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.


My cat is allergic to the Pine Sol tile cleaner I was using. The allergy started with a slight cough and continued to get worse until he was coughing several times a day with a coughing episode lasting up to 5 minutes.

Once I finally figured out what was making him sick, I started him on a regiment of the Thieves oil blend. I used 1 drop of Thieves to 12 drops of pure coconut oil and rubbed it on the bottom of his paws once a day.

Within about 3 days his coughing episodes were cut in half. A few more days later he was down to coughing only once a day.

The coconut oil I use is from Tropical Traditions which is the purest coconut oil I have found and my cat likes it.

After about a week of using the Thieves his cough had cleared up completely.

3.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
