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.

I was bitten by what I believe to be a brown recluse, although I did not see it. The bite had a blister on it for a few days before my foot began to swell and become painful and feverish. By that time about 5 days had passed before I realized I was in big trouble.

On the worst day, I alternated applying several different oils every couple of hours with no relief. I could not get a shoe on my foot that day. That night before going to bed I had a lot of pain and I applied PanAway.

By the next morning the swelling had gone down by about half and the hot/sore feeling in the foot had all but disappeared. I kept using PanAway several times a day for a few more days. After about a week and a half I was left with nothing but a large scab which took about another week to heal. Nothing left after three weeks but healthy pink skin.
