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.

The morning after I had done some gardening work I experienced an intense itch in the groin area - one of those hard to reach spots. Closer examination confirmed that it was a completely imbedded deer tick. I could feel a slight panic rising! Another Young Living friend had just shared how valuable Peppermint had been for removing deer ticks on her dog, so I decided to give that a try.

First I applied the Peppermint oil until enough of the head came out to grab with tweezers. By now it became a team effort and we attempted to remove the tick. However, we didn't feel we got the whole thing. I continued to apply Peppermint oil the next few days as it continued to be very itchy. Finally, I inspected it again and determined that the rest of the tick had surfaced and we were able to remove it all with one pluck. The oil had continued to work over the days I applied it to the spot and pushed what was left of the tick out. I felt immediate relief - both physical and emotional and had no more itching on that spot. What a versatile oil!
