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.

In December I went to Turks Caicos Island to attend my best friends wedding. I have to take two flights to get there and two flights to return. It was a very stressful time. I brought all my oils with me and used them on the airplanes. I felt that my lungs were weak and the stress and anxiety of flying were causing my immune system to become weak. I used Purification, RC Lavender, & Melrose all during my stay in the Islands.

The first day we arrived I broke my great toe on coral. I immediately put ice packs and used Lavender on it. I applied arnica oil and Lavender on the toe for two applications each day for two days. On the first day the Island Nurse told me I would not be able to walk or wear a shoe for a week or more. On the third day I had no discoloring of the skin on my broken toe, no swelling and I was wearing shoes and walking normally. I did not have to take any pain medication of any kind and walked, swam and enjoyed the Island fully and the wedding.

The oils helped me on the flights and when I came home the temperature was 5 below zero and when we left the Island it was 90 degrees. I am prone to pneumonia so I continued to use RC, Melrose, Thieves and Purification after arriving home and did not get ill. I love my essential oils and use them everyday. They help my immune system fight off disease.
