"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 Young Living Essential Oils with Karen and
I, 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!!
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." John Salene, Springfield, OR
"I've never been so happy with a product in my life. Not
only have they been a blessing to me but all the people I've introduced
them to. I don't have one unhappy customer. I have a couple of
testimonies to share with you.
A month ago I was helping
my son move some railroad ties. I had balanced one tie up against
another and it didn't stay in place and it fell on my Big toe.
I thought I'd die. It hurt so bad I couldn't even cry. I was sure
the toe was broken and thought for sure I'd loose the toenail.
I went to the house and put a lot of Young Living Essential PanAway
Oil over the entire toe. I just knew I'd never be able to get
a shoe on to go to work the next morning. Guess what! Other than
being a little fatter than the other big toe it looked perfectly
fine. I put Young Living Essential PanAway Oil on it again before
going to work. Had no trouble getting a shoe on either. I didn't
even think of the toe again for a week. When 1 did remember I
was supposed to have a bad toe and checked it the only problem
was it wouldn't bend. It bends now and there has never been any
A week ago I was dressed
for church and as I was leaving I saw my dog standing by the house
looking so forlorn and miserable. She had a face full of porcupine
quills. Needless to say I stayed home to doctor the dog. I called
my daughter to come help and we strapped the dog to a board to
try to keep her from moving as much as possible and started in
on her. She cried so hard and was fighting so hard we knew we
had to do something different with her. I thought of the Young
Living Essential PanAway Oil. I had a small amount of Young Living
Ortho Ease left in a bottle and I added about 5 drops of Young
Living Essential PanAway Oil and another 5 drops of Young Living
Essential Peppermint Oil. It had a dramatic effect on her almost
right away. We gave her a few drops in the area which had the
most quills and waited a few seconds before pulling on the quills.
When we did start pulling again the quills came out much easier.
We would put the Young Living Essential PanAway and Peppermint
Oil on each area including inside her mouth as we were ready to
pull quills. The oils pacified the dog as well as killed most
of the pain. We pulled 97 quills from her face and mouth. She
laid on the board for about 15 minutes after we were done and
never moved a muscle. She appeared so relaxed. Occasionally her
eyes would go shut and then open again, like she was in her own
dreamland. She has been fine ever since." Mary Knutson,
"In 1993 a rash
appeared on my forehead a couple days after using a friend's welding
helmet. I was advised to use Cortisone10 salve on it by the local
Thrifty (now RiteAid) pharmacist, so I went around with a greasy
forehead for 2-3 days a week. I went to a dermatologist after
a year of this and he put me on Tetracycline, which I used for
2 years. The chemicals in Tetracycline kept the rash at bay (but
never did cure it) and I had it down to one capsule every day
and a half, but I was worried about the residues from all the
toxic chemicals we take that 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 Young Living's Introduction
to Aromatherapy booklet for all the oils that had rash listed
in them and decided on Bergamot.
Since September 27,
1996, the first day I started using Bergamot, I have been off
the Tetracyline. Bergamot has also taken care of my oily complexion,
although I have since switched to Lemon oil, basically just because
I prefer lemon scent to the grapefruit-like smell of Bergamot.
I think that any of the citrus oils would help too (orange, tangerine,

"I can't thank you enough for SHARING YOUR MESSAGE of the
YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS with me! I'll never forget that brown
package with the scented mailing and tape that arrived in my mail
one day. It was otherwise a typical day, with me working a graveyard
shift in a job made stressful by a handful of negative energy,
backbiting, power-mongering staff. I averaged two hours of sleep
on a good day. I picked up my mail on the way home from work,
and while waiting for the bus opened the package. The scent from
what was inside lifted my spirits as well as lifted the tension
and fatigue headache that I had that day. . I actually READ what
was in THAT mailing! The next day, a Sunday, I put the MISSING
LINK in the cassette player. I wasn't half way through the tape
when I stopped it and said, 'I just have to call the person who
sent this and ask him what this is!" That led to a discussion
on oils that have benefited others and led to my involvement with
experiencing the YOUNG LIVING OILS.
HOUSE WORK a HEADACHE?
Well, it was until I started putting LAVENDER oil in a SPRAY BOTTLE,
sometimes mixed with MOTIVATION oil and refreshed myself, as well
as sprayed it around areas prone to mold, such as under and behind
the dish drain mat, which then smelled sweet and clean. It actually
puts me in a better frame of mind.
And that stressful
negative energy job? The negative energy is still there, but I'm
not! When my YOUNG LIVING income began to grow, I took a step
of faith and "kissed" that job "good-bye!"
I much prefer POSITIVE energy, like Young Living Oils. Now my
YLEO income has replaced my salary and I expect will far exceed
it before long. So, I don't have THAT stress and headache any
more! And to think I had just got into this for the products!
YOUNG LIVING and my mentor and sponsor FRANK have been true GOD-SENDS.
Let's keep on sharing that message." Katey Hasson,

