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.

I have had allergies for several years, mainly to molds, mildew, trees, grasses, weeds, etc. In 2006 I had to go to emergency because I had a major problem with my vision and terrible migraines.(The vision happened in the middle of the afternoon) Of course ,they could find nothing wrong with my eyes except a little bit of swelling in the eyeball.They could not explain at all why they couldn't see what I was or was not seeing. It was scary. I was like this for months. I also went to 2 eye doctors and they could find nothing.

Anyway, my allergy appointment was due and explained the situation to my allergist, who said I should have gone to him when it happened. He said he has heard of it happening and the trees were probably what did it for me being that I am surrounded by 20 acres of trees. Following several tests it turns out I had a severe sinus infection. Went through 2 bouts of antibiotics and steroids. The side affects were terrible. I then decided enough and began using the Young Living oils. I had a couple but had never really used them much. I got the Essential Oil Desk Reference and followed the protocol on page 400 under the Nasal Irrigation Regimen. 12 drops Rosemary, 4 drops Melaleuca Ericifolia, 8 tablespoons very fine salt (salt flower).

I got myself a Neti pot and started using it. The results have been amazing! Use it for as many days and as often as you feel necessary. I just went with my gut feeling. I still use it when I feel any type of symptom coming on. For the first time I began sneezing, my sinuses would drain out, my ears even became unplugged. My eyes slowly began hurting less and the swelling in the eyeball(s) itself went away. It made a lot of sense since ears, nose, throat and vision are all affected by the sinuses.

You should also know that during this time I had begun allergy shots (bad side effects) since my doctor had run out of options for me. I was also on Zyrtec D, Maxalt for migraines. A slew of drugs that only MASKED or HID the symptoms so I never knew they were getting worse. I informed my doctor I would be using the oils to take care of my allergies in the future. Also, that I would still see him yearly, I do think that is important, but no more drugs. Hope this helps some of you.

The oils are awesome!! I hope this wasn't too long but I really felt the background info was necessary. If one oil doesn't work, try another. I have other testimonials on allergies and other oils. I will be posting those also in the near future.
