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.


My husband normally comes down with a severe sinus infection once or twice a year and, in turn, we all suffer! It always takes several trips to the doctor, steroids, antibiotics, shots and still lasts for several months before it finally goes away.

This past Christmas Eve my husband had been developing some sinus problems a few days prior. He had chills, nausea, severe weakness, sinus headache, dizziness and general body aches. He could hardly walk. I was afraid he might have had the flu. My parents were on their way into town, a 2 hour drive, and my children were very excited to see them. Needless to say, I did NOT want to cancel.

To relieve his nausea, I diffused Peppermint oil and also rubbed it on his temples, forehead and his pillow. I rubbed the Thieves oil blend on both of his heals and placed a Thieves throat lozenge on the bed beside him. I told him once his nausea cleared, to eat the lozenge.

In about 30-45 minutes, he came into the kitchen looking 100% better! His color was back, he was not dizzy, weakness was gone, no body aches and no headache! He felt like helping with Christmas dinner!

Just to make sure he was better, I heated up a cup of water, put local honey, 2 drops of Lemon and 2 drops of Thieves. He drank it down. He felt wonderful the whole day and never had any further sign of a sinus infection! I even heard him praising the oils to my parents, interesting, because he had not been a believer in the oils just yet!

What doctors could not do in several months,it was taken care of in 1 DAY through our use of essential oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: dizziness — "[We] evaluate[d] the efficacy of the Pycnogenol [French maritime pine bark extract] in improving cochlear flow and symptoms... for patients with Meniere’s disease (MD), tinnitus, and cochlear hypoperfusion.... Symptoms of Meniere’s disease [spontaneous vertigo, positional vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, pressure in the ear, unsteady gait], flow at cochlear level, and tinnitus improved in Pycnogenol subjects...."Link
3.Associated topics: influenza — "Taken together, we found an essential oil blend [Orange, Clove, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary] notably attenuates influenza virus PR8 infection in vitro via inhibition of viral protein synthesis at the post-transcription level. The lack of toxicity and potent specific inhibition ability make the essential oil a possible antiviral drug for influenza virus proliferation control and treatment."Link
4.Associated topics: sinus-infection — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
5.Associated topics: fatigue — "After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."Link
6.Associated topics: fatigue,headache — "Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."Link
7.Associated topics: headache — "Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
8.Associated topics: headache — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
