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.

All my life I have had problems with mosquitoes, they love me and my body reacts very strongly to them. My friends always joke that if there is a mosquito in the area it will find me.

I took my two young sons on a walk yesterday and rubbed all of our clothes, feet, arms, and hair down with Thieves once I started noticing a couple of mosquitoes close to us. When I rounded the corner at the end of my street I found myself in a SWARM of mosquitoes; there had to be a cloud of them flying around us.

I panicked, I was batting them away from my baby's head and running back towards the house. Once I reached safety I checked us all over and I had one bite, my boys were untouched. Before oils we would have been covered and drinking benadryl out of a bottle while sitting in a baking soda bath. I was so relieved I almost cried.

Also the one that got me was huge, it felt like a bee was stinging me when it bit. I put some Peace & Calming on it because I recently discovered that it works wonders on bites for me, and it never swelled up.

Words cannot express how awesome this is for me.
