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.

Around October 2012 my mom got very bad vertigo that lasted for about a month. It was so bad it made was difficult for her to walk, even to the restroom. We went to the doctor twice for help, but nothing they recommended helped.

My mother's vertigo was so bad that she had to come live with us. I was new to Young Living essential oils at the time and so they were new to my mother as well. She was trepidatious about letting me put oils on her, so I put a few drops of Lavender on a cotton ball and asked her to smell it as often as possible. Finally after about a week, one night she allowed me to put Lavender oil on the bottom of her feet and also her shoulders.

The next morning when she woke up, the vertigo was gone! I found out from her then that she had been smelling the cotton ball frequently throughout the day for the past week. I didn't even realize this at the time because she had been so skeptical about it. I didn't know that she had been smelling Lavender in secret!

Since that time (about 8 months ago) there have been two instances where the vertigo has come back for very short time. When it has come back she has smelled Lavender frequently throughout the day and within 2 days the vertigo has been gone. Now she tries to just smell Lavender daily to keep vertigo from returning.

I hope this information will be helpful to you or someone you know. I have never experienced vertigo but from what I saw it is very debilitating and extremely difficult to live with. When my mother had it she would frequently cry in misery, feel like it was never going to end and felt without hope at times. It is wonderful to know that Young Living oils can potentially rid someone else too of this terrible condition!

Please use only Young Living oils are they are therapeutic-grade. I do not feel you will get these results with any other brand as cheaper brands are adulterated with chemicals to make them stretch further. I use these oils for many other uses and love Young Living products!
