migraine / Di-gize

This last Saturday I had a migraine headache they usually last for 3 days to the point I think I’m going to die. I’ve used enzymes, peppermint oil and host of other things and nothing has worked for me personally. This time after much prayer I began to notice that my stomach did not feel right. Then the idea kept coming to my mind to try Di-gize. After it came to mind over and over during the day I finally began to think maybe this is God speaking. So I put 6 drops of Di-gize in an empty capsule and took it, the migraine started going away within minutes and after a couple of hours was completely gone. The next day the idea kept coming to my mind to look in the Essential Oils Desk Reference under migraine headaches and see if Di-gize was listed. So I looked and Di-gize was NOT listed just as I had thought. BUT the very first sentence said, “The vast majority of migraine headaches may be due to colon congestion or poor digestion.” Did I never read that before and just go straight to the list of recommendations??? I don’t know how I missed that sentence but I know how bad migraines are and I want everyone that has them or knows someone who does to consider trying Di-gize. As a Young Living member a bottle of Di-gize is $32.00. If your stomach is what is causing you or someone you love to have a migraine this is a very low price to pay for relief and considering how many drops is in a bottle it is economical too. I truly, truly hope this e-mail helps a fellow suffer.

Peppermint - flu

Today we were just sitting on a park bench looking out at the Mediterranean Sea. A big Israeli family came to picnic. We noticed that their little boy was very very lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink or play. Eventually,the mom approached us and asked in Hebrew about the location of a pharmacy that is open today because her little boy was sick with a fever and a headache. We asked her to speak English if she could and so she carefully rephrased her question so that we could fully understand. We told her there were no stores open because it is The first day of the Biblical Celebration called the Feast of Tabernacles, but we told her we had natural medicine for her son if she would like to use it. I explained the lavender oil and what to do with it. She did what I said. Then |I gave her peppermint for his feet and she did that. In less than 5 minutes he was up and playing and full of energy and was happy. All of the family members thanked us over and over again and the grandpa was even blowing us kisses as they all drove away.
They gave us a bag of their wonderful fresh dates!!!!! What a treat.

hip pain

I have had very deep and severe lower left hip nerve pain for many years. Last night my girlfriend applied clove, wintergreen, peppermint and copaiba oils to the area that is sore. The effects are amazing. The pain was gone in minutes, and a cooling relieving sensation lasted for at least the next several hours til I drifted to sleep.

I am now using the oils and managing the pain when it flares up, and they work miracles for me.

skin rash / copabia

Copabia oil had been used in the South American jungles for over 800 years by the medicine men of many villages. It can be purchased in local drug stores as well, often as an ointment.
The difference between Y.L.'s and the "raw" oils is that our's is refined and distilled. I personally place a few drops a few times daily to calm down acid reflex. It is also excellent for skin rashes. I cleared up my leg rash in a few weeks that has been troubling me for over a year. I just placed a few drops neat on the rash nightly.

inflamed teeth and jaw

Recently, one of my teeth began to ache. It felt inflamed, my jaw was tense and I was in a great deal of pain. I began to soak a gauze pad with Thieves Mouth Wash, along with Thieves and clove oil and placed it along my gum and around the hurting tooth. That helped. I was also applying oils Thieves, clove, PanAway, and copaiba directly with a Q- tip frequently. That was helpful as well. I was also using a lot of roll-on's, especially RutaVaLa, since the vetiver and valerian are helpful for pain.

Over the course of a week, I began to vary what I was using and increased the frequency. But the best and quickest response I received was when I began to use supplements like Sulferzyme, Be-Fit, Longevity, Thieves clove and copaiba oil in a capsule several times a day. So in less then 4 days I went from extreme pain 8 or 9 out of 10, to little or no pain. Thanks to the incredible formulations of our Young Living supplements, I am pain free and able to enjoy eating again. I am so grateful.

Mold in the house

A Levitical Mold Remedy

Leviticus 14: 34-53 describes a problem with “diseased houses” whose walls have “greenish or reddish spots” which may be “deeper than the surface.” Of course, you will recognize that the Bible is describing an infestation of mold or mildew in the house. In modern terminology, this would be called the “sick building syndrome.”

The presence of toxic mold in your environment, especially in the heating and cooling ducts, should not be taken lightly. Prolonged exposure to toxic mold of any kind can result in serious illnesses.

