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 three-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter has suffered from eczema since birth. She would break out with this rash every time she would eat certain foods and juices. She is very sensitive to certain shampoos, body washes, and clothing; she is even sensitive to playing outside in the grass.

My daughter started applying the prescription creams and over-the-counter creams that the doctors recommended for my granddaughter. The creams did not always work, and when they did work, they were only a temporary fix.

I went to a Young Living meeting and heard about the essential oils. I heard that Lavender and the Purification oil blend were good for eczema. I already had these essential oils, so I mixed a few drops of Lavender and Purification together, diluted with some organic coconut oil. I then rubbed the oil mixture on the back of my granddaughter's left leg. To my amazement the eczema was completely gone in a few days!

A couple days later I noticed that my granddaughter had eczema on her right arm, so again I used the same essential oil mixture that I had used on her left leg. This time the eczema did not clear up, so I mixed 2 drops of Lemon essential oil and doubled the amount of organic coconut oil as a carrier oil. In a few days I noticed that my granddaughter was no longer scratching her arm... and the eczema was gone!

If there happens to be a hint of the eczema returning, now I will only use Lemon essential oil diluted with coconut oil on my granddaughter since this mixture seems to work best.

Among these EOs, chamomile... showed significant effects on both cancer cell growth and mast cell degranulation. On the basis of these results, chamomile EO can be recommended as a potentially useful, bioactive candidate for therapeutic applications."Link
6.Associated topics: eczema — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
