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.

I am compelled to share the most amazing testimonial I have. Wednesday night around 8 PM I noticed that my 6-year-old's eye was really red and had a bunch of nasty stuff around it (pink eye, red eye, conjunctivitis, or Madras eye).

I immediately cleaned the area around his eye, grabbed the Lavender essential oil, and applied it on the bone around his eye. I also diffused Melaleuca Alternifolia and Lavender oils practically all night in the diffuser (he calls it the confuser) in his bedroom.

My son woke up around 4:00 on Christmas morning with his eye swollen shut and completely caked over. This was the worst that it become.

All I could think was that it was Christmas Day and the doctor's office was closed. Urgent care (emergency room) would be too much money and ultimately unnecessary. By the time I would get him into the doctor's office and get antibiotics in him, almost two full days would have gone by anyway. And on a side note, I researched and discovered that this nastiness can last days, weeks... even up to a month!

My faith was put in the Lord as I prayed for my son's eye to become better, and it was also a test of my faith in these essential oils to see if they would work. Throughout Christmas Day we applied Lavender oil and also had my son take a bath with epsom salts and Lavender. Again last night we diffused Melaleuca Alternifolia and Lavender.

My son woke up this morning with his eye looking 95% better. Now at 4:30 pm -- less than 48 hours from the onset -- it is 100% gone.

I am so grateful to avoid a trip to the doctor and many days of misery for my son. And I love the fact that, since I use essential oils on him often, he had no problem trusting me to put oils around his eye to alleviate his symptoms. He trusted me and the Lord that he would feel better.
