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.
Since 1977 I have had a yearly bout with bronchitis. Some years I tried to ignore it or treat it with natural meds. Those years it would drag on for months until I gave up and took the antibiotics.
In the last decade or so, the only thing that would stop an attack would be 10 days of antibiotics, and even those were becoming less effective. Also, antibiotic side effects would last for another week after the disease was subdued. My body became racked year round with candidiasis and hearing loss.
This year (2012), I instead followed this regimen with my essential oils:
1. Three times per day: 6 drops Thieves, 4 drops Frankincense, and 2 drops Citrus Fresh taken internally.
2. Periodically I rubbed Balsam Fir on my chest to improve breathing.
3. Every night for a week, I used the Raindrop Technique.
Since I did not have someone near who could do the Raindrop Technique on my back for me, I applied the oils to my feet using the Vita Flex foot chart and concentrating on the nose and lung areas.
After that week my symptoms faded into nothing. Raindrop Technique oils used were (in this order): Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Cypress, Wintergreen, Marjoram, and Peppermint. All all these come with the Raindrop Technique Kit.
Finally my hearing improved, and candidiasis has disappeared.

|5.||"Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."||Link|

The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."||Link|
|9.||"The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."||Link|
