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.

Last night my good-natured 6.5 year old son went to sleep with a little sore throat and some hoarseness. After sleeping two hours, he woke up screaming that his throat hurt. As I didn't have any Thieves spray, I used Chloraseptic and he went right back to sleep. This happened about every hour at least 4 times and each time a croupy croaky cough would accompany his screaming out from the PAINFUL sore throat.

At about 4:30 am he again woke up screaming, this time I did not spray, but brought him to the bathroom, laid him on the floor and turned on the hot water in the shower. Then I got my daughter.

She asked what oils he had had. I said he went to bed with 3 drops of Thieves diluted with almond oil in a capsule before bed, also with a small amount on his feet.

After consulting the essential oils reference book, we put on the following: PanAway diluted with almond oil on his throat (1 drop PanAway w/2 drops almond oil), 2 drops RC diluted with 2 drops Ortho Ease on his chest, and 2 drops Eucalyptus Globulus with 2 drop Ortho Ease on his chest, 2 drops Eucalyptus Globulus on each foot applied neat.

We put him in bed (now it was about 5:30 am) and didn't wake up until 10:30 am with a smile on his face. His throat still hurts a little because there is still a LOT OF GUNK in his throat, but today we'll be applying the same every 2-3 hours or so.

You may wonder why I'm so amazed! I've seen great things with the oils, but his throat must have been excruciating to scream the way he did. I so love the oils and thank our Almighty Father for giving us the oils and inspiring Gary Young to do what he does!
