Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia (FMS) in July after six months of aching that had gotten so bad that I would break down into tears.

The week that I finally got the diagnosis, I started experiencing the legendary "fibro fog". There was a month in which it was so bad that I once forgot where I was. I was having a hard time putting together words, and my memory was shot.

Looking on for fibro testimonials, someone had mentioned their find for fibro fog. Praise the Lord for that!

I now apply Peace & Calming essential oil blend on my wrists and behind my ears first thing in the morning, and the confusion and disorientation go away within seconds... for the entire day! Thank you, Young Living, for giving me back my brain!

Also, for the discomfort in my hands and feet, I made a relieving cream using the following essential oils:

5 drops Wintergreen
5 drops Cypress
4 drops Blue Spruce
2 drops Clove
