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.

My husband stores chlorine tablets for our pool in a sealed bucket under the deck. Last week he opened it and was enveloped in a cloud of chlorine gas. Somehow water had gotten into the bucket! The bucket was hot. If my husband had not opened it then, it might have exploded after more time had passed.

The radishes in a garden bed downwind of the gas cloud withered within minutes. My husband's throat and eyes were burning, his lungs felt constricted, and he was coughing violently.

I quickly grabbed a bottle of Lavender essential oil and dripped several drops into my husband's palms. Next I instructed him to rub his hands together, cup them, and then inhale the vapor. Within minutes he stopped coughing, and he was comfortable just a short time later.
