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 4-year-old son has had two sets of tubes prior to his recent ENT (ear, nose, and throat) visit. Once again he failed the hearing test; the doctor saw a lot of fluid behind his ears. Surgery for tubes was recommended once again. This time I asked the doctor for one month to try natural remedies since the tubes have failed twice already.

For one month I used Melrose essential oil blend behind my son's ears and down his neck to rid the ears of fluid. His nose began to run, so I figured that that is how the fluid had to leave the body. I also used Thieves essential oil blend on his feet nightly, and I removed all dairy from his diet.

We went back a month later to the ENT doctor, and he saw no fluid in either ear. My son passed his hearing test! Surgery was not needed, and my son was released from coming back to the ENT because his ears looked so good!
