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(5) was playing rough with my grandson and he fell hand first on a very spiny cactus. His hand was so covered I called the emergency room to see if they had some "magic" way to get the hundreds of spines out of his hand. No they didn't, so I continued plucking with tweezers, eventually aided further by a giant magnifying glass. I knew there must be an oil that could at least deaden the pain a bit and immediately Thieves came to mind.

I dumped several drops of Thieves (neat) on his hand as I was pulling the tiny splinters out. I had a hard time to see the smaller ones so I put him in a warm bath. His hand was still full of cactus when he went into the tub, and I was thinking how much my little boy was going to suffer if I didn't get them all out. He got out of the tub instinctively favoring his hand, but he realized quickly that the cactus spines were gone!! The GREAT news is he stopped complaining of pain the instant I put Thieves on his hand.

Thank God I had the "MAGIC" to help my child. Another example of how we have at our disposal, all we need with these incredible oils. They help us in every day situations in which we normally would have suffered (needlessly) without. I love my oils and use them for everything I can think of. Young Living has made all the difference in our lives and our family will continue to reap the benefits of using their products. Here is to an oil filled day for us!!
