For those of you who have not tried this product (Rainbows in a Bottle).. do yourself, your body or your clients a favor and get it now! This stuff is really a MIRACLE in a bottle!

Hi Amy, I LOVE the lotion (Essential Oil Blend) you made up for me. My shoulder is so much better. I slept all the way through the night last night...no sleeping pills, no muscle relaxers, no pain meds!!!
Sue from Hilton, NY
Our family is doing great with these (Thieves Household) cleaners. I learned so much from you. We love you Amy. Keep up the good work.

LOVED your (Home Green Home Happy Hour) class last night. I did my first load of laundry with Borax this morning and my bathroom is shining with Thieves.
Beth from Henrietta, NY
I am an RN, as well as acupuncturist...Rainbow in a Bottle is wonderful for chronic pain..I have a jar at work, home and car! Say Boo-to-the-Flu is also wonderful.
Patricia from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Amy,Thank you so much for helping my husband out for my mom's gift. It is perfect for her and just what I was thinking. He was very impressed with your salt scrub (Natural Hand Remedy) and has been talking it up to everyone. Thanks again.
Lauren from Rochester, NY
Thought you'd like to know that my kids reach for your products for any ailments now. Molly loves her feet massaged with that awesome sinus/peppermint blend at night. Patrick loves Face and Body Butter rubbed on his feet.
Gretchen from Cranford, New Jersey
Yes! It's (Face and Body Butter) wonderful. It does do a great job removing makeup and my face and lips love it too! It helped even out my skin tone. People have noticed and complimented me. Thank you face and body butter!Debbie from Canandaigua, NY
Mandy from Victor, NY
I have made a ton of changes in our house, and we all feel great about it. I got rid of all cleaning products and laundry detergent and now only have my homemade mixes with vinegar, Thieves (household cleaner), Borax, and baking soda. My husband went from chronically itching to no itching at all! It is amazing! My kids love the peppermint mix (Say Boo to the Flu) on their backs and feet for congestion. This has been a great change. I am going to make all of my own hand soaps next so I can get rid of my Dial pumps. It is actually very fun! Thank you so much for the incredible information and for helping to make our home a safer one!
I love the Face and Body Butter, and slather myself up before my long runs. The scrub (Natural Hand Remedy) smells luscious and I use it after my swim workouts. Best,
Beth from Rochester, NY
Hi Amy, I love this stuff (Rainbows in a Bottle), brought it to Wisconsin and my friend tried it, now she's a fan too. Thanks again.Christina from Fairport, NY
I was at the Green Living Seminar (Home Green Home) in Rochester. I've changed all my cleaners and used them this weekend, they worked great and my hubby is on board, too. Thanks for such an informational session!
Jenna from Rochester, NY
I had severe sinusitis this weekend - used my RC (essential oil blend), along with healthy happy lung (essential oil personalized blend) from Organica Jane), applying about every 3 hours and started on Wednesday and sinus infection almost gone and no antibiotics. Organica Jane products do work, and I would recommend highly. Also, if you haven't gotten the homemade remedy for dried cracked feet and hands (Natural Hand Remedy)... it's a must for you especially with the winter. Thanks Organica Jane.
Lynne from Canandaigua, NY
I pulled my back out last week, and was traveling. I happened to have "Rainbows in a Bottle." I decided to have that a try since it worked on my hand, and I wouldn't be near my chiropractor until Monday. Guess what, no chiro!!! It helped me tremendously. I'm a fan!!!
Christine from Fairport, NY
Just want you to know that I no longer use cough syrup for my daughter. I use raw honey (a teaspoon full for a bad cough) and it works like a charm. Thanks so much for all your loving guidance. I really do feel like my family is healthier and happier because of your influence.
Janet from Baldwinsville, NY
My friend absolutely LOVED the cream (Essential Oil blend, which you created) for her son with neuroblastoma.Amy from Pittsford, NY
Thanks Amy! Joe loves the butter (Face and Body Butter)!
Tamarie from Canandaigua, NY
Dear Amy Jane: Thank you so much for the Rainbows in a Bottle, which I received via my daughter. I am thinking it is helping with the pain of my hip, bursitis and the aroma is outstanding! Thanks again,

