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.

We had been on vacation and my 4 year old was "off schedule." Besides vacation, he had gone through a 10 hour flu and was probably underhydrated. I could tell he was uncomfortable. After we got home I gave him a tablespoon of fletcher's kids laxative. I had used that in the past and sometimes it can take a day or so, so I decided to check my oil reference and saw Fennel under the constipation list, which was a Young Living oil I happen to have on hand.

I rubbed 2 drops each on his vitaflex points of each foot and also rubbed 2 drops into his tummy and put him to bed in a pull-up. Two hours later I heard him stirring and crying, then nothing. When I went in to check on him - wow - he was relieved and sleeping soundly. That was QUICK and seemingly easy for the poor kid.

I changed him and put him back to bed like nothing ever happened. Thank you again Young Living.
