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.


In June, my hubby's lab results showed he was pre-diabetic (A1C was 6.1) and his cholesterol was 206. The doctor immediately wrote a prescription for that drug you see on TV with all those scary side effects. So, I asked my hubby to hold off and let me do some oil research.

Soon thereafter we called the doctor and said we would like to try a diet change and the oil blend I put together. I decided on a blend using several drops of Lemongrass and Clove oils in a capsule twice a day.

Eventually we switched to using a roller bottle because he thought ingesting the capsule was bothering his stomach. We later added several drops of the Release oil blend in a 10ml roller bottle.

This morning, during the follow up phone appointment, the doctor wanted to talk to ME! He said that these are the kinds of phone calls he LIKES to make. He said the combination of diet, activity and oil support resulted in remarkable results (A1C is now 5.9 and needs a little more work. Cholesterol is 188 now) and he wanted to congratulate me for supporting my hubby!

We are continuing the course of the essential oils and will be adding several drops of Cinnamon Bark and Ocotea oils to the blend. We will be retesting again in December.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: diabetes — "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
2.Associated topics: hypoglycemia,blood-sugar,cholesterol,diabetes — "Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic [cholesterol-lowering] actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
3.Associated topics: hypoglycemia,blood-sugar,cholesterol,diabetes — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
4.Associated topics: hypoglycemia,diabetes — "Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
5.Associated topics: hypoglycemia,cholesterol,diabetes — "Z. officinale [ginger] has been used to control diabetes and dyslipidemia [high cholesterol].... The marked rise in body weights, glucose, insulin, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids and phospholipids in serum of the rats that followed 6 weeks of high-fat diet treatment were significantly reduced by Z. officinale treatment.... The present results provide scientific evidence to substantiate the traditional use of Z. officinale in preventing metabolic disorders."Link
6.Associated topics: cholesterol — "D-limonene is one of the most common terpenes in nature. It is a major constituent in several citrus oils.... Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link
