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.

I just got the first symptoms of a cold: sinus pressure, stuffy nose, watery eyes, swollen glands, scratchy throat. I wanted to attack this right away. I decided to increase my NingXia Red to 6 oz, Inner Defense 4 pills a day, 4 Life5 a day, Essentialzyme-4 regular dosage as per bottle.

Then I started to diffuse RC, Thieves, Purification and Lemon oils alternated in the diffuser. I also applied Eucalyptus and Peppermint oil topically. I put Eucalyptus across my sinuses and under my nose. I also put it behind my ears and followed the glands down my neck. I layered Peppermint over the Eucalyptus for my ears.

It only took a few minutes for the sinus pressure to be diminish. I reapplied the oils every hour. I probably didn't need it that often but the smell was fantastic so my thinking was why not.
