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 haven't been with Young Living for very long but my husband and I have been using the oils practically every day. My husband is diabetic and when I first found this website I asked for testimonials on diabetes. It has helped a lot.

My husband uses Lemongrass, Dill, Cinnamon Bark and also takes Carbozyme which has been helpful to control his blood sugar levels. Without the oils it would fluctuate and was hard to control.

But now with taking carbozyme before each meal and rubbing a few drops of each of Lemongrass, Dill and Cinnamon Bark on the pancreas area and feet daily, it has helped keep his levels in the normal range all day!

For myself I was finding myself getting very painful migraines everyday for about a month straight. When I got the oils I started using Peppermint. It helped a little but I found that for me what helped the most was the PanAway oil blend, rubbed at the base of the skull and on the forehead and behind my ears.

Also after reading some facts about the OTC medications that are sold in stores I stopped using them because of the harmful side effects and instead started using Young Living products. The oils are what helped with my migraines. I am not sure why the migraines had started, maybe too much stress and maybe sinus problems.

Thank you to everyone that responded to my post, it helped tremendously!

Happy oiling and God Bless.

2.Associated topics: diabetes — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link

The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
4.Associated topics: migraine — "We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
5.Associated topics: sinuses — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
6.Associated topics: migraine — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
7.Associated topics: blood-sugar,diabetes — "Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic [cholesterol-lowering] actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
8.Associated topics: blood-sugar,diabetes — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
