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.

At my daughter's recent wedding, a close friend ate a granola bar with sunflower oil knowing she was allergic to it. Her throat immediately started to close up, roof of mouth tingling and ears as well.

Her sister asked if I had any oil "concoctions" with me. Of course, I never leave home without a couple of my oils. That day I chose Peppermint and Lavender that I had with me. I put two drops of Peppermint in the back of her throat and rubbed three drops of Lavender on her neck. Immediately she noticed the worsening had stopped.

I instructed her to put a drop on the back of her hand and every minute for 10 minutes she was to breathe it in for an hour after that time. I also had her put 1 drop into 500 ml of water and had her sip the water as well. She was completely back to normal within that hour. She was considerably more comfortable within the first 5 minutes albeit she was still experiencing effects of the reaction.

People that knew were both shocked and amazed. The oils never cease to amaze me and it's true. I can't leave home without them. They have become a part of my morning regime, day and night time wellness.
