    I used to do so much ibuprofen also girl ..daily. Well now I have an ulcer so this last month I cannot take anything for headaches. But I just this month have used the peppermint also just mixed a few drops into coconut oil and used it all over my temples and forehead and my migraines subsided and I’ve had them for years. I just buy the peppermint at Walmart and I really am in disbelief how well it worked on my migraines.

    You’re awesome! Thank you for the info! I get my EOs from Stillpoint Aromatics and Original Swiss Aromatics. Beautiful and affordable oils! I wanted to try Young Living, I thought maybe they were better because they were more expensive…Thank you for savin my butt! Lmao!!

    OMG! My chiropractor’s (and personal friend), wife tried to get me into Young Living! She uses the oils in her daily water intake and food she prepares! Which was very good btw, especially her peppermint cookies!
    I was using the orange oil in my water everyday for a year, until I found out citrus’s weren’t good for me! She signed me up as a “member” to get the “discounts.” Lol!! I was told I had to buy $50 worth of products a month… not a year!! When I tried buying Only $50, it was impossible as the products are priced so that you’re always under the $50 & have to buy an additional $25 product to get the discount!! That’s not even including the shipping cost!! Which I always thought should have been FREE because I was spending soo much!!
    After 3 months I was out! I never intended on selling it to family and friends! I hate that sneaky crap!! Still thinking that YL was the best, I replenished by buying YL on eBay.
    Now finding this crap out, I’m pissed at myself for not digging deeper and just trusting her because she’s a massage therapist and runs her husbands chiropractic office!
    But, when you’re in pain and feel like shit 24-7, you’re open to whatever might possibly make you feel better!!

    I don’t understand how someone could pick themselves up after basically murdering their daughter…. and go on to scam millions of people??!! “Dr” Young sounds like a sociopath!!

    I’m staring at my YL oils right now and I’m sick to my stomach.

    all companies are Multi-Level (MLM’s) you are too funny. CEO, President, Vice President, CFO, COO, middle management and workers –

    I like Eden’s Garden

  6. exogenesis on April 19, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    Oh god, ibuprofen causes liver damage and can wear holes in your stomach. Daily use is not recommended, my doctor told me even once a week is bad. If you have to take it, only do so as rarely as possible. I only take it once every few months, and only if I’m so miserable I absolutely have to.

  7. PlanetSleaze on April 19, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    This could sound weird, but you have a beautiful mouth.

  8. Sierra's Lisp on April 19, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    Let’s get the real questioned answered here: WHAT EYESHADOW ARE YOU USING?!

  9. Bobbi J on April 19, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    This is some Shane Dawson level investigative research. Well done! You should look into other MLMs and make this a thing if you haven’t. I personally want the plexus pink drink debunked officially but that’s just me lol. Thanks for sharing your findings.
    P.s. I also lost 2 children, one well into the second trimester. I’m so sorry for your horrific loss. It is something no mother should experience.

  10. Bluebell on April 19, 2019 at 6:09 pm

    I have autism and use essential oils all the time, and guess what? I still have autism lol

    NOW Foods also are affordable.

  12. Bruce Cook on April 19, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    GMS condemns essential oils as a whole claiming they are entirely "placebo effect", and are a waste of money. im a subscriber and honestly a big fan of his, but his non stop redicule of essential oils peaked my interest and i decided to test them out for myself, and ended up finding not only did the aroma from diffusing them keep me in a good calm mood all day while home, which helps both my adhd and bipolar symptoms, i had stopped having seizure like symptoms which began almost 3 months ago and happened every single night as soon as i’de lay down to go to sleep. as long as ive had a strong dose of lavender diffusing next to my bed where i can smell it strong, i dont have these problems at all. GMS was wrong to say they are 100% placebo effect. he does educate a bit about YL but if people who have never used oils before go to his channel as you reccomend, they are going to find many videos on EO’s and will be brainwashed into believing never to dare use them, and might spread propoganda against EO’s themselves based on what GMS says in all his "anti EO’s" videos.

  13. Kimberly Elizabeth on April 19, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    What are y’all’s fave smelling eo combos? I love a fresh clean smell. Any tips?

  14. Mary Beth Wylie on April 19, 2019 at 6:11 pm

    I wouldn’t buy anything from a pack of bitches trying to make me feels stupid. What are they trying to prove? How rude?!

  15. MMN on April 19, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Yea well he passed away cause he was probably consuming animal products.

  16. Bryanna on April 19, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    I hate Young Living with every fiber of my being, and they can thank the people they have bamboozled into selling it. Every single distributor I’ve been unfortunate enough to encounter has been a world class jerk and psychopath.

  17. Hannah Kayee on April 19, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Im not making money for anyone else. Fucccckkkk that.

