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.

In July my husband got pneumonia. Antibiotics and oils on his feet were not enough. I added digestive enzymes and nebulizer treatments with asthma drugs but saw little improvement. His circulation was not good and the oils were not getting to his lungs. We started using oils in capsules and saw improvement by morning.

Next problem, gout, as his kidneys were under stress from the antibiotics. I had a small bottle of Ledum I was going to use on his liver for old diesel oil absorption on his skin. He has lots of lesions on his back from chemical exposure as a farmer.

I put 20 drops in a capsule the first day as it was the only gout remedy I had. I cut back to 15 drops of Ledum the next day and for whatever reason rubbed his throbbing, purple big toe with Lemongrass.

Presto, relief in 20 minutes, and it continued if I did it 2-3 times a day. It was good in 2 weeks. The doctor said he would be sick for at least 5 weeks!

I should add that he also has a severe sleep apnea and uses a machine. From touch and go to feeling good. Now if he could only drink more water all the time! Conclusions? I don't know what worked but the Lemongrass was immediate and obvious in pain relief from the gout.

How much the Ledum did is not as obvious, the Lemongrass may not have worked so well alone. My husband will not volunteer to try getting gout again and see which worked!

I have started my shoulder on the road to recovery with the Valor oil blend, then Lemongrass twice a day.

It's my best friend. Just asked the colt who is here today with the help of Lemongrass!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: pneumonia — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: pneumonia — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
3.Associated topics: pneumonia — "Essential Oil Diffusion [lavender, marjoram, balsam fir, and peppermint] for the Treatment of Persistent Oxygen Dependence in a Three-Year-Old Child With Restrictive Lung Disease With Respiratory Syncytial Virus [RSV] Pneumonia: A 3-year-old female with central core disorder, a static myopathy affecting type one muscle fibers, with an 18-day history of oxygen requirement, acute desaturation episodes on high-flow oxygen, and persistent upper-lobe atelectasis... experienced a rapid reduction in oxygen requirement when treated with diffused plant essential oils after insufficient response to N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and dornase alfa."Link
4.Associated topics: pneumonia — "Thujaplicin, a minor component of Aomori Hiba [Hinoki], showed rather strong antifungal activity against seven kinds of plant-pathogenic fungi.... Thujaplicin and hinokitiol (the major component of Aomori Hiba [Hinoki]) also showed clear antibacterial activity against Legionella pneumophila SG 1 and L. pneumophila SG 3 [Legionnaires disease, pneumonia].... This compound showed strong insecticidal activity against Reticulitermes speratus [termites], and it also had clear acaricidal [ticks, mites] activity against Dermatophagoides farinae [house dust mites].... [T]he strong cytotoxic effect of Thujaplicin on murine P388 lymphocytic leukemia cell line [CLL, chronic lymphocytic leukemia] should be emphasized...."Link
