Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I felt a shock through my whole body and quickly realized that I had been stung on my leg by a wasp. The area around the site of the sting turned red immediately and started to swell a bit, not to mention that it was painful!

After quickly checking testimonials on, I layered these four essential oils over the red area:

First I used Purification essential oil blend to help take the sting and itch out of the bite. After a minute or two, I added Lavender essential oil to help soothe my skin. After another minute or so, I added a drop of Thieves essential oil blend to keep the area clean. And finally I added a drop of PanAway, since it still hurt.

I waited perhaps 5 minutes before applying the same essential oils again. After 3 applications, I was amazed to see that the redness and swelling were completely gone, and the pain of the sting had subsided as well.

The area started to feel itchy again only on the following day, so I used Purification and Lavender to soothe the skin. After periodic itchiness over the next couple of days, the incident was history.

In the past I have suffered for weeks after a bee or wasp sting, with the skin staying itchy and the area becoming hot, swollen, and painful. I think that the support from these essential oils is simply amazing, and they do not irritate my very sensitive skin.
