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 am challenged with a disease called essential tremors. There is no cure and no specific drugs for this disease but there are drugs that help to lessen the effects of the shakes. I chose not to take the mega drugs because of the side effects.

Through a very dear friend I was introduced to quality essential oils. I am very much a researcher so away I went to read web sites, visit health stores and reading all I could to get informed. Young Living became my choice of oils for several reasons:

* Their seed to seal promise of purity
* Their personal involvement in the growing process
* Their careful processing of the oils
* Their commitment to education in bringing oils to your needs
* The amazing support groups who encourage, teach and support your desire for a healthier lifestyle

So far the Lavender, Frankincense and Stress Away oils have helped ease my Essential Tremor symptoms. I just use one drop of each and apply topically. I'm grateful to be able to use something so natural that brings me some calm.

I start my morning with a drop of Frankincense behind each ear and a drop of Lavender on my wrist. Then I rub my wrist together and take a sniff of the lavender. I'm an early bird so my shower is usually 3 hours later.

My next application after my shower is involves applying the Stress Away oil blend on the back of my neck. Again I put a drop of Frankincense behind my ears and a drop of Lavender on my wrist.

Last week I started putting a drop of the Thieves oil blend on the bottom of my foot. The first few weeks I found myself reapplying about every 3 hours but now I seem to be going 5-6 hours and still feeling great.

Before bed I do the same routine as after my shower, but I also run my diffuser, which came with the Premium Starter Kit, with Lavender and the Purification oil blend. I keep my diffuser next to my bed. This is my time to clear my head and just relax, sometimes I read and sometimes I just enjoy the fragrance and peace. This honestly relaxes me so much! I run the diffuser about 20 minutes.

A few weeks ago I started putting a little bit of Lavender on my pillow and its awesome! When I occasionally wake up in the middle of the night and smell it, puts me right back to dream land.

So here are the changes I have experienced. I haven't dropped anything in 3 weeks. My tremors show their ugliness much less. My "no-no" head movements have eased off. My internal jitters have practically disappeared, maybe 3-4 incidents since I started the oils. When I'm around chaos or stress I'm very calm now. The panic feeling is gone.

So all in all I'm feeling great, people close to me comment on the difference, I sleep soundly, I'm much happier, and I have more energy to get up and go.

I could not have been more blessed to have come across Young Living oils!
