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.

My 6-year-old son has been suffering from severe eczema on one foot. Before using Young Living essential oils, we would use hydrocortisone cream and Vaseline over it... until I realized just how bad these products are for us! Even after using these products for maintenance, the eczema would flare up, and we would have to use a two-week round of steroid ointment just to get my son's skin a little better.

Since I ordered my Premium Starter Kit a week after Thanksgiving, I have been applying Lavender essential oil and then applying Animal Scents Ointment over the Lavender oil. My son's skin now looks like normal skin, and we have not had to use any other products since. It will be only Young Living essential oils from now on for my baby boy!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."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
2."[T]ea tree oil seems to be a more effective anti-eczematic agent than zinc oxide and clobetasone butyrate...."Link
3."[T]opical fatty acids and essential oils are a useful treatment option for canine atopic dermatitis."Link
4."Eyelid scrubs or massage with tea tree oil could be an effective treatment regimen in cases of blepharoconjunctivitis [and Demodex mite infestation]."Link
5."It is suggested that the in vivo effect of tea tree oil ointment in the therapy of fungal infections of the skin and mucous membranes as well as in the treatment of dandruff, a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis, may be at least partly due to an antifungal activity of tea tree oil."Link
