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.

One Monday my son, played at the house of a girl who ended up having strep throat. We found this out when her mother called to advise us on Tuesday. The girl's lab results overnight cultures confirmed it.

On Thursday morning around 1:00 am my wife, (she is a nurse), called me at work to tell me that our son was burning up with fever and his ear was bright red and painful. Fortunately I had the essential oils reference book with me. I looked up strep and told her what to do.

My wife applied Peppermint oil neat (undiluted) to the bottom of his feet. She applied Lavender oil neat to both of his ears. She applied Exodus II (a blend of oils cited in Exodus in the Bible) diluted with 100% pure organic olive oil to his carotid arteries on both sides of his neck just below his ear lobes.

She applied Cinnamon Bark oil diluted with the same olive oil on his chest. She applied Clove oil diluted with the same olive oil on his back. Lastly, she sprayed Thieves spray in his mouth. When she checked on him around 4:00 am, his fever was gone and he was able to sleep.

When I arrived home from work around 11:00 am, he was up and playing normally. The only symptom he had was slight ear pain. My wife applied all of the oils again, plus I gave him his daily chewable vitamins from Young Living (KidScents MightyVites). In addition, I gave my son two Super C's, which is 2106% of the RDA for vitamin C, and I had him rinse his mouth with Thieves Fresh Essence Plus mouth wash.

When I got up at 10:00 pm, he had no more ear pain. He was completely recovered from his illness. My wife had talked with her friend whose daughter has strep throat. The girl still had strep and was on antibiotics. On Friday I repeated all of the oils and supplements for him.

Saturday morning I took him to his doctor. My wife was concerned that it might turn into a secondary infection. They did a rapid culture for strep which was negative and an overnight culture. Monday they said the overnight culture was also negative! AMAZING!!! Just absolutely amazing! Our son had recovered within hours and his friend had to suffer all week. Also, she will have to take antibiotics for 14 days regardless.

He has had ear infections for the last four years and his right ear has always been painful and/or filled with fluid. His doctor wanted to place a tube in his ear to drain the fluid. Fortunately, I found Young Living and our up line told me to get him off dairy and wheat.

Since late February 2004 he has not complained of any ear pain. Then I read The Milk Book and we started drinking raw milk. On the Saturday when his doctor examined him, said his ears looked normal with no fluid or redness!

My wife is now a believer in Young Living products. I remember when I first bought home the Lavender oil. When I wanted to apply it to her, she called me a hippie! Now she is calling me at work asking which oils to apply!

Young Living products continue to amaze me everyday. Our son loves the NingXia Red juice and the vitamins. He prefers to drink the juice straight and he even swallows the Super C's without drinking anything!

Our son loves the Young Living products!

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine....
