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.

Cold season brings Chest/Head Congestion for most everyone. I have had Chronic Bronchitis since I was a child. Life is miserable when I have this - for me and for my family! I have Athsma, so when I am sick with this, I really struggle to breathe, and usually every breath I take ends up causing me to cough like crazy. I got very sick in the winter of 2008 and probably should have seen a doctor, but as I have said before, I do not like being on prescription drugs. This time I could hardly talk, and when I did, I didn't have much of a voice.

I called my mom and told her what I was dealing with, and she asked me what Essential Oils I had on hand at the specific time. I told her which ones I had, and she told me to use the Peppermint on my chest, forehead, neck and behind my ears. She also suggested I diffuse it into the air - I put a few drops in the water pan that is on our propane heated stove. Then she told me to take Thieves Essential Oil. She said to take one drop in a teaspoon of a hot liquid and immediately follow it with a drink of the same hot liquid. (If you take the Thieves with something cool, it will intensify the ~heat~ sensation of the Thieves, and it is very intense!) I was so sick, that I decided to take 2-3 drops several times a day instead of the 1 drop several times a day. To my amazement and my families, I sounded, looked and felt great by the third day.
