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.

I did not go to the doctor at all, but since my mom and several others had recently tested postitive for flu, I can rightly assume that is what I had as well. I had just experienced a miscarriage, so my immunity was low and I was vulnerable. Two days later, I was extremely fatigued with body aches, fever, congestion, coughing, and sneezing.

I immediately began using my Young Living essential oils. I put a couple drops of Peppermint neat (not diluted) on my temples and forehead. I used a few drops diluted in olive oil to rub all over my lower back, abdomen, and chest. Then pulled the blanket to my chest. I felt amazing relief as the blanket caused a warming sensation all over my body. I could breathe much better and it lowered my temp just enough to remain comfortable, yet still fight the infection. I also did the same thing with Frankincense once or twice. I diffused Thieves and Peppermint, swapping back and forth.

I drank as much water as I could (with a drop of added Lemon), I drank herbal tea with a drop of Lemon and/or Peppermint. I also made a "hot toddy" with natural, raw, local honey, a drop of Lemon, and a drop of Peppermint. I actually found myself revised. I ate fruits and vegetables, knowing my body needed extra nutrition to recover.

Within 2 days, I was up, still a little weak and foggy-headed, but up and about my life with no fever. I give God the glory and I am thankful He is allowing my body to continue to heal completely.
