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 have been a Thieves essential oil blend fan for many years. I used it when I had pneumonia years ago and never had to take anything more. And I am someone who had recurring episodes with pneumonia in the past and once had a collapsed lung from it. So I am very aware of the symptoms at the onset and of the length of time it takes to recover.

Recently I felt respiratory symptoms coming up. I know the feeling and the potential for it to turn into something worse. So I did what I typically do. I put a few drops of Thieves essential oil blend in my mouth a couple times a day and applied RC on my chest. This usually works.

This time I felt like doing something I had never done before. I use my diffuser for so many things, but I had not used it for diffusing Thieves. I placed about 7-8 drops in my diffuser and went to sleep.

The next morning the results were amazing. The symptoms were greatly reduced, and I felt like a new person. The results were so much quicker.

I love that Thieves was working even when I couldn't! I still had symptoms of a cold and light respiratory problems, but the initial feeling when I coughed and had chest pain was gone that first night. I love this product!

P.S. I also used other essential oils to get through the cold. I took about 4 shots of NingXia Red per day and used Peppermint essential oil on my chest, alternating with RC (1-2 drops of each). I noticed better results when I used RC on my feet. I also drank a LOT of Lemon water (about 12 drops in 32 oz) to stay hydrated and to encourage elimination.

I hope this helps someone challenged with respiratory issues.