My 8-year old daughter, recently had a wart growing out of her index finger, right under the fingernail. Because of where it was located, it kept breaking open, and I was worried about putting any medicine on it, concerned that it would sting and/or burn. I consulted Amy Jane to see if she knew of any natural ways to remove a wart. She made me a blend of essential oils and told me to put a drop of it on a band-aid and cover the wart. I did this for 4 days, and the wart is completely gone!! No stinging, no burning!! Thank you Amy Jane!!!!
You know I love everything you do! I absolutely love Say Boo to the Flu. I use it on both of my children when they are sick.
Amy has such a comfortable, yet confident way about her and she has been a pleasure to work with. She has wonderful advice and has helped my family reduce the amount of chemical toxins in our house tremendously and has helped us move to a much safer way to clean.
The best part is that everything she has recommended, actually works!
Thanks Amy for a great (Home Green Home) workshop and your support.
Pat from Tarpon Springs, Florida
I feel that you have opened my eyes to so much. And, I am interested in buying more of your sea salt scrub (Natural Hand Remedy). I loved it.
Thanks Amy, there is no sign of that lump on the back of my leg now. I started to use a drop or two (of the Essential Oil blend you made for me) on the one on my arm and it, too, is disappearing.
Lynne from Pennsylvania
The essential oil blend from our consultation is providing a soothing relief of tension in my jaw area. I feel a heat wave there occasionally, but it calms down soon after as if a layer of tension was lifted, it feels lighter with no pain.
After applying the blend over my heart area for several weeks, I have noticed a decrease in emotional waves of loss and grief and when they do come it's less intense, and strength and balance return very quickly. Thank you Amy Jane for my amazing Essential Oil Blend.
Susan from Trumansburg, NY
Oh Amy ... Thank You!!! The Best party (Home Green Home workshop) I have ever been too!!! Learned a lot and changed the way I clean. I use to clean houses and hated using all those chemicals to clean. I have been following your recipes and found they WORK SO MUCH BETTER! I also noticed I dust less....LOL
Lisa from Rochester, NY
I just wanted to let you know how I have been using (Essential) oils to speed up the healing process post-surgery/biopsy. First of all, the nurse had trouble with my IV and told me I would have a large bruise on my hand where she attempted to insert the needle. It was swelling in the hospital. As soon as I got home, I applied Lavender (essential oil) and continue to at least twice a day, and I have not had a bruise at all!
Secondly, I have been applying Lavender, Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) and Cypress to the area on my breast that has been swollen due to the surgery. I use jojoba and about 3 - 4 drops of each essential oil and apply morning and night. I am noticing a significant decrease in swelling and bruising in the area and feel so much better.
Laura from Victor, NY
Hello! I met you at the Holistic Moms meeting this month - you helped me create an (essential oil blend) lotion for my son's tummy problems. i wanted to let you know that his tummy is doing much better and i have incorporated lavender & jojoba into his nightly routine and his eczema has gotten so much better as well. thank you so much!
Dalia from Hilton, NY
The Thieves (household cleaner concentrate) worked GREAT in my HE machine. I had some wet towels and washcloths that didn't get washed right away and smelled a bit musty even after washing. Since Thieves is so good with molds, I thought it might be a good application to get the musty smell out of the towels. It did the trick!
Thank you for sending my friend her Face and Body Butter. She really likes it, she has never been able to find anything to help her with her face problem till I introduced her to your products.
Mary from Seneca Falls, NY
Wonderfully informative meeting! Thanks,
Gabrielle, Rochester, NYI continue to try and incorporate Essential Oils into every day, and I think of you every time I use them. My daughter is obsessed with Valor. She is now requesting that I rub her feet and legs with it (diluted with about 3 to 4 drops of jojoba) every night before she goes to bed. I truly believe that it helps her sleep more deeply and soundly. Also, I will never be without Lemon essential oil ever again. It is a wonder and it removes just about any sticky substance from any surface without leaving a mark. Just 5 - -6 drops on a cotton ball does the trick. It even got Liquid Nails off of our bathroom cabinet and is great for removing the stick residue left behind by stickers that manufacturers put on mirrors, windows, shower doors, etc.
Janet from Baldwinsville, NY
We love our scrubs and lotion. You have inspired me again!!
Denise from Newark, NY
Loving my Thieves!!! and the cream (Face and Body Butter) is doing wonders for my wrinkles! :)
Jill from Victor, NY
Thank you so much for letting me try the Thieves Household Cleaner. It is fabulous for me because it is non-toxic, and it doesn't bother my allergies. The (essential) oils give it a wonderful scent but not like a perfume odor which always gets me coughing and wheezing. I do prefer natural products that will not harm humans, pets, and the earth! I have used it in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry area and it even took out a stubborn spot on my carpet! It is great and thanks again for letting me try it!!
Sue from Farmington, NY
I really enjoyed learning about all your information (Home Green Home).
I just got the new Deep Relief Roll-on. It's AWESOME. I used it Saturday night before bed to sooth my "headache" But seriously, it's awesome, I never use asperin anymore!
I need a refill on my (Essential Oil) blend I made. I have so many compliments on my vanilla blend!! I need more!!
Kristin from Canandaigua, NY
Thanks for opening up a whole new world in my life with your blend of essential oil the your blended for me when I met you at the sports experience event for Gilda's club. Peace,

