Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I have been plagued with sinus problems since childhood, with continual drainage and sinus headaches. For the last 8 years I have had tubes in both ears, and I even had to have sinus surgery 4 years ago. Understandably, I have always made sure to have Dimetapp, Benadryl and Sudafed on hand.

In September 2013 I was introduced to therapeutic-grade essential oils. I started diffusing the Thieves essential oil blend and then the RC essential oil blend.

Then I began putting a drop of RC in my hand and rubbing my hands together, inhaling as often as needed. I also used the Breathe Again Roll-On blend on my cheeks right under my eyes and temples. I began experiencing relief right away.

Now if I feel a sore throat coming on, I spray the back of my throat with Thieves Spray. I also use Peppermint essential oil on my temples and forehead for headaches, which now no longer plague me.

As of today, I have no tubes in my ears and no more sinus issues. I have not taken any over-the-counter meds since starting to use essential oils.

I am so thankful that my friend introduced me to these amazing oils.
