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 suffered from terrible hypothyroidism for 3 months which was a huge culprit in making me lose about 60% of my hair, and I suffered from the worst fatigue and irritability due to lack of sleep.

I started using Endoflex essential oil 3 times daily on the thyroid, on vitaflex points on feet and on wrists. I also used RutaVaLa for sleep, and added 1 drop of Frankincense on my crown chakra (top head area) upon waking up and before bedtime.

No sooner did I start this, I started sleeping more soundly through the night, and woke up less irritable. After 5 weeks, a test at my chiropractors showed that my thyroid is back to normal. Hurrah! Thank you Gary Young, thank you Young Living Oils and thank you God for providing us with all we need!
