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.

On January 6th, 2009, I was picking my daughter up from school. High school parking lots are dangerous places even with 4 huge stop signs. Teenagers peel out after classes, run stop signs, texting, looking in the back seat at too many passengers in the car, talking on the phone, etc. They think they are invincible.

I had purchased the car of my dreams, a cool blue Mini-cooper. After seeing the movie, The Italian Job, I thought it would be awesome to have a Mini-cooper. It was fun, until I was rear ended in a high school parking lot not 10 feet after pulling away from 4 huge stop signs.

You never know what life will bring... I was left with scoliosis (curvature of the neck and spine), a broken collarbone, paralysis in the right side of my face and numbness in my right hand.

What do you do when you are a single mom of two teenagers and this happens, you BELIEVE.

You DREAM of better days. You have two high spirited horses and are laying on the couch. Well, after 23 thousand dollars of medical care: neurologist, chiropractors, MRI's, X-rays, several physical therapists and osteopaths, I found out about Raindrop Technique and Young Living Essential Oils. Raindrop Technique was developed by founder Gary Young.

This is a technique to help with scoliosis, stimulate the nervous system, eliminate fungus, viruses and bacteria. Hey, I had tried everything else and nothing worked. I was in pain, and I couldn't function. I needed RESULTS. I wanted to ride horses again, run, sleep without pain. I wasn't going to take pain pills, muscle relaxers and liver toxic pharmaceutical drugs.

The story ends happily. I am riding my horse, running, riding my bike, swimming and hiking. Thanks to the purest essential oils in the world! I can feel better without side effects. I was not just covering up symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs.

Do you really think the pharmaceutical drug companies want you to take a drug for years so that they can make lots of money? Are all drugs liver toxic with side effects including death? I'll let you decide this for yourself. I've found a better way to help myself like people have been doing for thousands of years.
