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.

My husband is the biggest skeptic, but he has been listening to me rave about my experiences with these essential oils. When he came in from setting up the sprinkler, his legs were so itchy like they usually are after being outside in shorts because the bugs just love him.

He asked me if one of my essential oils would help. I told him that the Lavender essential oil would help. I asked him if he wanted me to put some on his legs where he was itching. He said yes.

So I dropped 2 drops onto one spot. Before I had even finished rubbing it in -- within 10 seconds -- he said, "Are you stinking kidding me?" He was watching a TV show, and I thought he had seen something interesting.

He then asked me to put some essential oil on his other spot, and then he would tell me how it was working. About 15 seconds later he said that the itch was gone. He was absolutely amazed.

Not only did Lavender essential oil work fast, but it worked better than anything else we have tried -- and it got rid of all of the itching, not just some of it. And the itch did not come back!

I love Young Living essential oils, and I think my husband is beginning to also!
