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.

On Christmas night one of our visiting daughters was bitten by an unknown type of spider. The bite swelled to dinner plate size and it was very painful, hot, red, and hard. She couldn't walk easily and was limping. She saw the doctor and asked if he could lance the bite to drain it as it felt like there was something in it. He decided not to lance it; she did start on a strong antibiotic.

The next day we began to apply Thieves oil. In 20 minutes the pain had subsided enough that she could walk without a limp! The next day, the wound started to drain; she continued to apply the oil everyday several times. The oil continued to help the residue from the infection come to the surface and drain. She had a checkup when she got back home and the doctors said that she is healing very well.
