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.


Last night my 9 year old daughter had a performance at church and as soon as the performance was over with she dissolved into tears because her ear was hurting so bad.

I knew she had a little bit of a cough, but the ear pain started minutes before she was supposed to be on stage. She performed wonderfully and I had no idea about the pain until afterwards. You couldn't tell anything was wrong from the way she performed.

Her pain was so bad that my husband and I discussed taking her to the emergency room because all the walk-in clinics were closed. We ended up stopping at the drug store to get some ear drops, which did not work.

When we got home I tried a warm compress with Lavender and Grapefruit and put both behind her ears and rubbed along her eustachian tubes. Within seconds she said the pain level was cut in half.

By the time she woke up this morning the pain was gone except when she swallowed and even that wasn't too bad.

Hallelujah!
