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 have been using essential oils since 1999, with many amazing testimonials to share. This one is, by far, the most exciting.

My family and I are traveling across country in an RV. I have twins, which are 2.5 years old. We are visiting an older daughter, and granddaughter in Alabama. She recently has had a battle with a brown recluse spider in her home, catching at least 12 in traps in the past 2 weeks. I spent an evening teaching a class on bugs and oils.

The next morning my two year old crawled in bed saying she had a bubble on her foot. Her third toe was horridly blistered, and the skin around was cracked and peeling. I applied the Purification oil blend every few minutes for several hours, and I continued to watch the toe.

The blisters spread to the forth and little toe. The middle toe was now quite swollen and looked a bit infected. Everyone around got quite nervous, and I kept my confidence up about my amazing oils. My husband could no longer stand it, and took her to urgent care to be checked. They had no idea what it was, but wanted to put her on Keflex and Benadryl. We chose to skip that, and continued with Purification oil, applying at least once an hour.

I am happy to report that today, 24 hours after being at urgent care, the fourth and fifth toes are better, the redness on the middle toe has lessened, and the blisters are smaller. We did photograph this because we learned nothing goes with a testimonial like a couple of photos.

I expect a full recovery in a day or two.
