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 have a friend who recently ordered several Young Living essential oils to deal with various issues. This is her first experience with these oils. One of her main issues is insomnia. She has taken two sleep-aid pills every night for the last 18 years. Even with the sleep-aid pills, there are nights she has trouble sleeping, and some mornings she feels like she never even slept at all.

I instructed her to start out with Peace & Calming essential oil blend and Lavender essential oil. So the first night she used essential oils she rubbed a couple of drops of Peace & Calming on her feet and then swiped her hands across her forehead and pillow. She diffused Lavender at her bedside. She did not take any sleeping pills that first night.

The next day she told me that she started getting drowsy about 10 minutes after applying the oils. She said that she had a tingly feeling that kind of crawled up her body from her toes to her belly. It wasn't a bad feeling. She said it kind of felt like a very deep relaxation sensation. She slept most of the night and only woke once.

The next night she used a little more Peace & Calming and upped the amount of Lavender she diffused, but she still took a sleeping pill. She said she slept so well she was late for work the next morning, but she felt rested!

My friend has resorted back to using the sleeping pills at this time because she is still waking up during the night, but she is only using one instead of the normal two. At this time, she says she is getting a much better night's sleep overall and feels more rested in the mornings than she has felt in years.

I talked with her again last night, and she said she is continuing to experiment with the oils to see what her perfect combination and ratio is. Her goal is to eventually get off the pills completely.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
3.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,sleep,insomnia-/-sleeplessness,anxiety-/-worry — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
4.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings,anxiety-/-worry — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
5.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
6.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
7.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
8.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings,stress-/-tension-/-burnout,sleep,anxiety-/-worry — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
