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 learned about Young Living when I was in the ladies prayer meeting at church and I was having a headache and neck ache.

One of the ladies in the meeting had some the Thieves oil blend from Young Living, and shared it with me. The pain was gone before I went into bible class a short time later.

Later I was outside in the backyard and the mosquitoes were not happy about that. When I came back inside I had mosquito bites on my hand and was complaining to my husband.

I decided to apply the Lavender oil on the bites and got relief right away. I put 1 drop of Lavender oil on my inside of one hand and using my finger just dabbed the oil on the bites. That's all it took to get relief.

I soon totally forgot about the bites and itching.
