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.


Yesterday, my 15-year-old son and I were stung by mad hornets. I tried EVERY remedy under the son that I had heard of and then some...baking soda paste, sucking the venom out, bleach...you name it. I even carved an Idaho potato the shape of my knuckle (location of the sting) to see if the potato starch might pull out the pain.

I'm not allergic to stings. But it felt like I was being stung repeatedly in the same spot over and over again for over 3 hours! My son on the other hand was handling his (3) stings to my (1) like a pro.

Next I took 600mg of Ibuprofen and a dose of Benadryl.

I then spotted the small bottle of Jade Lemon that my sponsor gave me as a gift when I signed up Sunday to get an oils kit. Not knowing what Jade Lemon is typically used for, I put about 4-5 drops (desperate dose), over the entire knuckle and swelling.

Within minutes the sting began to fade and within an hour there was a noticeable change in the swelling. I applied the drops 3 more times throughout the night. By morning the pain was gone! I'm sold and I don't even have my oils kit yet!

Tonight my husband had a bad allergic reaction to some mold. He pulled out what should have been a clean set of sheets for our bed. They had obviously been put away damp. He was coughing and sneezing his head off. Again I put about 4-5 drops of Jade Lemon (desperate dose), into the palm of his hands and told him to inhale....the man now loves oils!

I cannot wait to try my kit and experiment for my family with Autism, ADHD, Bi-polar, ear infections, vertigo, and many other ailments. I'm so glad I've learned about high quality essential oils!

1.Associated topics: cough — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
2.Associated topics: general-pain — "We examined the evidence regarding the effect of herbal medicine on pain in people with non-specific low-back pain (LBP).... Lavender essential oil applied by acupressure appeared effective in reducing pain and improving flexibility compared to conventional treatment."Link

4.Associated topics: general-pain,swelling-/-swollen-/-puffy — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
5.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "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
6.Associated topics: general-pain — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
7.Associated topics: general-pain — "In traditional folk medicine, tarragon [Artemisia dracunculus L. (Asteraceae)] has been used for treatment of pain and gastrointestinal disturbances.... This study reported the peripheral and central antinociceptive activity of the EOAD [essential oil of A. dracunculus] and rationalized the traditional use of the plant in the treatment of different painful conditions."Link
8.Associated topics: general-pain — "Ruxiang (Gummi olibanum), the dried gum resin of Boswellia carterii (BC) [frankincense], has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to alleviate pain and inflammation for thousands of years.... The data show that BC extract has significant anti-arthritic and anti-inflammation effects and suggest that these effects may be mediated via the suppression of pro-inflammatory cytokines."Link
