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 suffered from a terrible bout of mononucleosis years ago, which then led to chronic fatigue syndrome (a.k.a. CFS, myalgic encephalomyelitis, ME, systemic exertion intolerance disease, or SEID). I have tried so many things over the years to help, and there are a small handful that I can say truly, without a doubt, have helped me. Here is one:

Several times a year -- when I overdo it -- one of the first signs that I am about to become very sick again is painful, tender neck glands. This usually leads to a sore throat and extreme fatigue.

I have found that, at the moment I start feeling the tender neck glands, if I apply Thieves essential oil blend to them, they will calm down quickly, and I will not have the relapse. I usually put 1 to 2 drops on each side of my neck and will repeat every 4 to 6 hours until there is no sign of tenderness coming back. (Plus I get a nice taste of Cinnamon in my mouth!)

P.S. Drinking NingXia Red daily has also helped me tremendously to not relapse as often and have a better "base."

Scientific study on Clove oil, a constituent of Thieves essential oil blend:
"...results suggest that Clove oil can modulate the immune response by augmenting humoral immunity and decreasing cell mediated immunity."
