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.

Last month I succumbed to the worst sinus infection of my life. It was so bad, it felt like a "toothache" on the whole left side of my face. The skin was incredibly sensitive to touch, particularly on my left temple, believe it or not! I couldn't sleep, the pain was so bad.

This all happened on New Year's Eve, when no doc's offices were opened. To help me get through it, I did the following for several days in a row:

Saline nasal rinse with warm water, salt, and Thieves (very small amount, it can sting but it helps!).

Two capsules morning and night of Thieves blend oil.

Facial application mixed with V-6 of the following oils: RC, Pine, Lavender, Hyssop, Myrtle, Eucalyptus.

None of these things "cured" the infection (this time!), and I ended up needing a high powered antibiotic. But they gave me relief when I thought there was none to be had! I love my oils!

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: sinus, sinuses, nasal, saline.
