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 3 year old came down with food poisoning after eating his afternoon snack (around 4 pm). He was pale, weak, had a fever of 102, and complained that his belly was hurting.

Shortly after that, he vomited. I cleaned him up and asked if there was anything that I could do to make him feel better. Of course he asked for his oils! He specifically requested Thieves oil. SInce he is too young to swallow a capsule, I mixed Thieves oil with a spoonful of coconut oil and a spoonful of raw honey to help with the taste. I gave that to him and within a few minutes he was asleep. He woke up a little while later and his fever was around 99 at that point.

At bedtime I gave him one more spoonful of the Thieves, honey and coconut oil mixture and he went to sleep. I expected to have a rough night since that's how he usually gets when he has a fever, but to my surprise he slept the whole night through.

I got up to check on him around 4 am and his fever was gone. When he awoke in the morning, he was 100% back to himself. I will not be without my Thieves oil!
