neck and laid down with my neck under the hot water. I did this for about 1 week, and I started to feel better. The dizziness wasn't as bad, so I kept doing it. It took about 6 months for the dizziness to completely go away.

    These product's would have to be the best I have ever used, even my husband and children love the. I also love BE Sensual (smells fantastic) and BE Vital for the face. They work wonders on slight wrinkles, just under the chin area. My husband and children even noticed the slight wrinkles under my chin were gone. We also find BE Inspired is very good for chesty colds. I call these oils my doctor in a bottle.

    Thank you so much Cheryl, Christine Tsatsanis (Posted on 19/07/13)

  130. BE products have changed my life Review by Dianne Yazbeck

    Yes' BE products have changed my life Hi, My name is Dianne I am 40 years old and have 4 children, 16, 14, 12 and 1 year old. My fourth child was a complete surprise as we were not planning to have any more children. The doctors, and I were concerned as I was 38 years old when I fell pregnant and they said, because of my age there was a chance that I may have complications in my pregnancy. I was so upset but decided to keep pregnancy and not do any invasive procedures. Since I had my other children in my twenties with no problems, I was very concerned about how my body would cope, at 38!!. I decided to eat very healthy and use only natural products on my body. First I started with the BE Lite oil, body wash and lotion. I rubbed on my growing tummy, arms, thighs and buttocks religiously every morning and night, I used body wash in shower and lotion after. My husband rubbed my back with BE Relieved most nights or when I was in pain and I used BE Lite on my ankles (when) they swelled (which was only a few times towards the end). Also I made sure I packed a bottle of BE Relieved in my bag for the labour. Firstly, I had a completely normal pregnancy with no complications at all. I continually got compliments about how I was glowing!!! - I only gained 8kgs through-out the pregnancy and got no stretchmarks what so ever. When I was in labour, BE Relieved was there to help me cope with the pain. When you are older, you don't cope well with pain as much as when you are younger, I found the BE Relieved on the lower back took the edge off the pain. I had no other pain relief. My beautiful 4.2kg baby girl was born naturally after a 3 hour, straight forward labour, with no stitches. The most amazing thing was, the way my skin looked after she was born. It was not stretched or flabby at all. It didn't even look like I'd just given birth. I had NO cellulite on my thighs, arms or bottom (which I did before I was pregnant), in-fact I hadn't seen my skin look and feel so good ever!! I put it down to the regular use of the BE Lite and Relieved products - they really were amazing in keeping the fluid away and making my skin so soft and firm. I love the BE Lite range and am a living example that they work! I will continue to recommend BE Lite to everyone. Thanks again!!! (Posted on 19/07/13)

  131. What a difference your products have made Review by Yvonne Thompson

    Hello Cheryl, I am writing to let you know what a wonderful difference your products have made to my life. I have been a 'user' of Balanced Essential products for almost six years. Firstly purchasing when you were on TVSN and now purchasing directly from you. I used to suffer with bad varicose veins, migraine headaches, arthritis, and fluid retention. Whilst I still have these problems I no longer suffer with the debilitating pain associated with them. I use BE Lite for Cellulite every morning on my stomach, hips, thighs and legs, and sometimes also apply BE Lite Firming and Toning Lotion to my legs. I also apply BE Sport to my knees, ankles and hands. This helps with the fluid retention, and painful arthritis. I also use BE Relieved for the pain of migraines by rubbing on my temples and the back of my neck. Just for the sheer luxury and beautiful aroma I also apply BE Sensual to my arms and chest. Every evening before going to bed I apply BE Relieved to my legs and ankles and BE Calm to my feet. I also have one of your electric vaporisers which I constantly use in my home. I wash my face and body with BE Lite body wash. I could not live the active life I lead without your beautiful products. Over the years I have tried all of your products (or most of them). I am 60 years young and work part time. My workmates always comment on the beautiful aroma when I am in the office. I always tell them that not only do the products smell good but that they make a significant difference to my health and well-being. But Cheryl, the best thing is that my husband, who is always sceptical about anything that you don't get on prescription, tried the BE Male Aftershave that I received in one of the special packages that I purchased a few months ago. He suffered from severe burns to the face many years ago and when he shaved he always had a red, blotchy face. Well not any more. He swears by your product and always lets me know when he is running out so that I can order more. He now also uses BE Relieved for his painful arthritis and says that it works too. We have converted him Cheryl. I also have two little Chihuahuas who used to suffer from very itchy skin. Now when I bath them I put a little BE Calm in the wash water and some drops of lavender in their rinse water, problem solved. (And they smell so good). Once again, thank you for your wonderful products. I am forever grateful. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  132. Balanced Essentials has changed my life Review by Sandra Komenza

    Balanced Essentials has changed my life because it has given me a way to improve my everyday life without taking too much time and believe me time is an issue.

    I use the BE Relieved and BE Sport to relieve the aches and pains I have accumulated over the years , it allows me to do gym to walk and relieve those aching joints in effect it keeps me going. I use BE Vital when I am feeling tired and when my skin is telling me "I need help" I use BE Lite to keep at bay those horrible times of the month when I feel bloated and was surprised and delighted to find it helped me to lose weight. I use BE Calm when I cannot sleep the world sometimes has a habit to creep into the night and the mind cannot shut down. I use your lovely soaps which do not dry out my skin.

    I have said I do not have major health problems but I do have a busy life and thanks to your lovely products I confidently start a day knowing I am in good hands. Sometimes a little help goes a long way I know.

    I am a very lucky woman, a healthy family, a job I enjoy and Balanced Essentials to make sure it stays that way (Posted on 19/07/13)

  133. The help of Balanced Essentials Review by Emily Moore

    It's joy to be a Mother, Grandmother and Greatgrandmother at the age of 80 years, and still be able to do everything for oneself, with the help of Balanced Essentials.

    Some years ago I had both hips replaced but have still had pain, after using BE Relieved the pain disappeared and I get around more freely now, with daily massage of BE. I've recently developed a frozen shoulder, which meant I shouldn't use my right arm, also it was very painful. I had a cortisone injection which eased the pain slightly but didn't fix the problem. I put my trusty BE Relieved to work and was able to move my arm freely and no more pain, sleep comes easier these days.

    I also use BE Lite for Cellulite and have lost weight and feel so much better. I use incense and find them very therapeutic.

    "Balanced Essentials are a must in every home, Try them and see they're on their own. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  134. I have used BE Relieved ever since Review by Andrea Dean

    My husband and I had the huge task of clearing out his Mother's house when she died. Amongst the books, ornaments, photos, medications, and a myriad of 'bits and pieces' I found a blue box containing a pretty blue bottle which was about 2/3rds full of BE Relieved. I had never heard of the Brand/product but when I rubbed some on my arm it was clearly something out of the ordinary and not to be thrown away! I checked out the website and have used BE Relieved ever since (about 4 years now) - mainly on my arthritic knees! I am gradually trying other products and embracing them in my regular routines.

    I have given the products as gifts recommended the products to many friends and this is the reason I don't have any blue bottles to recycle as each time I get down to about a tablespoon left in the bottle it is passed on for them to 'try before they buy'! I certainly hope your other customers do the same. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  135. BE Relieved has been a godsend due to arthritis Review by Sharon Francis

    I would not be without your BE Relieved as it has been a godsend due to early arthritis in my knees and ankles (it got me off the Celebrex over two years ago!) ... my Mum also as it has helped with healing and prevention of ulceration of wounds (due to a condition that has made the skin on her arms and legs paper thin.

