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 use Purification all the time for any insect bite. I've used it on spider bites, mosquito bites, unknown bug bites and ant bites. It stops the sting, reduces the swelling within minutes and stops the itch.

I also used it on a wasp sting that my husband received on the back of his knee. It was already starting to swell and hurt a lot. Within 10 to 15 minutes the swelling was gone and the pain had reduced considerably. By the next day all that remained was a small red dot.

Down here in Texas fire ants are a continuous problem. Purification does wonders in reducing the pain and swelling of fire ant bites.

I recently had very ugly, itchy, painful and swollen "bites" on the edge of my hand and little finger. I do not know if it was a bite or not and by what critter (I think it may have been a spider but I have no proof). I had never had such a reaction to any bite as this one, it was somewhat frightening. A mild touch felt like daggers, the "bite" areas were dark red and purple and my entire hand was swollen.

I put Purification on it several times a day and after about a week there was noticeable improvement. There was some immediate soothing of the pain. Eventually it all cleared up (took several weeks to go away). But I'm glad I had Purification on hand.

In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time.
