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 son is 8 years old with lots of sensory concerns. He also has very sensitive, dry, itchy skin that he will scratch until it bleeds.

I have tried so many different over-the-counter and prescription creams. Unfortunately he hates putting any of them on. He will scream and fuss and try to wipe them off.

I recently tried adding one drop of Peppermint essential oil to a squirt of lotion, rubbing it together in my hands and then rubbing him with the mixture.

He said that he liked it, and so I did it again. I also tried it on myself.

The itching went away almost immediately. After a few nights of applying Peppermint oil with lotion, his skin looks fantastic. He loves it and will ask for it after every bath.

I have used lots of this company's products, and I love them all. But this one was so easy with immediate results, so I wanted to share!
