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 my independent distributors sent me a testimonial so strong that I felt compelled to share it with everyone. She is a Naturopathic Doctor in Mississippi. You never know when life is going to present you with a health challenge such as this. We are very lucky to have these pure oils to assist us in staying healthy.

Here is her testimonial:

I have trouble sending in testimonials, so would you mind posting this one for me Thanks.

About 5 or 6 years ago, I had a life and death experience that is ever engraved in my mind. I'm not going to go into details about the episode that led into my experience, so to shorten it, I had been bitten by a tick and had gotten blood poisoning, which led to becoming septic.....which in most cases results in death.

I was a very sick puppy for about 2 weeks. I had a wonderful allergist which gave me excellent directions on how to combat it along with an allopathic prescription and herbs. He informed me that if I didn't get better within 24 hours, he was putting me into the hospital.

Needless to say, with a fever, a swollen foot and leg, (where tick bite was) and awful red streaks shooting throughout my entire body and along those streaks, open sores, I looked pretty bad.

Well, guess what? It happened again to me last week!!! How could such a person be so lucky? But there was now a difference. I HAVE OILS!!

I just about freaked my husband out, when he came home and I showed him my body full of red streaks shooting from yet another tick bite. I told him ... "I'm in trouble again." He wanted to rush me to the hospital. I told him, "No way, let me handle it for at least 2 days and if I cannot stop this, then I'll go".

I had Oregano, Thyme, and the Purification oil blend to put on the tick bite and rub out through the streaks. I also had Rehemogen. (I look to it as a blood purifier.) I dosed myself every 2 hours while awake. And if I woke up during the night, I dosed myself then also.

I do not know if you can print this sentence, but here goes...the streaks were so bad on my body, that when they ran into my breast nipple, it was solid black (couldn't look at myself, made me feel queasy).

This was all on a Monday. By Thursday, my streaks were gone.

Praise Ha Shem for Young Living Oils! My husband said to me, "I guess you know what your doing."


As Dr. Stewart says, God didn't put Adam and Eve in a cave, or in a high-rise, he put them in a GARDEN, surrounded by everything that they needed to be healthy His medicine was meant to be used in the form of plants in His kingdom.

1.Associated topics: infection — "[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
2.Associated topics: infection — "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
3.Associated topics: infection — "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

5.Associated topics: infection — "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
6.Associated topics: infection — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
7.Associated topics: infection — "[One] method employed for wound healing is the application of lavender oil. Due to its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties, it is thought to prevent wound infections and to play a role in reducing pain by lowering inflammation.... Lavender oil is known to have antibacterial, antifungal, sedative, and/or antidepressant effects.... In addition to its antimicrobial effects, the anti-inflammatory analgesic properties of lavender oil have also been emphasized... The use of L. Angustifolia [lavender] is particularly recommended in chronically infected wounds due to its immune-stimulating and antimicrobial effects. There are also reports that lavender oil reduces scar tissue."Link
8.Associated topics: infection — "Tea tree oil (TTO) (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been used recently as an effective topical application for the treatment of skin infections due to a variety of aetiological microbial agents, including mainly bacterial infections. We detail... the successful treatment with TTO of a paediatric patient with warts on her right middle finger. TTO was applied topically once daily to the lesions for 12 days, with a successful outcome, including complete re-epithelization of the infected areas. The case highlights the potential use of TTO in the treatment of common warts due to human papilloma virus."Link
