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.


My daughter is very allergic to poison ivy. She gets a very rapidly spreading rash with extreme itching and swelling. We had tried all over the counter meds and did not want to resort to a steroid shot when I remembered to check my essential oils reference book.

She put the Purification oil blend, neat, on the rash with almost instant relief from the itching. Then I mixed the Animal Scents ointment with Lavender and Purification to ease the swelling. I put about one tablespoon in a small container with 5 drops each of Lavender and Purification.

Later she put this on before bed and wrapped gauze around it to keep the oil from soiling the bedclothes. This process worked great and much faster than any other method we have tried.

It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
