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.

I woke up on Monday feeling very dizzy. My ears, specially my left was buzzing and felt a mild pounding on the top of my head on the left and right side. I could not walk straight and felt very unsteady. I had to lie down in bed and slept the whole day. I could not get the strength to even eat.

I realized that the ear infection may be due to a cold that I may be catching, so I proceeded to add a drop of Melaleuca Alternifolia to the tip of my pinky finger and applied to my ear just before the inner ear and went to sleep.

After a couple of hours felt a bit better, then I proceeded to add a drop of Melrose the same way and just behind the ears. I also diffused Raven for a couple of hours on and off. I took about an ounce of NingXia Red a few times throughtout the day.

By early evening, I could get off the bed and feel the throbbing from my ears had gone down. I continued to diffuse, but now I used RC. I reapplied some more Melrose and slept all on and off through the night. By next morning, I was feeling about 90% better. I continued to diffuse Raven and reapply Melrose to my ears and was able to get up around 11:00.

I am so grateful to the oils for my speady recovery. In the past when I would feel dizzy I would be in bed for a few days.
