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 was recently out of the country, and I could tell that I was starting to come down with a cold. Ugh. That is the last thing I wanted to deal with in the middle of my trip.

I turned to Thieves and Inner Defense to see if they could stop this cold before it took hold of my whole body. I took one Inner Defense capsule 3 or 4 times a day for about 3 days.

Several times a day, I also let a drop of Thieves fall onto my tongue and then held my tongue to the roof of my mouth until the essential oil started to dissipate. The feeling of the Thieves oil in my mouth was very intense, but I could tell that it was helping me.

I also used Thieves hard throat lozenges to soothe my mouth, nasal passages, and throat.

The cold never developed beyond the initial stages of an itchy nose/throat and that tired feeling behind my eyes. After about 3 days, I no longer had any symptoms. In the past I would have gotten a full-blown cold that would most likely have developed into a sinus infection.
