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.

This is a testimonial of a patient who had their thyroid removed. The time period is between the surgery and 6 weeks after, where no thyroid hormone is given until more radiation is done. She writes:

I have NOT been having the "bottoming out" experience that most have during this time of having to be off of my thyroid meds. I feel fine, just a little tired and sluggish. That's it. No weight gain, no mood swings, no depression, no days in bed! I'm doing fine. I have been using Young Living essential oils, and there is no other explanation other than God carrying me through this. I believe that He is using these oils to help me.

I use Peppermint essential oil daily. I inhale it, put it on topically, and always have a few drops of it in my drinking water.

I use Frankincense essential oil on my neck and face, and I inhale it. I also apply it everywhere using my shea butter as a carrier oil.

I use the Thieves essential oil blend a lot! I just started putting it on my feet and on a couple of toenails that I have had trouble with for years. The fungal problem has been clearing after having tried a lot of things (Oregano oil, Tea Tree oil, diets, etc.).

Also, I was the only one in my whole family who did NOT get sick this year. Coincidence?

Lastly, I have had some trouble with my lower back aching on and off for the last 18 months. I have stretched, used heat, tried so many other things, and have gotten no lasting relief.

I just realized that the discomfort has been gone for weeks now, and the only new thing that I have done is add the Everyday Oils to my daily routine. That's it! I have no explanation other than that.
