Some have read my testimony about my first experience with Lavender. My son obtained 2nd and 3rd degree burns the day after I recieved my first shipment of oils. His burns totally healed with no scarring in a complete week. I doused him with Lavender for the intent of keeping him calm on the way to the hospital. Before my very eyes his burns changed from purple to red and then to pink. We didn't ever make the trip to the hospital. Lavender is a favorite of mine since.

This summer we were infested with bees and hornets. Thousands in our community resulting in at least 2 deaths that I remember. I do not know a person who wasn't stung this summer. Each of my four kids were stung several times. On Labor day just when we were thinking we were done with the bees our son (same burn patient) stepped on a ground hive. Resulting in 25 stings not counting any in his hair. His head being the most swormed area of his body. I used a drop of Purification and then Lavender on each sting to calm him down. Repeating this process on stings that still were too intense for him to deal with.

He went to bed because that is how he deals with pain. Because I had given him so much oil I kept an eye on him. My husband and I didn't think allergy he had been stung 6 times this summer. It took 20 minutes for him to develop shock. He was hospitalized. The ambulance gave him a benadryl shot and the Emergency Room gave him an oral med (sorry I don't remember the name) with the intent of giving him more in a few hours. In 3 hours we were on our way home with a slight sign of a rash.

Important information for anyone with children. A sting allergy such as his is developed with each sting. I only takes 6 stings before the age of 10 years for children to develop a life threating allergy! Obviously he was bound to develop an allergy, in one summer he had been stung over 30 times. His allergy Dr. asked for information on the oils. I believe without a doubt my oils saved his life.

However in January he is supposed to begin allergy shots for white faced hornets to reduce his chance of death if he is stung again. So basically it is allergy shots once a month for life or never going outside again. I would love knowlege on at least reducing these shots or avoiding them all together! Please e-mail me if you can further my knowlege in this area.
