Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils 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. Buyer beware.


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.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: fever — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
2.Associated topics: fever — "Burn Healing Potential of Nigella sativa seed oil in rats.... Nigella sativa L. (Black cumin) has shown a broad spectrum of pharmacological effects like antipyretic [fever reducing], analgesic [pain reducing], anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.... The present study suggests the burn wound healing action of seeds may be due to anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of major compounds in the oil."Link
