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.

I am a RN and have used essential oils for many years. My husband drives a semi and I frequently go with him on long trips. I always take the following oils with me: Peppermint, the Thieves oil blend and Lavender.

I use Peppermint after being fatigued for long hours in the truck. I put 1-2 drops in a bottle of water. This really takes the fatigue away and makes me more mentally alert. It also helps with appetite control and freshens your breath.

We use the Thieves oil for sore throats, cold symptoms etc. My husband uses it for toothaches. The Lavender I use for my skin.

These are essential oils that no one should be without, especially while on a long trip.
