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.

I broke out in a rash on my chest and on the side of my lower abdomen. I don't really know what caused it and was against going to the doctor.

There was a big welt on my side and both areas itched so bad that I just wanted to scratch all the time. I know the scratching was making them worse and they were red and inflamed.

I first started using Lavender oil and that did help some with the itching, but it would come back. I read in the essential oils reference book about Spikenard oil and decided to try it. Well, that did it! After applying several drops on the afflicted areas, the itch stopped immediately and now both areas are almost gone.

These oils are wonderful.
