Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My husband is very allergic to cats and usually cannot be at my sister's house for any lengthy period of time. Over Christmas we were there all day and night. He usually is very wheezy, red eyed, and congested.

This time I made up a bottle, with a rollerball attached to it, using the following essential oils:

20 drops Lavender
20 drops Lemon
20 drops Peppermint
20 drops Copaiba

I rolled this blend behind my husband's ears, on the back of his neck, and on his forehead between his eyes. I also applied RC essential oil blend on his chest. I repeated this regimen several times.

I have never before seen my husband feel like himself and able to have a good time when we are at my sister's house visiting because usually he is so miserable!

At one point, his eyes did get red and started to feel miserable, so I rolled the blend on his chest, back, and neck and then applied the RC to his chest and back. Within 10 minutes he was back to himself!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."[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
