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 wife has had mastitis several times while breast feeding. The symptoms are fairly predictable. Recently, when she felt she was coming down with it again, I suggested that she take Thieves.

She diffused 12 drops of coconut oil with 3 drops of Thieves and rubbed that on the bottom of each foot before she went to bed that night. She did not develop the severe and debilitating symptoms. In fact, she felt better in the morning and continued to apply the coconut oil with Thieves on each foot for two more days.

She was relieved that she never got the 104F temperatures or the physical discomfort that come with mastitis. She did not have to go to her OB for penicillin. Although she does not care if she takes penicillin, any time it can be avoided is great news to me.
