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 have reactive hypoglycemia and with this pregnancy my blood sugar levels were affecting the placenta by causing it to age too fast. At 16 weeks the placenta was almost a 2 and at 26 weeks it was well into a stage 2. They were worried that it would not make it to 37 weeks, so I was scheduled for another ultrasound at 32 weeks.

I came home and started researching my oils stuff and started taking Ocotea and NingXia Red daily. I already had a good diet - I was (am) gluten free and no refined sugar. When I went back at 32 weeks the placenta had not aged one bit. The ultrasound tech told me I would make 40 weeks no problem.

Well, at 42+ weeks the midwife sent me back for one more ultrasound to make sure everything was still ok since I went "overdue" - the ultrasound tech and the midwife were talking over the speaker phone and were marveling over the fact that the placenta had not aged one bit since 32 weeks. I ended up going 43 weeks with this little guy! I am so thankful I was able to use the oils to control the blood sugar levels and deliver my baby safely.
