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 was away from home eating strange foods and also wearing a new shirt that had never been washed. I broke out into itchy hives all over my entire body (still don't know the actual cause). I had never had anything like this happen before and was pretty much freaking out!

As is ingrained in me by society, my first thought was, "Quick! Take some Benadryl!" But I could not stand the thought of being knocked out the rest of the day, especially since I have small children to look after.

So I inhaled some Peace & Calming oil blend to chill me out and got out the rest of my essential oils. I started with Lavender oil under my tongue and the Tranquil oil blend on my wrists and neck. I did this about every 15-20 minutes and then also added Peppermint to the bottom of my feet.

I continued to inhale Peace & Calming and Stress Away whenever I was feeling anxiety about the situation. After a couple of hours, the hives were 95% gone, and I went to bed. In the morning all traces were completely gone!
