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.

When I start to feel achy, sore throat and run down in ways that let me know I might be catching a cold or the flu I use the following treatments.

1) At the on-set I rub 2-3 drops of Immupower on my chest/lung area. I dilute it with a couple of drops of vegetable oil (V-6 or olive oil) to help with the absorbancy so the oils don't evaporate before being absorbed into the skin. I do this twice a day

2) I put 1-2 drops of Frankincense oil in a vegetable capsule and take if after a meal or with food. I do this 2-3 times daily. Make sure not to prepare the caps ahead of time as the oils will melt the caps if left inside too long before being taken.

3) Once I seem to be over the worst of the cold/flu, I switch to Clary Sage oil on the chest area diluted with vegetable oil as above. 1 to 2 times daily. I continue with the Frankincense but less frequently.

Using the above combinations I seem to recover much more quickly and my symptoms are much less severe. I often don't even get a runny nose! The combination above is my tried and true method for myself and the clients I work with.
