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.

It's safe to say I have a gluten sensitivity. It took me years to diagnose despite many appointments with doctors, neurologists and a few MRI's. During the course of a few years, I would wake every morning with massive headaches; it was as if my entire brain was inflamed and pushing in all ways against my skull, from occipital to eyebrows. The headaches seemed to be immune to aspirin and the like. They would last more than half a day. Then I started reading about gluten sensitivity and its symptoms and decided to go gluten-free, the headaches stopped. This was before I became aware of Young Living oils.

A few days ago, Christmas day, I gave into temptation. I ate four homemade cookies, the kind my mom's been making since I was born. It was okay, it was the holidays, or so I thought. That night while tossing and turning, I realized I was working up to a monster headache. By the time I woke in the morning, the dull, thuddish headache was so intense, I wanted something quick and easy to relieve the pain. Knowing it felt like inflammation, I reached for the bottle of Young Living Lemongrass and put two drops in my water glass and drank a few sips. I would say that within 10 minutes or less, my headache was gone.

Please note, that if you decide to use Lemongrass topically, mix it with a carrier oil as it is a 'hot' oil. There are other oils one might use for anti-inflammatory purposes, I had just remembered that Lemongrass was a good one (and also very affordable), one that I also used successfully on clients who suffer from dizziness and vertigo.
