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 husband had poison ivy really bad on much of his body, the worst being his forearms and legs. He went to the doctor because his face had started to swell, and he received three prescriptions.

I asked my husband if I could have one arm to show him the difference the essential oils could make. After a couple of days of using the prescription cream, he reluctantly "gave me an arm"!

I generously applied the Thieves essential oil blend and then Peppermint essential oil topically, finally wrapping his arm with a wet hand towel. Because oil and water do not mix, the oils went into his body much more quickly. Within less than two days we could see a difference in his arm.

Needless to say, I got the other arm and both legs! My husband is a believer and loves to share his story.
