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 started using Lavender when my boys got the chicken pox, (they wanted me to get the shots but I held out till they got them), anyway we were planning a trip and I didn't want my kids to be covered in scabs so, I would put them in a tub with baking soda, and Lavender, about 8 drops per tub and told them to soak in it, well instead of the usual 21 days, they were done and healed (no scabs or marks) in 2 weeks, vacations plans were a go!!

My son uses Lavender for his acne. Also, I didn't know this was a use (grin) but it seems my youngest son used Lavender because his testicles were itching. Instead of powder, this time he reached for the Lavender, tried a little and it didn't burn. He was still itching so he applied some more, not sure how much he used but he said it helped (grin).

Also before I left for convention my older son burned his hand pretty good by slopping hot tomato sauce all over it. Well we poured Lavender on it and the next day there was only one mark, (I missed it when I put the Lavender on) I love oils!
