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 live in AZ, which is a very hot place to live. My girls both have eczema. It covers parts of their face, body and especially on the outside of the nose. Some people look at it as acne, when in fact, it may be eczema. I made a solution in a 2 ounce bottle to be applied twice a day.

* 2 drops Frankincense
* 1 drop Lavender
* 2 drops of the Australian Blue oil blend
* 1 drop Peppermint
* 2 ounces of V-6 Massage Oil or Olive Oil

This really helped clear up the eczema on the nose, as well the patches on their body. Since we are very sensitive to the oils we don't need very much. The oils may be doubled if it isn't strong enough for you.

I have posted the before and after pictures of the eczema on the nose. I have also used the below mix on sunburns, instead of oil I use distilled water.

* 2 drops Frankincense
* 1 drop Lavender
* 2 drops of the Australian Blue oil blend
* 1 drop Peppermint
* 2 ounces distilled water

I put it in a spray bottle. When I spray it, it's a very fine mist. For the face, cover the eyes with a wash cloth, lightly spray. Spray over the affected areas of the body. If you have a non-carpeted floor, put a towel down first for floor protection.

Depending how severe a burn is , spray every 15 minutes for up to two hours. Spray again before bedtime.

My youngest daughter is a very fair-skinned, red-haired blue-eyed adventurous little girl. She turns red very easily. When we apply the spray mist like I explained above, she wakes up with all redness gone and no burn.

I only use Young Living therapeutic grade essential oils as I value the unadulterated and non-toxic properties of the oils.
