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.
I have a severe allergy to soy, which is in a lot of foods and cosmetics. There are over 90 ways companies can label soy without saying "soy". They can even list soy by the names of its derivatives or byproducts. Because of this labeling issue, I am always on high alert.
I cannot take Benadryl because it actually contains soy. Nor can I have an EpiPen because of my heart conditions. So it has been up to me to find a way by using my own intuition.
When I find myself having a reaction to soy -- a slight topical reaction -- I wash the spot with Thieves essential oil blend and then apply Lavender essential oil mixed with some coconut oil and sometimes honey. Then I drink one teaspoon of Pink Himalayan Salt in a glass of water.
If I have started to go into anaphylactic shock (which causes the throat to close and the breathing to be obstructed or to stop), I immediately put a drop of Lavender oil under my tongue and take a tablespoon of Pink Himalayan Salt in a glass of water. Once the shock has worn down, I take a tablespoon of honey to help my body to recover.
This protocol has helped several times. My doctors are amazed when I tell them about it.

|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|
