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 aunt was diagnosed with a middle ear infection, both by her GP and a Chinese Traditional Medicine Practioner after she started vomiting and experiencing nausea every time she tried to walk.

It was really debilitating, but the doctors could only advise her to rest and wait it out. To make matters worst, she started hearing a continuous ringing in the ear as well.

At the time, I had read about the wonderful properties of Helichrysum oil, but only had the Brain Power oil blend that contained it. So I showed my aunt how to apply a drop of Brain Power on the ear lobe as instructed in the essential oils reference book.

I also added the Thieves oil blend in front and behind the ear for the infection. Just in case the symptoms were due to infected kidneys, I also advised her to apply some Thieves on her back in the area around the kidneys. She was to repeat the procedure again that night.

The next day, I called to inquire how my aunt was doing and was pleasantly surprised to learn that as soon as she applied the Brain Power a second time, the ringing noise instantly stopped, plus the nausea also disappeared!

Since that time, I have helped 2 other people with Tinnitus, once with Brain Power again and once with the PanAway oil blend, because I had ran out of Brain Power. It seems that as long as the blend had Helichrysum, it was still effective.

Young Living essential oils have provided me with the tools to enhance the health of my family and friends, to bring our bodies back to balance.

5.Associated topics: kidneys — "Many plant extracts that protect against the development of oxidative stress manifest clear antilithiasic activity [preventing the formation of or relieving the symptoms of kidney stones].... Evidence obtained to date supports a contributory role of polyphenols [present in essential oils] in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, some cancer types, and osteoporosis.... The results show an improvement of the renal function in some treated groups with an increase of diuresis and creatinine excretion due to polyphenols pretreatment. Our results clearly validate the ability of polyphenols to protect against papillary calcification of kidney tissue, consequently preventing the development of papillary calculi [kidney stones].... The collective findings to date support a protective effect of polyphenols on kidney tissue. Thus, considering that injury of papillary tissue constitutes the first step in the development of COM papillary calculi, the antioxidant action of polyphenols may contribute significantly to their antilithiasic action."Link
