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.

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

She put Purification oil straight on the rash (topically) 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. I use a flat wooden skewer, i.e. chop stick, toothpick or popcycle stick, to mix it.) 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.
