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'm stunned right now. For about the past year and a half, I've had chronic sinus infections, seven of them to be exact. I'm convinced it became fungal because, when the antibiotics would clear the infection, I could still feel a sludgy kind of junk in my sinuses.

I also made the correlation of my sinus infections with the exact timing of a burst pipe in our house which took months for insurance to clean it up. I'm 100% certain there is mold and fungus in my crawl space, so as a result it was affecting me. I have a history of allergies to molds and dust and have seasonal allergies.

I just ended my last round of antibiotics two days ago. Last night I could feel the pressure in my sinuses growing, and I was devastated. I just received my essential oils and was layering the oils topically and inhaling them, and then I read here at of someone ingesting 10 drops of the Thieves oil blend and swabbing his nose with the Purification oil blend. That was it!

Within an hour I had purchased capsules, made my Thieves capsule, ingested it, swabbed my nose... and within ONE HOUR I was noticeably better. It was probably sooner, but I didn't acknowledge it because I didn't want to be disappointed.

I took another one today when I got up, another at lunch, and then one tonight after dinner. I've NEVER EVER felt this good in years! My ears are actually popping, and I can hear better and have my energy back. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE MY LIFE BACK!!!!

If I have to take Thieves the rest of my life, so be it. Not a big deal at all. I'm a believer, and now I'm going to become a distributor! I'm so thankful that my Young Living distributor happened to find me!

1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale — "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: hearing — "Essential oils or their components placed in the ear canal can provide effective treatment of acute otitis media."Link
3.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,sinusitis,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
4.Associated topics: hearing — "[We] evaluate[d] the efficacy of the Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] in improving cochlear flow and symptoms... for patients with Meniere’s disease (MD), tinnitus, and cochlear hypoperfusion.... Symptoms of Meniere’s disease [spontaneous vertigo, positional vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, pressure in the ear, unsteady gait], flow at cochlear level, and tinnitus improved in Pycnogenol subjects...."Link
5.Associated topics: hearing — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
6.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
7.Associated topics: antibiotic,fungus — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
