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.


Occasionally I get an allergy-related migraine headache. I was having one of these migraines where I was extremely sensitive to light and noise and had enormous pounding on one side of my head around the eye, temple, and neck.

I had tried several essential oils which took the edge off, but nothing seemed to work. Then a friend suggested that I try the Thieves oil. I was ready to try anything by that point, so I applied it to my temples, back of the neck, wrist accupressure points, palms, and inhaled. Immediately after application and inhalation the headache and ALL OF ITS SYMPTOMS were GONE!!! I was astonished!!!

Here, I had been confined to my dark bedroom with little movement, but after applying the Thieves I went running out to the living room where it was fully lit and exclaimed to my husband "It worked!!"
