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.

When my grandson complained about something itching on his lower leg one day, I took a close look and saw what looked like an insect bite. It was very red and had a white spot in the middle.

I decided it might be a spider bite from a brown-recluse spider. The lesion from a brown recluse spider bite is an irregular sinking patch with ragged edges and surrounding redness and maybe a white spot in the center, and that's what he had. Later the white spot became very dark.

I remember listening to one of the Young Living cassette tapes where Clint Walker describes how he used Basil to stop the skin eating venom from doing any more damage. It can become a deep wound that takes a long time to resolve.

I put some drops of Basil on the wound and covered it with a cloth bandage. We did this for just two days and it cleared up beautifully. Now he just has a very tiny indented spot on his leg where the bite was.

If you don't happen to have Young Living Basil in your house at the time you discover this type of bite, you can also use fresh Basil after making a poultice out of it and apply it to the wound and then cover with a some saran wrap and bandage tape.

In my mind, this just proves how wonderful nature and the plant kingdom is.
