I started down this oily path, in December 2013, because of our son. He was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease at age 11. For the last two years we have tried everything to help him. But the treatments only seem to make him sicker. At that time, all I wanted was to help off set some of the side-effects. After researching different companies, I went with Young Living because of their purity and "Seed to Seal Promise." The more I've seen our son feel better, the more I use them on children, my husband and myself. Allergies, colds, burns, insomnia, and pain management are just a few of the everyday household uses. I was very skeptical in the beginning, but you can't argue with the results that my family has received. Now I can't imagine not using them everyday.
