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 am a retired public school teacher, and for the last 3.5 years of my career I was serving as a librarian at a middle school.

The buildings where I was working were not a healthy environment (literally), and I had been getting sicker and sicker each year until I found myself on allergy shots, 2 nasal sprays, 2 inhalers, and 2 oral medications.

Despite all of the meds, I would still come down with sinusitis, which would lead to the use of Levaquin (I am allergic to other antibiotics because of years of use for sinusitis which would always lead to a bacterial infection) and a cortisone shot or pack.

I was very ill with a 101.1 degree temperature by noon of each day. The fever would lower in the evening after leaving the library... but not below 99.1 degrees.

My doctor had me recording my temperature during the day, which is why I know exactly what happened on that fateful day when the school counselor asked if she could put a diffuser in my library office with 8 drops of Thieves essential oil blend in it.

She also handed me a blue bottle of olive oil mixed with some Thieves essential oil blend and asked, "Which ear hurts?" I applied this along my eustachian tube down my neck to help the stopped-up ear to start draining.

In the library with me on this day was a teacher with her students who were conducting research. This teacher always got a nosebleed whenever she would bring her class to the library, so it was just an ordinary day for us.

But things changed this day.

Two hours later I came out of my office and said, "I am feeling better." The other teacher said, "My nose stopped bleeding." I grabbed my Braun thermometer. My fever had dropped to 99.3 degrees.

On Wednesday we discovered that there was black mold all over my office. I called the director of the library media services, and the district mold experts came to investigate. A dehumidifier was placed in the library, and a half a trash can of water was pulled from the air every day!

Mold is no laughing matter. I have since retired and therefore have removed myself from that toxic environment, but it has taken a long time to recover my health. I have been getting Raindrop Technique treatments once a week for over 6 months to help bring my health back into balance.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sinusitis — "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
2.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
3.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
4.Associated topics: sinusitis — "The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
5.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
6.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
7.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
8.Associated topics: detox-/-cleanse — "In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis."Link
