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 was born January 3, 2014, in the heart of winter. Within the first month he was in and out of the doctor's office more than I wanted. He had multiple ear infections, a cough, a wheezy chest, and eczema.

The doctors were too quick to write a prescription for antibiotics and steroids for my liking, not to mention the fact that everything had a side effect! Enough was enough. I decided I was going to find a healthier way to help my family.

I was turned onto essential oils by the mother of one of my students. She was using them with her children, and that got me thinking that I should look into the oils for my own family.

I started off using Lavender and Lemon essential oils for my son's ear infections, Lavender mixed with coconut oil for his eczema, and a mixture of essential oils provided to me by my sponsor for his chest.

When we went for a checkup, my son's ears were clear, the cough and wheezy chest were clear, and his skin was no longer dry and itchy.

The doctors were impressed at how fast he had improved, since originally he was in and out of their office every other week! This was the justification I needed to know that I was moving in the right direction.
