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.

A few months ago our grandson had the worst reaction to poison ivy that I have ever seen. I did not see him right away, and, by the time I did, his body had overdone sending histamines to the site. His face was swollen almost beyond recognition!

First we tried Young Living Lavender essential oil, but it seemed to bring out more blistering and redness. Thankfully, we still had some Young Living LavaDerm Cooling Mist left!

It stunned me to see my grandson's poor little swollen, drooping face firm up very quickly and to see the skin starting to improve immediately. The LavaDerm Cooling Mist calmed his body's overreaction to the invasive poison and supported his ability to clear the substance from his skin.

This is our protocol:

We sprayed my grandson's face with 2 sprays of LavaDerm Cooling Mist, 3 times a day, for 2 days; then after that we did it once or twice a day for 4 days.
