Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I've been using essential oils since March 2014. The deciding factor for me was my 2 1/2-month-old daughter battling a 102-degree fever over the course of a couple days. It only showed up in the late afternoon/evenings. The first night I used Children's Motrin, and the fever came down within about an hour and a half.

The next night, at my mother's house, the fever returned, and she got her essential oils out. We used diluted Thieves and Lavender on the bottoms of my baby's feet and reapplied in 15 minutes, noticing she was already cooler, not fussy, and soon afterward asleep. I signed up the next day to get my Premium Starter Kit!

Last weekend, after church -- as sometimes happens -- one or more children will "bring something home" from their group in Children's Ministry. By evening, my two-year-old had a very high fever, was drenched, and was sound asleep but fitful.

I again applied diluted Thieves on one foot, diluted Lavender on the other foot, and a diluted drop of Peppermint into her navel. I repeated this every 15 minutes for the next hour; by the end of the hour her fever was down, and she was sleeping calmly.

The next day you never would have known she had had anything wrong. I also that evening applied Thieves to the bottoms of ALL of our feet to be sure no one else caught it. Fortunately no one else came down with any symptoms at all. :-)
