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.

My 14 year old daughter came to me with a sore throat where she could barely swallow. She had swelling on the left tonsillar area, and low grade temp present also.

We placed a drop of Lavender on cotton balls, and placed one in each ear. Also used a drop of Clove in tsp of agave (she doesn't like the taste of Clove), also alternated that with Melrose in the agave. Would use Thieves on the outside of the throat and occassionally Raven.

Within few hours she was able to swallow and no temp. She continued to improve, only to have her 17 year old brother come to me with "my throat is really sore"... guess what he got too ... LOL

Thankfully they both recouperated quickly. Don't forget the age old gargling with warm salt water also. :-)