Hi Amy! I am having great luck with Thieves essential oil blend. I love it. I am so glad you came in and had a workshop. I learned a lot. Getting rid of the mold is good but having the M-grain work on the migraines (for 80% of them) is even better!! and I love the smell of it. Thanks and keep up the great work!

In February, I broke my shoulder in a bad skiing accident. The pain has been excruciating and there have been problems associated with muscle spasms in my neck, shoulder and back. Drs. have been able to do nothing to alleviate the situation.
A friend suggested your "Rainbow in a Bottle" salve. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Within 10 minutes of application, the cramping and pain immediately began to subside, and the swelling reduced significantly. When I get up in the morning after an evening application, I no longer have severe cramping, and the mobility in my shoulder is returning. Your formula (Rainbow in a Bottle) has done something doctors could not, and thanks to you, I am back on the road to recovery and able to tolerate the pain, which has subsided significantly. Since using your salve, my rate of healing has tripled and I am able to get through the day without focusing on the constant pain.
I am so thankful for "Rainbow in a Bottle" and have already recommended it to a few friends. I plan to order more shortly for a number of applications. Bless you,
Glenn from Rochester, NY

Thanks for your lecture (Home Green Home) on Sunday! I have been using some of the cleaning formulas you provided on your sheet and wanted to tell you they work great! What appeals to me about this stuff is that just simple chemistry with ingredients that are found the Table of Elements making our homes clean. It has been under my nose for years; thanks for helping me put them together!

February 28, 2010I loved your class on Friday night; we can always learn something new every time we see you.Odette from Fabius, NY
My neighbor who is a vet tech suggested I bring my dog in for an appt. because she thought my dogs ears smelled "yeasty" and my dog would not stop shaking her head. It was a weekend, no immediate appointments, so I decided to try spraying some Thieves spray on a cotton ball and cleaning her ears with it, then followed that with some "Animal Scents Ointment" on another cotton ball, smearing the inside of her ear with a light film of Animal Sense. She stopped shaking her head in about 15 minutes, without a vet appt or medicine. I have used this technique on her a number of times with great success. (I also stopped allowing my other dog to lick this dogs ears, I don't want any moisture in her ears).