According to the landmark book by Ed and Jacqui Close entitled, “Nature’s Mold RX: The Non-Toxic Solution to Toxic Mold,” the presence of mold in the one’s personal space, at home, work, or office, has been correlated with many disease conditions, including rashes, dermatitis, pain and inflammation of the linings of the mouth and throat, burning sensations around the eyes and in the nose, tightness of the chest, chronic coughing, bloody discharges from nasal passages, dandruff, diarrhea, earaches, hair loss, flu-like symptoms, fever, headache, dizziness, vomiting, asthma, allergy-like symptoms, sinus infections, respiratory congestion, sleep disorders, and fatigue.

Constant inhaling and exposure to mold can also affect brain function, causing loss of memory, personality changes, and slurred speech. Mold has also been implicated with such extremes as seizures, cancer, kidney failure, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Mold is, perhaps, one of the most commonly overlooked causes of sickness leading doctors to treat the symptoms in the person instead of the causes in the home or workplace.

Dr. Close’s book outlines a protocol using Thieves Blend Oil that can be 100% effective in solving mold problems. His book and DVD on mold and its remedy are available at www.RaindropTraining.com. Thieves Blend contains the oils of Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus radiata, Lemon, and Rosemary. However, the Bible suggests another oil blend: Cedarwood and Hyssop.

I have not personally tried cedarwood and hyssop for mold remediation, nor do I know anyone who has. The Biblical blend of oils for mold has not been tested scientifically while the “Close Protocol” using Thieves Blend has been thoroughly tried and tested.

The important points to take from the suggested treatment of a diseased house in the Book of Leviticus are twofold. One is that mold is an ancient problem, as old as mold itself. And Two, that the ancient remedy (oils of cedarwood and hyssop) and the modern remedy (oils of cinnamon, clove, eucalyptus, lemon, and rosemary) are both from essential oils.

As the tests and experiments of Dr. Close have shown so conclusively, nature’s remedies for mold are far more effective and superior to any solutions afforded by man-made chemicals. Once again, God’s creations are found to be the best.

Dr David Stewart skin problems

The fourteenth chapter of Leviticus describes a blend of essential oils composed of 50% cedarwood and 50% hyssop. This blend of pure essential oils has a variety of

Leviticus 14:54-56 suggests the blend for various skin ailments such as itches, scales, scall, risings, swellings, scabs, rashes, lesions, eczema, pimples, eruptions, skin spots, and/or any "leprous" disease, which could include dermatitis, psoriasis, skin cancers, and even leprosy, itself. The actual terms expressed in this passage depend on which version of the Bible you are reading, but they all refer to various unhealthy conditions manifesting on the skin.

The Biblical remedy is very interesting. The Scriptures prescribe applications of the oil blend to the right ear, the right thumb, and the right big toe for these diseases. These are all emotional reflex points for the right brain through which emotional issues can be resolved.

The Levitical instructions do not to say to apply the oils to the affected areas of the skin, which are the manifest symptoms of the disease. Instead, they say to apply the oils to the release points through which one would address the emotional roots of the conditions, rather than the skin conditions themselves.

There is some dispute over the exact application of the oils to the right ear. Some English versions of the Bible say “top of the ear” while others say “the ear lobe.” Meanwhile, the Hebrew version of the Old Testament simply says “ear” while some Jewish customs recommend applying the oil around the back of the ear. Each of these locations on the ear connote different emotional issues, but the point is that these application sites are all emotional and are not the sites of the rashes, eczema, or other manifestations on the skin.

I have not personally tested the Leviticus prescription for skin diseases. However, it is interesting to note the Biblical preference for addressing underlying emotional and spiritual issues over treating the surface symptoms directly on site. However, I would think that applying these oils directly to the affected areas of the skin might work well also. One of the wonderful things about essential oils is that you may experiment with them safely.

