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.

We were ready to give up on finding help for my husband's off-balance walking problem. He is 62 years old now, but he started having problems with walking like a drunk man about 15 years ago.

It wasn't bad at the beginning, but over the years it has really gotten bad. It is so bad that, when we walk on the sidewalk together, my husband will run into me several times or knock things off the wall.

He is not sick to his stomach, and the room does not spin; he simply just cannot walk straight -- and he does not drink alcohol. We have been to so many doctors for help but have gotten no answers.

Then one day my husband was talking to a friend who said that his daughter uses Young Living essential oils and had asked him to try Cypress essential oil for vertigo. My husband's friend has suffered with vertigo for years, off and on almost every week. He said that he puts a drop of the Cypress essential oil behind each ear every morning, and he never has vertigo anymore.

Needless to say, my husband has been applying Cypress essential oil behind both ears now. At first he only put it behind each ear in the morning, and it did help a lot. But then he decided to use it morning and night, and that has helped even more.

I cannot say it has 100% made it better, but it is at least 75% better. We are so happy with the results. We now have put a roller ball on my husband's bottle of Cypress, and he rolls it behind his ears morning and night. I hope this helps someone because we had searched for years and were so happy to get help.
