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 typically let my children's fevers run their course to kill infection, as this is the purpose of a fever. However, if the fever has been high for 24 hours or the child is visibly uncomfortable, I will try to reduce the fever naturally.

I have successfully used the Purification essential oil blend to reduce fevers in my children. Although this is not generally one of the oils suggested for fever, it has been a very soothing and effective one for all of my kids.

Rubbing Purification undiluted on their forehead, neck, abdomen, or back, I have seen the fever disappear within one minute to one hour. Because this has happened multiple times, it is my go-to for fevers for the whole family. Purification provides the added benefits of antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, and immune-boosting properties.

Applying an oil to a sick child, in my experience, soothes their body and supports the body's ability to fight disease without any adverse effects.