    I really miss your presence on the screen and enjoyed your shows very much. Do you do any seminars or similar? I would love to know as your knowledge is invaluable and inspiring. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  136. Best solution I have ever found to insect bites Review by Judith Stephenson

    BE Lite is the best solution I have ever found to insect bites ... before BE Lite I would suffer for days, now the itching stops within minutes and the redness usually disappears overnight, if I apply BE Lite immediately and follow up a few more times before bed. The bottle is always on the cupboard for easy quick access, particularly in the warmer months. BE Calm also helps my dogs as they can be anxious in the car. The days I forget to rub it on their tummies I know it. They are a problem, I wonder what is wrong with them and realize it is me. I forgot their BE Calm. I will be applying it more liberally to me in the future as you suggested.

    BE Relieved I love. I always reach for BE Relieved when I have headaches, general aches and pains. I recently realized all the OTC pain medications in my home had expired, by 6 months to a year. I hadn't needed them, as BE Relieved was doing the job. It is not just humans that can benefit from this wonderful product. My dogs have problems with their knee joints and often their legs cramp if they are too vigorous in play. I now immediately massage their legs with BE Relieved and usually within 5-10 mins they are able to move their legs again. They know the ritual and when I roll them over and open the bottle, rub it on my hands they lie there waiting for the BE Relieved to be massaged. It is so amazing to see their relief and how they are able to stretch and move their legs in such a short time. I confine them for a day or two and continue to use BE Relieved to be sure they are ok, as they are moving normally within a few hours. BE Relieved and glucosamine has made an enormous difference to my dogs. 1 dog hasn't had a problem with her leg at all in over a year, the Vet recommended she have surgery 3 years ago, as the only solution. BE Relieved has helped avoid surgery and canine medications that can also cause additional health problems. I now always seek the most natural solutions to health problems for my dogs and myself as the 1st option. I have found many problems are solved with natural products when they are as excellent as Balanced Essentials.

    I can't thank you enough for your wonderful products and your commitment and compassion and suggestions. I will let you know how I am progressing via email and I look forward to talking with you in the future and finding out more about how your products can assist me in my recovery and ongoing well being and help create a better work environment. My apologies .. for this suggestion, it's just how I think. When I asked you if some of the other uses for your products were on the website it started me thinking. I have a bad habit of doing this J With technology these days you may be able to video discussions between you and your customers, or provide sessions where you talk about products etc ... and have them available for selection and to view via your website. You don't need to only be on TV or live to provide your information these days as I'm sure you know - your website could provide ongoing communication, be more direct with your customers and under your full control. Maybe even you in the lab - now there is a reason you would have to be in there. Just a thought, in case it hadn't been brought to your attention before. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  137. Thank you for BE Lite and BE Relieved Review by Marilyn Adams

    I would like to thank you for BE Lite and BE Relieved.

    For the last 3 months I have been housebound through ligament damage and fracture to my ankle. This occurred by stepping off a gutter and rolling my ankle. The pain was severe and the swelling was about the size of a grapefruit on the outside of my ankle as well as swelling on the inside of my foot. After a couple of days both my leg and foot showed bruising and apart from struggling to use the bathroom I was completely bedridden. An x-ray confirmed the damage and the doctor prescribed anti inflammatories to reduce the swelling.

    After reading the side effects I decided not to use them and instead opted to continue using BE Relieved which I had been literally pouring (not rubbing) onto the area from the beginning. This reduced the swelling and the pain. After consulting with a Physiotherapist to help mobilise the area I felt that progress was too slow and so rang and spoke to Louise who told me to use copious amounts of BE Lite as well as BE Relieved. The improvement I had within 24 hours was incredible.The stiffness in the ankle area subsided allowing me to do the physio exercises a lot easier and after a couple of days I could actually walk around the house with the help of only one crutch. I really thought that this would happen in around another 4 weeks.

    Today which is approximately 1 week after starting the intensive use of BE Lite and BE Relieved I am nearly ready to walk unassisted - something I though would be months away. BE Lite and BE Relieved have worked together to enable movement in my ankle by reducing the swelling and inflammation, improve the circulation and overall improved my wellbeing. With only 2 weeks until Christmas and 12 people coming for Christmas Lunch I do not know how to thank you for your wonderful oils. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  138. My husband had a circulation problem Review by Julianne Petterson

    I have been using your products since talking to you some months ago when my husband had a circulation problem with his legs. However, today has really been a revelation for me. I have been suffering from fibromyalgia for some years and anyone in the same position would know what that means. Three days ago I bent over to pull up my stockings AND (here we go again) my back went into spasm. I contacted my physio who, three days later, still hasn't found a time to see me.

    Desperation was setting in when I noticed my BE Relieved which I use for arthritis in my hands (quite handy as I am a piano teacher!!). I then applied it to my lower back and went to bed with little or no results that night. Next morning I used it again and felt some relief mid morning. At lunch I used it again and by mid afternoon I just couldn't believe the results. All the spasm in my lower back had gone - it was a miracle, especially as pain killers and anti-inflamatories just don't help at all with this condition. Having spoken to you I now realise that in future I use BE Sport as soon as it happens and work between it and BE Relieved until I get "relieved". (Posted on 19/07/13)

  139. Thank you very much for your oils Review by Margaret Ingram

    Last Friday I was told by the doctor that I had Shingles. He prescribed an Anti-viral tablet. I was very uncomfortable so I applied BE Relieved every ½ hour or so. By Sunday they had lost their itch and today, Tuesday, they have started to heal. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  140. These were the best gifts I have ever received Review by Barbara Murphy

    As I am an age pensioner (who seems to have a lot of pain). My daughter-in-law, Leeah Murphy, gave me some bottles of "BE Relieved" a couple of years ago for a Christmas & Birthday & Mother's Day gifts. She used to order them on line, but now lives in another state. So put me on your mailing list.

    These were the best gifts I have ever received and BE Relieved is very special as it is the only thing that gives me relief. So this is my first order on my own. I only have a few drops left now, so hope it arrives soon.

    Thank you for a special & wonderful product. I hope we can always be able to buy this product. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  141. After getting Bronchitis every year Review by Vicki Martin

    I contacted you years ago when you 1st appeared on TVSN with a problem called RSD plus a chronically bad back and you suggested BE Relieved for my back pain and BE Lite for my RSD foot. I want to give you the BIGGEST thank you ever because here we are 5yrs later and I am doing so well all because of your amazing oils. I recently had to move house and I would never have gotten through it all without your oils. I "nagged" my Mother to use them for her problems and after she (like many others) was amazed by the fast relief she received is now (like me) a true advocate and tells anyone who will listen how much they help.

    I have just become a Grandmother of a beautiful baby girl and the BE Relieved was the 1st thing my son and daughter in law packed in the Hospital bag to help with the labour. I, after getting Bronchitis every year, have not had even a cold since I have been on your oils, in fact I haven't caught any of the flu bugs while all around me other people were getting really sick.

    Cheryl, I am doing so well now and so are all the people I have told about your oils, so I cannot thank you enough. I seriously could not get by without BE Relieved and BE Lite, I have all of your oils but they are my "heroes” followed by BE Inspired which keeps my chest clear in "flu time".

    Much Love to you, your family and your wonderful team that helps you keep this amazing product on the market helping thousands of people like me. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  142. Flabby arms is no longer an issue Review by Louise Smithers

    BE Lite is amazing.

    After working with Cheryl and using many of Balanced Essentials products for years and replacing 99% of anything beauty and medicinal in my house with the glorious scents and therapeutic oils, I am still amazed when they prove to be so effective. A friend even commented, “BE is a river!” at my place. They comment on the lovely smell all over my house, and often on me also.

    Wanting to revamp my body a bit for summer, I recently dug out a lot of my favourite summer tops and silk skirts. Lo and behold a small drop in weight meant they looked better BUT what was that ugly underhang under my upper arms. Ugh! It did not look good! “What would Cheryl advise?” I thought. So every morning and evening I rubbed BE Lite oil vigorously into the underside and tops of my arms. Only a week later the greater firmness and tone was amazing. You could see the improvement, as the flab didn’t wobble nearly as much. I felt confident wearing all my great summer wardrobe and flabby arms is no longer an issue. All this WITHOUT additional exercise! It seems to give me an all over metabolism boost too. In both mood and physical bounce. The days seemed to have a bigger lift. Apply, apply, apply is all I can say. Even when I think I know how good they are I am still constantly amazed! The only things I would not be without on a desert island! Oils sarong, mascara and a toothbrush!

