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 2 year old grandson suffers from a stuffy nose and chest congestion from a cold since last winter. He can't sleep at night because he can't breathe! I am new to Young Living oils but I have much faith in them! I read in one of the testimonials on this website that the Breathe Again oil blend works with chest congestion.

I ordered it right away and the next time my grandson spent his weekend with me, I rubbed it on his chest and back before he went to sleep. I also diffused Thieves and Purification oil blends the whole night. For the first time in ages, my grandson slept like a log, straight through the morning and me, too!

Even before using the Breathe Again, since I received my oils, I have applied the Peace & Calming oil blend on his feet and Lavender on his pajamas and his pillows whenever he spends the weekend with me. I'm sure they helped also, but he still can't breathe through his nose so he constantly woke up trying to get a better position on the bed. He loves it when I apply the oils on him. He thinks it's a game! He asks for "oi" whenever he has an itch or little boo-boos!

I am such a believer in oils and so is my grandson also! I've been researching the various oil brands for a few years but I always get skeptical with the purity of the ones I found on the Internet and they were so ridiculously expensive. So I am very grateful that I found Young Living oils through a colleague. I am building up my collection of various oils that I believe should be handy at my home. I always bring a few bottles with me in my bag whenever I leave the house.

One never knows when one would need to apply a drop here or there for whatever ailment.
