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 was at a restaurant with a large group of friends when a friend's daughter developed a horrific earache. I asked her mom if I could suggest some oils to use and she said, "Most definitely! As a matter of fact if you have anything you can put them on her right now!".

And I most certainly did have my briefcase of oils and my essential oils reference book (that I read from cover to cover) handy. I whipped up a blend of what I had on-hand to what the book suggested: Thyme and the Purification oil blend mixed 50/50 with V-6. Sure there was olive oil in the restaurant, but I felt more comfortable using the V-6.

Since Thyme is more potent, I used 2 drops of Thyme, 4 drops of Purification and 6 drops of the V-6. We put the blend around her ear opening (never inside the ear!). And in 15 seconds, she smiled. An hour later, she was feeling bad again so we did the same and got the same smile.

All it took was just 2 applications. The next morning, she told her mommy that the earache was all gone. But just to be on the safe side, we applied it once more. I left some of the blend with her mom that morning.

What's really incredible here is that my friends' daughter usually needs to see a doctor and is on antibiotics for a week for the earache to go away.

Hopefully, she won't need to see a doctor about an earache again!
