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 started using Young Living oils about 1.5 years ago when I signed up to be a member. At that time I would go thru the day with a stiff neck and shoulders. It made me very irritable because it never went away. I also experienced sleeplessness because of the pain and was getting more and more headaches.

I took more and more Ibuprofen or Acetameniphen only to not have it do any good. My blood pressure was up and I had become a recluse.

When I received my oils in the mail, I opened them up and started smelling each one. Amazing!

That night I took one drop of the Stress Away, and PanAway oil blends, along with Lavender and Peppermint oils, and layered them on my neck and shoulders prior to going to bed. I slept the whole entire night and woke up with NO stiffness!

I did this every night for a month. Then I would start to forget to apply the oils every night and it got to where I was oiling up just two nights a week. Still no stiffness and the rest of my problems went away too.

However, I still have some stress on occasion to deal with. When I feel really pent up I put a drop or two of Cedarwood and Stress Away oils on the bottoms of my feet. I don't have to use the oils as frequently as I did, but when I experience something new, I just get out my oils and start working on it. I now can get through the day, week and month without the use of over-the-counter products.

I love Young Living and now use their products for just about everything I can: cleaning, personal care and even my animals.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sleep,insomnia,headache — "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: headache — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
3.Associated topics: blood-pressure — "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
4.Associated topics: sleep,headache,blood-pressure — "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
5.Associated topics: headache — "We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
6.Associated topics: headache — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
7.Associated topics: headache — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
8.Associated topics: sleep,insomnia — "[T]he lavender fragrance had a beneficial effect on insomnia and depression in women college students."Link
