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.

I had to fly when I had a new sinus cold. I have always had trouble with ear pain in flight, but using the device "ear planes" has taken away any extreme pain and usually left me nearly pain-free. This time was different because of the added pressure of the head cold.

I used Thieves behind my ear and down my Eustachian tube line as well as a small dab just barely in my ear (cartilage "bowl" on edge - not at all inside the ear). Doing this has reduced pain/pressure that is still here 3 months later. I was fearful of getting an infection, but I did not!

It also takes care of pain and has allowed me not to have to go to the doctor for an annoying pain.
