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.

I have always had allergic reactions to horsefly bites. Once I had been bitten on the hand and within 1 hour my hand and fingers swelled up so bad that I couldn't bend my fingers enough to pick up a glass of water.

Recently, I was bitten again by a horsefly on the back of my leg. My leg began to swell almost immediately. I ran home and applied 2 drops of Purification oil directly on the bite. The swelling continued so after 30 minutes I applied 2 more drops on the bite. To my amazement...the swelling began to subside within minutes. Within an hour the swelling, redness and heat completely disappeared leaving behind only the puncture wound.
