Note: 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. 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.


Until about 5 years ago when I cleaned up my diet, I had always been a horrible Spring allergy sufferer. Over the past three years, I have gone all Spring without having to live on allergy medication like I had done in the past. There is always about 2 weeks that I still suffer during the Spring.

Last week, I was about to leave for my daughters softball game and my eyes began itching and I could feel an allergy episode about to occur. I looked on the app on my phone to see what oils I had available. I did find that Lavender was an antihistamine.

I immediately applied a drop of Lavender to my Vitaflex points on my hand for the sinuses. The softball game was very windy and normally I would have been scared that my eyes would swell and itch and water. I had not one symptom. I sat and enjoyed the entire game symptom free.

I was super excited about the result that I shared it with my sister-in-law who is a Spring allergy sufferer. She tried the same trick and I checked with her a couple of days later and she said that it made her feel a lot better as well.

I would love to share more about these amazing essential oils with you.