There are also some Jewish ceremonies described in Leviticus 14 that are prescribed to go with the anointings with the oils, but I expect that the oils would do their work without the rituals for which one can substitute a simple prayer for healing.

clean your oven

I even use thieves to clean my oven. Just pure on
full strength and let set for an hour and come back and it will just wipe out. No scrubbing is needed.

poison ivy

Then this week my best heckler, the girl who sits next to me and smells every thing I do, came to me. She ask what do you have for poison ivy? I did not have my reference book with me so I pulled out my favorite trusty fix everything oil THIEVES, and gave her a few drops. after I had her wash off the Windex
she had been putting on it ( she says it dries it up) but it was not drying it at all. I told her it would only dry it up because it had alcohol in it and that Windex is not a good choice. Well guess what, the poison Ivy just started shriveling away she was really pleased. Every one should have a bottle of Lavender and a
bottle of Thieves, if they can afford nothing else.

for infected big wound

Wound Care:

Clean and debride the wound on a daily basis. Use sterile 4x4 to clean the site. Do not let the scab form on wound. It needs to heal from the inside out.

Put 4 or 5 drops of lavender followed by four or five drops of Melrose, Thieves, and Frankincese.

If it starts stinging dilute with V6. You can use V6 between the melrose,Thieves, and Frankincense.

If Frankincense stings this means there is infection present.

Use animal scents ointment to seal and protect the wound. Place a non sick 4x4 over the wound site to prevent from drying out.

Melrose is an antiseptic, repairs and regenerates new tissue

Thieves is antimicrobial

Lavender heals and protects the skin

Frankincense is immune stimulating and anitbacterial

Put thieves on bottons of feet. 5 drops of thieves in 1 tsp of v6 and massage on thymus gland 2-3 times a day

Apply immune stimulating blend on throat and chest.

Immune blend

10 drops of lemon

8 drops of oregano

5 drops of mountain savory

This is to combat the infection

4oz of ningxia red, once a day, 4 inner defense a day, take with food and water. If upset stomach occurs drink 2oz of kefir before taking

3 longevity capsules a day. Do this for two weeks. Next to weeks, 1 oz of juice, 2 inner defense a day and 3 longevity caps. Then evaluate.

"About 7 months ago, I started experiencing pain all around my left
knee a few days after I went skiing. Since I'd never before
experienced chronic body pain, I assumed it would go away. After
about a month, it still hadn't passed, so I tried using PanAway. If
anything, the added "heat" from applying PanAway aggravated the knee.
So I stopped using any oils and would occasionally take an ibuprofen
after long walks or time on my feet. I became more conscious of how I
was using the knee and I avoided any positions or activities which I
thought might hurt it. Regardless, the pain persisted. After another
couple months, I went to see my primary physician, who told me I had
tendonitis, which had likely been aggravated by the skiing. I was
told not to do any stretching exercises (which meant discontinuing
daily yoga), but that I should start swimming and/or using a
recumbent bicycle, to "retrain" the ligaments and tendons into proper
alignment. She explained to me that otherwise, the ligaments and
tendons would build up compensatory scar tissue in a misaligned
fashion. Well, I didn't have a pool or a bike, and though I finally
bought a bike, I have yet to use it. Fast forward another few months.
A couple of days ago, I bought a bottle of Palo Santo, which is an
essential oil of a South American tree commonly known as "Holy Wood."
Within a few minutes after applying the oil, the constant pain I was
experiencing disappeared. I applied the oil one more time, the next
day, just for good measure. Four days later, I'm happy and amazed to
report that the pain hasn't reappeared. There's still sensitivity if
I stretch the knee at oblique angles, but all of the chronic pain is
gone. Wow! I always read testimonials with a degree of skepticism.
This was no "miracle cure for cancer" or the like, but I would
strongly recommend that folks with tendonitis give Palo Santo a try.
I'll report back in a week or two.--Robert

emergency heart and BP

Essential Oils and the Heart - Why I Always Carry Aroma Life!
The dramatic story below instantly made the essential oil blend called Aroma Life part of my emergency kit. Essential oils have been around since the beginning of time, and each succeeding generation finds additional ways of using them.

