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.


Our family had just moved from Wisconsin to New Mexico at the end of December. Well, I guess when you move to another part of the country, it is easy to get sick right away.

My two oldest boys got pinkeye after 2 weeks of being there. I was just introduced to the Young Living Oils, and one of our church member's brought over Lavender and told me to put the Lavender oil around their eyes, the bone area. I did, and within 2 days, it was cleared!

But, I had noticed I was wiping my eye and realized, "Oh no, I must be starting to get it!" So, I put the Lavender around my eye, and within MINUTES, I did not wipe again! It was gone, right away! I caught it in time.

Well, there was also sickness going around all of Roswell, and my children hadn't been on the oils for long, so it wasn't in their system long enough (Thieves) to keep them from getting too sick. They had horrible coughs, so another church member gave us some "R.C" and I put it on their chest, back and feet, and the boys stopped coughing immediately!

Even last week, my 2 1/2 yr. old, he began to cough again, but I put the RC on him at night before he went to bed, NO COUGHING! And he was fine in the morning. I put some on his feet along with the Thieves to fight any infection that was starting and he hasn't got a full blown sickness, and there have been a few cases of strep in his preschool! So far, no strep for him!

My husband had PAIN in his feet the other day, and I looked in my booklet, and then put Peppermint on his feet, and they stopped hurting!

Last night my 2 1/2 yr. old had an earache. He was holding his ear, so I had just ordered Melrose last month. I looked in the book, put 2 drops of Olive oil on a cotton swab and 2 drops of Melrose and rubbed it around his ear, the back, and on the ear (he wouldn't let me put the swab in his ear so I just kept rubbing) and he fell asleep. He has not complained about his ear at all this morning!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: respiratory,lungs-/-pulmonary,colds — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: ear-infection-(Otitis) — "Essential oils or their components placed in the ear canal can provide effective treatment of acute otitis media."Link
3.Associated topics: respiratory,lungs-/-pulmonary,colds,cough — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
4.Associated topics: colds — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
5.Associated topics: respiratory — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
6.Associated topics: ear-infection-(Otitis) — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
7.Associated topics: respiratory — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
8.Associated topics: pinkeye-(conjunctivitis) — "Eyelid scrubs or massage with tea tree oil could be an effective treatment regimen in cases of blepharoconjunctivitis [and Demodex mite infestation]."Link
