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.

Recently, I woke in the middle of the night with a lump in my throat making it hard to swallow and a queasy feeling in my stomach. I knew I was coming down with a doozy of a cold or the flu and it was coming on fast. I got up, put five drops of Thieves oil In a capsule, plus one drop of Peppermint oil to quell my stomach symptoms and went back to bed.

In the morning, I again took five drops of Thieves and I added in 2 drops of Lemon oil (which is something I take every day). I repeated this treatment three more times throughout the day and continued the treatment for the next five days.

That first day, I did have very slight sniffles and blew my nose about three times. I could feel the cold in my system (particularly in the lungs) and continued until I felt no more internal symptoms--which took the duration of the treatment. The cold or flu never did manifest or go full-blown.

This is the second time I thwarted a cold in this way using Thieves oil. In my 56 years of life, I've never been able to stop cold from coming on once the train left the station. I'm convinced and hooked!
