If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants.

Buyer beware.


i moved into a new place and i think they may have been dust mites of something like that, that made my skin really itchy.. I used Purification essential oil and rubbed that through my hair but also used the diffuser to diffuse in the home areas, as long as i used a little each day no more itchy skin or bites :)
