Neck Pain

neck painRecently I experienced back and neck pain at the same time. It took about three weeks to get an appointment with a chiropractor. Meanwhile, the pain was greatly reduced by alternating peppermint, wintergreen and marjoram essential oils on my neck and back in the morning and before bed. I was able to discontinue the use of over-the-counter pain medications and made it to the appointment.

Prostate Cancer

prostate ribbon“I was diagnosed with advanced stage prostate cancer in 1993, and have used a combination of prescription drugs, as my only medical treatment. They have kept the cancer temporarily under control, but the side effects are significant and I worry that they may be doing as much long term damage as short term good.

It has been over a year now since Alexander shared the Essential Oils with us and it was obvious from the first day that they were different than any of the dozens of ideas and products that I had tried before. They have helped me everyday to be hopeful, to feel in control, to have more stamina, physical energy, and mental clarity – and they do wonders for my attitude!!

Recently I stopped taking the drugs and started a more serious program using the oils (including Frankincense) and after only two weeks a blood test showed that the tumor growth had slowed significantly. After another eight weeks, two more tests have shown that the growth nearly stopped and then increased only slightly.

This is truly such a remarkable result, the first time In four years that anything like this has happened!! I don’t know what the future will hold, but this is just so exciting, I had to share it with you.

I have also used the Essential Oils to relieve arthritic and sciatica pain and to heal cuts, burns, and hemorrhoids that had been a constant Irritation for over 20 years.

My wife, my mother-in-law, our children, and our grandchildren have all used the Essential Oils to successfully treat chronic ear infections which resisted all antibiotics. We have used Essential Oils to treat asthma and allergies as well as flu, colds, sore throats, teething pain, emotional stress, chronic joint pain, digestive problems, and many, many other ailments.

My wife, Karen, and I also use several of the supplements which I believe have helped us to improve our general health and to avoid many of the illnesses that those around us have endured. I can’t imagine not being able to use the oils everyday, they have simply become a wonderfully important part of our lives.”

Rash“In 1993 a rash appeared on my forehead a couple days after using a friend’s welding helmet – I rubbed Cortisone salve on it and went around with a greasy forehead for 2-3 days every 2-3 weeks. I went to a dermatologist after a year of this and he put me on Tetracycline, which I used for 2 years.

Yes, the chemicals in Tetracycline diminished the rash, and I had it down to one capsule every day and a half, but the residues from all the toxic chemicals we take go directly to the colon and spleen, where they stay for the rest of our lives, building anti-immunities, and polluting the liver.

I looked in the Introduction booklet for all the oils that had rash listed in them and decided on Bergamot, which also has taken care of my oily complexion. Since September 27, 1996, the first day I started with it, I have been off the Tetracycline.

I also had a construction related rash on a couple fingers, and had been rubbing Fluocinonide cream on it whenever it broke out. Even though the cream worked (after 3-4 days of use), I was never sure of the “ingredients.” I tried Lavender Oil and my fingers cleared up within 2 days and so far has stayed clear!

I have finally found something that is truly what it claims to be, and I can feel good about highly recommending these oils, herbal supplements and skin care products to everyone interested in a return to a clean body system and good health using totally organic, alternative healing.”

ShinglesMayo Clinic said that Cayenne pepper may kill the shingles. It said it did help with pain. So I use the Master Cleanse Juice through out the day with 1/2 tsp cayenne in it. It helps the pain and the itch for about 4 hours.

I use Gary Young’s pain formula plus the oils of Spikenard and Melissa for my shingles. Many of the oils are anti-inflammatory, and are also nervines meaning they assist nerves.

Here is Gary’s Pain Formula I use…
20 drops Valerian
20 drops Vetiver
10 drops Helichrysum (or you can substitute Elmi or Palo Santo)
5 drops Clove
5 drops Peppermint
10 drops Idaho Balsam Fir

For Shingles I added:
10 drops Melissa
5 drops Spikenard

I take one drop at a time by mouth every minute until the pain subsides. I then start taking one drop every 15 minutes and for an hour then 1 drop an hour. I have made 4 recipes so far and the pain is getting less and less each day. I had pain all over my body since I had shingles all over my body including face, eyes, ears, arms and legs.

I feed the nerves Calcium, Magnesium, Super B, Essential Fatty Acids like Omega Blues, Olive Oil, Evening Primrose etc. The shaking nerves are decreasing, the tension in my body is decreasing, the sharp knife like pains are decreasing.

Shingles is caused by low adrenal and low immune system allowing the
chicken pox virus to activate due to stress. So to support those systems… Oysters, onions, garlic, and sweet potatoes along with Rehemogen and other immune oils assist the immune system.

Sinus Infections

Sinus“When ever I have a headache from sinus congestion I use R.C. (it stands for respiratory condition). R.C. is a blend of four different eucalyptus essential oils that support the respiratory system. I place a few drops on my forehead then under my nose.

If I am coughing, I have my husband mix a few drops of R.C.and V-6 oil and rub my back and chest. Then I wrap up in a blanket and take a short nap. This will usually break up the congestion or sinus trouble that I was having.

