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.

I came down with a really bad cold/flu bug that caused a combination of symptoms including sore throat, swollen tonsils, cough, and major sinus congestion and pressure. I was able to relieve the sore throat by gargling Thieves, and I was combating the virus by taking the "flu bomb".

However, the sinus headache was just unbearable. I had tried everything.... RC cupped in my hands and breathed in; Breathe Again Roll-On (it helped the nose congestion a lot but not the pressure headache); Peppermint on the bridge of my nose, cheeks, and forehead (keep your eyes closed for a while after that one). But NOTHING was getting rid of this headache!

Then I tried using RC in a bowl of boiling water, putting a towel over my head and breathing it in for a few minutes. The relief was IMMEDIATE! It was evening time, so I did it a few times before bed. My headache was almost completely gone by the time I went to bed.

I woke in the morning with only a twinge of a headache and managed it by doing this a few more times throughout the day. It was an absolute game changer. The pain and fog that the headache and pressure were causing went away. And even though I was still fighting the cold, I could function like normal and work on taking care of the kids and house.

Thank goodness for these oils and all the support around finding what works!
