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.

A friend of mine is constantly apologizing for her constant sniffling. She lets everyone know that she does not have a cold and is not sick, but she cannot stop the constant use of a tissue and the annoying sound of a liquid-sounding nose. She would sniffle all the time... during conversations, while cooking... whatever we would be doing.

I had my Young Living Essential Oils mini bag and pulled out Lavender essential oil after reviewing my essential oils reference book (essential oil reference book).

"Here," I said, "Put two drops in your hand and breathe the Lavender fragrance in deeply." She looked at me and said okay but was not too sure that it would help. "Go ahead," I said, "Breathe in again." And she did.

We were sitting around enjoying the beautiful view from her country home, talking about this and that. After about ten minutes she exclaimed, "I have not sniffled in a long time! I have not needed to use my tissue!" And of course the rest of us all noticed it before she even said anything.

That Lavender essential oil did exactly what the reference guide said it would do. It really is good for allergies and rhinitis. I made a believer out of my friend!

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
2."[L]avender oil inhibits immediate-type allergic reactions [anaphylaxis] by inhibition of mast cell degranulation in-vivo and in-vitro."Link
3."The lemon-based nasal spray [containing Lemon, Melaleuca Quinquenervia, and Ravintsara] was a good alternative to conventional medicine for the treatment of perennial [pet dander, dust mites] and seasonal allergic and vasomotor rhinopathy."Link
4."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
5."The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."Link
6."In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
