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 had my first experience with essential oils the day I came down with the terrible flu. I woke up one morning with dizziness, nausea and feeling very weak.

I called my neighbour to ask her if she could take my two dogs outside, (since I was in no condition to do so). When she heard I wasn't well, Josephine came up with her diffuser and case of essential oils. She gave me one drop of DiGize on my tongue and told me to continue taking one drop of DiGize every hour. Wanting to feel better I did exactly what she told me to do.

She then put three drops of Thieves in the diffuser placed it next to my bed, and went for a walk with the dogs.

Within the hour my nausea and dizziness went away, I couldn't believe that I was feeling better so quickly. At that point I knew I needed to start using the oils on a regular basis.

That day I purchased a Premium Starter Kit, became a wholesale distributor. Shortly thereafter I ordered a second diffuser which, I have on my night table by my bed, and use every night.

I have also mentioned the Young Living products to my friends. They have since ordered the Premium Starter Kit too, and love using the oils on a regular basis!
