Kara Reyburn is one of the world’s youngest PhD graduates. But her early success is not without pain and suffering…
At a young age, Kara went through a traumatic episode that would change her life forever.
“I was raised by my grandparents after my parents got divorced.”
“My grandpa was a pilot and the kindest and most loving man.”
Every year on Kara’s birthday, her grandfather would take her flying. But on her 8th birthday, something terrible happened…
Whilst in the air, Kara recalls:
“I was soaring! Flying was my favorite thing in the world.”
“Suddenly, we were totally blinded by thick fog.”
“I froze in complete and utter fear.”
Things took a bad turn very quickly when Grandpa Reyburn lost control of the plane and was forced to make an emergency landing. Without proper visibility, their plane crashed into a hillside.
“My grandpa died on the spot. He saved my life by shielding my body.” - Kara
Kara was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries. Thankfully, her physical wounds would heal, but the traumatic incident and her grandpa’s death left a mark on her.
She started having nightmares and severe anxiety. Every time she slept, she would wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat. Kara also had troubles focusing in school and seemed forgetful.
Her doctor diagnosed her with PTSD.
“Memory loss, flashbacks, and loss of interest in life are symptoms of her PTSD.”
“This is triggered by her terrifying accident and worsened by her inability to accept the truth of her grandpa’s death.” - Dr. Goodman
One day, Kara’s principal called Grandma Reyburn in to recommend home schooling for Kara.
But Grandma Reyburn refused to give up on her only granddaughter. She took her for counselling, art therapy, and psychiatric help. But Kara could not concentrate for more than 10 minutes, and therapy was not working as she refused to open up.
Widowed, Grandma Reyburn struggled to pay off the mounting medical bills. With no hope in sight, she had no choice but to stop Kara’s treatments.
One day, Grandma Reyburn’s friend, Sue, came for a visit, the house filled with the soothing smell of Sue’s perfume, and Kara changed instantly.
“I was shocked! For the first time since the accident, Kara became a lot calmer.” - Grandma Reyburn
It turned out that Sue was wearing a homemade mint blend perfume oil. Intrigued, Grandma Reyburn asked for a bottle of Sue’s homemade perfume oil.
She started to massage the oil into Kara’s temple for 10 minutes every day. It was the only thing that could calm her down.
Amazingly, Kara started showing signs of improvement. She stopped having nightmares or panic attacks and could finally pay attention and remember things at a glance.
“At that time, she was only 13. Finally, she showed an interest in something. I was so happy!” - Grandma Reyburn
Kara took up an interest in aerospace and absorbed complex aerospace models with ease. Then she locked herself in the garage for two months.
“Initially, I got worried. Then I realized she was building an airplane completely from memory. Just to commemorate her late grandfather!” - Grandma Reyburn
Kara’s growth was astounding! With her talent, she was offered a scholarship to study Aeronautical Engineering. She completed her PhD in a record of 3 years.
Amazed, Dr. Eric Wright from the Neuroscience Department reached out to Kara. He had been spending years working to unlock the brain’s hidden potential.
Curious herself, Kara suspected that her success had something to do with Sue’s homemade perfume oil. So, she gave Dr. Wright a sample of the oil for lab analysis.
It tested high in menthol found in a unique variety of peppermint called menta piperita from Japan. According to Dr. Wright:
“Low levels of neurotransmitters in the brain are associated with anxiety and poor cognitive performance. True enough, the menthol in peppermint helps increase neurotransmitters in the brain.”
“The scent acts as a catalyst, triggering the olfactory bulbs in the nose, which stimulates the part of the brain that controls memory and learning. This improves concentration, memory retention, and problem-solving. And supresses stress and anxiety hormones.”
Dr. Wright proceeded to develop a special steam distillation technique to extract the purest peppermint essential oil.
According to Dr. Wright:
“Mivea™ is a natural way to enhance cognition and destress. A typical scent can only trigger up to 249 olfactory receptors, whereas the scent of Mivea™ can trigger up to 587 different olfactory receptors.”
“There are a number of ways to use this boosting formula. You can diffuse the oil, or apply it topically around your temple, neck area, or wrist for a more immediate effect.”
“Over 97.9% of our clinical trial patients reported increased clarity, relaxation, memory retention within a month. Even our dementia patients showed great signs of improvement.”
Dr. Wright invited Kara for a test.
“It’s a better scent than from my childhood.”
“Upon first contact, I felt immediately alert and relaxed at the same time.”
“As a PTSD patient, this scent saved my life.”
“I used to not be able to concentrate for more than 10 minutes and I had troubles remembering.”
“Now I am able to contain my anxiety and remain receptive.”
“My goal is to revolutionize airplane safety, so no one has to go through what I did.” - Kara
With a small addition of potent peppermint to Kara’s life, she was able to find the laser focus needed to succeed without raising her stress levels. With Mivea™, Kara’s success can now be shared by everyone!
