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.

When I first learned about essential oils I believed they were simply a fad, the latest trend in aromatherapy and couldn't possibly be as effective as they claimed. I listened as a bystander but I was "the skeptic", I'm not easily convinced to jump on a new bandwagon.

Recently, I've lost more than 100lbs and in the process decided to attempt to become a runner. In the past, any time I tried running I was plagued by injury and my biggest fear was that it just wasn't in the cards for me. Little by little, I moved from "Couch to 5K" and began training for distance running. Running has taught me endurance and reminds me that at any point, with effort and determination, I can change the course of my existence and abilities.

In 2013 I decided to push myself and train for a half marathon. I'll never forget the day I ran 10 miles for the first time. That was my longest run ever and I was always told if I can do 10, I can definitely do 13. I was amazed and very sore! In the back of my mind I was concerned and praying that I would be able to continue without being sidelined by injury.

The next day I could hardly walk but had to do a 5 hour shift where I would be on my feet and doing lots of bending and lifting while working with children. That may not sound like a big deal to you, but if you've ever had intense muscle soreness whether self induced or not, it isn't fun.

A close friend who was a Young Living user offered me some PanAway and told me to apply it on my legs. I was a skeptic but decided what did I have to lose, after all, there were no side effects. I was BLOWN AWAY! In minutes I could feel the difference and my pain drastly diminished allowing me to sucessfully make it through the rest of my day. From that point forward, I was a believer and have continued to see first hand the benefit of using Young Living essential oils in every facet of my life.

Young Living essential oils are life changing and they are not a bandwagon. If you want to really see transformation in the life of you and your family, this is the real deal. Most of all, I don't need a prescription to get them and I never have to worry about them hurting my body or making me sick. I am so thankful for the quality of these oils, how they've impacted my family, and for those around me that turned this skeptic into a BELIEVER!
