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.

I have been interested in oils for some time now and finally have just started using them in the last few months with much satisfaction! My husband however thinks it is a bunch of "hippie stuff" that is only in my head. However, he has always supported my love of them and doesn't mind when I diffuse them.

So on to the story; for close to a week or week and a half my husband got a cold and his throat hurt so bad he didn't want to swallow and finally said he thought it was more then just a cold and was planning on going into the doctor. That was on Saturday morning. I asked him if he would consider trying my oil concoction three times on Saturday and if it wasn't better by Sunday he could go to the doctor on Monday. He agreed and told him I wanted to mix 1 drop of Thieves oil with 5 drops of Lemon in some water and have him gargle a few times then end up swallowing it. He has tasted Thieves before and really wasn't a fan of the taste but tried it anyways.

He did it 3 times that day and Sunday morning he was complaining about his back and of course I start thinking of what oils to use and doing that reminded me of his gargling and I asked him if he had done it that morning yet and he said he didn't need to because his throat no longer hurt! With that comment he looked at me in disbelief that those words came out of his mouth and then smiled and said, "I guess you were right dear." Haha, love those words!! Needless to say he doesn't need a doctor anymore and is a lot more open to trying the oils first! YAY! I love my oils!
