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.


Since my son was about 2.5 years old he displayed signs of a neurological tic disorder. It started with licking his lips constantly, then changed after a few weeks to blinking hard. Sometimes we would go weeks or months without seeing a tic.

He is now 5 years old and a few months ago started seeing very noticeable tics. He was blinking so hard his eyes were watering and causing sores at the corners of his eyes. Then he added jerking his arm really hard. I called his pediatrician and he diagnosed him with transient tic disorder. Not turrets syndrome. Thank God. The pediatrician sent us to a neurologist who specializes in tic disorders in children. He gave us the same diagnosis. Told us he would out grow it.

The next day my son added shaking his head really hard, to the blinking and arm jerking. He was physically in pain and couldn't stop. It became debilitating. We were heartbroken watching our son slip away. We took him back to the neurologist a few days later and they handed me a prescription for Clonapin and Lexapro. I was so shocked! He's 5 for crying out loud.

We took him to an acupuncturist/chiropractor and started using Young Living products. After the first treatment of Stress Away he was calmer and the blinking stopped. We used Peace & Calming and Lavender at night and he slept like a baby. We used Valor and Stress Away everyday before school.

Every day the tics got less and less until today we are tic free. His teachers and family are just amazed at his recovery! Needless to say I ripped up those prescriptions!

We used Valor, Stress Away, and Peace & Calming on the bottom of his feet 3X a day. I also used Valor directly to the back of his neck. Also diffused Valor and Peace & Calming at night in his room. There is no wrong way to use these oils. It just took experimenting to find what was right for my son.

2.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
3.Associated topics: anxiety-/-worry — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
4.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "A number of essential oils are currently in use as aromatherapy agents to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression. Popular anxiolytic oils include lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rose (Rosa damascena), orange (Citrus sinensis), bergamot (Citrus aurantium), lemon (Citrus limon), sandalwood (Santalum album), clary sage (Salvia sclarea), Roman chamomile (Anthemis nobilis), and rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium spp.)."Link
5.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
6.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
7.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout,anxiety-/-worry — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
8.Associated topics: stress-/-tension-/-burnout — "This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