"On November 15th 1996, 1 fell off of a 9 ft. roof onto the
pavement while doing some roofing work. The extent of my injuries
were enough for the doctors to keep me in the observing ward and
hospital for nearly three days. Besides the partial collapse of
one of my lungs, they had also discovered that I had broken six
ribs and cracked two others. I could hardly walk due to the Impact
of falling and when I was released from the hospital, I had to
literally be carried in a wheelchair up our stairway into our
If I would have been
a roofer full time, perhaps I could have just hung out at home
and healed within a lengthy stretch of time but, being that I
am a professional singer, I did not have this luxury. I had four
big concerts coming up, the first scheduled only 10 days after
my accident. Among all of the prayers from our family & friends
and the suggestions from health workers, we were introduced to
Young Living Essential Oils. Shondra helped me apply Young Living
Essential Valor & Lavender Oils to the bottom of my feet and
Young Living Essential Birch & PanAway Oils to my back &
ribs while I was in the hospital and did this consistently for
the following ten days after my return home. My clients and audiences
never knew the difference and after my performances when I explained
what had happened to me, everyone was overwhelmingly amazed since
they had no indication that I was performing with 6 broken ribs.
Certainly, my experience with the oils has proven to Shondra,
myself, our family and many others that they do indeed work to
facilitate the body's own healing powers very quickly. Needless
to say we are sharing this testimony and the oils with as many
people as we can because we know first hand that they work and
we know that everyone can benefit by using them." Tom
Jepperson, San Diego, CA
"Sometimes great things happen from applying the oils that
you're not anticipating. Since joining Young Living about eight
months ago I've settled into using Young Living Essential Oils
En-R-Gee, Lemon, Valor, Clarity, and Lavender as my personal oils
just for general health. For many years as part of my morning
bathroom routine I've been massaging my scalp before combing my
hair. My sink bowl has always been covered with many hairs as
result. Recently I noticed that scarcely any hair falls out after
the massage. The difference is like night and day. I credit the
oils for this change, but which one or ones I have no idea. Maybe
it's the Young Living Essential Oil Rosemary in the Young Living
Essential Oil Clarity blend, or maybe it's the Young Living Essential
Oil Lemon or Young Living Essential Oil Lavender. I understand
that these three are good for the hair. What a pleasant surprise!"

I tried the Young Living
Essential Lavender Oil on our three children before they went
to bed. It helped them relax and sleep better through the night.
In fact, I slept through the night without one single little person
waking me. I took Young Living Essential Peace and Calming Oil
and started putting one drop on the children's pillows at night
and mine, too. That helped us all fall asleep quicker and sleep
more soundly. I've used the Young Living Essential Purification
and Lemon Oils for odors. In fact I have an open bottle of Young
Living Essential Purification Oil in our heater intake vent. Needless
to say I do not have any lingering odors in our house.
My husband and I used
the Young Living Essential Joy Oil and all I have to say is that
this is a must for bringing an extra boost to all couples relations.
As you can see I could
go on and on but one more before I close. Our son was bringing
home some school work with grades not that good. After talking
with him I came to the conclusion that he wasn't concentrating
so well. I tried some Young Living Essential Peppermint Oil on
him before school each day and his school work came home with
better grades. The bottom line is the Young Living Essential Oils
are terrific. The results speak for themselves. I have not been
as excited about a product since we were first introduced to the
benefits of antioxidants almost four years ago. Every family needs
to get these oils and add them to enhance their health and well
being. Well Done Young Living!" Teresa Hardgrave, Chandler,
"I'm a sixty-one year old man with no particular infirmities.
For the past two months I've started each day with Young Living
Essential En-R-Gee Oil on the bottom of one foot and Young Living
Essential Clarity Oil on the other. I have more energy and clearness
of mind than I've had in a long time!" Bruce Rutherford,
Downers Grove, IL
"I recently ordered Young Living Essential Mineral Essence.
I take 2 droppers in the morning in orange juice and 2 droppers
in the afternoon. I could not believe how much energy it gave
me. I ordered 2 more bottles - 1 for my mother and a spare for
me. I don't want to ever run out." Cindy Sweet, Mobile,
"Our initial reason for trying the oils was to see if they
would help our 10 year old son. He has been plagued with occasional
stomach cramps and throwing up. Doctors have said it is related
to his sinuses. Others say "children have stomach aches,"
and on and on. I have watched him suffer knowing that this is
NOT normal. Since we have been using the Young Living Essential
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 Young
Living Essential Peppermint Oil, Young Living Essential Lemon
Oil, and Young Living Essential Lavender Oil. We all have been
healthier this winter and attribute it to the oils. That is the
only thing that has changed.
I just wanted to thank
Dr. Daniel Little for introducing us to these great oils and hope
that we can share with others. Young Living Essential oils has
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." Charlotte