  143. I'm a converted BE Relieved believer Review by Many thanks. Ida Glavich.

    I recently purchased BE Relieved after visiting BE on a coach tour. That night I wanted to help my neighbour’s daughter who is five years old. She had been in pain and not sleeping for about five days. The doctor was still trying to diagnose her problem (? Pancreas) and was not able to help her with her pain. I applied BE Relieved as she laid on the lounge. I was amazed when she fell asleep so quickly. That night was the first night in days that she had slept through the night.

    She came to see me the following morning saying “Auntie Ida” I slept through the night. I’m all better now”. What can you say. I feel so happy that I was able to help and now I’m a converted BE Relieved believer.”

  144. Within 5 minutes no more itches Review by Anne Kirk

    When we were out at your lovely place last Wednesday I bought the BE Relieved as I love to try new lotions and have many beautiful creams and things at my house. In the evening we sat outside with our dog and it was humid but nice in the back garden. We came in about 7.30pm and my husband was bitten as usual around the feet area and ankles. We put some lotion on and within 5 minutes no more itches. The next day he had the quick around his finger pulled and it was very sore again it worked for him and a week later is healing.

  145. Helps ease my chronic pain Review by Alison Read

    Thank you so much for your help in providing pain relief to my family and myself.

    I use BE Relieved every night before bed on my neck and shoulders to ensure a restful sleep. This is the only product I have tried which helps ease my chronic pain. During the day I rely on BE Sport to alleviate the ache. Our cat also calms down when we put BE Relieved on her nose. We have recently moved and used it on the cat every day for a week until she was settled. My three teenagers all use the pain relief duo when injured or sore after sport. I rub some BE Relieved on my husband’s temples when he has had a stressful week and it eases his level of stress. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  146. I use Relieved, Lite, Uplifted and Calm. Review by Ricki Elizabeth Drewry

    I use a range of BE oils, from Relieved, Lite, Uplifted and Calm. They all play an important role in my daily life. To start my working day I use BE Uplifted. It helps to set my mind in a more positive way.

    I use BE Relieved to manage pain in my neck and shoulders due to a major fall 8 years ago. The decision to have surgery is no longer necessary.I use BE Lite to detox my body each day and it works like magic.

    Finally I end my day with BE Calm. After a warm shower and using BE Calm I have a relaxing and satisfying sleep. Thank you so much for your products. Even our dogs benefit from these oils. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  147. As a volunteer bush fire fighter Review by Roger Bullen

    I am taking this opportunity to contact you with regard to the benefits I have received from applying BE Relieved natural oil. Recently I undertook a major operation of approximately 5 hours which required significant incisions in my chest and back areas, after the anesthesia had worn off and my discharge from hospital 3 weeks later I experienced high levels of pain and discomfort which accompanied the healing process. After applying BE Relieved to my back in the areas of the incisions and the accompanying swelling, I noted a considerable reduction in the swelling of my back and also a reduction in pain together with a major improvement in the healing process, I have continued to apply the oils as supplied and this will enhance the healing process and my recovery from the operation, without which I would not have survived.

    I was first introduced to BE Relieved some 18 months ago when, in my capacity as a volunteer bush fire fighter, found BE Relieved most effective in the treatment of insect stings ie bull ants sustained in the field, relief being obtained within a very short period of time, I also found the oil most beneficial in the treatment of skin irritations as a result of contact with noxious weeds i.e. wandering dew in the involvement in bush regeneration. I would have no hesitation in recommending BE Relieved for the treatment of the above and will continue to avail myself of other oils which may be of future benefit.
    Thank you once again for your support and I will watch with interest the expansion of your range of products. (Posted on 19/07/13)

  148. They saved my sanity Review by Brenda Freitag

    I have been using your products for about 4 years now, I would like to tell you that they saved my sanity when I was dehydrated with gastro for weeks and in and out of hospital. I couldn't keep the panadine forte down the doctor gave me for the stomach cramps, so every hour or so I applied BE Relieved on my stomach and the pain would go and I could rest a while.

    I now use the BE Sport in the morning for my neck, arm and leg and use the BE Relieved at night to get a great sleep all night long. Many thanks again for wonderful products.

    Warm regards, Brenda Freitag (Posted on 18/07/13)

  149. I suffer from severe muscle and joint pain Review by Steph Robbie

    Just wanted to say thanks - I suffer from severe muscle and joint pain, and until I started using BE Relieved, well I was never relieved. It is the only thing that has helped me in 30 years.

    So, congratulations on making ACA - and please don't raise your prices when your business inevitably picks up from this! We can only just afford it as it is.

    Thanks! Your oil is a lifesaver. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  150. BE Relieved on my arthritic knees Review by Joanne Ayton

    I have used Balanced Essentials products for approximately 10 years. I tell everybody about them. The first time that I used BE Relieved on my arthritic knees, I could not believe that I was able to walk upstairs pain free. I also used it on a customer whom her hands were so painful from her arthritis that it was painful for me to massage it in. She rang me about an hour later to let me know that it had worked wonderfully.

    My partner has always had trouble sleeping. The first time that I got him to use the vapouriser with BE Calm essential oils, and he said that it was the best nights sleep that he had had in months. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  151. I believe in it so much Review by Marian Mayne

    I spoke with you this morning on the phone. To my great surprise it was you yourself answering the phone centre. I was calling about my account that I believed to be wrong from an order that I had received from the April May Newsletter. What a thrill and delight you are. We spoke about what, and when I started to use your product. That I had started when you were first with TVSN. All those many years ago. They have been such a great help to me throughout lots of illness on my part and my family’s. They got me through some of the toughest times of my life. Using them not only benefits me pain wise, but also mentally as well. I’m 65 and a pensioner and live in a drought part of Australia, Moama on the border of NSW and Victoria, so every penny counts now and I indulge whenever I can.

    I use BE Relieved the most, everyday for pain relief. Also BE Lite, not for cellulite, but for water retention in my legs and on my tummy. BE Sport for my husband. And I have found that BE Calm has helped heaps when over the last few years, what with my own health issues, I had a few bad years with my mother’s health, cancer, breast, hip operations and shoulder operations, heaps of stuff. BE Relieved helped her at the same time my wonderful husband went through and won prostate cancer, and bad legs with cellulitis infections. BE Relieved and BE Lite to the rescue again. And my darling grandson born 6 months premature I ‘ve used BE Relieved on, he is now two and a half years old and doing wonderfully well. So while all this was going on my father’s dementia went beserk, and so did I. So BE Calm was my answer. I’m telling you all this not for sympathy, and I know we all go through bad times, that at the time there are many more people worse off that have had many more dramas to cope with than myself. But I’m just writing to tell you my story and the wonderful help your product has had with me. So keep up the good work. I spread the news to whoever will listen. I believe in it so much.

  152. I constantly use BE Relieved & Calm Review by Liza Brodel

    I would like to say THANK YOU to BE & Cheryl.

    I am 42 & suffered 3 strokes at the end of July and then spent the next couple of months in
    hospitals here in Tasmania & in Melbourne. I constantly used BE Relieved and BE Calm to help me through a lot of pain and stress. I received so many comments from patients & hospital staff asking what the beautiful smell was, and then passed on your details. It made a huge difference to me,
    so thank you.

