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 son is only 2 1/2 and has had issues with allergy induced asthma. When allergies kick in, he get very wheezy, has a tight chest and labored breathing.

As a baby, we made several trips to the emergency room because his breathing was so labored. We would end up using albuterol in a breathing treatment several times a day for 3-5 days. His attacks would last for 5-7 days total, with several of those days completely sacked out on the couch, breathing treatments every 3-4 hours, and coughing.

My sister told me that for her allergies she uses the Purification oil blend in a diffuser and that just took them right away.

I purchased my diffuser and don't know how I would live without it! Diffusing Purification throughout the day took away almost all allergy symptoms not only for my son, but for me and my husband as well.

I also got RC and would mix several drops with a few drops of Purification in olive oil and rub it on his chest, along with diffusing a mixture of RC and Purification at night in his room. At first I only did it when I saw symptoms of an asthma attack. His attack would only last for 1-3 days with only 1 day of breathing treatments.

Diffusing Purification daily and applying both blends to his chest has made such a difference. We went over 3 months before he had another asthma attack and it only came back this spring when I ran out of my oils. I now make sure that I always have a supply on hand.

Now I rub his chest nightly with RC and Purification in olive oil. He loves it! With prayer and these oils, my hope is that one day he never has asthma or allergies again!
