Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

For the past 12 years I have done everything in my power to avoid Cinnamon and all products/food that contains it. This was exasperated when it began happening with air-fresheners and candles containing Cinnamon. When I am around it for more than a minute or two, my throat and face begin to swell, leading to a full anaphylactic reaction.

I had begun thinking that I was not allergic anymore when I went to school and they had Cinnamon rolls as dessert. I began feeling an allergic (anaphylactic) reaction coming on. In fact I had a reaction. I was so grateful to have the oils to help me to overcome it. All I had at the time was an oil blend I had made, containing Frankincense, Copaiba, Peppermint, and a few others that I've been successfully using for my shoulder pain. It helped to keep the reaction down until I got home.

Once I was home I stopped and reversed the reaction using a drop of Lavender and a drop of Frankincense under my tongue. I did this several times an hour for the next three hours. It was the shortest time it took me to overcome a reaction and the only time that I did not have an entire day of misery!
