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.

First of all, thanks to Heavenly Father for these oils. Thanks to the person(s) who began this website for us.

My nine year old son, more especially than other children, has a bad reaction to red #40. After one of his scout meetings while talking to my co-den leader, I ran into the kitchen to see if he remembered NOT to drink any soda with his snack.

We didn't provide the soda. I entered the kitchen only 3-5 minutes after he did and already his eyes were glazed over from drinking the soda. This is the signal I look for when he has eaten anything with colors in it. He becomes SO angry and mean when he reacts to food dyes.

We drove home as soon as possible to get some oils on him before the red #40 continued to contaminate his body. I used the same oils for three weeks on his chest and liver and they didn't work that well. My son was impossible to live with for three weeks because of his meaness.

I had just learned about Idaho Balsam Fir and wanted to try it for my son's vaccine reactions. I ordered it so I could also use it for this allergic reaction to red #40 because it's good for respiratory support. I put two drops of oil on his chest and two more at night. His eyes returned to normal that night and his anger and meaness was gone by the next night.

Since then we have used this oil on the chest for two years for food allergies. My kids eat potatoes and peanut butter now.

On a separate note, my son has his own bottle of the Believe oil blend which he applies to his wrists and sniffs when he feels frustrated. We don't even use this oil on his wrists everyday and his learning disabilities have improved. He use to be two years behind in school, but is only a half grade behind now. I am confident that by the next school year he will be up to grade level. (Listen to the Believe/Gratitude tape about IBF and mercury)

Also, read the book titled, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccines" to learn more about mercury and learning disabilities.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,respiratory-system — "In confirming the presence of peripheral airways dysfunction in nonsmokers with uncomplicated common colds, our data imply that the changes can be modified favorably by short-term aromatics inhalation."Link
2.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."Link
3.Associated topics: breathing-/-inhale,respiratory-system — "Cineole has mucolytic, bronchodilating and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces the exacerbation rate in patients suffering from COPD, as well as ameliorates symptoms in patients suffering from asthma and rhinosinusitis.... The effects of Cineole in the treatment of acute bronchitis were clearly measurable and could be proven after a treatment period of merely 4 days. This study corroborates the fact that Cineole actively and significantly reduces cough frequency after four days."Link
4.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "Foeniculum vulgare Mill, commonly called fennel, has been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments related to digestive, endocrine, reproductive, and respiratory systems. Additionally, it is also used as a galactagogue agent for lactating mothers.... Foeniculum vulgare has emerged as a good source of traditional medicine and it provides a noteworthy basis in pharmaceutical biology for the development/formulation of new drugs and future clinical uses."Link
5.Associated topics: respiratory-system — "The antibacterial activity of 14 essential oils and their major constituents in the gaseous state was evaluated against [respiratory tract pathogens] Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Streptococcus pyogenes, and Staphylococcus aureus. [The] oils [with cinnamon bark, lemongrass, and thyme being most potent] and their major constituents were shown to be effective against various bacteria tested.... These results indicate that the antibacterial action of essential oils was most effective when at high vapor concentration for a short time."Link
6.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "Beta-Caryophyllene [component of cannabis, clove, copaiba], a CB2 [cannabinoid] receptor agonist produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression in mice.... these preclinical results suggest that CB2 receptors may provide alternative therapeutic targets for the treatment of anxiety and depression. The possibility that BCP may ameliorate the symptoms of these mood disorders offers exciting prospects for future studies."Link
7.Associated topics: anger-/-frustration — "Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."Link
8.Associated topics: emotions-/-feelings — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
