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.


In the last 25+ years, I can't remember when I slept through the night. I often woke up between 1:30 am and 3:30 am and it didn't matter what time I went to bed. Sometimes, I would be able to go back to sleep within minutes or an hour before I had to actually get up. Many times I wouldn't be able to sleep again at all.

I started using Young Living oils in March 2004 and I started with Lavender on the soles of my feet. Then at a Young Living meeting someone mentioned using the Valor oil blend, so I made a 10% blend, 30 drops each of Valor and Lavender in a tablespoon of jojoba oil and used this to massage the soles of my feet before going to sleep and after my shower in the morning.

I hadn't really noticed anything until about 1/2 through my 1-1/2 hour commute to work one morning when I decided to take a nap. I knew there was another 45 minutes left so I closed my eyes for what seemed like only seconds only to find that we were now only 5 minutes away from the bus terminal.

I awoke feeling so refreshed as if I had been in a very deep sleep. Wow! It felt great! I didn't know that sleep could be so good.

I found I had the same experience at night as well and have had only rare occasions when I haven't been able to sleep. On those nights it was because I didn't use the oils.

As soon as I used the oils, I was sleeping soundly within 5 minutes! What an experience!
