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 noticed one day when I woke up that my face was numb on the right side. It was like novacain when it is wearing off and tingling.

Initially I thought I might be having a stroke, but after going to the ER, it was determined it was Bell's palsy. The doctor told me that it would continue to get worse over the next two weeks, and then would more than likely not get any better for several months and even up to a year or more.

So I immediately went home and looked up what oils to take for it. There are quite a few listed in my oils desk reference, but I looked for the oils I had on hand. The book said to put 1-2 drops, neat, on the facial nerve in front and behind the ears and any areas of the face that are affected, 3-5 times per day, until the symptoms come to an end.

I immediately started making use of my Helichrysum, Sandalwood, Peppermint, and Deep Relief roll on. I put them on neat as suggested, and did that at least 3 times per day.

By the end of the first week the droop of my mouth had stopped getting worse. By the end of the second week there was even more improvement. By the end of the third week there was no sign whatsoever that I had ever had Bell's palsy. It was astounding!

I had read that a person can have a relapse/setback if under a lot of stress, so I still put the oils on about once or twice a week for good measure. I have been a believer in the quality of Young Living's essential oils for about 20 years, but this recovery astounded me!
