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 have mild eczema, which is usually kept in check by avoiding dairy foods. My willpower, however, ebbs and flows. So after indulging in cheese or yogurt, I develop flat, itchy, red/pink rashes in my armpits. Furiously scratching my armpits makes me feel like a monkey and in social settings, is difficult to camouflage!

Over the years, I've applied Frankincense or Lavender--both neat and diluted--to these patches, but neither worked as well as this treatment: two or three drops of Melrose oil mixed with a dime-sized dollop of high-quality aloe vera gel. This combination, along with wearing loose-fitting, 100% cotton clothing, helps to soothe and calm my symptoms.
