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 recently was sick with H1N1. I'm a 35 year old mother who is healthy and gets sick next to never. I was shocked at the intensity of the symptoms, with a new upper respiratory region affected daily, 3 day fever (ranging from 99 to 102), the fatigue and the length of time to recover (9 days).

A visit to the doctor left me with a prescription for an inhaler and 2 rounds of antibiotics that I was to fill if symptoms got worse. Given my success with managing asthma with essential oil use I choose to see if I could handle the symptoms before taking the prescriptions. It was successful. This is what I did to help elevate H1N1 symptoms:

Sore throat: 1-2 drops of Thieves in 8-10oz glass of water. Soothed/coated throat.

Sinus pressure, plugged nose: 1 drop of RC on Q-tip swab in both nasal passages. Also used Neti pot with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1 dropper of neti-wash: Zinc and Herbs for Sinus Congestion and Immune Support Drops

Headache: Deep Relief roll on applied to base of skull and either side of neck

Wheezing/ expectorant: 1 drop of RC to chest/ then 1 drop of Peppermint or frankenscense. 2 tsp. of Bronchial Soothe Ivy Leaf Syrup

I was thankful to not have the virus turn into a bacterial infection...thank you oils!!
