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.


Last April I broke out into a massive case of hives. They were thick welts, and they itched like crazy. I even had my tongue and lips swell up so bad that I was in no state to leave my house.

I was taking massive amounts of strong allergy medicine just to keep myself comfortable, but it made me so groggy that I couldn't even take care of my 7 month old daughter. We moved to a different part of the state and the throat swelling stopped, but the hives continued (though not as bad).

Finally I went to an essential oils party and won a bottle of the Purification oil blend as a door prize. I took a soak in the bath tub every night and it helped with the hive outbreaks. I also noticed that NingXia Red juice helped. However, once the next April rolled around, I started getting uncomfortable again.

I got a Raindrop Technique done for my birthday present and I noticed a difference in the hives within two days. At first, I broke out massively bad once again (painfully and most itchy!) But two days later my arms and legs were clear and I felt better then I had in a year.

I've since performed the Raindrop on someone else, and I noticed that getting the oils on my hands made me break out again (though nowhere near as bad). And once again, once the hives cleared they once again were doing even better..

I am looking forward to getting the Raindrop done on a weekly basis to get rid of the last vestiges of hives once and for all.
