Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have a neuropathy situation going on in my body and brain. Evidently I can't absorb B12 naturally, so now I take B12 injections. Hopefully, the B12 will eventually correct my neuropathy situation.

In the meantime, I can't sleep and find peace at night unless I use a particular essential oil regimen. That's what I'd like to share with you here:

This vitaflex regimen takes me about 7 minutes in the morning and 7 minutes in the evening after bathing. It doesn't have to occur right before bedtime. If I DON'T do my essential oils regimen (skipping it for two days), I have acute, relentless "no sleep whatsoever until about 4a.m." Miserable. Each time I test this by eliminating my vitaflex routine, I find the same results: NO sleep. Lashing my head from side to side, no comfort, numbness and coldness in my feet.

My vitaflex regimen has changed over the months, depending on which version of the essential oils reference book I consult, and also which Young Living oils are in stock or out of stock. I used to used Juniper, Geranium, Aroma Life (because of the Helichrysum content), and Copaiba.

Nowadays I vitaflex these oils in succession on each foot three times: Aroma Siez, PanAway, Peace & Calming, and lastly Copaiba. Then I rub my foot with a cream to seal in the oils and put socks on. I spend the rest of the evening relaxing with Netflix and/or needlework.

I also diffuse Vetiver and Valerian in the bedroom right before lying down to sleep. Ahhhhhh. Sleep is precious and valuable.

I thank GOD for the oils that are such a comfort to my life.
