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 son got bit by a bug when he was six months old. It got so large that it consumed almost half of his shin. It was red and hot to the touch. We were on vacation in Florida at the time.

Using a pen, I put a circle around the red bite so that I could easily determine if it was getting bigger or smaller. I used RC undiluted because it isn't a hot oil like Thieves. I applied it once every hour (not including the night hours). By the next day, it was dramatically smaller.

I also recommend using your mother's intuition about which oils to use in addition to RC. Is it painful? Maybe you could use Peppermint. Does the baby look distressed? Maybe use some Lavender or Peace & Calming.
