Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

As a new member of Young Living Essential Oils, I was super excited to get my kit back in June and try these oils out on my husband and daughter. After all, the men in our lives are the biggest skeptics with everything we do, especially those "silly" purchases.

That first night, I immediately set up the diffuser, dropped in Lavender essential oil, and was relaxing on the bed reading a book, trying to drown out the snide comments my other half was making about my lovely new addiction. Yes, to me, this is now a full-blown addiction.

I let my husband laugh it out and have his fun picking on me. However, I kept reminding him, "Laugh at me now; but tomorrow when you wake up feeling amazingly refreshed, you will be thanking me non stop."

Sure enough, my husband woke up feeling like he got the best night's sleep in his whole life. He is also someone who cannot -- and I mean cannot -- go to sleep before midnight, so, when I felt him crawl into bed around 10:30 (an hour after diffusing), I knew it was a success!

On the second night, Lavender was already in the diffuser for an hour or so, and we were both in bed relaxing at 9:30 pm. As I took off my socks to apply Lavender and the Peace & Calming oil blend to my feet, I almost fainted when I heard my husband say, "Can you put some on my feet too? I have never slept so great in my life."

"Yes, honey, you can have some too!" It is an amazing feeling to have the support you need and want from your other half in all you do. My husband is now a firm believer in these amazing essential oils.

Just one night with a diffuser and some foot rubs will have your spouse joining the Young Living Essential Oils train too!
