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 woke up one morning with the beginnings of a raging head cold. I was at an all day workshop that day, so was only able to apply the below essential oil regimen 4 times. I sneezed and blew my nose literally dozens of times all throughout that day, and was pretty convinced that I hadn't done enough to "catch it in time". However, I woke up the next morning with none of the symptoms from the day before - just quite tired feeling. Much better to experience just a day of sneezing than a whole week of a head cold! (I continued with the below regimen for a few more days until I was sure I was in the clear).

4 times per day:
In a capsule: 4-5 drops of Clove or Tea Tree; on the bottoms of my feet: 2 drops per foot of either Thyme or Oregano; rubbed on my chest: 2 drops of Rosemary or Basil.

I would alternate between the oils, ingesting the Clove one time, the Tea Tree the next, etc. so as to get the benefit of all 6 of these highly antimicrobial oils.
