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.

My 6 month old got a really bad ear infection. We took him to the doctor and he went through 3 rounds of antibiotics (what was I thinking!?) and she finally suggested an antibiotic injection. I drew the line there and she said then we would have to go to a ENT and get tubes put in his ears.

The ENT could not see us for 2 weeks (Providence?) and we called a Naturopath we had recently meet and asked her what we could do. By now this infection had been going on for a couple of months and was only getting worse. She suggested we take him off dairy, rub Ledum below his ear and down his neck, rub Thieves on his feet, and apply colloidal silver in his ear.

When we went to the ENT two weeks later he looked in his ears and said there was no sign of infection. He asked what we had done and of course, in his mind, none of it made any difference. I knew that the oils were what killed this infection. I signed up as a distributor very soon after that!
