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 took my son to the doctor to diagnose what looked like a severe rash. The doctor said it was a good case of poison ivy, would take weeks to clear up, and roughly a week to quit itching.

So we put Lavender oil on it and, within two days of it starting to itch, it had dried up and crusted over. This was good or it can continue to spread.

On the 3rd day of treating the rash, we also started also spraying it with a mix of Lavender and Lemongrass oil and filtered water. (5 drops of each oil in a 4 oz spritzing glass bottle). Within 6 days from when the itching began, the skin was regenerating.

My son had tried taking only 2 pills of over the counter antihistamines which only helped with the itch, not resolve the rash. He noticed the best relief came from using the oils and prayer!
