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 two year old grandson got into a pile of fire ants and ended up with about 15 bites on his ankles and legs. Needless to say, he was crying loudly. I rushed him into the house, rinsed his legs with water in the sink, and then applied Purification (neat) for the burning sting followed by Lavender (neat) for the swelling. And that was it!

I never heard another cry out of him or saw him scratch the bites once! He went back to playing, and after his nap, the angry red bites had almost disappeared.

Fire ant bites can swell up into a pimple and itch for days, but these oils are obviously too much for them. Thank God for putting these plants on the earth and for helping the Young Living team get them to us!