    I am very happy for you to use my comments with research and helping others. It really made me feel sorry for patients who do not know about the power of aromatherapy and these beautiful oils, and how much this can help them cope. So I am happy to do anything I can to spread the word! (Posted on 18/07/13)

  153. I could not live without BE Relieved Review by Lorraine Klimenko

    I really miss your TVSN shows. My family are sick of me telling them how good your products are, but I could not live without BE Relieved. Lucky I bought quite a few from TVSN and everyone in family has a bottle. I am on my 2nd last bottle now and am so glad I found you on line. I also have everything else you sell including electric oil dispencer.

  154. I worked with your products at TVSN Review by Kara Dubois

    I worked with your products at TVSN. I bought the BE Relieved product and use it in a relaxing bath or on my arms where I have re-occurring pain. IT’S AMAZING! I love the relaxing feeling it provides after a bath. If I’m ever stressed, sore or having trouble sleeping a warm soak in a bath with BE Relieved is all I need to emerge feeling calm, relaxed and relieved of pain. I must admit I would have never bought such a product but seeing it and testing it at TVSN helped me find a product I now totally swear by!

  155. She came back in absolute awe Review by Andrea Ferrari

    My mother visited your estate last week with Rozelle Probus. She came back in absolute awe of your achievements, the story and the products. She is using the Be Relieved oil and her very arthritic knees are really freed-up and much less painful. She is cautiously optimistic, but she keeps saying “I can’t believe it” !

    I publish the trade magazine for the retail beauty industry – Esprit Magazine. I am puting as copy in the post to you today – for info. I would be happy to cover your products if you would like editorial. My readers are from the department stores and pharmacies nationwide. I don’t usually cover direct sell companies, but in the circumstances, with my mother finding the oil so effective , I will find an angle, if it’s OK with you.

  156. I have suffered from severe muscle cramps Review by Olive Kolkka

    The day that my friend Elaine Smith introduced me to BE Relieved was my lucky day. I have suffered from severe muscle cramps for as long as I can remember. Just one week after using BE Relieved I am free of cramps and now no more sleepless nights.

    As for BE Calm it is living up to its name. I feel like a new person.

    Thank you Elaine, thank you Balanced Essentials. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  158. It was the best thing we did Review by Jean Williams

    I enclose cheque plus postage for a repeat order of BE RELIEVED FOR PAIN & INFLAMMATION.

    The relief I get from this is almost instantaneous and soothing. My husband rubs it into the back of my neck for me and I do the rest! I must say that he always used to compain of dry skin on his hands. He no longer complains, as he receives the benefit of handling BE Relieved when he rubs my back for me. It must have a dual purpose for us both.

    When a group of us from Castle Hill Senior Citizens Club called in to you on a day’s outing (on our way to Berowra Waters), it was the bet thing we did – otherwise I would never have known about what I call my Magic Oil. So once again a big “Thank you” from me to you for easing the pains of my arthritis. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  159. Changed people's lives with natural pain relief Review by Kathy Hodge

    I/we love all of your wonderful products and can't imagine life without Balanced Essentials!

    BE Relieved, BE Sport, BE Lite and BE Calm all are used constantly in our house, by everyone, even Zoe my dog!

    We have helped friends and neighbours with all sorts of pains and sprains! My husband Stephen is a very keen surfer, he took a bottle of BE Relieved with him on a surfing trip to the Solomon Islands ( Stephen used to be a sceptic until he used your products) and one of the surfing crew twinged his back whilst surfing and was in quite a bit of pain. Stephen offered him some BE Relieved and the guy took it and rubbed it in without any hesitation, Stephen made a joke saying "you have to believe in BE Relieved"..... Well, the guy could not believe the next day his back was feeling so much better he was able to continue surfing for the rest of the trip! He asked for a contact for your products, Stephen gave him your website addy!

    I could ramble on and tell you so many more things your products have helped out with, from my youngest son's irritable hip syndrome, Hudson would not let go of the BE Calm bottle the nurse was trying to take it away, all he wanted was his BE Calm! to calm him down! it really works wonders calming the younger one's and everyone in the ward enjoyed the beautiful aroma...lol...... :o) Sorry Cheryl, I'm rambling!

    So, thank you, Cheryl, for creating these exceptionally wonderful aromatherapy oil blends, you have changed peoples lives with natural pain relief!! The only way to go!...

    All the best to you,

    Hope you have a great weekend too :o)

    Kathy, Stephen, Jesse & Hudson.

  160. Severe tendonitis in left shoulder Review by Ani Hart

    BE Relieved has vanished the severe tendonitis in my left shoulder. It was so bad that I couldn't lift my left arm. The Doctor's said it would right itself in about three months, maybe. If I wanted to move it I would have to do so by lifting it with my right hand. I have finally persuaded my husband to use on his 'dickie' knee and painful hip. It is improving greatly. Many thanks.

  161. I love your Balanced Essentials Review by Margaret Wilden

    Hi Cheryl I love your Balanced Essentials and have been using them for some time miss you on TVSN I asked you to be a facebook friend some time ago I am friends with Malvadee on facebook and would be very grateful if you would add me. Love your BE Calm and BE Relieved as it has it has helped me on so many stressful times.
    Margaret Wilden 9 Mar 2010

    Hi Margaret. Thank you very much for letting me know. Your comments mean a great deal to me. BE Calm and BE Relieved are strong and complex blends that have many properties and I am continually amazed at the different ways they help. I couldn't imagine being in any other industry other than aromatherapy. There is still so much more to learn about essential oils even though we already know so much. I don't ever want to stop learning and your comments and other people's help support me in helping spread the word. I'd love to add you as a friend.
    Margaret Wilden 10 Mar 2010

    Thank you Cheryl for adding me and yes your products are wonderful not only for me but my sister keeps asking me for more especially BE Calm she loves it. She also uses BE Sport for her 14 year old son after he plays sport so once again thank you for the add and your wondefull products.
    Margaret Wilden 10 Mar 2010

    I will pass your regards on to my sister she so loves your products. Yes you can add my comments to your "customer comments" it would be a honour because it is all true thank you once again my warmest regards to you Margaret. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  162. Suffering auto-immune condition Review by Anita Sekar

    I have used your products for many years (since they were sold on TVSN) and still love to use them. BE Relieved and BE Lite for Cellulite are fantastic health promoting products. I recently passed on the Sweet Almond Oil to my Mum who calls it her “Miracle Oil” as it only relieved swelling in her hand joints. We both can’t do without these products. Can I request a specials pack with BE Relieved, BE Lite for Cellulite and Sweet Almond oils?

    I have also tried your Colloidal Silver and Gold and they are excellent tonics. Thanks so much Cheryl for your wisdom and skill in creating such high quality products. I have a work background in Law but turned to your products after suffering a serious auto-immune condition at the tender age of 28. Am now 41 and can’t manage my physical ailments without the BE products. Using the oils definitely reduces the inflammation and I don’t need to take any meds apart from one Panadol every now and again. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  163. Results using BE Relieved/BE Sport Review by Gloria and Graham Fardy

    I wanted to let you know the results I have experienced using BE Relieved.

    Recently I had a fall in a shop. The shop assistants were moving boxes around the floor of the shop and I did not realize that there were 3 boxes stacked up alongside me.

    I turned around and fell over the stacked boxes. The boxes were cardboard however when I fell against the box felt like hard timber. Immediately I could feel that I was getting a lump just under my knee cap, it was the size of an egg within 5 mins, also from the lump down the front of my leg was turning dark all the way to the top of my foot, the pain was just awful.

    I went home and rubbed on BE Relieved, I used it every 10 minutes on the lump, and with my leg elevated the lump was gone in approx one hour, I also used frozen peas to get the swelling down. The bruising that extended to the top of my foot took a bit longer, however by the end of the day the bruising and swelling was almost gone. I continued using BE Relieved for the next few days and thank goodness my leg healed nicely.

