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 made it a practice to apply Thieves oil to the soles of my feet daily and to carry it with me when flying or going into crowds. I spent this past holiday season away from home where my schedule was hectic and I attended many social gatherings packed with people who were red-eyed and coughing but protesting that they were "not contagious" because they had had several relapses and were being treated with antibiotics.

I ran out of Thieves early in my stay and didn't order a replacement and, surprise, I got sick with the same symptoms including a fever etc. I borrowed a bottle of Thieves and began taking 2 drops of Oregano and 6 drops of Thieves in a gel cap 4 times per day. In two days all symptoms were gone and I stopped. Two days later I was sick again. I upped the dose to 3 drops of Oregano and 9 drops of Thieves and continued for 6 days, 4 days past the time when I felt well again. A month later I have had no recurrent symptoms. Several of my friends, however, are in their second month of suffering from this illness. My big mistake was to stop the doses at the first sign of wellness and I should have known better. Perhaps, just as with the mainstream remedies, it is wise to continue dosing a few days beyond the time when one feels well again.
