If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants.

Buyer beware.

So excited to share a recent testimonial about my son! He is 6 and suffers from asthma and many allergies. One of his big culprits is pet dander. He almost always has a reaction when he is at anyone's house that has indoor cats/dogs.

A few days ago he was at my father in laws house and loves playing with his little dog. After leaving the house he started rubbing his eyes and within a few minutes they began to swell and become red and he developed a small hive like rash around his eyes. He was miserable and just wanted to sit on my lap.

Usually in the past I would give him Benadryl to treat his symptoms. This time I decided to try our wonderful oils! I had him wash his face and hands. I then took out my Lavender oil and had him put some inside each nostril then on his hands and he rubbed them on his face and breathed the oils in.

Within 10 minutes his eyes were no longer itching, within about 20 minutes the swelling and rash were totally gone and he was down playing like nothing had happened!

Tonight he went to my mom's house who also has a dog and normally just being in her house for a few hours he is starting to cough and have allergy symptoms, we decided to pre-treat and put Lavender on him again and guess what, when we picked him up, NO symptoms like he usually has!

I am so excited to have a healthy alternative to treat his allergies!!
