Recently, I noticed that one of my glands in my throat was swollen and felt like it could develop into a sore throat. I didn't want to go the route of downing a lot of herbs so I decided to apply Thieves and Melrose oils on the outside of my skin where the gland is located nightly. I know Thieves is used for prevention of getting sick and Melrose helps prevent infections.

By the 2nd night, the condition had significantly cleared up and after the 3rd night, I no longer had a swollen gland. I am very happy with these oils and will use them from now on whenever I notice my glands getting swollen.
