Don't know what I think about this product. Can not get the recipe code on the box to work. Contacted customer service four days ago about scan codes giving a error message that the recipe page doesn't exist. Was asked to send an email. I sent the email and have not heard from them since. Very frustrating.
Last week I had a severe seasonal allergy attack. I felt I was being strangled from the inside of my throat. I coughed and sneezed so bad. The next morning I felt tough. I didn't know I had little to no voice until I called my dad and spoke. Then I had to call my aunt and my voice got worse. So I got my little reference book out and it said for laryngitis 3 oils 2 of which I didn't own one I did which is this thyme oil. So I was going to put it into my diffuser and decided to take a sniff from the bottle. Nothing cleared this throat/voice until I took a sniff of this oil. Something in my throat released and I got my full voice back. My aunt couldn't believe it and I called my parents back and they like myself was in disbelief that this just worked. I had left my husband a message while I was hoarse joking with him that a break was coming his way with my loss of voice. It's my only way of hearing how bad I sounded but it got worse after that message because my voice was almost gone completely. Was this a fluke or a miracle cure I don't know. But my dad wants some of this oil for a friend who's always losing his voice cause of allergies. I hope it works for him like it did me. Amazing! Thanks for this product!
