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.

After having my second baby, I was not able to lose weight at all other than the initial birth day weight loss. I tried several diets and lots of exercise but nothing would budge the scale. I suspected I had thyroid issues but was unable to get it checked out.

A few months ago, I found out I was pregnant with our third child, and my symptoms got more pronounced. I was exhausted beyond belief, extremely sensitive to natural sunlight, had chills often even when it was very hot outside, and my emotional state and my moods were all over the place and would change from good to bad so quickly. I was also losing an alarming amount of hair. I don't know if all of these things are related to thyroid, but these were just the symptoms I was experiencing.

I had bought the Young Living Golden Touch kit which had several oils, including Endoflex. I hadn't used it yet because I wasn't sure what it was for or how best to use it, but I was able to go to another oils class and understand more about this particular oil.

About 2 weeks ago, I began rubbing a drop or two of Endoflex over my whole throat area (thyroid) each morning and night. I didn't notice anything right away, but slowly things have gotten much better! I noticed my moods were more stable, I wasn't exploding emotionally nearly as often. I had much more energy to deal with my 2 young children during the day. My hairbrush had hardly any hair in it after brushing, so I knew I wasn't losing as much hair.

The most obvious one to me was the day I was out all day running errands and realized I forgot my sunglasses. Normally I would have had to squint so bad because of the brightness and had a horrible headache the rest of the day, but not now! The light wasn't even bothering me, and it was a very sunny day with no clouds in the sky.

I know these oils work and they are wonderful for our health. I'm so thankful to have learned about them and to have them and be able to use a healthier alternative for my growing family!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: mood-swings,emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
2.Associated topics: pregnancy — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
3.Associated topics: thyroid — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
4.Associated topics: exhaustion — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
5.Associated topics: baldness-/-hair-loss-(Alopecia) — "Eyelid scrubs or massage with tea tree oil could be an effective treatment regimen in cases of blepharoconjunctivitis [and Demodex mite infestation]."Link
6.Associated topics: mood-swings,emotions-/-feelings — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link

Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
8.Associated topics: mood-swings — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
