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 two children (ages 5 and 8 months) and I all had mild colds. My friend, who has been with Young Living for about a year, recommended I try Peppermint and Thieves oils. I applied Thieves oil to the soles of our feet morning and night, and several times a day I placed a drop of Peppermint oil into my hand, rubbed my palms together and took several deep breaths.

I felt my sinuses clear with each breath, and within minutes the drippy mucous had dried up. I had my son do the same, and 5 minutes after breathing in his oil, he ran up to me and said "Mommy my sniffles are ALL GONE!"

I did not apply Peppermint oil to my infant as I had read that it could be too strong for their skin, but I placed a drop on the side of my finger and as I gave her her bottles, she was able to breathe it in from there. She too, also went from having a drippy nose and a raspy cough to being clear. I didn't use a single over-the-counter cold remedy once I discovered how well these two oils worked in relieving cold symptoms!
