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've been using Young Living products for just over a year now. I have many testimonials of my own. I'm sharing one of them today...

My boyfriend contracted poison oak or ivy, not sure which one it was, but he has several irritating blisters on his arm and it spread to his legs.

In the past he would go get steroids because nothing he tried would help. I asked him to try the Purification oil blend, so he applied a few drops twice a day for 3 days and the irritation calmed down.

We have been having some extreme heat and humid conditions for 6 days in a row. The blisters got worse and started spreading. He was ready to go to doctors for steroids.

I made a spray of Lavender and Peppermint oils, distilled water and aloe vera for me when it gets hot when I'm landscaping, so I tried it on him also. I sprayed this on him and he immediately felt relief. Three days later the blisters are dry and almost cleared up.

Thank goodness for Young Living's high quality essential oil products!
