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.

We lived in an area where there were lots of biting / stinging insects; bees, wasps, yellow jackets, etc. We began to use the Purification oil blend by Young Living with terrific results. When we applied it IMMEDIATELY, the pain was gone in very little time - a few minutes, as well as any other side affects. We began to carry it in our pockets.

One time however, my husband was bitten while he was on the lawn mower and didn't have any in his pocket. Therefore, he waited longer than usual to apply the oil to the wasp sting. By the time he applied the oil - his hand was swollen up and it wasn't as effective as usual. It took several hours for the swelling to go down and pain to subside.

Another time, we didn't have the Purification oil handy and thinking ANY oil was better than NO oil - we were right. Whatever we grabbed from Lavender to Peppermint, to Melaleuca to Thieves. Whatever we had on hand it has consistently aided in relieving the pain and reducing the swelling/itching of insect bites.

While Purification remains our favorite and most effective choice - don't get stuck thinking that if you don't have that ONE blend or single oil - you have to skip it altogether. They all have multiple benefits!

As a reference, Purification contains: Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus), Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis), Melaleuca (Melaleuca alternifolia) lavandin (Lavandula x hybrida), and Myrtle (Myrtus communis).
