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 now use Young Living Peppermint essential oil and enjoy a drop or two in my stainless steel water bottle. But this weekend I saw amazing results! My sister had gotten a few insect bites on her left hand so I had her massage two drops of the Peppermint oil onto the affected area. Once treated the itching stopped and the swelling disappeared.

Later that evening she got several bites on her right hand but unfortunately I had left. When I returned the next morning she was crying ... her left hand was so swollen and the burning and itching were unbearable. We applied 2 drops to that hand every few hours. She had instant relief after the first application. By that evening the swelling and itching were gone.
