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.

For over two weeks, the skin on my forehead, chin and around my mouth got progressively worse. The skin became raised, very red, itchy and would start to burn. I believe the symptoms were similar to psoriasis or eczema, with which I have no history.

I'm pretty new to essential oils and have added more and more to my daily regimen. I've considered the possibility that my body is detoxing and my skin is aiding the process. That is probably a good thing, but I was miserable!

To find relief I tried using only natural products like coconut oil and olive oil and I applied oils that had worked well for me before: Lavender, Purification and Valor. Sometimes I would get brief relief, but overall my skin was horrible!

Finally I ordered Rose Ointment. I was so excited and very hopeful when it arrived. Upon the first application the itching and burning stopped. That was 3 days ago. The burning and itching are gone and the skin is no longer raised or red! Each day there is great improvement. I will always keep this ointment on hand and I am switching to all natural Young Living skin care!
