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.

I was making gluten-free pancakes and sampling the batter, not remembering the danger of eating raw eggs. I actually usually do not fear our local farmer's eggs, but these were store bought. I should have known better!

Within an hour, I was doubled over in pain with cramping, diarrhea, and a slight fever inching up.

So I started alternating some Young Living Peppermint essential oil on my abdomen and some drops on my tongue. Then every other hour I would ingest 2 to 3 drops of Oregano essential oil in a spoonful of olive oil. A warm compress of Lavender essential oil on the abdomen helped too.

I started feeling sick at 11 AM and was already feeling better by 7 PM! Miraculous!
