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 three-year-old daughter does not get sick very often, but when she does I have my Thieves oil blend ready! About 4 months ago she caught some type of stomach virus. She would vomit every 30 minutes.

Every time she did, I would have her sip some water and would rub a drop of Thieves essential oil on the bottom of each foot. This continued on for 6 hours. After that time, she perked up and acted normal again. By 8 hours she was up and running!

Two months later, on a Sunday, she caught another stomach bug. Just like the last time, my daughter was vomiting every 30 minutes. This time I knew exactly what would work.

I followed through with the same protocol - 1 drop of Thieves on the bottom of each foot every time she vomited along with sips of water. This time it only took 3 hours for my sweetie to be back to her normal, feisty self!

The last time she vomited and I rubbed oil on her she announced, "I'm done, Mommy." She got up from my lap and said she was hungry. I fed her crackers then broth, trying to play it safe, but that wasn't enough for her so she had a sandwich too.

In 4 hours time, she had kept down her meal and was literally running around the house playing. I felt confident that the virus was completely out of her system so we were both able to attend church worship that night.

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine....

Being a solvent of cholesterol, d-limonene has been used clinically to dissolve cholesterol-containing gallstones. Because of its gastric acid neutralizing effect and its support of normal peristalsis, it has also been used for relief of heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). D-limonene has well-established chemopreventive activity against many types of cancer. Evidence from a phase I clinical trial demonstrated a partial response in a patient with breast cancer and stable disease for more than six months in three patients with colorectal cancer."Link

Histopathological examination showed that ethanol-induced lesions such as necrosis, erosion, and hemorrhage of the stomach wall were significantly reduced after oral administration of essential oils.... Results suggest that TEO and GEO could reduce the gastric ulcer in rat stomach as seen from the ulcer index and histopathology of the stomach. Moreover, oxidative stress produced by ethanol was found to be significantly reduced by TEO and GEO."Link
