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.

My husband woke up very early one morning with a headache, and pain in his neck and shoulders. He had quadruple by-pass heart surgery ten years ago, and there is always a concern that arteries and veins may be clogging up again, including the carotid artery in the neck area.
His discomfort increased as the day progressed, but he didn't mention it to me until about 5 pm when he finally told me he couldn't sit for more than a few minutes at a time because he was so miserable.

I immediately went to my oils and took the PanAway oil blend from the case. I put it on the back of his neck, base of his skull and on the bottom of his two big toes, and within 2 minutes he sat down in his chair, pain free, and fell asleep for two hours. When he awoke, he was fine and the pain didn't return.

He recently had an ultrasound done on the veins and arteries around his heart and neck areas, as well as in his legs, (he is type 2 diabetic) and the technician was amazed that he'd had diabetes for 21 years, because his veins and arteries were very soft and pliable.

There was no hardening, which would indicate obstructions and/or clots and his blood flowed freely in all areas. This was a much better result then he had received when he had been similarly tested a year ago.

He has never been overweight, and has always been a healthy eater, and the only addition we have made to his life style is that he takes NingXia Red juice twice daily. We use several oils on his feet to support his system every morning.

Now he doesn't hesitate to let me know if he has a problem, and we deal with it quickly, using the appropriate oils.

Our quality of life has been enhanced with Young Living oils and nutritional products.

We are very grateful to Gary Young for his dedication in creating superior quality oils and products that help us overcome health compromising conditions that are common our world today.

1.Associated topics: headache — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link

Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."Link
4.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
5.Associated topics: muscle-spasm-/-twitch,headache — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator....

7.Associated topics: headache — "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
8.Associated topics: headache — "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
