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.

Buyer beware.

I am going to try to keep this as short as possible, but I am gonna have to blog about this soon! We BEAT the chicken pox in four days while using Young Living essential oils! Praise the Lord!

When chicken pox starts going around the elementary school in vaccinated children, most moms panic. As a mother of three (unvaccinated), armed with oils, I was as calm as a cucumber, they might say.

Six days before my 6-year-old developed her first blisters, I first heard about this little epidemic at school. I upped our preventative regimen of 1 drop of Thieves (on the bottom of the feet at night) to 2 drops two times a day and continued to play the waiting game.

In the meantime, I studied up using my Pocket Reference book and online testimonials about what essential oils work to not only soothe itching but possibly even ward off this nasty virus. I was prepared to try Oregano, Thieves, Melaleuca Alternifolia, Lavender, and Lemon.

My daughter came home from school last Wednesday and had five blisters on her left shoulder/neck. I immediately reached for my essential oils, Oregano being first. I dabbed the pox with a cotton swab soaked in a drop or two of Oregano... oops! Mama then reached for the Lavender... more dabbing... then a smearing of coconut oil. I probably should have done that in reverse, but she lived.

I actually took before and after photos (what oil sista doesn't!?), and the difference is insanely amazing! This stirred up lots of interest via Facebook feed for sure!

Anyhoo, after that initial hot dabbing, I blended a small bottle of Oregano, Thieves, Lemon, Lavender, and Melaleuca Alternifolia -- 3 drops each -- and about 15 drops of coconut oil. I used this blend two to three times per day, applying along her spine, the bottom of her feet, and on each pox.

By the end of Day 2, she had about 10 more pox show up. We continued our regimen religiously. Well, by the end of day 3, the first few pox were scabbing over.

All the while, baby girl was her normal, rambunctious self, without even a minor case of the "feel bads". And there was NO ITCHING after just one application of my chicken pox oil blend. Seriously, AMAZING! The kid only had about 15 pox, period. And they didn't itch!? That's unheard of. That's only because they ain't heard enough about Young Living essential oils! Hee hee.

Well, by day 4, all pox were scabbed, and baby girl was ready to go back to school after only missing 2 days! She came home "poxy" on a Wednesday evening and was scabbed over by Sunday.

Disclaimer: These essential oils did not "cure" or "prevent" chicken pox, but they sure made my baby girl more comfortable.

We are thankful for "God's Medicine". And ya know what? My little home treatment using YLEO's cost less than half what a single doctor visit would have cost. Woot Woot!
