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.

For about the past 10 years I have developed pneumonia in January each year, which would take from 1.5 to 3 weeks to clear up with or without medication. After the pneumonia was cleared out of my lungs, however, I would have bronchitis that would take anywhere from 1.5 up to 4 months to clear up. Needless to say, this was a very tiresome thing to deal with.

This year, 2009, a friend of mine introduced me to the Young Living Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils. Now, I am a skeptic but consider myself to be an honest skeptic. So, you can imagine my thinking when Steve first introduced me to the oils. Yep, I was thinking, "Oil Shmoil. How can an oil be any more effective than a good organic diet?"

When I developed the pneumonia this January I called Steve and asked him what he had that he thought could help, thinking the whole time that I was simply going to debunk something with my own personal experience.

Well, Steve came over that evening, Saturday, 01/10/2009, with his essential oils reference book. He looked in the book and instructed me to heat some water on the stove and put it into a ceramic mug, which I willingly did. Then he put several drops of several different oils into the cup of hot water and had me drink it.

I'm telling you that it tasted so bad it would've gagged a dragon! That stuff was exquisitely NASTY! And I was still thinking that it was simply some type of snake oil stuff, even though it was all pure and organic.

The next day I couldn't even get up to go to church. But the shocking surprise came at 7:10 pm, only 21 hours after taking that oil concoction, I woke up lying flat on my back and took a full, clear breath of air!

I sat bolt straight up in bed and breathed as deeply as I could, thinking that I must have been sleeping for days. But when I looked at my phone I realized the true time period that it took to clear up. 21 HOURS!!

The bronchitis hung on but it was completely gone within 10 days as well! It was less time than it took me to ever get over the pneumonia part of this annual sickness.

Folks, the oils work. They help the body do what God intended it to do when He designed and created mankind - be healthy!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,respiratory-system,lungs-/-pulmonary — "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: breathing-/-inhale,respiratory-system,lungs-/-pulmonary,pneumonia,bronchitis — "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
3.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
4.Associated topics: respiratory-system,pneumonia,bronchitis — "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
