Rehne Burge was a medical auditor, as well as an Anatomy & Physiology instructor.
Through her work, she had become very convinced about the connection between our minds and bodies.
When this connection becomes clear to us, so many potential avenues of wellbeing can open up. For Rehne, one new avenue was Aromatherapy—it made perfect sense for her to study essential oils and earn her Aromatherapy Certification!
Rehne learned about the ways that essential oils can calm inflammation and ease mental and emotional stress at the same time. (That’s such a fascinating relationship . . . physical pain can often lead to emotional and mental stress . . . which can lead to more physical pain . . . which leads to more stress . . . it is a very unpleasant cycle!)
She learned which essential oils are ideal for joint pain and how to use them, which oils can benefit nerve pain (like sciatic nerve pain), which are useful for short-term issues (like a sprained ankle) and which are good friends for someone dealing with chronic pain (like ongoing joint pain in wrists and fingers).
Rehne decided to specialize in pain management.
Since then, she has used essential oils to help others, and to soothe her own issues—from fibromyalgia, to sciatic nerve damage, to hip damage, to back surgery.
When we asked her about some of the most amazing results she has seen with essential oils, she told us this story . . .
“Some of the most amazing results became clear when my 90-year-old client could get out of bed without pain. With conifer oils and plai, we came up with a perfect blend for her. She has compressed fractures all down her little spine, and this is a huge accomplishment.”
Wow . . . those are amazing results!
Rehne has also begun using essential oils to support people with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Since Rehne and her daughter both experience PTSD, this is an especially personal and important use of Aromatherapy for her. She has poured herself into doing extensive research, and has given talks about the topic to help spread the awareness of what a supportive presence essential oils can have as people cope and heal.
Rehne runs Soul Essentials Duo, where she makes custom blends for clients, and has a product line of organic, handmade products for issues like calming anxiety, motivation, pain relief, transitioning through menopause, and more. (If you look at her website, it’s clearly a place where her creativity, expertise, and love for helping others come together!) She is also the Director for Louisiana for NAHA (the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy).
Do you feel called to help others with essential oils?
There are so many ways you can make a difference in others’ lives. You can specialize in pain management and create a business, like Rehne. You can specialize in making all-natural skin care, formulating natural perfumes, or creating blends for emotional balance for people who experience anxiety.
And that is just the beginning—you can create your own website, write a blog, write books, be a consultant, teach classes in massage studios or natural clinics, or help others use essential oils safely for their families.
It all starts with education!
