Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My daughter has always had trouble teething. She usually has a period of four days that consists of high fever (103-104 range), tired, fussy, no appetite, runny nose and any other classic teething symptoms that I have missed. These teething episodes would happen about every 7 weeks whenever she would cut a new tooth.

We were tired of giving her the typical over the counter fever reducers and worried about her suffering side effects from them. I remembered that I had some Peppermint oil on hand, so I rubbed some on the bottom of her feet and it took her fever from 103.8 down to 100.5 degrees within 25 minutes.

Shortly after applying the Peppermint oil, she fell into a deep sleep and began sweating and so began the decrease in temperature. My husband and I were amazed at her transformation! We make sure to never run out of Peppermint oil and we know we can count on it during her teething episodes!
