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.


I have been using Young Living Essential Oils for the past 3 years. I was a teacher for 38 years and was sick every winter. I was at the doctor's office at least 3-4 times with sore throat, infected sinuses, colds and flu. I missed many Xmas dinners with my family because I was so sick!

The Young Living Essential Oils have given me a new healthy solution for prevention all of those old winter illnesses that I had before. Through Young Living Essential Oils, whenever I feel a cold, flu or bacterial infection coming on, I immediately start my routine of ingesting them.

First, I must say that in winter, I don't leave home without my bottle of the Thieves Oil blend. Every morning and night, I drop a couple of drops on my tongue to help keep the virus, and bacteria at bay. When I happen to be around people who are obviously sick, I drop more drops on my tongue throughout the day.

I then drop 4-5 drops of Frankincense oil, along with 4-5 drops of Oregano in a 00 size capsule. You can buy them at the local health food store.

I drop 3 drops of Ravensara or Thieves in about 2 tablespoons of water and swish the mixture all around the inside of my mouth for 1-3 minutes, gargle and swallow.

If the bug is trying to really get a hold, I drop 4-5 drops of the ImmuPower oil blend in a 00 capsule and take at the same time as the Frankincense oil and Oregano.

I haven't caught the flu, viruses or colds for the past 2 years, and I intend to keep it that way.

Many Young Living essential oil users have found their own remedy for preventing these conditions. This is my own discovery and it definitely works for me!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: respiratory,colds — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: respiratory,colds,sinus-infection — "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
3.Associated topics: viruses — "The presence of beta-caryophyllene in many essential oils might contribute strongly to their antiviral ability. These results indicate that phenylpropanoids and sesquiterpenes present in essential oils contribute to their antiviral activity against HSV [herpes simplex virus]."Link
4.Associated topics: influenza,viruses,colds — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
5.Associated topics: respiratory — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
6.Associated topics: bacteria — "[We] investigate[d] antimicrobial treatment of an infected [Staphylococcus aureus] cochlear implant, undertaken in an attempt to salvage the infected device.... 5 percent tea tree oil completely eradicated the biofilm following exposure for 1 hour.... Treatment of infected cochlear implants with novel agents such as tea tree oil could significantly improve salvage outcome."Link
7.Associated topics: bacteria,respiratory,sinus-infection,sore-throat — "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
8.Associated topics: bacteria — "As proven in vitro, essential oils [Eucalyptus, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Thyme, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Clove, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Sage] represent a cheap and effective antiseptic topical treatment option even for antibiotic-resistant strains [such] as MRSA and antimycotic [antifungal]-resistant Candida species."Link
