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 am 38 years young and have never had a shellfish allergy. I love my shellfish. I went out to lunch with my upline essential oil distributor, and he highly recommended the lobster bisque. I've never tried lobster bisque but decided to give it a try. It was delicious.

As the third chunk of seafood went to slide down my throat, it felt odd. It felt like it almost didn't fit, and as I swallowed I began to cough. I was kind of embarrassed by it. I tried to take a few bites of my salad, hoping the vinegar would help, and then sucked down my water with Lemon oil. My throat started to feel like it was closing.

Thank God I was with my upline because I knew my oils were not with me. I had left my oils in a different bag in my car. My husband had my car, and honestly I don't think I would have made it. I was trying to hide my issue until I started to panic and said, "Do you have any Lavender oil?"

He looked at his really nice set of oils and said, "Yes! I have lots of good ones." And I was like, "I just need the Lavender; my throat is closing." He handed me the Lavender and I opened up the bottle, rubbing a few drops on my throat, on my chest, behind my ears and on my wrists.

I was hesitant to pass it back because my thought was, "I may have to just drink this bottle in a second. This reaction is BAD! I can make a scene in front of my upline, or I could make a scene in front of the entire restaurant. I guess I will do it in front of my upline." It was my first time meeting him.

My throat within about 1 to 2 minutes started to relax, and I went from having to cough uncontrollably to having a less frequent cough... more of a nervous cough. I giggle because I'll bet my way of describing this story is quite a bit more dramatized than how he might describe it because I was trying so hard not to be dramatic, but my mind was screaming HELP! By the time we walked away from the table, my throat felt 90% better.

I later went with my kids shopping at the mall, but when I got home I slept a few hours and woke up with my throat closing again. This time I placed 2 drops of Lavender oil under my tongue and smothered myself with it. I applied it to my throat, chest, back of ears, and wrists. I felt less than 100% for a long time afterwards, but it never flared back up after that.

These oils work, especially during emergencies! They are simply amazing!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: cough — "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
2.Associated topics: food-poisoning — "14 plant essential oils -- anise (Pimpinella anisum), bay leaves (Laurus nobilis), cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum verum), clove (Eugenia caryophyllata), fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), hop (Humulus lupulus), Istanbul oregano (Origanum vulgare subsp. hirtum), Izmir oregano (Origanum onites), mint (Mentha piperita), myrtus (Myrtus communis), orange peel (Citrus sinensis), sage (Salvia officinalis), thyme (Thymbra spicata), and Turkish oregano (Origanum minutiflorum) -- were related to inhibition of 10 bacteria (Listeria innocua, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Typhimurium, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Klebsiella oxytoca)."Link
3.Associated topics: throat — "Streptococcus pyogenes [strep] plays an important role in the pathogenesis of tonsillitis.... [T]hyme, cinnamon, lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, oregano, clove, palmarosa, or cajeput [melaleuca] EOs [essential oils] are known to be active against Streptococcus pyogenes, while oregano, basil, mint [peppermint], rosemary, and lavender EOs are known to inhibit another Gram-positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus [staph].... We showed that cinnamon presented the higher activity against S. pyogenes compared to the other EOs tested.... 14 [essential oils] showed antibacterial activity against Streptococcus pyogenes.... Among them Cinnamomum verum [cinnamon bark], Cymbopogon citratus [Xiang Mao], Thymus vulgaris CT thymol [thyme], Origanum compactum [oregano], and Satureja montana [Mountain Savory] essential oils exhibited significant antibacterial activity. The in vitro results reported here suggest that, for patients suffering from bacterial throat infections, if aromatherapy is used, these essential oils, considered as potential antimicrobial agents, should be preferred."Link
4.Associated topics: food-poisoning — "Lavender essential oil displays the stronger antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation in a linoleic acid model system and good antibacterial activity against four rhinitis-related bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus ascoformans, Proteus vulgaris, and Escherichia coli."Link