February 23, 2010Hi Amy, Both of my girls have had a cold for the past week so I have been rubbing them both with the (Essential Oil) blend (you formulated) at bedtime. They really seem to like the attention of getting it done and it seems to really relieve their congestion through the night. Thank you!Fiona from Honeoye Falls, NY
February 19, 2010 I pulled out that little sample of Say Boo to the Flu I got from the retreat yoga session, because I'm all congested today. I used it on my neck and wrists and it smells so wonderful and is working great to clear up my sinuses. I looked you up because I was thinking of you and grateful that you had given me some of that wonderful stuff!! :)
January 28, 2010Amy, Thanks so much for all of the fun and education on Tuesday evening. I learned a lot and had so much fun. I really liked your calm and patient energy and your supportive feedback on our blends. I have enjoyed my "Sacred Space" blend for my bath.Alison from Rochester, NY
January 27, 2010Thank you for offering the class, we both had a great time!
Michelle from Stanley, NY
January 27, 2010Amy Jane, Thanks for a great class last night. As always, when you begin to speak your knowledge and passion, I do not want you to stop. It is inspiring and so informative, and I love the "news you can use format" that allows us to think of more ways to incorporate oils into our day. Thanks Amy Jane!Gail from Rochester, NY
January 6, 2010As for the "Say Boo To The Flu", you have won us over! When I first bought this from you at the Geneva Farmers Market, my 16 year old daughter had the common cold. I suggested she rub it on her chest and neck and she did, with a bit of reservation... but now she asks for it by name! She knows it works and she (and me, too!) would much rather use the natural essential oils versus popping pills that show slim-to-no results. Every time I talk with you, I learn more fascinating tidbits that really make a pleasant day-to-day difference.

October 1, 2009
Amy Jane, Wow! I loved the workshop (Home Green Home). I clean homes for a living and thought I was doing a good job of green cleaning for my clients. Now, because of your workshop I can do the best job possible. The print-outs of commonly used cleaners is a real eye-opener. Your workshops are going to help a lot of people feel better. I know that I personally have improved health from using Thieves and white vinegar,and some of my clients have told me - I know Kathy has been here because when I open my door the house smells so good! Thanks so much for helping me to share this info with others.I am a distributor with Young Living and because of this workshop, I will be able to help others understand more potential benefits than I would have without your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!Kathy from Palmyra

August 1, 2009I have known Amy Jane for at least 5 years and always find her ready to support friends and clients in natural healing. She is very knowledgeable about essential oils that would be helpful, thorough in asking questions, works from her heart, and is organized. Besides that, her classes are fun, especially when making unique essential oil blends for specific needs.

July 10, 2009I used Organica Jane's "I Haven't Got time for the Pain" essential oil blend. I have arthritis from laying carpet and had pain in my knee for 10 - 12 years. I now do not need my brace and the pain has decreased finally. Thank you.
Richard from Newark, NY
July 7, 2009Here's a testimonial about the effects the oils had on Pueblo (our dog):
Our black lab Pueblo developed diarrhea and was throwing up a few weeks ago and was also not eating. After a $500 trip to the vet, they gave us a list of possible things she could have and prescribed antibiotics for her. For the next 4 days she took her meds and her condition gradually cleared up and she eventually started eating normally. Well, low and behold the condition returned the other day and so I read in my Essential Oils Desk Reference about how to apply oils to animals and recommended oils for diarrhea. I didn't have Di-Gize or Thieves but I did have Fennel, Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint (Lavender just for calming purposes). I mixed 1 drop of each with about a teaspoon of olive oil and applied the mixture to the bottoms of her paws. I did this twice the first day and the next day her appetite was back and the diarrhea and vomiting had stopped. If only I had tried that the first time around I'd have $500 to invest in more oils!!! YAY - I love my oils!!!Wendy from Fort Collins, CO
June 27, 2009

I love the results that I've had from using Organica Jane's Body Butter! I live in Colorado and not only am I exposed to a lot of sun, but it's also stronger because of our elevation. I've always had a lot of freckles and now that I'm older they're looking more like liver spots! After using the Body Butter I've noticed the larger spots have decreased in size, plus it's helping to keep my wrinkles at bay! Now that I'm nearing 40, I'm taking especially good care of my skin. By using a good sunscreen and cleanser along with Amy's Body Butter, I think I'll be able to manage turning 40 okay :o)Wendy from Fort Collins, CO

