I have been diffusing Thieves and no one in my home is getting sick except me! Three colds have turned into nasty bronchitis with sinus pain and a cough that kept me awake.

My formula that has been amazing and worked better than inner defense was:

2 capsules filled with a total of 12-14 drops Lavender
4-5 drops Frankincense
4 drops Oregano
4-5 drops Orange or Lemon.

I did not do this the first time and was sick for too long. I was not comfortable at first taking all this oil internally... But it was my last attempt before getting some antibiotics and steroids. The combo of the oils decreased the inflammation in my lungs (Frankincense), the Lavender dried me up and stopped the post nasal drip, the Orange boosted my immunity, and the Oregano cleared out the infection. I am still amazed at how this works!

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: bronchitis, sinus, cough, congestion.
