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.

My work mandated that all employees take the flu shot. Funny thing, 2 of my colleagues have had the flu anyway and were out for several days. I've been surrounded by lots of illness this season.

Early in the season I felt like "something" was trying to take hold. I immediately grabbed my Thieves oil, put 2 drops in my non-dominant hand, rotated my right thumb in my palm clockwise then held in on the roof of my mouth for a couple of minutes. Success.. nothing transpired.

As the holidays have come and gone there has been at least 5 distinct occasions when I've felt that illness was trying to creep in. One in particular stands out. You know the minute you have a sore throat? You swallowed, then the next swallow it's there, and it wasn't a minute ago? I had it on the right side of my throat. I grabbed the Thieves oil and this time dropped it on my tongue and held it to the roof of my mouth. I was at work and was in a hurry to see my next patient. Yes I'm a healthcare professional so I'm around a lot of germs, viruses... Viola... once again, nothing materialized. Before, that symptom usually meant an onslaught of more and full blown strep or flu or upper respiratory junk... Thieves Oil Rocks

I love Young Living Oils! I feel that I have a proactive approach to mine and my family's health. I don't have to wait, I've got what I need.

Be blessed,
