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.

Up here in the Rocky Mountains we are prone to have wood ticks seek us out. Saturday night our son-in-law came in with one that had buried its head into his arm. His wife grabbed a bottle of the Purification oil blend, put a drop on the tick and you should have seen the little fellow's legs working to pull himself out.

I think it only took about 5 seconds and the tick was out of his arm. Then she put another drop on the area where the wood tick had dug its hole. By the way the tick was dead within 1 minute after coming out. Don't leave home without your Purification!

Secret for unexpected experiences - ALWAYS be prepared with your bag of Young Living Essential Oils.

Several years ago we wrote on wood ticks too....

It's the deer hunting season in our area. Our son-in-law bagged a 3 point buck. Went over to check it this morning and it was covered with ticks. We put them in a bottle and put in 3 drops of Purification. They were all dead within one minute. That's what I suspected would happen, but as usual we had to see it.

Use your oils, not chemicals, pesticides or drugs.
