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.

In the span of two weeks I've had exposure on many fronts to all kinds of "bugs" this winter - grandchildren with 103 degree temps, air travel with many coughing, family gathering with coughing and snotty-nosed children.

In the middle of one night while still away from home, after all this exposure, I awoke feeling miserable - throat sore, ears tickling, congested, chilled. I thought for sure I was doomed to the cough and the runny nose and went back to bed. Then I remembered: Oils! I drug myself back out of bed to find the ones I had with me that were most anti-viral. I found and applied the following to my feet: Oregano, Basil, Marjoram and Clove.

Within a few minutes of lying back down I began to experience a sense of clearing, of ease. By morning I felt fine.

I am still a visitor in a home with little children and have continued to battle & win against periodic "bug" attacks. In addition to the above oils I have used Inner Defense, salt irrigation of the nostrils, and ImmunPower. Occasionally, Peppermint in water, Purification at opening of ears & on tongue, and regularly Thieves Lozenges to keep the throat bugs tamed down.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: winter bugs, cold, cough, congestion, sore throat.
