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 had put on about 30 pounds due to emotional eating and not caring about anything including myself. I started to take care of myself again and my goal was to lose some weight. I started drinking the Balance Complete with the Digest + Cleanse pills and NingXia Red juice as meal substitutes. I did this for about a month to jump start my system.

I also started putting a drop of Grapefruit and a drop of Lemon in a bottle of water and drinking about 5 - 6 of those a day. I stopped drinking diet pop. The weight started coming off. I never felt deprived. I would still eat whatever I wanted and found that I did not want the junk food.

I started in April of 2007 and by September I had lost 30 pounds. I am now trying to lose another 10 pounds that I have carried forever. This is taking a little longer, but I am not thinking about the scale. As a matter of fact I weigh myself very rarely. I know it will happen and if it doesn't it's okay because I feel wonderful and that is all that matters.

I am a whole new person with the use of Young Living oils and supplements.
