We have been using Young Living Essential Oils for a while now and have had some pretty nice experiences, but the latest one is by far the most exciting. My husband Mark came home looking like he'd had a stroke. His facial muscles on one side of his face were paralyzed. Everything on that side of his face drooped and his speech was impaired so I couldn't understand anything he said. He also couldn't drink without dribbling. Thankfully, it wasn't a stroke but it turned out to be Bells Palsy.

After learning that it can take weeks or months to get the facial muscles back to normal I said, "No way! We have oils that will do the job in no time." I looked up Bells Palsy in "Embraced by the Essence." It said that it is thought to be a virus that attacks the facial nerves. We used Thieves to kill the virus. We also did Raindrop Therapy. Then we used nerve-regenerating oils to help the damaged nerves -- frankincense, peppermint, geranium, and Vitex. Within days he was completely recovered. There is no evidence that there was ever a problem.