"I have suffered with over thirteen warts, some as big as
peas, on my hands for several years. I have tried every product
on the market, as well as the all home remedies I heard about,
but I had no luck getting rid of them. I started rubbing some
Young Living Essential Spruce Oil and Young Living Essential Frankincense
Oil on them once or twice daily. After two weeks all my warts
were completely gone." Judy Cramer, Youngstown, OH
"Since I received my kit I have not stopped using my oils.
I used to suffer from mood swings and no more since I used Young
Living Essential Joy Oil. I cleanse my home with their Purification
Oil and the house became calm and quiet. I used the Abundance
Oil and I am the most popular girl in town. Most of all I believe
the oils saved my marriage - no more fussing with my spouse. God
Bless Young Living!" B. Erskine, New York
"I followed the advice given and rubbed some Young Living
Essential Valor Oil on my lower back and then I massaged the bottom
of my feet in the kidneys area (refer to VitaFlex Foot Chart).
Within 5 minutes I had no discomfort when I walked. These oils
are marvelous and they give such quick relief." Doris
Zukerman, Phoenix, AZ
"Recently I was curious and put less than a drop of Young
Living Essential Joy Oil on my finger, stirred it in the water
in a vase full of droopy roses freshly cut from my garden. To
my amazement the flowers perked up in a matter of minutes. I did
this each day the roses lasted 5 days." Jeri Bocci,
"I learned that
Young Living Essential Peppermint Oil relieves an occasional upset
stomach. I placed a very small amount, less than a drop, on the
end of my tongue and in minutes I had relief." Dr.

Doctors Had No Cure For Skin Disease
by Cris Campbell
"I have found it! I have suffered from a skin disease called
Rosacea for about 10 years, My dermatologist has had me on a topical
steroid and 3 dilferent antibiotics over that time period. They
have no "cure" for it and they don't know exactly what
causes it, but they think it might be connected to hormones. Anyway,
I have tried many of the oils in hopes that I could find something
that would help it, but to no avail. I even spent the money and
contacted Dr. DeMarco in Canada and we agreed that I was doing
everything possible with my diet and the oils.
Recently, Young Living
came out with a new product called Prenolone, product code #3731.
1 thought I would give it a try, because I had read so many positive
things about it. As soon as I received it, I put it on my face,
it's a cream, the next day my face was clear. You have never seen
my face when it is real bad, but let me tell you, this is a GOD
SENT!! I have been using it every day since, and my face looks
better than I can ever remember R being with out taking some kind
of drug. It is actually softer and smoother than ever. My husband
was even excited about it because he knows how I have struggled
Other things I experienced
after applying the Prenolone, was a calming effect and a clearer
mental state. I just had to share this with you, as I am NO longer
timid about telling anyone about these products! Prenolone has
changed my life." Cris Campbell
IMMUPOWER be With You!"
"A few weeks ago,
I woke up with a ragingly painful sore throat. It felt like strep
throat, from which I have suffered before. In my past experiences,
I would have been laid up in bed for several days with lingering
effects hanging on for weeks. This time I decided I was too busy
to be sick. I knew that this time I had the weapons on hand to
repel the invaders.
I immediately got out
of bed, took a small glass with a
tablespoon of water, and put in 5-6 drops of Immupower Oil blend.
I swirled it around in my mouth to allow the oil molecules to
penetrate directly into my blood stream through the permeable
lining of my mouth, then gargled is as long as I could, and then
swallowed it. I then repeated this two more times. I was determined
not to be sick.
Results: Within minutes
the pain disappeared as did all symptoms of my sore throat. I
never got sick at all from this microbal attack. Within minutes
the enemy had surrendered, succumbed, and taken flight. Thanks

because the FDA deems Internet advertising to be "labeling,"
any testimonials placed on the Internet are subject to FDA review.
Consequently, testimonials placed on the web that include disease
claims (stated or implied) can cause a product to be classified
as a drug. The FDA may send warning letters to individuals and
entities that are posting testimonials on their websites stating
or implying that the products cured or treated diseases such as
high blood pressure, cancer, osteoporosis, scoliosis, ear infections,
burns, pain, AIDS, general antibacterial claims, etc.
So, when we say a product
helped with pain, it becomes classified as a drug, which of course
it is not. Natural pain relievers are not drugs. They are natural
pain relievers. Thus, many questions can not be answered due to
FDA regulations on "claims." Saying that '"this
product or that plant extract will do this or that" makes
it a claim, and making it a claim makes it a drug. And drugs are
what they sell.
"Young Living Essential Oils makes no claim that any of its
products, essential oils, or supplements can curtail the spread
of a biological or chemical weapon. As of this date, there has
been no testing or verifiable scientific evidence to support the
assertion that the essential oil of thyme will protect against
or stop anthrax. Although some independent researchers have implied
or stated that specific essential oils may be helpful due to the
strength of their natural components, it is against company policy
for any Distributor to make any unapproved, false, or undocumented
health or medical claim.
The tragic events of September 2001 in New York City have led
to widespread fear of exposure to anthrax. While we understand
the desire some of our Distributors may have to help quell these
fears, YLEO wants to state in the strongest terms that we do not
endorse profiteering at the expense of a vulnerable public. We
encourage all YLEO Distributors to maintain a professional demeanor
at all times and to avoid making any claims about our products.
Young Livings oils do have inherent properties that
provide support for normal immune function, but we repeat, there
