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.

When I was pregnant with my son, we chose to go with a midwife; she was a distributor for YLEO.

I would get knots in my uterine ligaments causing me a lot of pain. They were even more painful because my baby was constantly moving. I nicknamed him Flipper because he was never still. It seemed that my pain was also causing him discomfort, so he would move around a lot to try to get comfortable.

One day, as my midwife was palpating him, she anointed my stomach with Peace & Calming and prayed as she massaged the knots out of my ligaments. That evening and the next day, I noticed a great reduction in the amount of movements from my baby.

I wanted to get worried, but I realized that his movements were actually down to a normal amount. The Peace & Calming blend had eased my pain, and he was finally able to get comfortable... as was I.

A few months after he was born, we had gone to visit a friend. We loaded up to head home. Baby was fussy; but it was only a few minutes to get home, so I just let him cry for a bit... except he got really upset. My daughter pulled my oils out of the diaper bag and put Peace & Calming on him (unbeknownst to me).

He stopped crying so suddenly that I asked, "What did you do?!!"
She said, "I put Peace & Calming on his feet and am holding the bottle under his nose so he can smell it."

Babies are very aware of the things that go on around them in utero. He remembered this smell associated with comfort from when he was all warm and cozy in my womb. That memory helped him to calm down again... because it was triggered by the smell of the oil.
