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 son has seasonal allergies to the point that his eyes and nose swell shut, making it impossible for him to breathe through his nose at all. He was on three types of allergy medicine (Claritin, Zyrtec, and Flonase) to control his seasonal allergies. He looked better when taking the medication, but he still looked like a truck had run over him!

Then I discovered therapeutic-grade essential oils and the "LLP Allergy Bomb"! I mixed up a batch of equal parts of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint in a roll-on bottle. I rolled it on my son's feet once a day (behind the toes on both feet).

We started using the LLP Allergy Bomb in April, and my son did not have any symptoms or take any allergy medication the entire season! I am praising God for that answer. It was so comforting to have my son feeling well.

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
