After devastating news in January 2017, she spent 8 months researching and writing about PTSD, the Olfactory System, and Essential Oils. With her precious daughter being diagnosed with PTSD which catapulted into multiple health issues, her determination was driven by love and concern to find a way to help her. Through this journey, Rehne met some amazing people, Valerie Pallotta who lost her son Josh to PTSD and has become a very dear loved friend and two amazing Vets that volunteered to test blends for PTSD. They bonded as many do with PTSD. PTSD, once known as shell shock or battle fatigue, was once that to only relate to war but now we know that it is trauma, on many scales, that can create PTSD.
