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.

I got married in August of 2012 and we went to Mexico the next day for a honeymoon. On the very last day of our trip I woke up that morning covered in hives all over my body. I took some Benadryl to calm the irritation and it only kept symptoms down for about 3 hours at a time. I would have to take more all day.

Over the next several months I went to four different doctors that ran over 20 tests on me to see what might be the cause, they could not find a single cause.

At this point the doctors had me on Zantac, Zyrtec and different depression medications thinking they would help. I took these for 3 and a half months and also tried everything else I could find that hopefully would calm my skin. It was always a short term solution to fix it all.

After having a party at a friend's home we sat and talked about the use of essential oils and how they could help. I started with just the forty dollar starter kit that came with Lavender, Peppermint and some NingXia Red juice. I found within the first use of the oils that they were great. I was able to finally fall asleep with the Lavender and it also worked when my face completely swelled for no reason.

I then used the Peppermint to keep my energy up. My friend and I then talked more about the Raindrop Technique and how great it was. So my friend said she would do one on me and for the first time I did not break out in hives for a total of 2 days.

I then purchased the kit to do the RT just on my feet to see if it would help and it was not only a short term solution, but also has lasted. I have not had a break out for about 3 weeks now and only do the sequence of oils about twice a week.

God is amazing and He puts people in your life to show you his natural resources instead of the man made chemicals that do more hurt than help.

I am very grateful that I was shown these oils.
