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.


My husband got very sick with a high fever in August 2009. The fever started very suddenly and for seven days his temperature stayed between 101 - 105 degrees Farenheit. I took him to emergency twice and to his doctor's office once. All tests came back negative - they even checked him for H1N1. It was a mystery to the medical professionals as to why he had the fever.

The morning of the day the fever started (prior to the fever starting) he had had some routine blood work done. His doctor got the results and called saying that his hemmoglobin was low, which typically indicates that someone is losing blood from somewhere.

Once his fever finally broke, a couple of days later he went back for more blood tests and had to do a fecal smear. The next day we went on holidays for 8 days. We came back from holidays to three messages from the Doctors office stating his Doctor needed to see him as soon as possible. Thinking the worst we called the next day and were able to get in that day.

His Doctor came in and was shaking his head... He stated that he'd "never seen anything like this"... My husbands hemoglobin went from low to within acceptable range between the time of the first blood test and the second blood test (about 10 days in between). He asked if he'd been taking any supplements to which we replied no. We were just so glad he was okay, we completely forgot the regimin that I'd put him on when he had the fever...

That regimin is as follows: Raindrop technique twice daily and 6 or more ounces of NingXia Red per day. NOTE: When I did the Raindrop technique, I just dropped all the oils (Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Peppermint, Aroma Siez and Valor) individually on his spine and feather stroked each of them up his spine. I also added any oil I could think of that had properties that would decrease infection/fever (Thieves, Frankincense, ImmuPower, etc.). I did minimal massage as he was unable to tolerate a full Raindrop treatment due to being so ill.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: spine — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link
2.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
3.Associated topics: immune-system — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
4.Associated topics: blood — "Cinnamaldehyde [in cinnamon] has antihyperglycemic and antihyperlipidemic [cholesterol-lowering] actions in db/db mice and could be useful in the treatment of type-2 diabetes."Link
5.Associated topics: blood — "D-limonene is a major constituent in citrus essential oil.... Recently, d-limonene has been reported to alleviate fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet. Our data suggest that the intake of d-limonene may benefit patients with dyslipidemia and hyperglycemia and is a potential dietary supplement for preventing and ameliorating metabolic disorders."Link
6.Associated topics: immune-system — "Immunomodulatory activity of frankincense oil: Biologically, the oil exhibited a strong immunostimulant activity (90% lymphocyte transformation) when assessed by a lymphocyte proliferation assay."Link
7.Associated topics: immune-system — "Anti-inflammatory, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antimicrobial, antioxidant, carminative [flatulence] and immunomodulatory properties of caraway suggest that it might exert beneficial effects on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).... CHE and CEO [caraway essential oil] at all doses tested were effective in reducing colon tissue lesions and colitis indices and the efficacy was nearly the same when different doses of plant fractions were administered p.o. or i.p..... These data suggest that caraway fractions are both effective and possess anti-colitic activity irrespective of the dose and route of administration."Link
8.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
