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 got a spider bite in the center of my armpit. It was hard, red and painful. Next day it became crazy itchy. I applied one drop of Lavender with three drops V-6 oil. It felt better in about 10 minutes.

My big mistake was shaving my underarms the next day. I must have cut the bite area as it was swollen. It spread the venom to the entire underarm area. Very painful with extreme itching. I had to walk around with my arm away from my body and sleep with my arm up. The Lavender continued to help but the rash by this time was angry and red and very painful and spreading. I was getting very nervous.

I applied Lavender and V-6 oil again and then topped it with some Animal Scents Ointment. Within a couple of minutes I felt total relief!

I'm very allergic to insect bites and feel nauseated and sick when I get them. I'm so grateful for Young Living Oils.
