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 5 year old son started swim team and was in the water daily. Despite taking preventive measures he developed a severe otitis externa (swimmer's ear) in one ear with extreme pain and low grade fever.

After reading Debra Raybern's book, Gentle Babies, I mixed a solution of 2-3 drops each of Lavender and Melrose per 10-12 drops of V-6 oil and placed 2 drops of this solution into his ear. I also rubbed Thieves and PanAway behind his ear.

After 2 applications of this about 1 hour apart, he finally went to sleep for the night. The next morning still a little painful to touch, but no fever. Placed the drops in his ear and Thieves behind his ear about 3 times during the day and was completely gone by bedtime.
