Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

Today my husband and I were within a couple driving hours from home after a long vacation when there was a wreck in front of us. He went to help and I jumped out of our car into the ditch to call 911. Within two minutes, my feet and lower legs felt as if they were on fire. I had obviously walked in grass or weeds that my body didn't like.

I had taken a limited supply of Young Living goodies with us and grabbed LavaDerm first, spraying my feet and legs a couple of times and letting the air conditioning blow on my legs. The stinging got worse so I rubbed on Purification -- that always takes away the sting, swelling and itching from nasty Texas fire ant bites. The stinging eased a bit but welts started popping out on my feet, ankles and lower legs.

I then grabbed Thieves mouthwash, a cosmetic sponge and washed down my legs and feet and sandals. I then applied Dentarome Plus toothpaste to the welts. First the intense burning sensation stopped and within an hour, the welts were gone, too.
