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 sweet middle child was born 6 weeks early with a slight infection and was put on antibiotics straight out of the womb in the NICU.

Then not a month after he was out of the hospital he started getting ear infections. We had tubes put in his ears at 12 months and still had 6 infections after that! So he was put on antibiotic after antibiotic until he was about 15 months old.

There have not been any more since, thank God! But the effects of the antibiotics have caused his body to be very allergic to certain things and he has eczema. Every time he is just a little bit sick, it flares up. The sicker he is, the worse and more itchy it gets.

So I started making our own creams to get him off those harsher alternatives. I have one for everyday use that contains a few drops of Lavender oil. I have another one that has Lavender and the Melrose oil blend for flare ups. Sometimes I add Rose Ointment on top of the Lavender and Melrose cream when his eczema is really extreme.

Thank God for essential oils that are pure and high quality! They have kept us from putting steroid creams on him all the time.

6.Associated topics: allergic-reaction — "[T]he biological activity of 20 essential oils (EOs) from herbal plants and citrus fruits were investigated in terms of mammalian DNA polymerase (pol) inhibitory activity, cancer cell (human colon carcinoma) growth inhibitory activity, antiallergic activity... in rat basophilic leukemia cells, and antioxidant activity.... 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
7.Associated topics: eczema-/-dermatitis — "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
