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.

My daughter was 6 months old and had a terrible respiratory infection and as any good mother, who is also an RN, I took her to the pediatrician. As you would expect, he ordered an antibiotic. I gave her the full dose of amoxicillin as prescribed and she still was not improved. I waited a about a week thinking she would be ok and she continued to be sick. I scheduled another appointment with the pediatrician, and as you would expect, he ordered a different antibiotic. In all honesty, she got worse instead of better. The third trip to the pediatrician office resulted in the doctor wanting to prescribe steroids for my now 7 month old baby. As a holistic nurse, I understood the potential negative side effects and decided I could not do that to her.

I left the office crying, with a sick baby and the pediatrician yelling at me about how I needed to pursue the prescribed treatment for her new diagnosis, asthma. I did not believe she had asthma, she just was not responding to the prior antibiotics.

I contacted a nurse in my community that taught aromatherapy as a last ditch hope. Within 5 days of using essential oils, I had a new baby. She could breathe, nurse as usual, and was well.