An emergency on a Boeing 777 between Honolulu and San Francisco
Over the speakers came an urgent request for a physician. Of the two doctors who responded, one had none of the tools of her trade with her. The other was armed with a stethoscope, a blood pressure cup, and two bottles of essential oils!
The passenger with the emergency was disoriented, babbling in a language the doctors didn't understand, and was trying to tear off his shirt. The second doctor diagnosed him as hyposic (lack of oxygen to the brain), and having high blood pressure because his heart was racing. This medical doctor pulled out a bottle of the Peace & Calming essential oil blend, told the passenger to breathe deeply, and his breathing slowed. Next, he sprinkled the Aroma Life blend to the man's chest and neck. The unprepared physician told the prepared physician not to do this, but he did anyway. Pretty soon, the man began to breathe more slowly and became increasingly calm.
By this time, the captain needed to know whether the flight should continue to San Francisco or return to Honolulu. Both medical doctors then confirmed that the passenger's blood pressure had returned to normal!
By the time the plane landed, the passenger with the emergency was composed and was speaking calmly in English.
How can this be?
Aroma Life was designed to lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and improve cardiovascular, lymphatic, and circulatory systems. Here's what is in it.
1. Helichrysum - essential oil reference works credit this oil with improving circulation, reducing blood viscosity, reducing plaque deposits from the veins and arteries, and more. Some sources also state that it assists in regulating cholesterol.
2. Ylang Ylang - is developing a history of being used to help balance heart function. Some health professionals also use it to treat tachycardia (rapid heart bear) and high blood pressure.
3. Marjoram - known for its ability to relieve muscle spasms. It is also said to calm nervous tension and to help regenerate smooth muscle tissue.
4. Cypress - is known for circulation above all else, but according to the Essential Oils Desk Reference, it also strengthens the vascular system, and reduces edema and water retention.
My experience
Whenever I feel any discomfort in my chest, I apply the Aroma Life blend, and the discomfort always goes away in minutes. My parents also use it, as do a number of people who know about this special blend.
How to Use Aroma Life
I love the aroma of this blend, so I really enjoy just inhaling it from the bottle or wearing it as a perfume. However, when I have a chest pain, I put a couple of drops on my finger and rub it where the chest pain is.

thieves and dog teeth

I use Thieves mouthwash, diluted 50/50 with purified water. You just need a little bit. Soak up with cotton ball and rub over teeth, squeezing the mouthwash into their mouth.

sparkling dog teeth

I also use Thieves mouthwash. We have a 10 year old miniature schnauzer who was rescued from a puppy mill. Due to neglect and malnutrition, he lost over half of his teeth. We raw feed our dogs and while the raw bones keep the other dogs' teeth sparkling clean, the schnauzer doesn't have enough opposing teeth to really get the job done. A veterinary naturopath suggested Thieves mouthwash to keep his teeth clean and free of plaque so once per day I dip a Q-tip in the mouthwash and swab his teeth with it. He doesn't like it but lets me do it. His teeth are cleaner now than when we got him and I'm thinking he will be able to keep those he has left.

Thank God for Young Living!

dog gums and teeth

Hello Oilers,
I am looking for suggestions on which which oil could be used on a dogs gum and teeth. My friend has a dog that is old and is having problems with his gums. I don't know much about oils to use on animals, especially for inside the mouth area, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Friday, May 7, 2010


Janice Trachtman submitted the following tip:

"I find rubbing a drop or two of Purification™ essential oil on my hands, cupping my hands over my face, and breathing deeply several times eases sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, and my runny nose from reactions to pollen in the spring."


"Yes my wife and I have had success with our son Matthew who has asthma. It only acts up when he gets a fever or cold and we usually have to take him to the Doctor or emergency room where he was in the hospital for 5 days last Easter. Well to make a this story short Matthew started running a fever a couple of weeks ago and sure enough his asthma was kicking in after a very hard and restless Friday night. In the morning we were ready to take him to the Doctor. I said let me try this lavender oil. As God as my judge within a matter of seconds applying the oil to his feet and on the top of his feet for the bronchial tubes his breathing smoothed out and the little fellow fell for a restful sleep. Ellen and I were in total amazement all we could do was look at one another and say unbelievable. We now put lavender on his feet every other day and all is well."

