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 woke up on a Saturday morning last winter knowing I had a meeting to do 5 hours from home. The problem was that my head was stuffy, I had post-nasal drip and a bit of a scratchy throat. I was just not feeling like myself and wishing it would snow so I could cancel the meeting.

Since that really wasn't an option, I got up, did a nasal lavage with sea salt and Young Living's Rosemary and Melaleuca oils, and then went for my go-to oil for infections, Cinnamon Bark! One drop in a tsp with honey to cover and down the hatch! Well, that works great when one is at home, but I was going to be driving for 5 hours! There was no choice but to drop that Cinnamon Bark oil under my tongue.

Every hour for the next 5 hours, I dropped just one drop under my tongue and by 2 PM I felt much better. My business partner and I did that meeting and met again in the morning before returning home and I felt like a million dollars! No stuffy head, no post-nasal drip and no scratchy throat.

I've not had a full blown cold or sinus infection since using one drop of Cinnamon Bark oil under my tongue. Yes, one drop under the tongue may be hot for a bit but it's well worth it!!
