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 started using Lavender essential oil as my deodorant three months ago. I only rubbed in a couple of drops for each armpit.

I got a rash with itching and oozing a few days later. At first I thought that I was allergic to the Lavender oil, but I ruled that out since I use it on cuts and burns without a problem. I came to the conclusion that the Lavender essential oil was pulling the toxins out of my lymph nodes under my armpits.

I continued to use the Lavender oil daily, and eventually the rash and itching went away. I still use it daily and have not had any more problems with the rash and itching.
