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 lived in an area thick with paralysis tick, in the bush and even on the lawn where I enjoyed doing my stretch sets with my cat. The first paralysis tick reacted badly with me. It had attached behind the top of my ear. My ear swelled into a giant red thing the size of my palm, hard and extremely painful. The reaction and the poison of the tick were tracking down my neck. Antibiotics were slow to work and it had been a painful experience that took nearly three weeks to resolve.

The next time a paralysis tick was found on me, it turned into a large red and painful swelling quite quickly. This time, I had Young Living Essential Oils, and placed several drops of Purification on. Purification is an oil blend that I understand was designed to purify and neutralise bites and stings. 'Poison' of the tick bite was neutralised and it soothed the pain! A drop was placed each time the pain returned, which was about each ten minutes for the first half an hour and then less often for the first day.

Within just a couple of days, it was all gone. So much better than my first experience. Both my cat and I benefited from the use of Purification oil on paralysis tick bites many more times, before we left that area. Cat did not like the oil, but it saved his life, without the expensive vet bills that I had had with the first time he was bitten by a paralysis tick, where he was hospitalised and touch and go whether he would survive.
