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.

In June of 2008 we were mowing weeds with a special bush mower. Some parts of our property have much poison ivy and every year my wife and children get poison ivy.

This year, after exposure, they immediately washed with Thieves Household Cleaner. I was stubborn and did not do it until later that night. My wife only had a very small patchy rash of poison ivy on the wrist. I had it all over my feet and legs. Applying Peppermint oil and regular washings with Thieves Household Cleaner stopped my wife's discomfort and her poison ivy did not bother her.

Within three days the visible part of poison ivy went away. However, I would generally itch within four to six hours until more Peppermint oil was applied. Finally after two or three weeks, the itch went away.

Next time I will immediately wash my body with Thieves Household Cleaner after being around poison ivy.
