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.

Buyer beware.

The stomach bug had been going around my office for a couple weeks. The daily oils that I use are White Angelica and Progessence Plus and I thought they must be helping me avert this illness. Unfortunately, I got hit with the intestinal discomfort after lunch on Thursday and I ended up leaving work early at 3:30. I didn't even feel comfortable going into the store for fear of an "accident."

I got home and went straight to bed - wondering what oil I could use. I didn't even have the strength to look into my reference book. I grabbed the Peppermint oil because I knew it helped with pain and rubbed it on my troubled abdomen area.

A little later, I got up for water and decided to take the Peppermint oil orally - but didn't have the recommended capsules. I put a couple drops on toast with jam and ate it. The Peppermint instantly cooled my throat and while it was a strange feeling, I knew I needed to get it into my internal system. I applied another treatment to my abdomen later that evening.

The next day I was up at 7AM but still felt weak but the discomfort was gone. I was able to get into work at 11:30 Friday morning. This was incredible! I only missed 4.5 hours of work. My co-workers were amazed to see me back to work because they missed multiple days of work.