    Yes you did say Spokane right. I live in Spokane. Lol.

  20. Katie Burak on April 19, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    I use Plant Therapy for my essential oils

  21. Catherine Savino on April 19, 2019 at 6:14 pm

    Sooo what does your sister-in-law think of this video?

  22. Teresa Benavides on April 19, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    Thank you for this video! Excellently done

  23. Da Guppz on April 19, 2019 at 6:19 pm

    if essential oils work then so does chewing up marigold and shoving it in a cut does. its all placebo

  24. bunnehontherocks on April 19, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    Every single thing is a chemical. There is no such thing as chemical free.

  25. Autumn Wheeler on April 19, 2019 at 6:21 pm

    Stop friken hating on essentail oils

  26. CheerupButtercup on April 19, 2019 at 6:22 pm

    If a company isn’t spending money on marketing, wouldn’t that make their product….cheaper????
    Cost = Cost of production + cost of labor + cost of marketing???

  27. Ashley Gomez on April 19, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    So what other websites I can purchase oils for a good price range?

  28. Penny Ziv on April 19, 2019 at 6:29 pm here is another video from a youtuber who has some info on young living as well. I’ve never personally bought essential oils. Nor bought into pyramid schemes. I do think people need more education on this in general. But, this company, if it can be called that, was founded by a scam artist. It goes so much deeper than just the water birth…

  29. Breflections on April 19, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Gary Young was screwed up in the head. My word.

  30. Sofia Beatriz on April 19, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    I have NEVER heard of this shitty
    Company before but I’m glad you exposed them. I’m definitely going to spread the word. Canceled 100%

  31. Katia En Miami on April 19, 2019 at 6:30 pm

    Great information! Lovely accent. Keep it up girl!

  32. Craig G on April 19, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    What I find interesting is this girl has serious disease issues in the blossom of life and making a negative video about the greatest source of true health and longevity. Admit you’re not strong enough to live the truths of longevity.

  33. salemthecat on April 19, 2019 at 6:37 pm

    Essential oil people scare the shit out of me, tbh. Ain’t nothing wrong with being natural, but like there has to be a line right? 500 years ago we didn’t have modern medicine, buuut also we also died from the flu and cholera, our hygiene was so poor, the infant mortality rate was insane and living into your elderly stage was rare. We need modern medicine for a reason. We also need to remember where we came from as well, but really mainly in our diets. We don’t need processed foods and insanely excessive sugar and all that, what comes from the earth is good enough for us just like our ancestors. (And no I don’t mean veganism but vegans don’t come for me). Everything needs to be balanced. We need a little from the past, a little from the future, and most importantly a huge dose of hindsight and logic.

    Teach me how to jump cut

  35. boho beatnik on April 19, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    I’m sharing the fuck out of this because I’m tired of having this argument with people all the time! MLM = EVIL AF. YL = ripoff. Starwest, plant therapy, and edens are all wonderful companies. THANK YOU FOR THIS ❤️

  36. Flor Lomeli on April 19, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    I was thinking of purchasing essential oils from this company a while back but I did research on the ingredients and they didn’t look legit. I hate MLM companies

  37. Nancy Nancy on April 19, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Love the purple hair ! Very informative video thank you! He died a multi multi millionaire . Essential oils are great but buyer beware even famous ones.

  38. Carla Perez on April 19, 2019 at 6:46 pm

    YL is apparently getting sued for being a "cult like" pyramid scheme. Finally!

  39. VegasLounge on April 19, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    I live in a smallish city with a large military base (both literally and figuratively- there’s a Chinook flying over my house as I type). I can’t tell you how big MLMs– ESPECIALLY EOs– are here, and it’s always the same demographic selling them: young military wives with small kids. I understand the appeal that these companies have for them…young military families don’t make a lot of money and by the nature of their partners low rank, these women rarely have time to settle and get established in one town, much less establish a career in them. And that is the appeal *to* the MLMs, Hell, it’s a target demographic. It’s downright predatory and truly disgusting.

  40. Hannah Kayee on April 19, 2019 at 6:50 pm

    Feel the same way about Younique garbage makeup for more than high end makeup. No thanks.

  41. FO Chicken on April 19, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    YLO are like a cult
    I had a family member try to rope me into it and I was like HEEEEELL NO.
    I’ll pass.

    "A stroke is a “brain attack”. It can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. "

    The Universe serves Karma…always. Most people just aren’t able to see it.

  43. Eve M on April 19, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    I just looked at the prices and I can get 50ml of great quality, well sourced oil as well as over 100ml of lower quality oil for the same price as YL charges for 15ml oil. Holy shit, that’s hella expensive!
