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 have been diagnosed with migraines many times. It started when I was 7 years old. I have had MRIs and CTs of the head to ensure the diagnosis was correct. Most of the time it is one sided and my eyeball feels like it is going to blow out of my head. The nausea and vomiting sometimes come along for the ride and it is awful. Just totally debilitating.

I cannot be around noise or light and therefore it takes days away from my life at times. I have tried many methods for relief including meds, daith piercings (part of the ear), botox in my head, massage, etc. You name it, I've tried it.

I got my Starter Kit from Young Living last year and it totally changed my life. I got the kit hoping to make my house smell nice, I was sure the oils wouldn't help me. I didn't understand the therapeutic value of the oils. But when I got my first migraine, I put them to the test.

I stared out with Peppermint and PanAway. I applied a drop or two of each and, within minutes, I could see clearly and the pain was dissipating. I thought wow, what a coincidence!! Next migraine the same thing happened.

I am still astonished when the oils work even though I know they do. I'll get a super awful head pain, where I can barely move and put my oils on my forehead, neck, and behind the ears and within minutes literally I can function. It is crazy!!

I also have a head pain oil roller with 10 drops of Lavender, Peppermint, and Frankincense. But when it's a really bad one I apply PanAway and Peppermint oils, neat, with some Copaiba to enhance them.

So now I am super excited about these 100% pure, #1 in the world Young Living oils! I am so passionate because they truly changed my life and the lives of so many of my loved ones!
