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.


Sometimes when I am overrun with thoughts, and scatterbrained about a negative situation, I fixate on it and can't let it go. This often happens at night time. Prior to using Young Living Essential Oils, I would stay up all night long, on my phone or computer, trying to find ways to distract myself enough to fall asleep.

I will tell you my about my experience with the Peace & Calming oil blend.

One night I had to call in sick to work. At the time, my employer was not very understanding of this, so I used to stay up panicking about getting in trouble from her. I would toss and turn, get out of bed, go for a walk, make food, do laundry and even try and read a book. All of that activity made it worse.

I sat up in bed and rubbed 2 drops of Peace & Calming on my forehead. I sat up in bed and inhaled the aroma from my hands, and started doing what I like to call 'Yoga breathing'. Deep inhale, deep exhale. I started to notice my body work in a rhythm of peacefulness.

I suddenly felt this 'zen' state come about, my muscles were not tight, my mind slowed down and I could feel myself naturally relaxing. Eventually I fell asleep. When I woke up I was so rested and did not fixate on calling in sick.

I absolutely love this oil and highly highly recommend that you try it for yourself!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sleep,insomnia — "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
2.Associated topics: relaxation — "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
3.Associated topics: sleep — "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

In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
