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 had significant high frequency hearing loss from years of working in noisy chemical plants. He seriously needed hearing aids, but we were put off by their high cost. His hearing loss was causing him to be unable to enjoy family and social gatherings and he had to watch TV at a volume level that hurt our ears.

I attended a meeting that was teaching about Young Living Essential Oils and their use for hearing restoration was discussed. I had just received my everyday oils kit and Purification was in that kit. Purification was one of the oils discussed for hearing restoration. These oils were to be applied topically and massaged in around the ears (not dropped "in" the ear) daily.

Honestly, my husband was not faithful everyday but did use them more days than not. After about 6 weeks of almost daily application of Purification, his hearing was restored. His experience was not a gradual return, but rather that one day he woke up and noticed he could hear.

Although there was not a total restoration, he still has trouble with background noise, but he can participate in most conversations now and watches TV at a normal sound volume.
