Note: 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. 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.

Yesterday, my four-year-old woke up with a piercing earache, sobbing in pain. Poor little thing had tears streaming down her face, and none of my usual remedies were working. Normally a little Purification essential oil and a hot compress, and the pain goes right away.

Forty five minutes later, we're still rocking and I'm desperate for solutions. Nothing was working, not even maxillo-facial massage and heat! I asked her again where she hurts, and this time she points not only to her ear, but to the HUGE swollen lymph gland underneath it, which is so tender that she cries out when I touch it.

Swollen lymph gland, ha! I know what to do about that! I rubbed a little Cypress essential oil on the gland, which is known for its ability to assist in lymphatic function, and then for good measure, I rubbed a little Hyssop essential oil around the edges of her earlobe, because Hyssop is known to be good for inflammation associated with infection.

In less than 20 minutes, her pain had reduced enough that she was sitting up in her auntie's lap, eating dinner. In less than two hours and two more applications later, she was up running around as happy as a lark, and the swelling was completely gone.

I am more than grateful for these oils, and am so glad I have access to them!
