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.

When EndoFlex essential oil blend was on special (20% off) to celebrate Young Living's anniversary, I decided to look it up and considered trying it. I do not have endocrine or thyroid issues that I know of, but they do run in my family.

However, I definitely do have problems with my adrenals. I used to have a very stressful job as a prosecutor, and my naturopath said that my adrenals were shot. At this time, I was waking up tired every day and struggling with low energy.

My periods were also irregular with 31- to 38-day cycles... always different. I was trying to get pregnant, so the irregular cycles were driving me crazy. The fact that the cycles were further apart than normal was also a bummer because it meant that my opportunities to get pregnant were more spread out.

I ordered the EndoFlex essential oil blend and started using it every morning. I applied one drop right on the area of my adrenals and a drop on the Vita Flex points on my feet for the adrenal glands.

I immediately noticed that I had more energy. I also started applying Clarity essential oil blend to my temples every morning, and that helped me with thinking clearly and feeling more alert.

Here is the weird thing that I am not sure can be attributed to the EndoFlex or not. The first day that I applied the EndoFlex happened to be day 28 of my cycle. And I ended up getting my period later that day. It might be a coincidence, but I was pretty happy to have a regular cycle for once.

I continued applying the EndoFlex to the area of my adrenals every day. My period stayed regular (28 days), and within one month I was pregnant. Yay!
