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 had been using an "Eco" laundry soap, but saw a brand at Wal-Mart that was so much less expensive that I decided to try it. I had no problems for a couple of months. Then, suddenly, I was awakened in the middle of the night with terrible itching all over my stomach and sides. It was horrible! I was scratching madly, leaving huge welts all over my body. At first I thought it was caused by an infrared heating pad I was using. But I soon zeroed in on the laundry detergent.

Then my husband suggested the oils of Peppermint, Lavender and Peace & Calming. I changed to an old nightgown that had not been used for months, and some sheets from storage. It did not go away totally until the next evening, but I could sleep. Now I am re-washing everything I own in safe detergent. Blessing on oils!
