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.

My son Matthew is 7 and has moderate autism. Up to 8 months ago he was basically nonverbal. In the past 5 months I've been using oils, and it's helped his speech explode.

I use Peace & Calming to help him sleep at night or when his mind is moving too fast. He has high anxiety at times, and it says as the name suggests. I've also used Vetiver on him.

He doesn't like anything medical and has always refused meds. It takes four people to hold him down to give him anything by mouth, which is very traumatic for everyone. But with the oils I can easily and quickly apply, and he can't take them off. What a blessing!

He doesn't like the oils applied, but that's part of his sensory issues. But he lets me most of the time, and, when he doesn't, it's still less traumatic than forcing liquid down his throat and forcing him to swallow while being restrained by two people.

Now with Thieves, antibiotics no longer send fear to my bones. I just use Thieves.

With cuts, I no longer have to restrain my son to clean out the wound and then put antibacterial medicine on. I just use Lavender. My life is simple now!

If my son has tummy trouble, I don't use stomach meds. I use DiGize.

I realize these may not work for everyone, and I can't tell you what to use for your family. But these oils have been a blessing to mine. I realize I've rambled a little; there's just so much I've wanted to say about my journey with Matthew and the oils.