That Face and Body Butter is fantastic - I wash with my "special" oil, then put the butter on!!! WOW I don't need anything else - this is the best!!Karen from Clifton Springs
I think the workshop was eye-opening and since that time I have changed most of my cleaning products. I previously was using Thieves household cleaner regularly as well as the Lemon essential oil/vinegar mixture for windows, but the most important change is eliminating Scrubbing Bubbles and Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I now use baking soda (or Borax) and Thieves. Scrubbing Bubbles makes my husband sick so he never could help clean the bathroom and now he can. Hurray!!!
Jill from Victor, NY
Dear Amy--Your class was inspiring and eye-opening to say the least. You have done the research for us and provided many facts that have been actually hidden from consumers about the products we use on a daily basis. We know about getting things in eyes or ingesting obviously poisonous substances. But who knew that just having a bottle of something would allow the toxins in that product to permeate the atmosphere in our homes just by sitting there on a shelf? And who knew that these breathed-in toxins find a place to lurk in our very own fat cells? It's maddening to realize that companies are not required to label every single item in their products, so there are ingredients that we are not aware of. And we often don't even pay attention or realize the danger of the substances that ARE on the label because we have bought into the beautiful presentation of some products as being "natural" or "green" and therefore safe. So many ingredients that ARE mentioned can be just as dangerous to our health as the ones that have been covered up! And you taught us not to believe everything we see as truly safe just because it is advertised as such. I was shocked to find that good old-fashioned Ajax cleanser has ingredients that are proven to cause respiratory distress, allergies, lymphoma (blood cancer) and malignant tumors! And my favorite laundry detergent (that I don't buy as often since it is so expensive now) --TIDE--has ingredients that cause asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, liver damage, and even depression!
I have gone through the house and removed many bottles that have been on my shelves for years just in case I need them. NOt to mention that I have continually replaced the ones near the front. My cupboards suddenly have more room and I am so excited that I am doing something good for my home. I am thrilled knowing that Thieves (that smells so heavenly) is actually disinfecting my countertops better than bleach. It's hard to let go of the Tilex, but I tried the vinegar and salt/lemon on my bathtub--and it works!
I look forward to the next process of diffusing oils into the environment knowing that all molds and even their dead spores will be eliminated. I have been very interested in the idea of mold presences as causing allergies and other illnesses. I know that remediation teams go into buildings (particularly those built more airtight in the 1980s) and use harsh chemicals to rid the building of its "sick building syndrome" --but I did not realize that within weeks, those molds reinfest with a vengeance. It was so interesting, enlightening, -- and yes, inspiring of hope-- to know that the use of essential oils for only three days in the atmosphere of one of these "sick" environments cleared the area of all molds and spores and that when tested several weeks later, there was no evidence of regrowth. This is amazing! I can't wait to get started in my own home!
Thanks for your clarion call to our overly-advertised world to simplify and get back to basics and a more natural way. Your contribution to our education can improve the quality of our lives if we apply what you have taught us, and I'm sure you are actually saving lives. As people living in a modern society, let us not think ourselves so wise as to be foolish. Let's take care of what God has given to us...I have many changes to make...but I am excited and inspired!
Thanks Organica Jane!Valerie from Farmington, New York
Home Green Home Workshop was an eye-opening lesson. A lot of good information that I will be implementing in my home. I have purchased Borax and my vinegar. I have already told a few members of my family and given them a solution of Thieves to use in their home. Thank you so much for all of the information.
March 10, 2009I used the oils faithfully on vacation. They helped on the plane and seemed to keep any germs away during the week. In fact, I am using the Thieves spray today as I feel a sore throat coming on.Bonnie from Canandaigua, NY

Amy Jane, I met you last Saturday at Rio Tomatlan and bought the Thieves Household Cleaner. I have to admit that I bought it to be nice and was very skeptical. Well, we love it and would like to purchase the concentrate! Merci et a bientot,Paul from Canandaigua
January 15, 2009
Thank you so much! I can't believe what a difference it made. I threw 2 bowls and some mugs last night and usually when I wedge the clay (like kneading bread) my hands and wrists ache. No aches and great control! I told everyone at class about you and took in some of your cards, and I told everyone that the website was a great resource and hopefully they will check it out.

