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 had an amazing experience using Thyme oil. My 8-year-old daughter got sick about three weeks ago with a cold and fever. That passed but left behind a yucky snotty nose.

She was completely stuffed up and had copious mucus that she was having to blow constantly.

This lingered for over two weeks, and I noticed she started to not feel well in general, becoming lethargic and generally grumpy... all the while staying congested.

I am very new to oils and don't have a lot to choose from. I don't even have the Essential Oils Desk Reference book yet. But I knew something had to be done or else it was time to take her to a doctor for a suspected infection.

I looked at the oils I did have and then read the brief bio on each one out of my product brochure. Among the few oils in my possession I had a bottle of Thyme, which I believe my mom left with me some time back. I've never used it until now.

I decided to apply Thyme to her spine in the fashion of Raindrop Technique. I started with the Valor oil blend and followed it with the Thyme. It was a bit of a hot oil for her, so I followed up with some olive oil from my cupboard (improvising here). Then I applied two drops of the RC oil blend to her chest area.

Literally in less than two hours I realized that there was no green snot showing out of her nose! I asked her if she had been blowing her nose and with a bit of confusion, she replied, "No." By that afternoon she was breathing freely through her nasal passages.

I did the treatment on her back and chest once more before she went to bed that night. It has been two days now, and she is completely symptom free, not to mention feeling great. Incredible! I would have never thought it possible.

If I ever doubted before, I doubt no longer! Thanks Mom!

1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,lungs-/-pulmonary — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,lungs-/-pulmonary,sinus-infection — "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
3.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
4.Associated topics: congestion-/-mucus-/-phlegm,sinus-infection — "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
