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.


Recently my husband had an issue with 2 fish in his ten gallon aquarium. Each of them had "white" on their faces above their upper mouth with one's was more-so than the other. My husband has also noticed that these two fish didn't seem to be eating. He had been having trouble with the tank getting cloudy and not staying clear in the water.

I told him I thought that his fish tank's pH was out of balance and that it needed to be brought back to alkalinity. I had just read within a week or two of this issue, while looking at testimonials on some other issue, that someone had used Lemon essential oil to clear up ich, which is a white, stringy disease of fish in aquariums. I mentioned this to my husband, ever the skeptic he is, not thinking he would use it.

He was willing to try it, so we started with just one drop the first day. The next day he began using 2 drops/day. Within the first few days, it appeared the white on the faces of the fish was slowly disappearing and the fish seemed to be eating again. He continued adding about 2 drops to the tank each day for the next couple of weeks.

When he started this, he also noticed that the fake plants in the tank also had all sorts of tiny black spots on them. The Lemon oil eradicated totally the white on the fish's faces and also helped clear out some of the black fungal growth on the plants. Only therapeutic grade oils by Young Living could have brought about such a result. I LOVE these oils for the myriad of alternative uses they offer!

A pilot study was initiated to determine the killing power of clove oil.... SEMs revealed dead mites on the fibers.... The zone of inhibition indicated significant clearance for all the bacteria and fungi indicating greater biocidal activity when compared to the controls.... Clove oil is a promising agent for killing dust mites with a potential use in dust-mite laden mattresses."Link

The pathogenesis of Demodex blepharitis in eliciting ocular surface inflammation has been further clarified. The modified eyelash sampling and counting method makes it easier and more accurate to diagnose Demodex infestation. Tea tree oil shows promising potential to treat Demodex blepharitis by reducing Demodex counts with additional antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory actions."Link
