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 was talking with a friend who lives 5 states away from me, and she told me she contracted poison ivy from working in her back yard. Her skin was itchy and painful and she was using some usual prescribed remedy, but it wasn't working very well.

That same day, I decided to send her some Peppermint oil which reached her in 2-3 days. She began using the oil, rubbing a few drops directly on the spots about 3-4 times per day, and within minutes the pain and itching were going away!

Within a couple of days, the spots dried up and her skin was back to normal. She was SO HAPPY to have been able to get rid of the poison ivy faster than she thought!
