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.

This weekend the winds were up and stiring all the ragweed and other pollen around. I also helped clean a ladies house. I started to get a cold & sore throat by saturday and began taking inner defense and using RC, breath again, and Thieves oils on my chest, neck and feet, and increased my NingXia Red to 1 ounce 4x a day.

I was feeling much better by Saturday night, but then Sunday I went to a friend's house who had cats. I used to have asthmatic symptoms when I was around cats (allergies to pollen, cats, ragweed. It was the allergy trifecta for me!), but I hadn't done that in several years. I think because my body was already stressed and dealing with additional irritants that it got overwhelmed and I ended up wheezing and having an asthma attack.

I went out to my car and grabbed my oils. I pulled off my socks and shoes and oiled my feet with RC and breath again and Aroma seiz. I also oiled my chest and back of my neck. Then I had my son (who is 10) take several of the oils I had and put them on my back similar to a Raindrop Technique. I did Thieves, RC, breath again, Aroma Siez, Lavender and finally Peppermint.

Within 5-10 minutes the wheezing was almost totally gone. After 15-20, though tired, my breathing was almost completely clear and my sinuses were opening as well.

This would have taken much longer in the past and I would have ended up trying to get a rescue inhaler. (I haven't had to in 7 years thanks to the oils, so possible clinic visit?)

I went inside and filled up the bathroom sink with hot water and added a couple drops of RC to the water, drapped a towel over my head and breathed in the steam/diffusing oil for several minutes as well to really get some of the oils into my lungs. It was still difficult to inhale through my nose at that point or i would have just cupped my hands over my nose..

As of today (monday) I am 85-95% well, with only a minor cough and some sinus congestion that I expect to be gone in the morning after another night next to my diffuser and also applying Lemon and Lavender around the outside of my ear and down to my lymph nodes to help with additional draining.

I am still taking 2 inner defense 3x a day and 3-4 ounces of NingXia Red and oiling with RC every few hours. I will do this protocol for at least 2 more days. Then decrease it (but continue) for a few more days. In the past, this weeked would have stretched out into almost 2 weeks of breathing and congestive issues. 3 days to healing is amazing!

I feel that the oils supported my healing and I love that I had no side effects like some of the meds I used to take BC (before children). As a mom of 4 kids now, feeling light headed or having other side effects from over the counter meds
isn't ok and healing in 3 days instead of 14 is wonderful.

Thank you Young Living and God's perfect pharmacy, essential oils!