Amy has boundless passion for teaching people about therapeutic-grade essential oils. She has truly found her calling in teaching people how to make lifestyle changes, and it shows in the workshops and classes she offers. For anyone interested in living a healthier life (and willing to make the changes necessary for that life), I strongly recommend contacting Amy. You'll be glad you did!

Amy - Thank you so much for continuing to educate me every day. I am fast becoming a firm believer in the power of (Essential) oils. Bob and I have both had colds (congestion, sore throat, cough) for the past week and I have been managing the symptoms with NinXgia Red, RC, Thieves and your wonderful Respiratory blend that you made for me. My favorite is Thieves, honey and hot water, which we sip before bed. Mia is also becoming quite the oil queen. She requested the honey and hot water with Lemon oil, her favorite, and it is quite tasty too.

Hi Amy, I just wanted to send you a quick email as a follow up to the use of the lotion. In the past couple weeks I have noticed a slight softening of my leg, meaning the fluid is moving more (a good thing!). Along with the use of the lotion, I have cut out all artificial sweetners and limited myself to 2 cups of coffee a week. Thank you!

I've had excellent results with my oil, I would say my symptoms are 90% relieved. I love the smell of it! I go to sleep smelling my hands after I've applied it. I named it "Good Evening" and that's a great name; it has meant lots of good evenings for me without the "rushy" feelings I used to have. I've almost convinced my friend to use a less toxic cleaning solution on the floor of the kennel. I now use a cup of white distilled vinegar, a cup of hydrogen peroxide, 5 drops Lemon essential oil, 5 drops Lavender essential oil, in 4 gallons of water.

I have a lot of muscle pain and Amy put together a muscle blend for me. The muscle blend did help relax my muscles but not at the level I had hoped for. Without me even asking she put together a new formula and gave it to me free of charge. The new formula worked better with my muscles and it meant a lot that she was truly concerned and followed up with me.
I also attended a "Say no to Botox" class which Amy taught. It was extremely informative, and we had the pleasure of creating our own unique essential oils lotion. I have since asked Amy to make me a new batch of the lotion. It smells amazing and has helped improve the condition of my skin. I know that whatever I purchase from her will be made from the highest quality ingredients and will be chemical-free. It is a great feeling to know that you are using products on your body that came from nature and not a laboratory.

Amy - I have replaced my Windex with your lemon oil recipe and I love it. I am using it all over the house, countertops, sinks, bathroom - yeah!!. Mia loves to help me clean and now I can feel good about her helping me and not worry that she is breathing in harsh chemicals. She practically cleaned the whole bathroom for me the other day. Thanks and please keep sending your wealth of information. I love it. Talk to you soon.

Amy, Before I was using Young Living Essential oils, I was taking two Celebrex 200mg. tablets a day for my arthritis. That was three or four years ago. I used Peppermint essential oil, neat, on the joints in my hands, hip and ankle two times a day for about six months. Thieves essential oil blend on my feet helped the process also. Now, I use the Peppermint essential oil when i feel a flare up coming, but now every day. I no longer take Celebrex or any other pain pills. I am forever grateful for that class I took at the high school many years ago. Panaway essential oil blend seems to work better on muscle pain, for me, each persons body reacts differently.

Amy: I just wanted to to write you to say thank you for your class ! I also appreciate very much the infomation that you have sent on about the salve/balm ingredients, hair "tonic" and etc. I really loved your class and I plan to see you at the May 22nd class at the Retreat House for you next one. The blend that I made in class: My husband and kids love the smell. My husband and daughter say that it smells like jellybeans to them. My son says that it reminds him of bubble gum. I have been using this salve on my husband and he says that it has been helping! My daughter on Sunday accidently kicked her foot into a solid wood rocking chair while at a friend's house. She told me that she was just swinging her foot back and forth and hit it. It looks like she has bruised the end of her 4th toe pretty badly and she was in pain. She asked me to put the salve on her toe (which I have done every day since and she covers her foot with a sock) and she is able to sleep. She says that the pain goes away when I put the salve on it. The salve gets alot of use in my house ! Thanks again for having this informative class and I will tell you that the salve smell has grown on me. I am quite pleased! Have a great day!

