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 had sinus problems for 25 years. Recently (in the past 7 years) it would include the point of developing sinusitis and occassionally bronchitis also. Once this would happen that would mean at least 10 days of antibiotics (because as an RN, I always take care of myself last and let things get further than they should), and at least a decongestant perhaps even nasal sprays and a "puffer" for bronchodilation. The last bout of sinusitis and bronchitis has been the month that I started on the oils (last November). At that time it only took two-three days to get rid of my symptoms and I used Peppermint, RC, Lavender and Thieves also.

Better yet, I have continued to take one drop of Peppermint (by licking it off the back of my hand) in the morning and at night, during the worst seasonal times for me, and I have not had a day of congestion yet that would stop me from doing anything. During times that are not bad, I do not need to take it.
