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.

On the third of January, I got sick with a bad sinus infection and chest cold. I took a 1 am and pm 12 hr Mucinex dm, one Generic 12 hr Sudafed am and pm, and one 50mg Zinc tablet daily. I rubbed the Breathe Again roll-on on my chest and then steamed with my personal steamer with a metal tea bag with a cotton ball inserted.

Into the cotton ball I placed a drop of the following Young Living Essential Oils; Lavender, Marjoram, Basil, Cypress, Pine, Spruce, Myrtle, and Eucalyptus Globulus on the cotton ball; hung the tea bag in the steamer and steamed for 15 minutes. All these oils are in the blend RC, but I had run out of that oil so I used the single oils.

Then I took the cotton ball and rubbed it on my forehead sinus areas of my face and on the mastoid bone behind my ear. I steamed three or four times a day (9 am, 1pm, 5pm, 9pm) from Wednesday through Saturday and by Sunday I was better, no coughing, little sinus drainage, and was able to go to church on Sunday and teach my Primary Class. I could hardly believe how fast I got over the virus sinus and chest symptoms with the oil and medication regimen.

I have been using Lavender Y.L. EO on my left ankle and right knee every day for several months and could feel with my finger both areas firming up. I have had no pain in my left ankle since I started using the oils. I take ansaids, anti-inflamatory pain medication 3-4 months on Aleve, 3-4 months on Ibuprophene, and 3-4 months on Aspirin 650 mg 2X a day. Aspirin everyday.

Clara R. introduced me to D. Gary Young and Young Living Therapeutic Essential Oils. I signed up as a distributor and have been purchasing the oils ever since. I started using the Young Living Oils over a year ago.

Last October I had a similar illness. I was ill for ten days, used the steamer, took 1 am and 1 pm 12 hr Mucinex dm, one Generic 12 hr Sudafed am and pm, and one 50mg Zinc tablet daily. In a week I was no better and I had to go to the doctor who prescribed 5 daily doses of antibiotic before I got better.
