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.


My husband and I have 2 children. I went off birth control in June 2010 to try for our third child. From September 2010 to January 2011 I had no period. My doctor said I was extremely stressed, so I had an ultra sound done to see if something going on.

They found a 5.5 cm cyst on my ovary in March 2011. In May the ultra sound showed the cyst had shrunk to 2.4 cm on its own. The doctor said that my cyst shouldn't affect my ability to conceive.

I was very discouraged. My periods continued to be very irregular. My sister in-law and her mother did some research in oils for me and came up with a suggestion.

I used 2-3 drops of Clary Sage diluted with olive oil rubbed on the arches of my feet and lower abdomen just below my hips twice a day.

For my husband, he used 2-3 drops of Basil diluted in olive oil and rubbed on his feet and on his "man part" which was applied only once a day.

We did this for about a week during what I figured was around my ovulation time.

I am now pregnant, after more than a year trying!
