I am 38 years young and have NEVER had a shellfish allergy. I love my shellfish. I went out to lunch with an upline distributor, and he highly recommended the lobster bisque. I've never tried lobster bisque but decided to give it a try. It was AWESOME!
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. And 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?!"
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 hears, 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 under my tongue and smothered myself in some more Lavender. I did 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! They are amazing!
