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.

Just recently I had very painful sore throat. It came on quite suddenly and my throat felt like it was swollen and it hurt to swallow or talk. My glands near my jaw were swollen as well.

I applied Eucalyptus(radiata)directly to my throat and glands and I also made an essential oil tea mix with 2 drops of Lemon, 2 drops of Eucalyptus,1 drop of Peppermint and 2 Tbsp. of honey. Then I just added 1 tsp. of this mixture to a cup of hot water and not only did it taste good (at least to me) but it was so soothing on my throat and I felt good knowing that I was getting those oils directly in contact with my throat. My throat felt worlds better within a few hours.

Then a few nights later it tried to come back and I did the above things again and then also gargled with some water to which I had added 1 drop of Eucalyptus, 2 drops of Lemon, and 1 drop of Peppermint. I swallowed it after I had gargled, and immediately the pain was diminished; and when I woke up my throat felt much better, not completely better, but I could actually talk and swallow without lots of pain. Oh, and my glands weren't as swollen either. I have also been adding Lemon oil to my water and that has also felt really good on my throat, and its boosting my immune system at the same time.

I've read lots of testimonies about essential oils and I can now say from experience that they are wonderful healers. And I love having something that I can also use with my kids when there not feeling well. Something that not only makes them feel better but actually addresses the root problem instead of just treating the symptoms.
