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.


I am so excited about using essential oils from Young Living. I just received my Premium Starter Kit 2 weeks ago. Before I ever ordered it I was very skeptical if using these essential oils really worked. I have never had any experience with them personally.

I have a friend who has been telling me about how well they work. She tried to get me to sign up as a distributor almost a year ago. I just did not feel it was time. I had my doubts.

For several months my daughter has progressively been getting worse with back and chest acne. She has been on a prescription cream which she applies topically twice a day, as well as an antibiotic that she takes by mouth once a day. This costs about $100 for a 30- to 45-day supply.

We were not having much success with clearing this acne up, and it was getting so painful! We were running out of options. I do not want to put my daughter on that powerful medicine you take every day of your life. So I ordered the therapeutic grade essential oil starter kit from Young Living.

I had a friend tell me that the Purification essential oil blend was great for her acne. So we started using it morning and night, along with my daughter continuing to stay on the medicine. Much to my surprise, I could tell a difference in the first 3 days.

Now almost 2 weeks later her acne is almost dried up! I would not have had that response with just medication only. There has to be something to these essential oils!

Since my Premium Starter Kit came with 11 different essential oils, I decided to start using them for other purposes. I have had headaches almost every day. I started using Peppermint essential oil and the headaches went away faster than they showed up! Peppermint even helped with tummy issues.

I also started having sleep issues about 2 months ago. There are essential oils that have even helped with that! To my GREAT surprise, I am so tickled about using essential oils. My daughter and I are true believers now!
