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.

My son was born in November 2013, and I used Young Living essential oils on him daily. I diffused them in my home each day, and he has lived his first year of life without sickness! Other than teething or a little gas from what he might have eaten, my son has been the happiest baby alive!

The essential oils that I have used topically on my son daily:

1. DiGize blend clockwise on his tummy before bed nightly.
2. One drop of Frankincense under his tongue before bed nightly and an extra drop if we have been exposed to illness.
3. Lavender and Peace & Calming blend before naps and bedtime.

The essential oils that I have been diffusing daily:

1. Thieves blend from August to March.
2. Purification blend from April to July.

The essential oils that I have used for teething:

1. Copaiba directly on the gums.
2. Clove and Thieves blend for a little more numbing effect on the gums.
3. PanAway behind his ears to keep fluid off the ears and to help with teething discomfort.

I applied Thieves blend on my son's feet if we were exposed to sickness or were making a trip to the store. I also nursed him for his first year, and I drank 2 ounces of NingXia Red daily.

When my son was able to take a sippy cup at 9 months, I put 1/2 ounce of NingXia Red in his cup, diluted with distilled or filtered water. I started him on table food at 9 months, first with raw fruits and veggies. Then I introduced 12-grain wheat or einkorn wheat at 11 months. I also started giving him a sippy cup of almond milk at one year old.

At his one-year checkup, he weighed 21 pounds and was in the 75th percentile for his age. We have been very blessed to have a healthy baby!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."These results suggest that the volatile oil of ginger influences both cell-mediated immune response and nonspecific proliferation of T lymphocyte, and may exert beneficial effects in a number of clinical conditions, such as chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases."Link
2."Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
3.Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: "Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
4."DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5."Both clove and benzocaine gels had significantly lower mean pain scores than placebos. No significant difference was observed between clove and benzocaine regarding pain scores. Clove gel might possess a potential to replace benzocaine as a topical [anesthetic] agent before needle insertion."Link
6."Ginger root reduced the induced vertigo significantly better than did placebo."Link
7."Essential oils or their components placed in the ear canal can provide effective treatment of acute otitis media."Link
8."[We] evaluate[d] the efficacy of the Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] in improving cochlear flow and symptoms... for patients with Meniere's disease (MD), tinnitus, and cochlear hypoperfusion.... Symptoms of Meniere's disease [spontaneous vertigo, positional vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, pressure in the ear, unsteady gait], flow at cochlear level, and tinnitus improved in Pycnogenol subjects...."Link
9."[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
