Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I have become allergic to artichokes. I had enjoyed artichokes all my life so it was only after several attacks with a few hive and carefully looking for the common thread I identified the culprit.

To confirm my sensitivity to artichokes I intentionally ate a few bites. In only a couple of minutes hives broke out on my arms first then all over me. My throat began to be restricted, and vision affected. I fought the sensation that I was about to black out.

Lavender has anti-histamine characteristics so I slathered it on liberally, repeatedly, and breathed deeply. Symptoms arrested and began to reverse slowly. I avoid artichokes now, and carry Lavender Essential Oil with me everywhere.

Additional keyword(s) assigned by the editor: anti histamine, hives, artichokes.
