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 5-year-old son has an old soul, and he is truly a deep, gifted thinker. It is next to impossible for him to associate with children younger than he is, and he gets very frustrated when older children "act like babies" (in his own words). This frustration causes him to isolate himself, and it makes him sad and depressed.

His best friend came over for a sleepover last night. He is 7 years old but at times acts much younger. During the evening I noticed it had grown quiet out back. I saw my son pouting and sitting sadly on his swing. His friend, who loves him dearly and understands his mood swings, was trying to engage him. But my son was having none of it.

I had just received my Young Living starter kit, BUT the Everyday Oils collection was missing (apparently a common problem with this latest batch of orders). The only oil that was in the box was Stress Away. I figured it was as good a time as any to try it and opened the bottle, attaching the included roller.

I called my son in and asked him to let me try something on him. I rolled Stress Away on each of his wrists and on the back of his neck and sent him back to the swing.

Within two minutes -- and I am not exaggerating -- my son was up and running around the yard playing again. I heard his friend ask him if what mama did helped his mood. He said, "Yes, I feel much better now!"

His joy was so evident that my wife, who had been resting in the back bedroom, heard him laughing and came out to ask me if everything was okay. Apparently she had sensed his mood change from back there and was amazed also.

I cannot wait to try out more of these wonderful essential oils, and I will be sure to keep you all posted.
