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.

In 2011 I had the misfortune of eating a delicious slice of pizza topped with shellfish. That night my feet, ankles, and lower legs blew up to more than twice their size. It was both painful to stand and very difficult to walk.

With a variety of treatments, over an extended period of time my legs, feet and ankles returned to their normal size so I could walk again without pain, but the skin impacted by the unnaturally excessive stretching turned a maroon color and had the texture of shoe leather. The difference in skin color and texture was so extreme that in my bare legs it looked like I was wearing ankle high socks.

I tried countless concoctions, including prescription, over-the-counter, and homemade "healing" recipes to get my skin to return back to normal, but to no avail. Apparently, the skin on your stomach is designed to go back to normal if it expands, but not the skin on your legs. I was so happy to be walking again without pain that I decided not to fret about how my legs looked.

Almost 2 years later, I stumbled on an Young Living product testimonial addressing the topic of eczema. I opened it out of curiosity and noticed the author supplied a formula made up of 30 drops of Lavender, 10 drops of Lemon, and virgin coconut oil and got amazing results. I had a near empty 15ml bottle of Lemon oil, so I put in the 10 drops of Lemon, 30 drops of Lavender and filled the remainder of the bottle with virgin coconut oil.

I have been applying this formula to the affected area on my legs daily. I am thrilled to report evidence of the color and texture of the skin on my lower legs, ankles, and feet miraculously returning to normal. Praise the Lord!!

I am thankful to Almighty God for this evidence of healing; the makers of Young Living for the existence and availability of their therapeutic grade oils; the author of the testimonial that was shared for the benefit of others, which caused me to try this recipe for treatment; and the creators/managers/maintainers of this testimonial website who regularly send out alerts of new testimonials matching the keywords of prior searches.

I have been using these high quality products for several years now and I am continuously amazed at the miraculous results. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!! Thank you for your skill, your dedication, your sacrifice, and your product integrity.

I recommend using the basic search option of the website and putting in the keyword skin to see how others have used Young Living products with great success. If you're not afraid to act on the suggestions that apply to your problem, you too can be blessed by the results.
