One summer afternoon, my children and I were enjoying the weather in our backyard. I noticed my 3 year old playing with a bug or something from afar. All of a sudden, he jumped and screamed.

I couldn't see what it was, so I went over and asked him some questions. This is difficult in a 3 year old! He insisted it was not a bee, so I looked up a picture of a hornet on the Internet and asked him if that was what 'bit' him. He seemed to indicate 'yes'.

I immediately put on some Purification, and then rubbed in some Rose Ointment. I then had to put his 2 younger sibling down for a nap. Fifteen minutes later, I got back to him and noticed that his sting had swollen QUITE a bit and looked painful. I realized that I should not have put on Rose Ointment, since it locks in the oil and what I needed Purification to do in this case was DRAW OUT the venom.

I washed off his finger, and then reapplied Purification. I also used an icepack for a little bit, because the swelling was so extreme. The bite was on the joint of his pinky finger. We sat on the couch and read a book for 15 minutes, and every 2 minutes I put a couple more drops on. Then it was time for his nap.

When he awoke 1.5 hours later, there was NO SIGN of the bite. I asked if it hurt, and he said no, and then -- not believing him -- I rubbed my finger across where the bite had been, and he shown no signs of pain. Amazing!