I feel it is important to take some sleep time so the oils can work better without interference of being active. I have always gotten better results. I always carry a bottle in my purse in the fall and winter. A great way to share with people you come in contact with.”

Snoring“I have been married to a snorer for 36 years. I don’t believe that there has been one night that my husband has not snored.

On August 6, 1997 I diffused the Essential Oil into the air in our bedroom expecting to get a calming effect so I would get a good nights sleep. I did feel that calm, but much to my surprise I also had a quiet night. MY HUSBAND DID NOT SNORE ALL NIGHT.

I did the same thing the next night and the next and the next—etc. and the results were the same. Both my husband and I are sleeping better than we have in years. These oils are great! ”

Stomach Aches

upset stomach“I learned that Peppermint Oil relieves an upset stomach after trying every thing else. I placed a very small amount (less than a drop) on the tip of my tongue and in minutes I had relief.”

Strep Throat

strep throat“Our initial reason for trying the oils was to see if they would help our 10 year old son. He has been plagued with severe stomach cramps and throwing up since he was 3 or 4 years old. Doctors have said it is related to his sinuses. Others say “children have stomach aches”, and on and on. I have watched him suffer through these episodes and know that this is NOT normal.

Since we have been using the Peppermint Oil (9/96) he has not had one single episode! My daughter is also susceptible to strep throat and she has had only one bout early this season. She is feeling great with the use of Peppermint, Lemon and Lavender Oils.

We all have been healthier this winter and attribute it to the oils. That is the only thing that has changed. I just want to thank Dr. Daniel Little for introducing us to these great oils and hope that we can share with others.

Essential Oils have proven to us that not ALL MLM’s (editor: Multi Level Marketing Companies) are a rip off. It is great to find one that has such a wonderful product. I hope to be able to share with others this year and see some profits using the these products.”

Brain stroke“I had a stroke that affected my right side approximately 2 1/2 years ago. It was caused from an auto accident injury. After three days of just applying a few drops of Peppermint Oil on the bottom of my feet I could walk with a cane 4 times farther than before.

I then ordered the Geranium Oil and the Juniper Oil and used a blend of these oils with Peppermint and put them on the bottom of my feet. This really started a regeneration of the nerves.

I could feel it at first in my right foot. Then in less than a week the feeling was up to my knee. The dropped right foot has come up 1/2 way and the circulation has increased resulting in much less swelling of the right foot and leg. I have better right foot control and step coordination.

I’m now able to go into stores, walk around, shop, stand, etc., and not give out. Before I did not even try Wal-Mart or the other stores because my legs would quit. Praise God for His Wisdom in giving us Pure Essential Oils. I’ll see you in the marathon.”

Tendonitis“I developed tendonitis in my right elbow this summer and had begun a serious routine of taking aleve in the mornings and ibuprophen throughout the day when the pain was intense.

My friend applied a Young Living essential oil, Deep Relief, and within minutes the pain was significantly reduced! I used it everyday for about a week and stopped taking the over the counter drugs.

I carry that little roll bottle where ever I go and whenever I overuse my elbow or the pain flares up, I simply roll it on and the pain is instantly relieved. Also, Panaway or Peppermint works well too.

I didn’t know that the side effects from using the over the counter drugs were so dangerous. Now, more than ever, I believe in the power of non-toxic and natural healing of these oils”


Tonsillitis“On Monday my 11 year old daughter woke up with tonsillitis. Her tonsils were red and swollen. Her temperature was 100 and climbing. I put one drop of Lemon Oil, one drop of Peppermint Oil and one drop of Frankincense Oil in the palm of my hand, mixed them clockwise and applied to each side of her throat and to the bottom of her feet. I did this twice a day.

On Tuesday she was worse, more swelling and now she had pus spots on each tonsil. Her temperature was now 102. Still I persisted. Late Tuesday night her fever broke.

Wednesday it never got above 99.4 and the swelling and color looked better. My daughter was much better on Friday and returned to school only to find out she could not return without a doctors note.

We took her to our doctor the following morning. There was very little swelling, temperature of 99 and no pus pockets on the tonsils. He said she was fine and did not need a prescription. I described her condition at the beginning of the week and he said he would have recommended removing her tonsils had he seen her then. The doctor was amazed at her recovery.”

Urinary Tract Infection

URI“Not long ago I woke up at 2 AM with what promised to be a raging urinary tract infection. Every five minutes found me getting out of bad to visit the bathroom. Anyone who has ever had one of these infections knows that they are not fun. The symptom are frequency of urination, accompanied by a burning sensation.

Finally, not intending to spend too restless a night, I gathered up my blanket and pillow and perched myself on the throne. In a few minutes, my husband Patrick came into the bathroom with the thyme and lavender oils and told me to rub them in my abdomen. Ten minutes later I was able to go back to bed and sleep the rest of the night.

Now that’s powerful!”

Warts“I have suffered with more than thirteen warts, some as big as peas, on my hands for several years. I have tried every product on the market, as well as all the home remedies I heard about, but I had no luck getting rid of them. After receiving my Young Living Essential Oils I decided to experiment with them. I started rubbing some Spruce Oil and Frankincense Oil on them once or twice a day. After two weeks all my warts were completely gone.”