jelly fish sting

I believe you will enjoy and benefit from the following testimonial. I have had MANY MANY situations with friends and family, where YL Essential Oils have helped us through a medical crisis. Scorpion stings,( pain gone, NO swelling after using Purification) cuts, burns, sports injuries , headaches, bruises, recuperating from surgeries ( with minimal scarring, no infection, faster recovery) , accidents and more.
On a beach in Hawaii, I was able to offer essential oils to a parent consoling a very young child who had just been stung by a jelly fish. He stopped crying right after inhaling the oils ( Trauma Life, Lavender, Purification is what I had on hand), his father put the oils on the wound, the pain subsided and the redness and swelling went down, until they were able to get him to a medical facility. I had just heard from a local person that morning that local jelly fish stings could be very serious and even cause death in certain individuals. From many years of study about the oils, reading about them and hearing how the oils worked for others, I knew what to do. Many folks are able to avoid a potential tragedy just using the oil they have in their pockets. It helps to be well read, but if you are just beginning, trust your intuition, if you offer assistance.
When my son, Christopher, was younger and fell on a sprinkler head ( severing most of his ear) I was able to stop the profuse bleeding IMMEDIATELY with Trauma Life oil, which avoided him going in to shock, and stabilized BOTH of us as I drove to the emergency care. The medical people were astounded that he was so calm, not in pain, not bleeding, and told me he MUST have had ' professional treatment' before he got there. After the surgery to re-attach his ear, they predicted a very high possibility of infection and swelling, in addition to scarring. I used various oils on him , post surgery. NONE of these predictions came true.
I mentioned this story in a documentary several years ago (" Ancient Secrets of Life") and a person who watched it , told me her mind quickly flashed to that advice after a large HORSE FELL ON HER ! Cherie Ross says that her immediate recall of my story, as well as the person running to grab the Trauma Life, possibly saved her life. She was able to stay alert and calm until help arrived.
Hoping you never have to go thru trauma such as the above, but I recommend YOU DO carry YL essential oils with you, you never know when YOU might be in the right place at the right time to help someone out.

barefoot in the park

I was walking barefoot in my back yard and stepped on a palm frond. The spike from the frond, went into the side of my foot penetrating over an inch in and breaking off. The spike was completely embedded in the side of my foot. Since I could not pull the frond out, my first thoughts were, I will have to go to the emergency room, sit for hours, pay a lot of money, have someone cut the frond out, stand a chance of having an infection because of the open wound or have muscle, nerve and tissue damage due to the cutting.

The trip to the emergency room was only a fleeting thought. My next thought was "What would Gary Young do?" I remembered hearing Gary say that Thieves would actually draw out splinters. I doused the area with Thieves and Purification and within a few minutes the swelling around the area went down and the end of the spike began to protrude from the wound. I was able to remove it with a pair of tweezers. Immediately, it began to bleed profusely. After the bleeding cleaned the wound, I poured Helichrysum directly onto the wound and the bleeding stopped right away.

At this point the initial emergency was over, but the pain was so severe that I could not walk on my foot. I then called my mom, who along with my dad are Silvers in Young Living. True to form, the first words out of my mom's mouth after hearing my story was, " Are you taking pictures? This will make a great testimony!" My response was "NO!". Of course, she then reminded me to check the Essential Oils Desk Reference (EODR) for oils and supplements that would address pain, nerve damage, and muscle damage. Now looking back, I really should have taken pictures. The change between day 1 and day 3 was really amazing!

In addition to being very glad that I had an EODR to use for reference, I was extremely grateful that I had followed Debra Raybern's advice at a recent seminar and purchased the Aroma Complete kit. Instead of going down the list that the EODR suggested saying, "No, I don't have that. No, I don't have that.". I was able to pull out the oils that I needed immediately and didn't have to get on the telephone to see if someone else had the oils or order the oils and have them shipped overnight. I can't impress on you enough that you need to have your emergency kit available at all times!

I used many oils such as Cypress, Idaho Balsam Fir, and Lemongrass to help with the swelling and inflammation. I used PanAway, Clove and Relieve It to help with the pain. I also took NingXia Red and Inner Defense to help with inflammation and make sure no infection developed. I took BLM and Sufurzyme to aid in the healing.

I had to stay off my foot the rest of the day. The next day, I stayed at home from work and kept my foot elevated. By the second day, I was able to go to work on crutches. Even though my foot was extremely sensitive for the next few days, I was able to go on with my normal activities. The wound healed with no infection and virtually no scar. I did not have to take a tetanus shot, antibiotics or spend hundreds of dollars going to a medical facility. I also only missed one day at the office. I was so grateful that I had the EODR, Gary Young's teachings and the Young Living products when I needed them. Thank you Gary Young and Young Living Essential Oils!

been in the rain

After several days of helping to build a building in the rain John came down with
sinus drip and a hacky cough. Putting RC and Wintergreen directly onto the chest
stopped the cough and gave him restful sleep
