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.

My husband has sleep apnea and in the past has snored so heavily that he wakes up with a swollen uvula. Since we've started using the oils, this hasn't really been an issue since oils have helped to minimize his snoring (Valor and Thyme). However, he took a nap one afternoon without putting on his oils and when he woke up, his uvula was very swollen. In the past, the only thing that he had found to reduce the swelling was Benadryl. So he said, "Well, I guess I should take some Benadryl." I told him not to take it since it would just make him sleepy again, and that we should try the oils.
Since I've heard Copaiba is an excellent anti-inflammatory, I told him to try that. So we put a little bit of water in a glass and added a couple of drops of Copaiba. I left him to gargle with that, thinking it would take a bit to kick in.
A minute later, he comes and finds me to tell me that he felt the swelling go down instantly! He couldn't believe how well it worked and how quickly! He was able to eat dinner after that (it was too swollen to eat before).
