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.

This incident is my first success story with my oils shortly after joining Young Living.

My husband's son's girlfriend was over with her 9 month old son and he had the worst hiccups EVER - they looked painful and had been going on for about 10 minutes before I "twigged" and thought maybe I should check my "Essential Oil Desk Reference" to see what may help hiccups. One of the oils it suggested for hiccups was "Peppermint" - which I had on hand.

The "Desk Reference" stated that Peppermint Essential Oil shouldn't be topically applied to children under 18 months, so I put a drop in my hand, rubbed my hands together and I gently blew the oil smell towards him (My hands were about 6 inches away from him). His hiccups stopped INSTANTLY... Everyone sat there with their mouths open.

About a week later the same girlfriend came over to show us her new puppy and the poor little mutt got the hiccups - we all looked at each other and thought "Why not", I got the Peppermint oil out and did the same technique with poochie - and her hiccups stopped INSTANTLY. That convinced me the first "incident" wasn't a "fluke" and I was hooked.
