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.

My 23-month-old woke up with a runny nose and was sneezing quite frequently throughout the morning. She looked awful with red, puffy, watering eyes. It was so sad!

We were a little worried about it because her grandmother and uncle both had had an upper respiratory illness that lasted for a couple weeks, and we did not want her to go through that too.

My sister had recently told us about her success using "Thieves tea", so we mixed up some": We added a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend, Lemon juice (or Lemon essential oil), and honey to a cup of hot water, and then we would drink it like a tea.

My daughter only drank maybe a third of a cup -- little sips spread throughout the day -- but we could definitely see results, especially her sneezing becoming less frequent and her eyes clearing up.

We also had Myrtle essential oil out and had my daughter smell it about seven times throughout the day. The Myrtle definitely improved her nasal function, and by the end of the day she was only slightly sniffly.

Before bed I rubbed Thieves blend on her temples and the back of her neck. The next morning she was functioning at about 98%, and today she is completely back to normal.

My husband also drank a couple cups of the tea because he had a slight headache, a little throat tension, and a vague suspicion that he might be coming down with something. Needless to say, nothing ever came of it.

I highly recommend Thieves blend, "Thieves tea", and Myrtle essential oil to help support normal respiratory and nasal function.
