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.

The son of a friend had a blood clot that extended down the side of his leg from hip to knee. The affected leg was double the size of his other.

He was seeing a doctor and had been given increasing doses of Coumadin up to a current dose of 20 mgs. This had been going on for nine months with no improvement and his mother was concerned about internal bleeding from that much Coumadin.

I was just introducing her to Young Living and we checked the essential oils reference book for blood clots and found that Helichrysum was the recommended oil.

When she received the oil, her son began putting several drops of it on his leg and covering the clot with a warm cloth to work the oil further into the area.

Within a week, the clot was three quarters smaller and the swelling in the leg had gone down considerably.

He and his mother are thrilled and he continues to use the oil.
