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.

My Mom recently made her semi-annual "stock-up" trip to a particular store in another town. When she walked in the door, she says that the overpowering smell of chlorine greeted her immediately. Because of the long drive she had made to get to the store, she decided to do her shopping anyway.
The next day she began coughing and experiencing irritation in her throat and lungs that couldn't seem to be calmed by anything she tried. Her voice became hoarse and raspy, and she could hardly talk because of the coughing. An acquaintance suggested that her lungs were burned by the chlorine she had breathed; she recommended my Mom drink water with Lavender in it and begin to diffuse Lavender nightly.

Within the day she noticed an improvement and over the next several days the coughing and irritation subsided altogether until she was symptom-free.