    Also my husband used to get Gout in his ankle and foot, his foot was twice the size of the other. When he had Gout last time he started using BE Sport and BE Relieved alternating between the two and the result was amazing.

    The swelling of his ankle and foot decreased, 4 hours later he could use his foot and was walking without any pain, by the way he hasn’t had Gout since.

    (In order for the products to work and because I could not touch the area I wrapped men’s large hankerchief’s that had been soaked in the BE Sport/Relieved it worked wonders).

    Thanks for such wonderful products, we couldn’t live without them. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  164. Here I am in California Review by Wendy Mulligan

    Hi Cheryl, here I am overseas in California with my friend I have not seen for 16 years, I brought over a bottle of BE Relieved for her hips and Barbara thinks it is wonderful. So far I have used it across her shoulders the first night I arrived and the next morning she had no pain whatsoever and she could not believe that it would go away that quick as she has been living with the pain. The next was her hips and then her stomach and with her stomach the pain went away within half an hour which Barb thought was great and for her hips also. Barb has to have her hips operated on, Carotid artery on both hips have to be done and the only thing that has helped before this is having acupuncture
    which is around $90 a session.

    Barb loves your oil and is wondering how much it would cost in postage to send it here to California, the price in total including price of oil in US$ can you help with this for me while I am still here. I am so pleased I brought the oil over with me plus I brought the images on how it works so quickly.

    Thanks again for your help over the years. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  165. Hip resurfacing operation and bone graft Review by Janine Bonello

    If you have not confirmed an idea for your monthly specials as yet I was wondering if you could have BE Relieved and BE Calm as one of them.

    Two weeks ago I went into hospital to have a hip resurfacing operation and because I also had a cyst on the area they had to give me a bone graft as well. I took in BE Lite and BE Relieved to get me through the discomfort. Thank God for BE Relieved it helped me so much with swelling and soreness and helped me get some sleep at night time. For the first 2 weeks after the operation I had to sleep on my back with a wedge or rolled up towels between my legs to keep my legs apart and to make sure I did not cross my legs. I have at least a 12 inch cut from the cheek of my left back side down my leg and because laying partly sitting up for those 2 weeks I would get such a sore butt.

    Rubbing on the BE Relieved kept me sane. Only now I am allowed to lay on my unoperated side when I sleep at night so having the BE Relieved for night time as well as putting it on before I do my rehab exercises helps so much. I am all out of BE Calm so I need that oil too to help me get a better quality sleep during the night. Hope you can help.

    Lots of love and appreciation of your products. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  166. Recently I had a full knee replacement Review by Lesley Joyce

    Recently I had a full knee replacement and I and would like to say to any of your customers of yours should they be heading into hospital or any reason the first product that should be pack into their sponge bag is a bottle of BE RELIEVED. From the day after my op and for the next three months I rubbed three bottles of your fantastic oil into my knee (extravagant maybe, but so much better than any pills.) From helping to bring the bruise out and to get the knee bending again I really do not know how I could have been able to cope without the oil. The nursing staff just love the smell when they entered the room.

    Thank you once again for your fantastic oils, we are so lucky to be able to get them. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  167. We have 2 dogs Review by Teresa Kaczynski

    I look forward to your newsletters and have kept them all as a reference when needed. I have loved using your products for many years especially the BE Relieved. I have used this on myself and my pets and have even loaned it to other people for their ailments.

    Balanced Essentials good for you and your wellbeing.

    Thanks for responding yes feel free to use my comments. We have 2 dogs. One a beagle puppy and another little fox terrier who is 12 years old. The little foxy we believe may have a bit of arthritis and whenever she is pain we use it on her. Our puppy was recently desexed and after the pain killers wore off we just rubbed a bit on her belly. We have also use BE Calm on the puppy as well when she goes a bit “feral” just to calm her down.

    By the way our neighbour who is in her 80’s and has had several knee constructions uses BE Relieved on a regular basis when she is in pain and a bit stiff. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  168. BE Relieved is pure gold Review by Barbara Clark

  169. I developed foot problems Review by Louise

    Achieving a certain age “The 50s!” I, like so many friends developed foot problems. Don’t know what it was, but a small internal foot injury would not mend. Eighteen months later, after hobbling around I took it seriously enough to get X rays and ultra-sound. No results! Stress fracture maybe said the doctor. Six months later one foot was a little better and the other got painful. Could not walk around normally, do housework, go for a walk. Started having to plan my supermarket visits near the entrances and felt a hundred, not being able to walk normally.

    Back to the doctor. We decided to put my foot in a cast for 6 weeks. I endured the frustration pain and stiffness of that to come out of the cast and only be half better and still not pain free. Swelling and stiffness was as bad as the original pain. I decided to apply BE Relieved liberally twice. Morning abd bedtime and not favour the foot, walk through the stiffness and pain.

    Slowly, slowly, it got better and better the inflammation and swelling subsided and it is now, 6 months later, released me back into normal life. I can walk run shop and play squash! BE Relieved accelerates the healing and freed up the foot and heel dramatically by reducing the inflammation. I would be lost without it in my life. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  170. My Cystitis relief Review by Louise

    My BE Relieved miracle cures!
    In the middle of the night recently I was awoken by that familiar urge to visit the bathroom. Seven visits later with decreasing production and increasingly urgent pain, I realised I was in the middle of a severe and unexpected attack of cystitis. If you get it you know how awful it is. Recounting my liquid intake the previous two days I realised I had brought it on myself!

    “More liquids” the doctor had admonished the last visit. In great pain, unable to sleep and the ever increasing urge to go I thought of BE Relieved. I surmised it went through the urinary system and was antibacterial so I slathered it on my stomach back and all around my middle, had as much water to drink as I could manage and eventually drifted off to sleep.

    Imagine my amazement in the morning to wake up symptom free. I had thought for sure I would need antibiotics and the doctor, knocking on his door pleading at 8.30. legs clamped together. Sure enough, more water intake all day and it was as though I never got it 24 hours later. Amazing!! (Posted on 18/07/13)

  171. The swelling in my right leg and ankle Review by Joan Okey

    Must just say thank you ; thank you; thank you for your wonderful products.

    I've used BE Relieved for a few years, but with the addition of BE Lite, the swelling in my right leg and ankle, which sustained multiple fractures, is considerably reduced and the pain has also gone. Such a great relief, am beginning to feel I am getting back to "normal".

    Thank you again, can highly recommend these products. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  174. Tennis elbow and more Review by Carmen Calleja

    Thanks very much for your help. I frequently suffer from colds and various strains of the flu.

    I have some BE Relieved at home as my mum uses it to help her (she has the tennis elbow injury). She swears by it as she no longer has to wear an elastic band on her wrist to help her through the day. She uses the BE Relieved oil in the morning and evening.

    I use BE Calm and find it helps me when I’m anxious or stressed.

    Your products are genuine and I have told many people I know about your products and have recommended they use them. Some of them have and are quite happy with the resulting pain relief.

    Thank you for responding to my email so soon. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  175. Injured pigeon with infected toe Review by Tina C

    Dear Balanced Essentials,

    I was totally amazed to get your email with the link to the bird vet, the timing is impeccable as I just picked up an injured pigeon outside the Coogee Bay Hotel which I am keeping at home in the cat basket, it has an infected amputated foot. I watched the video link and it is exactly what Dr Perry is treating a pigeon for with BE Relieved!

    I just gave this little bird its first 'BE Relieved' foot massage. It appeared to enjoy it :)

    Last week I was away with my boyfriend, a chronic shift worker with sleep issues and I said to him have a hot bath with BE Relieved in the water, as it always knocks me out. He tried it and could not believe how well he slept.

    What an amazing all rounder product!

