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 get poison ivy nearly every summer so severely that I end up going to the doctor. Treatment is always steroids; sometimes just 10 days of pills other times a shot as well. My skin is raw and painful and usually looks like a burn. I do not have to touch anything to get it, which means it is airborne and I get it on all exposed skin. It takes several weeks for it to disappear completely even with aggressive treatment.

Last summer, after being introduced to essential oils, instead of the usual treatment, I tried applying Lavender oil. It offered relief for an hour or so but I had to reapply it frequently. It would look and feel better for only about an hour.

Frustrated and in great pain, I tried applying a few drops of Rose oil. It was like magic! The pain and itching left immediately! Even more surprising, the appearance was nearly back to normal.

The next morning it was much better but a bit uncomfortable so I applied a few more drops of Rose oil. All irritation and pain was gone. By the next day you could barely see where the poison ivy had been.
