Peppermint & Lavender Essential Oils
(Affiliate links are included in this testimony)
I had just finished serving lunch to my kiddos and was getting ready to get my lunch together. I was proud of the fact that even though we had run out of peanut butter I was able to make some nut butter from the mixed nuts I had in the pantry. 

As I stood there at the counter, I suddenly became aware of uneven and labored breathing coming from the direction of the table. I dropped what I was doing and rushed over to my daughter. Her face was becoming splotchy, and her breathing became more and more labored. I was in a panic. 

I quickly ran to get the vitality peppermint essential oil and stuck it on the tip of her tongue, all the while I was praying with fervor. She had never shown signs of being allergic to nuts, so this took me completely by surprise. I started packing everyone up in the car to head to the children's hospital. Praying ever so desperately. I was not a stranger to food allergies as I had experienced them myself. I also grabbed the lavender and rubbed some on her neck and over her heart before buckling her in her car seat.

5 minutes later we were on the way. Trying to adhere to the rules of the road while concerned for my daughter was no easy task. My lips were moving silently, and my own breathing was quickened by concern. By the time we were halfway to the hospital the red splotches had disappeared and her breathing was back to normal. I couldn't believe it! Pulling to the side of the road I took stock of my daughter's vitals. She was completely fine and back to normal. You would have never known what she had just been through.

God led me in each moment of that day and saved my daughter from the allergic reaction she had. Who would have thought she would be able to eat all nuts after that!
