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.

Halloween morning, in 2011, I was stung by a wasp on my left middle finger. I immediately scraped the stinger out of my finger using the thumb nail of my right hand and then applied Purification and PanAway Blends on the sting site. These applications removed the pain almost immediately.

A bit later the finger started to swell and the swelling moved to my entire left hand--It was so swollen I could not make a fist. I decided to try Copiaba oil on my hand to reduce the swelling. I applied 2-3 drops on my hand at about 1PM that day. I repeated the process about every hour until trick-or-treat time (5PM). By the time we returned back to the house at 6:00 PM, the swelling was so reduced it was difficult to distinguish which hand received the wasp sting.

By the next morning, my left hand was completely back to it's pre-wasp sting health!! I LOVE Young Living Essential Oils!
