Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made 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.
Whilst hanging out doing some washing, an ant got into my trainer and bit or stung me. The pain was intense for about 15 minutes but, as I was at my volunteer place of work, I had no essential oils with me at the time.
I soon got home and tried several oils on the sting to no avail. Then I remembered the LLP recipe I heard about. So I took 5 drops each of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint in an empty capsule. As expected, within 5 minutes the itch had stopped.
I took 2 more capsules the next day, morning and night which kept the itch away. The following day it didn’t itch at all so I didn’t take any, then obviously the next day it was really healing because it started up again badly. I took another capsule, 5 minutes later and the itch was gone again. I took 1 capsule each morning for the next 2 mornings and all is good now.
I will never leave home without the ability to make my LLP blend and capsules ever again.
