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 son got a fever of 101. I mixed 2-3 drops each of Peppermint and Wintergreen and diluted 50/50 with massage oil (could even use a bit more dilution). I applied this to his forehead, back of neck and temples. The fever reduced to 99 degrees before he went to bed, and in the morning it was gone and did not return. I believe the oils facilitated this. Much better than Motrin or Tylenol, which we used to use.

Be careful to keep it away from the eyes. I had to warn him that if he touched it not to rub his eyes.
