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 11-year-old daughter had cold symptoms along with a fever. I rubbed several drops of Peppermint on each of her feet to bring down the fever. I figured that would also help with the runny nose and coughing.

The fever went down fairly quickly, but it came back in a few hours. Although I didn't use a thermometer, her fever didn't seem as high this time. I repeated the Peppermint on both feet. Again the fever came down quickly but returned in a few hours, although my daughter didn't feel as hot as she had before.

After repeating the Peppermint drops a third time, a mild fever came back. I decided not to eliminate the fever altogether but to let it help my daughter's body fight off the flu virus.

I was not as aggressive with the oils as I would have liked because we're relatively new at this, and my daughter was reluctant to even let me use the Peppermint. However, she was over her flu in two days with no residual weakness. My son, who went to the same school, said it took a classmate two weeks to recover from the effects of flu.