I just wanted to pass along some experiences I’ve had recently with Young Living’s essential oils. Feel free to pass them on.
Firstly, we have been doing some work to our house; we had the ceiling in 1 room painted, and then, we had our entire bedroom painted. The room that just had the ceiling painted smelled like paint for days; we couldn’t even go in the room and kept the door closed. It’s been probably a week and a half, and I can still faintly smell it. It was making us sick and I thought I had heard to mix essential oils with paint to cut the toxic odor. I found a recipe on-line and before the handyman started painting our room, I had him add 1/3 of a bottle of Orange essential oil to the paint. He painted the ceiling and by the next morning, there was no paint smell! I had him add it to the rest of the paint and we were back in our room in no time!
Secondly, I have this sweet little enamel-ware pan that I used to bake some fish in the other night. I sprayed some Pure Spray on it to keep the fish from sticking, but when I tried to clean it, I had a really hard time getting the pan fully clean and an SOS pad just scratched it up. So, I decided I would try soaking it in a little Thieves Household Cleaner. After maybe 15-30 minutes in a sink with warm water and ~1/4 c. of Thieves Household Cleaner, the pan cleaned up easily and all of the stuck-on grease came off. It saved my pan and I was really excited to see the oils/Young Living products in action! I love it!

You did a great job! It is a breath of fresh air to here someone present the way you did it and I mean that. Not everyone including myself would of thought of that.

Just wanted to say again....YOU are AWESOME! So inspiring. I am referring to you as "The expert on Chemicals in our Environment." I feel so empowered to be able to say to people, "No more _____" The kids are even going to tell the grandparents no more artificially colored beverages. I swear that it always sends Thomas into a tail spin & you confirmed it for me. Thank you for all the time, energy & effort you put forth in making that presentation so compelling and fun for everyone. Everyone commented on how awesome of a meeting it was! It was your presentation that did it! You are truly a treasure, Amy. How blessed we are to have someone with such passion & caring in our lives! Love you,

Hi Amy, Happy New Year! I'm slowly making changes. I use essential oil cleansers almost exclusively now at home. I’m also diffusing oils regularly at home and love how fresh and clean my house smells when I walk in! Fondly,

I have really enjoyed using essential oils for so many things this past year as well as learning about their individual uses. That is knowledge I am proud to have. I’ve used the oils for everything from cleaning, to skin care, to my dog’s skin problems, to cold relief for my husband, mother, and grandfather (as well as passing along NingXia Red and Thieves hard lozenges), for use in bath salts, body scrubs, and deodorants that I made myself (with your recipes), for weight loss & detox (Grapefruit essential oil in water w/a little agave), and to help with sleep and with my general well-being. It’s so much fun; thanks for helping to make essential oils so approachable as well as educational! Essential oils are a part of my every day life and I am glad I think to use them before anything else, especially synthetics and chemicals.

October 18, 2007Hey Aim, I've been breaking out a lot lately. Anyway, I've been using the Young Living serum for acne (blend a few drops of the serum with the Young Living ART lotion) and it has been working great! Thought I'd pass that info along in case you know anyone who is looking for a good skin product for acne.

I treated myself to a facial scrub & mask this morning. it was great!! I have to say my skin has a very nice glow! try it!
1 Tbs amazing grains
2 Tbs plain yogurt
2 drops sandalwood essential oil2 drops rose essential oil
make a smooth paste, apply to face and gently rub over face, neck & shoulders (avoid eyes, of course). I was planning to leave on for only 10 min, but I was reading the lavender route guide and it ended up being 20 min!!! splash water on face, neck & shoulders to rinse off. apply YL toner & day moisturizer. very nice!!

The Peppermint essential oil sure worked well. That is the fastest I have every gotten over a sinus headache. On the way home, pressure started to build again so I used it once more. I seemed to be alright after that. Thank you for the suggestion and going home to get it.
