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.

Symptoms: Cough, runny nose, fever

Due to the nature of the symptoms and our previous experiences, this illness looked like RSV or a really bad cold. When the fever started, I immediatedly layered Thieves and Peppermint on bottoms of my 3-year-olds feet. I also started diffusing RC during naptime and at night. I also applied Thieves to my younger son in hopes that he wouldn't also get the virus. For two days, I was not getting very good results, especially with the fever.

On day three, I put a drop of Thieves in my daughter's milk, gave her 1 oz of NingXia Red, and applied Peppermint to her feet every hour. Within 2 hours she was feeling significantly better. I continued to diffuse RC at nap and bedtime. The next day I did the same thing and she is almost completely better. She still has the cough so I will continue to diffuse RC until that clears up.

My son only has a runny nose and has not suffered any other symptoms after applying Thieves that first day.
