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 had chronic ear infections most of my adult life. I have used so many antibiotics over the years. Since starting on Young Living essential oils, I went four months without an infection.
When I got a cold -- and Thieves essential oil blend fought it off somehow -- I ended up with an ear infection. I started applying Thieves, Purification, and Lavender around my ears and down my neck. I also used one drop of Lavender on a cotton ball in my ear (never apply essential oils directly into the ear) two nights in a row.
Today I have no more discomfort or dizziness. Thank you, Young Living. I don't ever want the old remedies again!
