Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have been operating a child care for the past thirty five years. Of late it has been tough with the number of viruses the children have arrived with. In 2007 a family brought in a virus which infected the entire child care. In our modern society parents do not have the privilege of staying home from work when a child is sick. We only turn away children with fevers and flu symptoms or contagious diseases.

This past year, a Grandparent introduced me to Young Living. We started diffusing Thieves oil in the child care, and using Ravensara and Raven directly on the children as they surfaced with runny noses or coughs. This was done with written permission from the parents of the individual children.

From the time we started applying the essentials oils and diffusing we have experienced not one lost day to child care do to illness.

The wellness of all the children has been phenomenal. While I was away at the 2008 Rise to Excellence, staff discontinued the diffusing. Upon my return we had a toddler with strep and a second family with thrush. Needless to say the first thing I did was bring out the oils. The children are well on their way to good health once again.

I can not possibly share the total improvment we have enjoyed in health with all of the small children we care for.

One little toddler who had been on a nebulizer since birth was able to exist without it after been introduced to the essiential oils and being taken off of dairy. Thank you D. Gary Young!
