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.

My son-in-law developed a high fever of 103 degrees this week. I did a search for testimonials on fever and saw that Peppermint was the essential oil used most successfully.

The majority of the testimonials seemed to be regarding children and advocated using Peppermint on the feet every 2 hours. However, one testimonial author said that they used it every 30 minutes for 2 hours with good results, and I assumed this was an adult.

Since the fever was so high, I gave my daughter some Peppermint essential oil and told her what the testimonials said. She used it on her husband every 30-40 minutes. I ran it by their house around 8 am, and they had an appointment at their doctor's office at 10:30 am.

My daughter reported to me that within 45 minutes his fever was down one full degree. After 90 minutes it was normal, and, by the time he got to the doctor's office, his temperature was actually recorded at 97 degrees.

With all his vomiting and other symptoms, the doctor was amazed that my son-in-law had no fever. Unfortunately, all he could tell his doctor was that his wife put something on his feet, because he had been so out of it that he had not known what she had used.

We laughed afterward about how, in his semi-delirious state, my son-in-law had been irritated at how she was tickling his feet when she was applying the oil. He had no idea what she was doing!

1.Associated topics: fever-/-febrile -/-temperature-/-(Pyrexia) — "[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

(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
