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.


In October 2015 I was at Panama City Beach, FL on a mission trip for Thunder Beach. The first afternoon when I got to the lodging area I sat outside to enjoy the fresh sunshine/air, and immediately started coughing. I decided to walk to the beach and enjoy the gorgeous day, only to find my coughing got worse and my eyes were pouring tears.

I returned to the lodging. As other folks arrived they gathered outside to talk and also began coughing. None of us knew why, but it was a dry, deep cough. Someone mentioned "Red Tide" so we looked it up. Sure enough, the Red Tide was supposed to be very bad that weekend, and we had the symptoms of this allergen.

After a while I remembered I brought some oils with me. I went to my dorm and put a drop each of Lavender and Thieves oil in my hand and inhaled it. I immediately quit coughing. I took my oils to the guys and told them about them. One said "my daughter does that, I don't really get into it". I offered it to the others. One took it, and did as I said: rub hands, inhale. He immediately quit coughing. Another did the same. One just touched the hands of the other guy and inhaled (without getting his own drops), and HE quit coughing.

After seeing 4 of us immediately get relief, the first guy who "didn't get into" oils reached his hands out. One guy coughed once more, but none of the rest of us coughed again--that afternoon, overnight, or even the next morning, and the Red Tide was still there!

I don't know if this will work for all allergens, but this worked for us. Since then, I've read more and believe the Lavender, alone, would have worked; I just used both because I wasn't sure, and I love Thieves and Lavender oils blended.
