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.

Thursday when I went into work at 6:30 a.m., I felt normal. But by 11 a.m. the glands in my neck had swelled up, I had a headache, and my throat was starting to hurt. By the time I went home, I was pretty miserable.

As soon as I got home, I went to bed and slept until about 7:30 that evening. When I woke up, I still felt terrible and thought I would have to go to the doctor the next day... which I really didn't want to do.

So I thought I would look into what essential oils might combat an infection of sorts. I had read somewhere that taking Frankincense, Oregano, and Thieves in a capsule could be paralleled to taking an antibiotic, so I thought I would give it a try.

Recipe I used:

2 drops of Frankincense
6 drops of Oregano
12 drops of Thieves blend

I took the oils in a "0" capsule with 6-8 ounces of water, 3 times a day for 3 days.

By Friday night my glands were drastically smaller, and my throat did not hurt anymore. By Saturday evening I could not feel my glands at all. I am so grateful for my essential oils!