  176. Acute back pain and fungal infection Review by Di CE

    At the outset I must declare that I am lucky enough to be a personal friend of Cheryl Gilbert’s (volunteers in the Rural Fire Service) but that is not the reason for this unsolicited note of thanks. Cheryl initially helped me with acute back pain by introducing me to BE Relieved (with a lovely massage) and I was able to straighten up and walk within less than twenty minutes. I have been using it for all sorts of pain ever since.

    I also regularly use BE Inspired for asthma relief plus BE soaps, body wash and creams. However, for over ten years I have suffered from an odorous fungal disease in three toes (one big toe more than 70% yellow and crumbly). For this I had tried every medical prescription including very expensive creams, varnishes, pills etc which I really just poured down the drain (literally in one case). Some of these caused significant side effects. When this ‘big toe’ became infected (luckily on a Sunday when I couldn’t seek other medical advice) I asked Cheryl for a treatment and Cheryl administered BE Uplifted. It was immediately effective for the infection and Cheryl advised to continue with it to alleviate the problem. I was skeptical as nothing else had worked but I followed Cheryl’s instructions – BE Uplifted twice a day, the nails will discolour etc. I have been doing this for over six months and the diseased nail has almost grown out. I don’t experience any nausea or topical infections. AND my feet smell great!

    Thank you Cheryl, BE has improved my life in many ways!

    P.S. My GP is also impressed and thankfully is open to ‘alternative’ treatments. She has indicated she may refer others to BE. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  177. BE Relieved on four month old having injections Review by Veronica Sylvester

    Little Paige, is four months old, and when my daughter Claire and I took her for her injections, I took the BE Relieved. How marvellous! As I massaged the oil into her little leg, she stopped crying and there was no hint of a bruise. Clair applied the oil for a few days afterwards.

    When my bottles of BE are finished, I turn them upside down on the furniture and let the remaining drops of oil penetrate the furniture. The oil is a marvellous restorer for blackwood, cedar and myrtle. I just rub the oil into the furniture with a soft cloth. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  183. I am an avid user of your products Review by Angela Randell

    My name is Angela and I am 41 & an avid user of your products! I have a two year old son and when he was born, my sister in law bought me a gift pack of your products and I absolutely loved them! Inside the beautifully boxed set was a bottle of BE Relieved which I massaged into my new born sons tummy every time he was grizzly, and sure enough soon after he would release some gas & stop the grizzling, music to a mothers ears! Also in the pack was some BE Calm, which is another joy, I massage this on him every evening after his bath, and we have never had any drama's with him settling for bed, another blessing!

    I was overweight when I fell pregnant, and then put on another 20kg during my pregnancy, It has taken me the last 2 years to lose the baby weight I gained, and slowly but surely I will lose the other 20kg that needs to go also, but I would love the opportunity to try your BE Lite Firming & Toning Lotion as I need all the help I can get in getting my body back to shape & gain some confidence which slips away when the clothes come off!

  184. BE Relieved and flu vaccine Review by Wendy Mulligan

    Hi Cheryl, for the first time ever I have come through without having a sore arm after getting the flu vaccine last Friday, as you suggested I rubbed BE Relieved onto my arm as soon as the needle came out and the next day I had a very very slight tenderness which is really unusual for me as my arm has been red hot with a large lump and other times nobody could touch my arm for at least 3 to 4 days as it was very painful.

  186. Help with shingles and sleep Review by Julie Yule

    I have been using your oils for a few years now, especially the BE Relieved and BE Sport with the few ache and pains that I get from time to time. Then my Mum got sick with Shingles and I was caring for her, she was so pleased for me to massage the BE Relieved into her legs as the pain was so unbearable.

    Then unfortunate we had the sad news that my niece has breasts cancer she has just finish her last Chemo session and hopefully all clear. But while going through it all she just couldn't sleep so I gave her some BE Calm which helped her so much, and she was so grateful to her aunty for that one.

    So now if my family have any aches or pains they just ring me and that's why I have no oils left. But I just really wanted to thank you very much Cheryl for your oils they have made a difference to my life and for me to be able to help my family is a great BONUS!!!

    Thanking you so much!!! (Posted on 18/07/13)

  187. BE Relieved has been a godsend Review by Glenice Bruce

    My husband was found to have a tumour on his spine and a fractured vertebra 12 months ago. Was then diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.

  188. Stomach aches, nausea etc Review by Sandy Ronchi

    I just wanted to let you know that I have found another way of using my BE Relieved! The last two nights I have gone to bed and then a few hours later I have woken with a really bad tummy ache and felt like I was going to be really ill. A couple of nights ago, when this happened for the first time, I went to the bathroom and felt really sick. On my way back to bed something told me to rub some BE Relieved on my tummy and on my chest (I also felt like I had heartburn), which I did and went back to bed. About 5 minutes later I felt this wonderful warmth spread from my tummy to my neck and it was such a nice feeling that I promptly fell asleep! By the morning, I was 95% better!

    Later that afternoon I was feeling fine. Then last night, hubby said he too was feeling a bit queasy so I rubbed in the oil. He too fell asleep within minutes! Later last night, I too then felt ill again, only this time it was worse. After wondering around the house trying to stop the sick feeling rising up, I went back to the cupboard and got out the oils and again rubbed it in. I put more on this time, as I was really feeling so unwell! I made my way back to bed and I found within 10 minutes I was in a deep, deep restful sleep! I woke this morning like I had never felt ill in the first place! Wow!

    That to me is a new way of dealing with feeling sick! Normally I would reach for the Eno or something similar but NOT ANYMORE!! I know the oils helps with my daughters period pains but I never thought It would help someone with what I can only describe as, slight food poisoning! That\'s what it felt like.

    Thank you again for your amazing products! (Posted on 18/07/13)

    On Friday I leave to do my big walk in Holland. I have been training in our local area [The Warburton Rail Trail] with many walks up to 30kms - so after these walks my legs have been very sore.

  191. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia Review by Frank Fowler

    I tried your BE Relieved for the first time yesterday. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and am on a high dose of Tegretol. However, it's not foolproof. Changes of temperature or certain movement of of the jaws still activate pain. I went to the pharmacy yesterday to find something to get relief and I was given a dab of BE Relieved. It worked within 5 mins. I later bought some & used again last night & worked in 10 mins. Amazing stuff.. thank you. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  192. Cramping and spasms from bowel infection Review by Kerry Moore

    Thank you for your reply. I will order some more BE Relieved soon but I wanted to ask if I should wait for the shows on TVSN. I am a regular customer and am very pleased you are going to be back with TVSN this month.

    Also I am happy for you to use my comments about my daugher for your customer feedback.
    There is another experience I have had with BE Relieved that I wanted to share with you as well. Several years ago I was diagnosed with a severe bowel infection. This was so painful that I would be unable to stand straight due to pain and cramping and spasims in my side, especially in the mornings. I would struggle to walk until I put on some BE Relieved oil. The result was an immediate easing of the cramps so I could walk straighter, and the pain was lessoned. I could not massage the oil in as the area was too painful, so it was proof the oil worked on its own. Amazing!

    Thank you Cheryl. (Posted on 18/07/13)

    People are so often sceptical about natural remedies and I was one of them. However when my very sensitive maltese cross poodle was in much pain due to arthritis, he became snappy. Usually he responds to me gently patting him. On this ocassion his nose was snarly and he was clearly distressed.

    So I had been using BE Relieved with great success so I gently began to massage him with the oil and in less than a minute he laid at my knee and was totally relaxed. He then began to turn so I could reach where he was sore. He ended up on his back asleep within five minutes!

    This to me was absolute proof that this product really delivers as promised ! As for myself I am so happy to have BE Calm, BE Sport & BE Relieved at my fingertips !

    Thank you so much. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  195. Damage to lower back, spine, hips and pelvis Review by Kay Vargas

    Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude and best wishes to you for returning to TVSN.
    You should Never have left and I am so happy that they finally showed wisdom in having you return!

    I'm sorry that it's been a while since we spoke, but so much has happened.

