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 4-year-old complained of his throat hurting, so I gave him a drop of Thieves in some water to drink. I would have preferred for him to gargle it, but he doesn't know how to do that yet. He didn't mind drinking it and didn't complain about his throat again that day.

The next morning he said it hurt again, but he didn't want to drink the same stuff; so I gave him water with Lemon oil in it. He was a big fan. (I should mention that Lemon oil needs to go in a glass made out of glass... it eats plastic.)

He's asked for Lemon "juice" several times since then and really likes it. And he quit complaining about his throat.
