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.


My 11 year old son was stung by a scorpion tonight (guess he'll be wearing flip flops around the house in the future). I sat him down and immediately applied the Purification oil blend to the sting to help his body handle the venom. Then I applied a drop of each Lavender, Copaiba and Thieves right on the site as well based on some testimonials I read on this website.

It must have helped because within a few minutes he asked me if I could bring him his Kindle to distract him. He said it still hurt but not as much (from a 10 to a 7). There's been no swelling, just a red spot where he was stung. It hasn't traveled up his foot or leg. I applied each of the oils about every 5-10 mins until he went to bed.

He did say that the Thieves seemed to intensify the pain so we only applied Copaiba, Purification, Lavender the remainder of the time.
It's now about an hour later, he's sound asleep with Lavender on his spine and Cedarwood on his brainstem (to assist him in chilling out). He said his pain was a 2 or 3 before he slept.

The next day I emailed his teacher later in morning to tell her to call me if he complains of pain. She said he hadn't even mentioned that he had been stung the night before! Clearly he had no pain or tingling which is very common for a few days after a scorpion sting. He was good to go (free of pain or other symptoms) in such a short time... not even 12 hours. You can't use your oils if you don't have them on hand for moments like this!
