Thieves essential oil blend has saved me from the horrible influenza and cold virus going around!
My 4-year-old nephew was diagnosed with both viral and bacterial infections. He coughed so hard that he could not breathe. It was so scary. They put him on breathing treatments and antibiotics. He also had the flu and a high temperature. I was one of his main caregivers, so I went to his house to watch him for a week.
Then when I came home, my husband and dad had contracted the same thing. My mom had just finished up chemotherapy and could not be exposed to anything. So I again was the primary caregiver.
That is over two weeks of being coughed and sneezed on -- direct contact with the illnesses. I too have a low immune system from fibromyalgia (FMS), among other things. How did I avoid getting sick?
1. Thieves essential oil blend (2 drops twice a day under the tongue)
2. Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier
4. Emergen-C three times a day
5. MUCH prayer!
I did have one day of symptoms... one day. So I doubled up on my Thieves and got lots of rest. NOTHING set in. The next morning I was fine but cautious. I didn't want to be a carrier to anyone.
So, bottom line... I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!! It does work! I am living proof! But you have to use it right for the best results. Now my entire family takes Thieves blend for healthy, germ-free living!

|Supporting Scientific Studies|
|1.||"Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary (most components of Thieves blend)] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."||Link|
|2.||"In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."||Link|
|3.||"Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."||Link|
|4.||"Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."||Link|
|5.||"The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."||Link|
|6.||"These results suggest that the volatile oil of ginger influences both cell-mediated immune response and nonspecific proliferation of T lymphocyte, and may exert beneficial effects in a number of clinical conditions, such as chronic inflammation and autoimmune diseases."||Link|
|7.||"Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."||Link|
|8.||Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: "Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."||Link|
|9.||"DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."||Link|
