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 began using Young Living essential oils in September 2014. Having autoimmune issues, fall and winter always bring on a lupus flare and illness. I started using Thieves essential oil blend and all of the Everyday Oils by direct inhalation method.

After several weeks I began noticing that my energy level had increased, I had more endurance, and I seemed to have no type of illness at all. Then, while it was totally unavoidable, I put myself right in the middle of a bunch of kids with numerous respiratory illnesses. Well, I just knew in November that I would have the flu or bronchitis, as usual.

I started really inhaling the Thieves, Frankincense, Lemon, Peppermint, Purification, and Raven essential oils several times a day. To my amazement, I didn't get sick.

So in December I decided to add essential oils to support my immune system. To the arsenal I was already taking, I added Lavender and ImmuPower essential oils.

To this date, 1/27/15, I have not been ill -- not even one day. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you, Young Living. I feel like I have my life back.

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."Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] could be useful for second-line therapy to reduce the inflammatory feature of SLE [systemic lupus erythematosus]."Link