    In 2010 I went overseas to visit my younger daughter who was having her first child. It was a very exciting time but it was also fraught with all sorts of situations. I was there for over 8 months and while it was very nice, ultimately, there's no place like home.

    Just as I thought I was about to settle down and work on things here, I had a bad accident last February 23rd. It was a terrible fall which resulted in severe damage to the muscles, ligaments and nerves in my right leg - and the entire right side. Actually, as the MRI and scans which they recently performed showed that there is further damage to the lower back, the spine, the hips and the pelvis.

    As you can imagine, the pain was unbearable.
    Why the hospital didn't do the MRI and operate at the time, I will never understand. As a result, everything had to be done 'piece meal' - a little at a time, which was very difficult to do considering how I couldn't move. Also, since so much time was elapsing without any recovery, my left side is now seriously damaged from the stress of over-compensating for the right side.

    Since then, I have been on Endone, Lyrica and other powerful medication.

    I had stopped for 4 months as my younger daughter, and her now 2 year old son, came to stay with me just 3 weeks after my accident - as she was pregnant with twins. She had a very high risk pregnancy, so the family felt it was best for her to have the babies here. Thank God, it all worked out well for her and the babies. Now we are waiting for her partner's visa to be approved so he come move here.

    I had stopped taking the medications so I could be alert and handle the children, since it is just my daughter and myself doing all the work. Unfortunately, the pain became unbearable so I began taking it again at 1/4 the dose and only at night. It hasn't been easy dealing with the pain and carrying the babies, but, I have to be strong for as long as possible.

    I have a little BE Relieved left and I am now using it at night along with my reduced medication, otherwise the pain is too severe. It helps me get a few hours of sleep, so I can get up and handle the babies in the morning.

    I have always been grateful for your Balanced Essential oils because I know they work, but now I thank God for you and your products every night when I try to find some relief, and sleep.

    So, Thank You for creating such effective products, that can be used safely by everyone - even the babies, and still make them affordable so that everyone can use them.

    God Bless You Cheryl (Posted on 18/07/13)

  196. I recently used BE Relieved for circulation Review by Debra Lisle

    Would love to pass on the biggest THANK YOU to Sheryl. Love your products so very much and enjoy watching the shows and listening to you.

    I recently used BE Relieved on my 90 year old Grandmother whilst she was in hospital. She had broken her hip she was in pain and the circulation in her hands and feet were not good. She was understandably also very distressed. After massaging the oils into her hands and her feet the
    circulation improved very quickly it was amazing her hands and feet were now warm and pink!! Not only that, her distress was also relieved and we were actually laughing and the atmosphere in the entire room changed.

    The other patients in the room just enjoyed the aroma. Nurses who came into the room wanted some on their hands. The experience was very uplifting.

    My mother is also suffering with arthritis in her hip and is needing a replacement she is in terrible pain. I have given her both BE Relieved and BE Sport and she is using the oils many times a day. She said she is actually sleeping so well at night now.

    Please keep going and keep producing your amazing products.
    Love your passion and your integrity. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  197. I was airlifted by helicopter Review by Lindy Winnell.

    Dear Friends at TVSN,

    Just wanted to say, Loving the Balanced Essentials shows, there is always something new to learn.
    I have purchased Cheryl's beautiful Balanced Essentials range, from the very first day she was on TVSN all those years ago.

    I was air lifted by helicopter from a car accident back in 2009 and taken to Intensive care, I was fortunate to survive the accident. One of my sons brought in a bottle of BE Relieved, and the nurses kindly applied. It helped all my breaks and injuries, and also breathing. Everyone commented on the beautiful natural aroma and said that my hospital room was nice to be in.

    We all use the entire range and love these non-toxic soothing essential oils.

    Thank you again Cheryl, don't know where we'd be without the beautiful blends which you have created. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  198. BE Relieved, fractures etc Review by Lindy, and family

    Hope you had a lovely trip to TVSN and arrived home safely.
    I just wanted to say what a fantastic show you, and Lee did yesterday.
    So much information, and so many wins for people like me who are so sensitive to toxic artificial chemical fragrances, and the like.

    I loved the Egyptian story too. makes people really sit up and think about what they are putting on their skin, and breathing in.

    When I used the Balanced Essentials in the RMH and the Epworth, the nurses did comment that they like being in my room.
    I eventually did have a very long list of fragrance free nurses. Elizabeth was a very pretty black nurse, who was quite a big girl, and she would help me do up my shoes at times, and she was funny as she would say "oh Elizabeth, Lol..I am so fat I cannot gey back up again lol." She was not that fat, just a big girl. And Cathy was an Indian Nurse who had lovely jewellery and let me try on her rings, and Kylie and Au nurse talked about her 2 boys etc, and dearest head nurse Karla was from El Salvador, she was so petite and pretty and kind, and talked about her daughter and husband.
    But I had my run-ins, but as I said in the end there were more good ones than bad.
    Maria of Spanish decent wanted the names of all the products I was using, so she could get some, and Stella also. They cleaned my bathroom with just bleach ( which I can tolerate) Stella even made me plunger coffee as a treat everyday.
    But it was a nightmare stay. Nurse Karla, said "I will never forget you" and there were tears, both her and I.
    I could not even turn in my bed for quite some time; that's when the nurse would massage some Be Releived across my back, and also near my hips. It did relieve the pain and help me sleep, and breathe. I was on oxygen, most days in the end due to the artificial fragrances getting into my room.

    I had 5 breaks in the pelvis, the tailbone was broken, virtually my left leg was broken off thrugh the pelvis like a when you break a drumstick off an chicken. I do have some extra bone there now which is throwing me off in all my balance a bit( I can feel it a lot) but others say they don't notice. I also had every rib broken on the left and a punctured lung and I think it was 4 broken on the right. The volar plate dislocation of middle finger right hand , and also the ring finger right hand. They are still all swollen and painful, with arthritis set in. A small process bone broken in my
    neck, and my spleen needed embolising. I am still having trouble near above my eyebrow where glass fragments still may be there they said. Then of course the sensitivity to atificial fragrances in the hospital situation.
    I was on 1 leg and crutches for 6 mths,finally got rid of the vertigo also.There are many other difficult things I am dealing with also, on the home front.
    Truly Cheryl, when Daniel brought the oil in it was an extra bonus. They also use it on Oliver now, with teething, and it calmed him down and he slept peacefully, even in Michelle's arms on a last visit.
    This is so long, I best stop, but thank you for your friendship and care, and your beautiful oils and the the way the show was yesterday, it was like a home run for all people who want the nasty toxic artificial fragrances off the shelves, and/or at least labelled to show how dangerous the chemicals are.

  199. Oils for trigger finger Review by Cheryl Finnie

    Hi, first of all I wanted to tell you about the success I have had with your products BE Relieved and BE Sport. I have a problem with my two thumbs which was diagnosed as trigger finger, and I was unable to bend one of my thumbs at all. I saw a specialist who gave me cortizone injections in both thumbs and this fixed the problem for about a month but unfortunately the pain and stiffness from trigger finger came back. I was told by the specialist that the only other treatment was an operation costing $3,ooo to $4,ooo. Luckily I saw cheryl on TVSN and purchased BE Relieved and BE Sport and to my amazement within a couple of weeks there is no swelling on the tendon which causes trigger finger and no pain, so a big thank you Cheryl for this wonderful product.

  200. Milroy's Syndrome and arthritis Review by Sue Plant

    I have been diagnosed with Milroy\'s Syndrome (congenital lymphodema). Will BE Lite help me with this problem?

    Thank you so much for that information. I am booked in to a clinic in Brisbane for treatment but it will probably not be for a few months as they are very busy. I want to do as much as possible to contain this problem in the meantime.

