Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

Recently my daughter somehow contracted pink eye. I had taken her to the doctor thinking that maybe she had just scratched it or something but that wasn't the case. I had been wanting to try using oils but my husband was a bit reluctant so I hadn't spent the money on them yet.

A friend of mine who is now also my sponsor made up a sample of the Purification oil blend and Lavender (3 drops of each in a tablespoon of grape seed oil) since Purification can be very strong for little ones I was told.

In two days the pinkeye was gone, her other eye never caught the infection and none of the other members of my household caught it either.

Needless to say that caused my husband to take interest and we made our first oil purchase last week, so I'm really excited about trying the oils.

The doctor informed me that the medicated eye drops would have taken four days to heal her eye completely and I wasn't keen on the idea of putting toxic medication, in my six year old's eye to begin with.

Thank God for essential oils!!
