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.

A few months ago I developed eczema all over my body. It was very itchy and burning. The dematologist prescribed cortisone cream. I did not want to use this becasue it thins the skin. Health food store creams were expensive; I needed a whole load for my entire body!

I added 30 drops of Lavender essential oil and 10 drops of Lemon essential oil to 1/2 pound of warm coconut oil and mixed it well. This soothed my skin, and my skin started to get better. I of course did other things as well... reduced stress, did a colon cleanse, etc. But my skin seemed to magically improve with this Lavender and Lemon essential oil mixture.
