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.

My 5-year-old son has been diagnosed with ADHD by his pediatrician and autism by a counseling center. I have tried everything with him, from going gluten free and taking the dyes out of his diet to herbal vitamins, but nothing was working.

I was receiving calls from the principal every other day, and I would have to leave work to go pick him up from school due to his irrational behavior. Having to leave work is not the easiest thing for me, considering I am a single mom of twins trying to keep a roof over our heads. I even put him on an ADHD medicine for a day, but he ended up having a severe reaction (face twitching and grinding his teeth).

I knew that I had to do something, and that is when I turned to Young Living essential oils. I was honestly skeptical at first, but after having tried everything else I figured that it was worth a shot. I started out ordering the Premium Starter Kit a couple of weeks ago.

I now use Peace & Calming with a carrier oil on his feet at night, and I diffuse Lavender in the evening. Before school I apply Valor, Frankincense, and Stress Away to my son and diffuse Joy. The teacher and I have noticed a dramatic improvement in his behavior and focus.

The one day that I forgot to apply his oils, he ended up getting mostly sad faces on his behavior chart. I will never go without my essential oils after seeing the difference in my son. I love Young Living Essential Oils!
