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.


From the age of 3 my son began having asthma attacks, resulting in several hospital admissions with Ventolin (Salbutamol) nebulisers in hospital and puffers at home.

Along the way I worked out that the asthma was gluten-induced, so we cut his wheat intake significantly, especially in winter when changes with weather conditions seemed to trigger the attacks.

Nearly 2 years ago I began using the Breathe Again oil blend whenever he had an asthma attack. At first I still had to use 1/2 as much Ventolin as usual, but that was encouraging. As time went on, I found that the Breathe Again was able to replace the Ventolin altogether.

In addition, I got him to choose oils to put on himself everyday. Again, as time went on, he became more tolerant of wheat products and I started letting him have more, until he was eating wheat all the time. (This took about 9 months.) He hardly gets wheezy at all now, but when he does I find that applying a few drops of the Breathe Again blend to both front and back of his chest stops the wheezing in 5 minutes and a 2nd application is not required.

Having said all that, he has been eating a lot more wheat-based foods over the past few months and in that time he has had 3 episodes of wheezing. The Breathe Again didn't eliminate the wheezing in 5 minutes like it used to, so I put 2 drops of Frankincense on his feet as well.That did the trick.

I am convinced that he will continue to heal of the gluten-intolerance as time goes by and Breathe Again and Frankincense will deal with the breathing issues that arise in the meantime.

Incidentally, his favourite oil at present is the Highest Potential blend and before that it was the Grounding blend. He is now 7 years old.
