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.

For the past 6 months I have been battling a rash that has covered my entire body, minus my face. I have been on countless pills, creams, steroids, and special body washes. Nothing has worked, and nothing has eased the itching or the discomfort.

In the past month I have given up trying all these ineffective remedies and have turned to my essential oils (now that I have gotten new bottles of oils that I was out of). I at first tried Lavender essential oil, but it would only work to keep the itching at bay for a few minutes. When my Melrose essential oil blend arrived in the mail, I decided to try that. That too also helped but for a few moments.

Then it dawned on me to combine the two. So after my showers (I have been taking at least two a day, as it helps with the itching) I would rub Lavender all over my body and then follow it with Melrose. In the evening before bed, I would reverse it (Melrose first and then Lavender) so that I could sleep through the itchiness.

For the first time in months I am finally starting to get long-term relief, and the patches are clearing up.

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
