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 was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils and NingXia Red juice in March 2007. I was looking for a natural way to deal with the pain I had been suffering with fibromyalgia since 2005.

I used to hurt the worse in the morning, aching so bad I could barely move. After the first bottle of NingXia Red I realized how much better I felt. Then I learned of the oils for pain including the PanAway oil blend, Lemongrass and Lavender. These all help with the deep muscle aches associated with fibromyalgia.

I learned that acidosis, the state of pH in our bodies that is too acidic, is a starting place for many ailments, so I chose to avoid coffee, sugar and MSG (monosodium glutamate, a food additive). If I needed something sweet I would choose fruit, toast with honey or nuts drizzled with real maple syrup.

I also started drinking more water, to which I would add oils to, including Peppermint, Lemon or Grapefruit. After just 2 months of these changes I have increased energy and a significant reduction of pain.

I can now wake up in the mornings and move freely. I have also lost 16 lbs.

Many thanks to God and to the people of Young Living.
