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 Ethan (age 13 months) came down with a high fever. We used several oils on him and then experimented with the new NingXia Red. 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 Ethan 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.

Shauna 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, Peace & Calming, and DiGize.

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, diluted in distilled water, which he drank. His fever dropped completely, and his crying stopped. We used Trauma Life and Peace & Calming 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 a.m., and 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" of a grandchild. Not only does it help that, but he likes it too!

As for Shauna and me, 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.
