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.


One of our daughters and her 5 children have been visiting us at our summer home for the past 5 days. Yesterday my grandson (age 13 months) came down with a high fever. We used several oils on him and then experimented with the new NingXia Red juice. Within 5 minutes his fever broke and he was doing fine.

Today at 4 am, his mother came in our bedroom to get our oils and work on him again, for the fever had returned. A few minutes later we heard a thud and ran to the kitchen to learn that he had fallen off the kitchen counter onto the floor.

We saw our daughter sitting on the floor sobbing and holding her crying baby. We immediately knew we had three situations to deal with -- a fever and a fall - and a hysterical daughter.

My daughter went to work and checked him over for anything broken or unusual. Then using the oils neat (undiluted) to break his fever, she used Spearmint (a little milder that Peppermint). She also used Peppermint along with Melaleuca Ericifolia (milder than Melaleuca Alternifolia), Fir, the Peace & Calming and DiGize oil blends.

Not knowing whether his problem was viral or bacterial, she used the oils that would help go after both. She worked his little chest, tummy, feet, throat, and head. His crying subsided, and the temperature started to do down. The fall and trauma were a concern, so she used Frankincense on the brainstem and a couple of drops massaged on his head.

Then she gave him NingXia Red juice, diluted in distilled water, which he drank. His fever dropped completely, and his crying stopped. We used the Trauma Life and Peace & Calming blend on his mother to help her calm down as well. He and his mother went back to bed. It is now a little after 9 am, mother and son are still sleeping.

The new NingXia Red is amazing. We are seeing this product as a "Magic Bullet". Word is coming in, and our experiences are showing the following: Increasing energy, curbing hunger, controlling headaches, and now helping with a "bug" that affecting a grandchild. Not only does it help that, but he likes it too!

As for us, we stayed up and counted our blessings for what these products are doing for our children and their children. This week with 5 grandchildren here, grandma's oils have really had a workout... cuts, bruises, smashed fingers, sunburns, burns. You name it, we have seen it!

My, what a difference Young Living is making in our families' lives. Thank you, Gary Young, for teaching us there is a better way. Thank you for providing us the tools and teaching us to take personal responsibility for our lives. And thank you for providing the educational training to get us to where we are.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: viruses — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
2.Associated topics: viruses — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
3.Associated topics: bacteria — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
4.Associated topics: bacteria — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
5.Associated topics: bacteria — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
6.Associated topics: bacteria — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link
7.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
8.Associated topics: bacteria — "Streptococcus pyogenes [strep] plays an important role in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis.... [T]hyme, cinnamon, lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, oregano, clove, palmarosa, or cajeput [melaleuca] EOs [essential oils] are known to be active against Streptococcus pyogenes, while oregano, basil, mint [peppermint], rosemary, and lavender EOs are known to inhibit another Gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus [staph].... We showed that cinnamon presented the higher activity against S. pyogenes compared to the other EOs tested.... 14 [essential oils] showed antibacterial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes.... Among them Cinnamomum verum [cinnamon bark], Cymbopogon citratus [Xiang Mao], Thymus vulgaris CT thymol [thyme], Origanum compactum [oregano], and Satureja montana [Mountain Savory] essential oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity. The in vitro results reported here suggest that, for patients suffering from bacterial throat infections, if aromatherapy is used, these essential oils, considered as potential antimicrobial agents, should be preferred."Link
