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 four-year-old went to bed with a fever. I used my usual bedtime routine:

Peace & Calming on the chest diluted in coconut oil.
Valor on the feet.
Lavender on his tummy (since he reported a stomachache).

He woke up upset that the "bug" was coming back, and he felt sick again. He would not let me touch him with any oils. I followed his lead and simply opened my bottle of Peace & Calming and let the aroma drift.

Within about one minute he was asking for me to put it on his chest. Within a few minutes he allowed me to rub Peppermint in coconut oil on his feet to help with his fever, headache, and nausea.

The anxiety sure didn't last long!
