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 husband got poison ivy on his hand last week. I put Lemongrass on it, then we put Peppermint on for the itching.

He did this two times a day. On day two it blistered up like what would normally happen, but the blisters did not break open, instead they dried up.

He said it did not even itch any more so he stopped with the Peppermint. This did not even take a week for it to clear up. When he gets poison ivy he usually has it for a long time (over two weeks).

So he is a happy camper now.
