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 having a lot of discomfort and stinging in his eyes. I took him to the eye doctor, and she said that he has an eye allergy and that he has small bumps on the inside of his eyelids. She prescribed for him to have a steroid drop put in his eyes 4 times a day for 5 days.

Instead I put Frankincense and Lavender essential oils in some V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex and rubbed it around my son's eyes and a little over his eyelids a few times a day. I also had him put a drop of Frankincense in his palms and cup his hands over his eyes for about 5-10 minutes (eyes open if he could).

I ran Lavender, Peppermint, and Lemon essential oils in the diffuser and alternated those with Thieves essential oil blend. Within a few days, my son's eyes were no longer bothering him.

I am so happy to know that if he continues to get bad eye allergies year after year, I have some natural options. We are so blessed to have such an awesome gift!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
2.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
3.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
4.Associated topics: eyes — "Researchers report that carnosic acid, a component of the herb[s] rosemary [and sage], promotes eye health. The team found that carnosic acid protects retinas from degeneration and toxicity.... Their findings suggest that carnosic acid may have clinical applications for the outer retina, including age-related macular degeneration."Link