    I have been massaging BE Lite into my 'lumpy' areas for the last couple of nights and find I have to get up to the toilet in the early hours which is unusual for me. I am willing to give anything a try as my sister (19 years older than I am) also has this syndrome and she is now only able to walk very short distances and has very large and tight legs from ankle to thigh.

    I will probably try some on her legs too. She has arthritis and now uses (and swears by) BE Relieved. Actually all three of us (sisters) use BE Relieved regularly and wouldn't be without it.

    Thanks again for your help. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  201. I had torn a tendon in my foot Review by Jenny Meffert

    Six months ago I did a difficult walk in Tasmania and unfortunately did not wear the correct shoes. About two days later I realized that I had injured my right foot.

    When I eventually sought medical treatment I discovered I had torn a tendon in my foot. There was evidently an already existing weakness there due to my age, the fact that I walked a lot (form of exercise) and played golf.

    The treatment has been to prescribe orthotics which will be beneficial long term but are not helping the present very painful problem. The past six weeks I have been having regular injections of dexterous (hope that is correct spelling) to inflame the heel and therefore accelerate healing. My doctor tells me this is a more natural form of treatment and allows the body to heal itself.

    All well and good but it did not alleviate the pain.

    THEN I remembered my BE Sport and Relieved. Have been using the BE Sport 3 times a day and the BE Relieved at night and from the first day the relief was amazing. I can now walk without limping and the pain is now manageable.

    I realize that the oils cannot mend the tear in the tendon but while the medical treatment is doing that, I am now getting relief from the pain and am able to get on with my life. Hopefully in another six weeks I may be able to get back to my regular walking regime and return to golf.

    I thought you may be interested in how your oils have helped me over this difficult period. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  202. BE Relieved for use in nose Review by Carmen Taylor

    Cheryl I am just watching you on TVSN and you have have just a beautiful soul. My question is to you my other son has just had some pollyps removed from his nose it helped him breath more easily, he has to take rhinocort for good now, do you think the BE Relieved can help him if he applies it in the nostril area, will that help?

    I also gave the BE Calm to my other sceptic son and found out he uses every day thanks Cheryl. Also I applied BE Relieved to my son's dog, his ear was very red and infected he has those droopy ears, he a spoodle because of the hair in his ears I was applying every 2 hrs and by the end of the day the redness was nearly gone.

    Cya hope to hear from you when you have time cause I know that your very busy helping so may people. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  203. It's still there ... Review by Colin Johanson

    Just reading through the paperwork you sent with my order and found that my testamonial is still there, on the back page of customer comments. After all these years, and I wouldn't change a word of it.

    Moira McEwan (watched first show on TVSN on 5th February 2000)

    Dear Cheryl I was diagnosed with R.A. about 3 years ago. I was able to self-treat with natural remedies until I sustained a fairly serious neck injury. The pain and stress exacerbated the arthritis, which then put me on the merry-go-round of horrendous drug therapy – anti-inflammatory, anti malarial and cytotoxic injections of Methotrexate. These drugs did little more than provoke nasty side effects and worry me senseless about what other damage they may be causing. I managed to wean myself off them but of course the stiffness and lethargy remained. Imagine my surprise when one evening, while channel surfing, I happened upon Balanced Essentials – you were talking about BE Relieved and BE Sport. I have a long history of working in the cosmetics industry, but have never been a devotee of aromatherapy. I do, however, have a very strong belief in the power of crystals, so when you mentioned that each bottle is charged with its own piece of crystal, my interest peaked and I placed my first order. My pack arrived in 3 days and I haven’t looked back!

    I’m so impressed with this product! I can’t recommend it highly enough. After a few applications, the swelling between the joints in my fingers was markedly reduced and the stiffness in my wrists was gone. Even my neck and arm pain, which has been a constant companion, has been greatly relieved. One of the most interesting aspects of this wonderful product would have to be the effect it has on the senses. I am noticeably more calm, which could partly be due to the pain reduction, but I honestly believe that after much trial and error I have finally found what really works for me. I’ve always been a gold-and-diamonds kind of girl but the amethyst bracelet that came with the package, went on and has stayed on since the day it arrived. Each time I apply BE Relieved, I rub a little onto the beads just to keep it constant!

    Thank you so much for the relief of what can only be described as an insidious form of pain that only another arthritis sufferer can truly understand. To other sufferers who may be jaded from trying everything that comes on the market, only to be disappointed by false promises – “Do yourself a favour and get a rush of optimism. There is light at the end of the tunnel”. Best regards, Moira McEwan 5 March 2001

    P.S. As her partner I can vouch for the changes: in the decrease of Moira’s swollen joints; and the increase in her optimism and happiness. I’ve also had the BE Sport rubbed into my lower back and shoulder, where I suffer pain, with positive results. Most importantly, the beautiful aroma of Moira in bed is a huge contrast to being subjected to Tiger Balm, or worse, Deep Heat emanating from the other side of the bed. Your oils have very pleasant fragrances that can be worn at work or at home, without making others suffer anything but pleasure smelling them. As a “bloke” I’ll even rub BE Sport on before going to work. Cheers, Colin Johanson (Posted on 18/07/13)

  204. Invaluable for leg and foot cramps Review by Carol Inkson

    I buy BE Relieved for myself and have it on hand for almost all my aches and pains and it's invaluable for leg and foot cramps. I bought the second for a friend who lost her husband recently and suddenly, and I found out she suffers from Raynauds syndrome. I advised her to massage her feet and hands with BE Relieved and to put on some thermal gloves and socks at bedtime. Cold weather is the enemy of Raynauds. I am hoping this will ease the angst of this syndrome for her. If you like I will keep you posted. She has enough to cope with and am hoping this will help. Sometimes it's the little things others do which mean the the most. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  205. Update as promised Review by Carol Inkson

    I buy BE Relieved for myself and have it on hand for almost all my aches and pains and its invaluable for leg and foot cramps.

    Update as promised - I have heard back from my friend BE Relieved is working wonders and is helping with the pain of Reynaud's Syndrome - she also suffers badly from leg cramps it has also helped with this and she is thrilled to bits. Her close family (daughter) has also "gotten into the act' and they have tried it for various pain and skin care issues - this has prompted them to place an order. BE Relieved is also being used for a baby who is fussy and hard to settle for sleep at night. I suggested to try gently massaging the baby's feet with BE Relieved or BE Calm after bathing and feeding. Bub is off in land of nod in no time. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  206. Alternatives for Rheumatoid Arthritis Review by Anna Roumpanis

    To Cheryl from Balanced Essentials,
    Thank you for supplying my husband George with the “Relieved” all natural oil for pain and inflammation. George has been using it daily on his lower back where his muscles are strained from being a painter for 30 years, it is helping him immensely.

    I decided to try the oil also as I have Rheumatoid Arthritis throughout my entire body and when I over do things, which is all the time I swell up pretty quickly. I was amazed at how quickly the Relieved Oil helped me with both pain and inflammation.

    Over the years if I have swelled up I have taken prescription Voltaren which does eventually help but I don’t really like to take medication if I can help it so the Relieved Oil is a great solution. I will be mentioning it to my Rheumatologist because he is always interested in alternative methods to help inflammation.

    Once again Cheryl a big thank you for not only the oil but also all the information you provided George with. I will be sure to ask you if I need help in the future and I highly recommend your products. On a personal note it has been a pleasure chatting with you and getting to know you. (Posted on 18/07/13)

  207. Thank you for your product, BE Relieved. Review by Ayla Viana

    I received it when I needed it the most and I must say the instant I rubbed it on I felt so much better.
    The aroma relaxed me when I opened the bottle, I rubbed it on my stomach and lower back (the best I could) and the pain eased almost immediately.
    I was speaking to family and friends at a BBQ on the weekend and mentioned how good it was - needless to say the bottle was being passed around at the BBQ.
    Many thanks Cheryl.
