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.

I recently joined Young Living and I love it. Its so therapeutic and IT WORKS. I have been having terrible itchy skin on my forehead and I would go on a scratching phase which would never stop for weeks. It was because I had been using tiger balm for more than 18 years and one day my body started fighting and rejecting it...then my skin would break out in redness, rash and slight bumps.

I used my first Young Living oil- Lavender oil on my itchy skin (my favourite scent) and within an hour my itching completely stopped and my dry flaky skin started peeling off. The itch came back later that evening and I immediatly applied Lavender and the itch stopped. I threw my tiger balm away and now whenever I have a headache I use Lavender oil and not tiger balm!

Lavender oil is very soothing to skin. mix it with 100% pure almond oil and apply or even just use it neat (directly). My dry skin is slowly going away but my itchiness and red spots and bumps on the skin has vanished. YOUNG LIVING OILS WORK as they dont adulterate the oils at all and what they press out of the plants is what they sell to you in a bottle.

Gary young has utilised well his gifts which GOD has given to him-which is the knowledge and determination to do the right thing and pass it on to other humans.
